10:22 Joshua said, “Open the cave’s mouth and bring the five kings 3  out of the cave to me.” 10:23 They did as ordered; 4  they brought the five kings 5  out of the cave to him – the kings of Jerusalem, 6  Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish, and Eglon. 10:24 When they brought the kings out to Joshua, he 7  summoned all the men of Israel and said to the commanders of the troops who accompanied him, “Come here 8  and put your feet on the necks of these kings.” So they came up 9  and put their feet on their necks. 10:25 Then Joshua said to them, “Don’t be afraid and don’t panic! 10  Be strong and brave, for the Lord will do the same thing to all your enemies you fight.
