Joshua 9:1-27
1. And when all the kings that dwell on this side Jordan, in the hills and valleys, and along by all the coasts of the great sea, even unto Libanon, the Hethites, the Amorites, the Cananites, the Pheresites, the Hevites, and the Jebusites heard:
2. they gathered themselves together to fight against Josua and Israel with one accord.
3. But when the Inhabiters of Gibeon heard what Josua had done unto Jericho, and Ai,
4. they played wilily, and went and sent ambassadors, and took old sacks upon their Asses, and wine bottles old and rent and knit together again,
5. and old clouted shoes upon their feet, and old raiment upon them and all their provision of bread was dried up and hoared.
6. And they came unto Josua unto the host, to Gilgal and said unto him and unto the men of Israel: we be come from a far country, now therefore make agreement with us.
7. And the men of Israel said unto the Hevites, peradventure you dwell among us, and then how should we make peace with you.
8. And they said unto Josua, we are thy servants. And Josua said unto them, what are ye: and whence come ye?
9. And they answered him. From a very far country thy servants are come in the name of the LORD thy God: for we have heard the fame of him, and all that he did in Egypt,
10. and all that he did to the two kings of the Amorites beyond Jordan, Sehon king of Hesbon and Og king of Basan which dwelt at Astharoth.
11. Wherefore our elders and all the Enhabiters of our country spake to us saying: take vitailles with you to serve by the way, and go against them, and say unto them we are your servants. Now therefore make a covenant of peace with us.
12. This our provision of bread, we took with us out of our houses, hot, the day we departed to come unto you. And now behold it is dried up and hoared.
13. And these bottles of wine which we filled were new: and see, they be rent. And these our garments and shoes are waxen old by reason of the exceeding long Journey.
14. And the men took of their vitailles, and counselled not with the mouth of the LORD.
15. And Josua made peace with them, and made a covenant with them, to save their lives: and the lords of the congregation sware unto them.
16. But three days after they had made peace with them, they heard that they were neighbours unto them, and that they dwelt among them.
17. For the children of Israel took their Journey and came unto their cities the third day: and their cities were Gabaon, Caphira, Beeroth and Kariath Jarim.
18. And the children of Israel slew them not, because the lords of the congregation had sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel. And therefore all the multitude murmured against the lords.
19. But all the lords said unto all the congregation: we have sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel, and therefore we may not hurt them.
20. But this we will do to them and let them live: and so shall no wrath be upon us because of the oath which we sware unto them.
21. And the lords said unto them, that they should live: and they were made hewers of wood and drawers of water unto all the congregation, as the lords said unto them.
22. Then Josua sent for them, and talked with them, and said: wherefore have ye beguiled us and yet ye dwell among us?
23. and now therefore cursed be you, and there shall not cease to be of you, bondmen and hewers of wood and drawers of water unto the house of my God.
24. And they answered Josua and said: it was told thy servants, how that the LORD thy God had commanded his servant Moses to give you all the land, and to destroy all the Enhabiters thereof out of your sight, and therefore we were exceeding sore afraid of our lives because of you,
25. and now behold, we are in thine hand, as it seemeth good and right in thine eyes to do unto us, so do.
26. And he dealt as it is said, with them, and rid them out of the hands of the children of Israel, that they slew them not.
27. And Josua made them that same day hewers of wood and drawers of water unto the congregation and unto the altar of GOD unto this day, in the place which God should choose.

Joshua 10:1-43
1. And when Adonizedec king of Jerusalem had heard how Josua had taken Ai, and had destroyed it, and how that as he had done to Jericho and her king, even so he had done to Ai and her king, and how the Inhabiters of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and did remain among them:
2. then they feared exceedingly, for Gabaon was a great city, as any city of the kingdom, and thereto greater than Ai, and all her men were mighty.
3. Wherefore Adonizedec king of Jerusalem sent unto Hoham king of Hebron, and unto Pharam king of Jerimoth, and unto Japhia king of Lachis, and unto Dabir king of Eglon saying:
4. Come up unto me and help me, that we may smite Gabaon: for they have made peace with Josua and the children of Israel.
