Joshua 9:3-15

And when the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Gibeon
<01391>
heard
<08085> (8804)
what Joshua
<03091>
had done
<06213> (8804)
unto Jericho
<03405>
and to Ai
<05857>_,
They did work
<06213> (8799)
wilily
<06195>_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
and made as if they had been ambassadors
<06737> (8691)_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
old
<01087>
sacks
<08242>
upon their asses
<02543>_,
and wine
<03196>
bottles
<04997>_,
old
<01087>_,
and rent
<01234> (8794)_,
and bound up
<06887> (8794)_;
And old
<01087>
shoes
<05275>
and clouted
<02921> (8794)
upon their feet
<07272>_,
and old
<01087>
garments
<08008>
upon them; and all the bread
<03899>
of their provision
<06718>
was dry
<03001> (8804)
[and] mouldy
<05350>_.
And they went
<03212> (8799)
to Joshua
<03091>
unto the camp
<04264>
at Gilgal
<01537>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, and to the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>_,
We be come
<0935> (8804)
from a far
<07350>
country
<0776>_:
now therefore make
<03772> (8798)
ye a league
<01285>
with us.
And the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the Hivites
<02340>_,
Peradventure
<0194>
ye dwell
<03427> (8802)
among
<07130>
us; and how shall we make
<03772> (8799)
a league
<01285>
with you?
And they said
<0559> (8799)
unto Joshua
<03091>_,
We [are] thy servants
<05650>_.
And Joshua
<03091>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Who [are] ye? and from whence
<0370>
come
<0935> (8799)
ye?
And they said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, From a very
<03966>
far
<07350>
country
<0776>
thy servants
<05650>
are come
<0935> (8804)
because of the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_:
for we have heard
<08085> (8804)
the fame
<08089>
of him, and all that he did
<06213> (8804)
in Egypt
<04714>_,
And all that he did
<06213> (8804)
to the two
<08147>
kings
<04428>
of the Amorites
<0567>_,
that [were] beyond
<05676>
Jordan
<03383>_,
to Sihon
<05511>
king
<04428>
of Heshbon
<02809>_,
and to Og
<05747>
king
<04428>
of Bashan
<01316>_,
which [was] at Ashtaroth
<06252>_.
Wherefore our elders
<02205>
and all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of our country
<0776>
spake
<0559> (8799)
to us, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Take
<03947> (8798)
victuals
<06720>
with you
<03027>
for the journey
<01870>_,
and go
<03212> (8798)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
them, and say
<0559> (8804)
unto them, We [are] your servants
<05650>_:
therefore now make
<03772> (8798)
ye a league
<01285>
with us. {with you: Heb. in your hand}
This our bread
<03899>
we took hot
<02525>
[for] our provision
<06679> (8694)
out of our houses
<01004>
on the day
<03117>
we came forth
<03318> (8800)
to go
<03212> (8800)
unto you; but now, behold, it is dry
<03001> (8804)_,
and it is mouldy
<05350>_:
And these bottles
<04997>
of wine
<03196>_,
which we filled
<04390> (8765)_,
[were] new
<02319>_;
and, behold, they be rent
<01234> (8694)_:
and these our garments
<08008>
and our shoes
<05275>
are become old
<01086> (8804)
by reason of the very
<03966>
long
<07230>
journey
<01870>_.
And the men
<0582>
took
<03947> (8799)
of their victuals
<06718>_,
and asked
<07592> (8804)
not [counsel] at the mouth
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{the men...: or, they received the men by reason of their victuals}
And Joshua
<03091>
made
<06213> (8799)
peace
<07965>
with them, and made
<03772> (8799)
a league
<01285>
with them, to let them live
<02421> (8763)_:
and the princes
<05387>
of the congregation
<05712>
sware
<07650> (8735)
unto them.