5. Then the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jerimoth, the king of Lachis, the king of Eglon gathered themselves together, both they and all their hosts and went up and besieged Gabaon, and made war against it.
6. But the men of Gabaon sent unto Josua unto the host to Gilgal, saying: withdraw not thy hands from thy servants, but come up to us: for all the kings of the Amorites which dwell in the mountains are gathered together against us.
7. And Josua ascended from Gilgal, both he and all the people of war with him, and all the men of might,
8. and the LORD said unto Josua, fear them not, for I have delivered them unto thine hand, there shall not a man of them stand before thee.
9. And Josua came unto them suddenly, and journeyed from Gilgal all night.
10. And the LORD turmoiled(discomfited) them before Israel and slew of them a great slaughter at Gabaon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethoron and slew them till they came to Esaka and Makeda.
11. And as they fled from Israel, even in the going down to Bethoron, the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them, until they came unto Esaka, that they died. And there were more that died with hailstones, than the children of Israel slew with the sword.
12. Then spake Josua unto the LORD, the day when the LORD delivered the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of all Israel: Son stand thou still upon Gabaon, and thou Moon, in the valley of Aialon.
13. And the sun abode, and the moon stood still, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of the righteous, how that the son abode in the midst of heaven and hasted not to go down by the space of a whole day.
14. And there was no day like that, before it, or after it, that the LORD obeyed the voice of a man: and all because the LORD fought for Israel.
15. And Josua returned and all Israel with him, unto the host to Gilgal:
16. but the five kings fled and hid themselves in a cave at Makeda.
17. And it was told Josua, saying: the five kings are found hid in a cave at Makeda.
18. And Josua said, roll great stones unto the mouth of the cave and appoint men thereto, for to keep them.
19. And stand ye not still, but follow after your enemies and smite the hindmost of them. And suffer them not to enter into their cities, for the LORD your God hath delivered them into your hands.
20. And when Josua and the children of Israel had made an end of slaying them with a great slaughter till they were wasted, yet there remained a certain of them, which entered into walled cities.
21. And all the people returned to the host, to Josua at Makeda in peace, so that no man durst move his tongue against the children of Israel.
22. Then said Josua: open the mouth of the cave, and bring out these five kings unto me out of the cave.
23. And they did so, and brought those five kings unto him, out of the cave: the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jerimoth the king of Lachis, and the king of Eglon.
24. And when they had brought out those kings unto Josua: Josua called for all the men of Israel, and said unto the captains of the men of war, which came with him, come near and put your feet upon the necks of these kings. And they came near and put their feet upon the necks of them.
25. And Josua said unto them fear not nor dread: But be strong and pluck up your hearts, for so shall the LORD serve all your enemies against which ye fight.
26. And then Josua smote them and slew them and hanged them on five trees till evening.
27. And at the going down of the son, Josua gave commandment, and they took them down off the trees and cast them into the cave, where they hid themselves, and laid great stones on the cave's mouth, which remain unto this day.
28. And that same day Josua took Makeda, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof also, and utterly destroyed them and all the souls that were therein, and let nought remain. And he did to the king of Makeda, as he did to the king of Jericho.
29. Then Josua went from Makeda, and all Israel with him unto Libna, and fought against Libna.
30. And the LORD delivered it also into their hands, with the king also and smote it with the edge of the sword and all the souls that were therein, and let nought remain in it, and did unto the king thereof as he did unto the king of Jericho.
31. After that Josua departed from Libna, and all Israel with him, unto Lachis, and besieged it, and assaulted it.
32. And the LORD delivered into the hands of Israel Lachis, that they took it the Second day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein, according to all that he did to Libna.
33. Then Horam king of Geser came up to help Lachis: But Josua smote him and his people, until he left him nought remaining.
34. And from Lachis Josua departed, unto Eglon, and all Israel with him, and there besieged it, and assaulted it,
35. and took it the same day, and smote it with the edge of the sword and all the souls that were therein: and utterly destroyed them the same day, according to all that he did to Lachis.
36. Then Josua departed up from Eglon and all Israel with him, unto Hebron. And they fought against it,
37. and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof, and all the towns that pertained to it, and all the souls that were therein, so that they left nought remaining: but in all things as they did to Eglon, so they destroyed it utterly, and all the souls that were therein.
38. Then Josua returned and all Israel with him to Dabir, and they fought against it,
39. and took it, and the king thereof and all the towns that pertained thereto. And smote them with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed all the souls that were therein, and let nought remain. And as he did to Hebron, so he did to Dabir, and the king thereof, and as he did to Libna and her king.
40. And Josua smote all the hill countries and the south countries, and the valleys, and the springs of water, with all their kings and let nought remain, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the LORD God of Israel commanded.
41. And Josua smote them from Cades Barne, unto Asah, and all the coasts of Gosan, even unto Gabaon.
42. And all those kings and their land, Josua took at one time: because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel.
43. And then Josua returned and all Israel with him unto the host to Gilgal.

Psalms 44:1-3
1. To the Chanter, an instruction of the sons of Korah We have heard with our ears, (O God) our fathers have told us, what thou hast done in their time of old.
2. How thou hast driven out the Heathen with thy hand, and planted them in: how thou hast destroyed the nations and cast them out.
3. For they gat not the land in possession thorow their own sword, neither was it their own arm that helped them. But thy right hand, thine arm and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.

Proverbs 13:24-25
24. He that spareth the rod, hateth his son: but who so loveth him, holdeth him ever in nurture.
25. The righteous eateth, and is satisfied, but the belly of the ungodly hath never enough.

Luke 10:1-24
1. After that,(these things) the Lord appointed other seventy (and two) also, and sent them, two and two, before his face,(him) into every city, and place, whither he himself would come.
2. And (he) said unto them: the harvest is great: but the laborers are few. Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, to send forth laborers into his harvest.
3. Go your ways. Behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
4. Bear no wallet, neither scrip, nor shoes, and salute no man by the way.
5. In (to) whatsoever house ye enter in, first say: Peace be to this house.
6. And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon him, if not, it shall return to you again.
7. And in the same house tarry still eating and drinking, such as they have. For the laborer is worthy of his reward. Go not from house to house:
8. and into whatsoever city ye enter, if they receive you, eat whatsoever is(such things as are) set before you,
9. and heal the sick that are there, and say unto them: the kingdom of God is come nigh upon you.
10. But into whatsoever city ye shall enter, if they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say:
11. even the very dust, which cleaveth on us of your city, we wipe off against you: Notwithstanding, mark this, that the kingdom of God was come nigh upon you.
12. Yea and I say unto you: that it shall be easier in that day, for Sodom than for that city.
13. Woe be to thee Chorazin: woe be to thee Bethsaida. For if the miracles had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while agone repented, sitting in hair(sackcloth) and ashes.
14. Nevertheless it shall be easier for Tyre and Sidon, at the judgement, than for you.
15. And thou Capernaum which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell;
16. whosoever(He that) heareth you, heareth me: And whosoever(he that) despiseth you, despiseth me. And he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me.
17. (And) The seventy returned again with joy saying: Lord even the very devils are subdued to us thorow thy name.
18. And he said unto them: I saw sathan, as it had been lightning, fall down from heaven.
19. Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents, and scorpions, and upon(over) all manner power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.
20. Nevertheless, in this rejoice not, that the spirits are under your power:(subdued unto you) But rejoice because your names are written in heaven.
21. That same time rejoiced Jesus in the spirit,(holy ghost) and said: I praise(confess unto) thee father Lord of heaven and earth, because(that) thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast opened them to the foolish.(babes.) Even so father, for so pleased it thee.
22. All things are given me of my father. And no man knoweth who the son is, but the father: neither who the father is, save the son, and he to whom the son will shew him.
23. And he turned to his disciples, and said secretly: Happy(said in especial: Blessed) are the eyes, which see that ye see.
24. For I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them: And to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them:
