Siyakwenza lokho kubo, sibayeke baphile, funa sehlelwe lulaka ngenxa yesifungo esasifunga kubo.” 21Izikhulu zase zithi kubo: “Mabayekwe baphile; baba ngabagawuli bemithi nabakhi bamanzi kuyo yonke inhlangano njengalokho izikhulu zazibatshelile.”

22UJoshuwa wababiza, wakhuluma kubo, wathi: “Nisikhohliseleni ngokuthi: ‘Sikude kakhulu nani,’ lokhu nakhile phakathi kwethu, na? 23Ngalokho seniqalekisiwe, akuyikunqamuka ukuvela kini izigqila, abagawuli bemithi nabakhi bamanzi kuyo indlu kaNkulunkulu wami.”

5Ngalokho amakhosi ayisihlanu ama-Amori, inkosi yaseJerusalema, nenkosi yaseHebroni, nenkosi yaseJarimuthi, nenkosi yaseLakishi, nenkosi yase-Egiloni, ahlangana, akhuphuka, wona nawo onke amabandla awo, amisa malungana neGibeyoni, alwa nalo.

6Amadoda aseGibeyoni athumela kuJoshuwa ekamu* laseGiligali, athi: “Ungayekethisi isandla sakho ezincekwini zakho; shesha ukhuphukele kithi usisindise, usisize, ngokuba onke amakhosi ama-Amori akhile ezintabeni asihlanganyele.”

UJehova wathi kuJoshuwa: “Ungabesabi, ngokuba ngibanikele ezandleni zakho; akuyikubakho muntu wabo ongema phambi kwakho.”

23:27
UJehova wabangquzula ngaphambi kuka-Israyeli, wabaceka ngokuceka okukhulu ngaseGibeyoni, wabaxosha ngendlela ekhuphukela eBeti Horoni, wababulala kwaze kwaba se-Azeka naseMakheda. 11
10:11
Eks. 9:17,22
Kwathi besabalekela u-Israyeli behla eBeti Horoni, uJehova wawisa phezu kwabo amatshe amakhulu, ehla ezulwini, baze bafika e-Azeka, bafa; babe baningi abafa ngesichotho kunababulawa ngu-Israyeli ngenkemba.

Akulotshiwe yini lokho eNcwadini Yolungileyo na? Ilanga lema phakathi nomkhathi, alisheshanga ukushona kungathi usuku lonke. 14Aluzange lube khona usuku olunjengalo ngaphambi kwalo noma ngasemva kwalo lokuba uJehova alilalele izwi lomuntu, ngokuba uJehova wamlwela u-Israyeli.

15UJoshuwa wabuyela ekamu* laseGiligali, bonke abakwa-Israyeli benaye.

16Lawo makhosi omahlanu abaleka, acasha emhumeni waseMakheda. 17Kwabikwa kuJoshuwa ukuthi: “Lawo makhosi omahlanu afunyanisiwe ecashile emhumeni waseMakheda.” 18UJoshuwa wathi: “Gingqelani amatshe amakhulu emlonyeni womhume, nibeke amadoda ngakuwo ukuba awalinde; 19kepha ningemi nina; xoshani izitha zenu, nibulale ezingasemuva, ningazivumeli ukuba zingene emizini yazo, ngokuba uJehova uNkulunkulu wenu uzinikele esandleni senu.”

20Kwathi lapho uJoshuwa nabantwana bakwa-Israyeli sebeqedile ukubaceka ngokuceka okukhulu kakhulu baze baqedwa, insali yabo nokho isingenile emizini ebiyelweyo, 21bonke abantu babuyela ekamu* kuJoshuwa eMakheda ngokuthula, akwabakho onyakazisa ulimi lwakhe ngomuntu wabantwana bakwa-Israyeli.

22Wayesethi uJoshuwa: “Vulani umlomo womhume, nikhiphele kimi lawo makhosi omahlanu emhumeni.” 23Benze njalo-ke; bawakhiphela kuye lawo makhosi omahlanu emhumeni: inkosi yaseJerusalema, nenkosi yaseHebroni, nenkosi yaseJarimuthi, nenkosi yaseLakishi, nenkosi yase-Egiloni. 24Kwathi lapho bekhiphela kuJoshuwa lawo makhosi, uJoshuwa wabiza onke amadoda akwa-Israyeli, wathi ezinduneni zamadoda empi ezazihamba naye: “Sondelani, nibeke izinyawo zenu ezintanyeni zalawa makhosi.” Zasondela-ke, zabeka izinyawo zazo ezintanyeni zawo.

25UJoshuwa wathi kuzo: “Ningesabi, ningabi naluvalo; qinani, nime isibindi, ngokuba uJehova uyakwenza kanjalo kuzo zonke izitha zenu enilwa nazo.” 26

10:26
Dut. 21:22
Josh. 8:29
Ngasemuva uJoshuwa wawagenca, wawabulala, wawaphanyeka emithini eyisihlanu, alenga emithini kwaze kwahlwa.

27Kwathi ngesikhathi sokushona kwelanga uJoshuwa wayala, bawehlisa emithini, bawaphonsa emhumeni lapho ebecashe khona, babeka amatshe amakhulu emlonyeni womhume; akhona nanamuhla.

Ukunqotshwa kwemizi ngaseningizimu yaseKhanani

28UJoshuwa wathatha iMakheda ngalolo suku, walichitha ngosiko lwenkemba kanye nenkosi yalo, wabaqothula nabo bonke abakulo, akashiyanga noyedwa owasalayo; wenza-ke kuyo inkosi yaseMakheda njengalokho ebenzile kuyo inkosi yaseJeriko.

29UJoshuwa wasuka eMakheda nabo bonke abakwa-Israyeli benaye, waya eLibina, walwa neLibina; 30uJehova walinikela nalo nenkosi yalo esandleni sakwa-Israyeli, walichitha ngosiko lwenkemba nabo bonke abakulo, akashiyanga noyedwa owasala phakathi kwalo; wenza-ke kuyo inkosi yalo njengalokho ebenzile kuyo inkosi yaseJeriko.

31UJoshuwa wasuka eLibina nabo bonke abakwa-Israyeli benaye, waya eLakishi, wamisa malungana nalo, walwa nalo; 32uJehova wanikela iLakishi esandleni sakwa-Israyeli, walithatha ngosuku lwesibili, walichitha ngosiko lwenkemba kanye nabo bonke ababekulo njengakho konke abekwenzile kulo iLibina.

33Khona kwakhuphuka uHoramu inkosi yaseGezeri ukuba asize iLakishi; kepha uJoshuwa wambulala nabantu bakhe, akaze amshiyela noyedwa owasalayo.

34UJoshuwa wasuka eLakishi, bonke abakwa-Israyeli benaye, waya e-Egiloni; bamisa malungana nalo, balwa nalo. 35Balithatha ngalolo suku, balichitha ngosiko lwenkemba; nabo bonke ababekulo wabaqothula ngalolo suku njengakho konke abekwenzile kulo iLakishi.

36UJoshuwa wakhuphuka e-Egiloni, bonke abakwa-Israyeli benaye, waya eHebroni, balwa nalo. 37Balithatha, balichitha ngosiko lwenkemba kanye nenkosi yalo, nayo yonke imizi yalo, nabo bonke ababekulo; akashiyanga noyedwa owasalayo njengakho konke abekwenzile kulo i-Egiloni, waliqothula nabo bonke abakulo.

38UJoshuwa wabuyela nabo bonke abakwa-Israyeli eDebiri, walwa nalo; 39walithatha kanye nenkosi yalo nayo yonke imizi yalo, bayichitha ngosiko lwenkemba. Baqothula bonke ababekulo, akashiyanga noyedwa owasalayo; njengalokho ebenzile kulo iHebroni, wenze njalo kulo iDebiri nakuyo inkosi yalo, njengalokho ebenzile nakulo iLibina nakuyo inkosi yalo.

Ukunqotshwa kwenyakatho yaseKhanani

111Kwathi lapho uJabini inkosi yaseHasori ekuzwa lokho, wathumela kuJobabi inkosi yaseMadoni, nakuyo inkosi yaseShimroni, nakuyo inkosi yase-Akishafu, 2nakuwo amakhosi angasenyakatho ezintabeni, nase-Araba ngaseningizimu kwaseKinereti, nasemathafeni, nasezintabeni zaseDori ngasentshonalanga, 3nakuwo amaKhanani ngasempumalanga nangasentshonalanga, nakuwo ama-Amori, namaHeti, namaPherizi, namaJebusi ezintabeni, namaHivi ngaphansi kweHermoni ezweni laseMispa. 4Aphuma wona nawo onke amabandla awo enawo, abantu abaningi, bengangesihlabathi esisogwini lolwandle ngobuningi, namahhashi nezinqola eziningi kakhulu. 5Onke lawo makhosi ahlangana, eza amisa ndawonye ngasemanzini aseMerome ukuba alwe no-Israyeli.

6UJehova wathi kuJoshuwa: “Ungesabi ngenxa yabo, ngokuba kusasa ngalesi sikhathi ngizakubanikela bonke bebulewe ngaphambi kuka-Israyeli; wena uyakunquma amahhashi abo imisipha, uzishise izinqola zabo ngomlilo.”

7Wayesefika uJoshuwa nabo bonke abantu bempi benaye, babazuma ngasemanzini aseMerome, babadumela. 8

UJehova wabanikela esandleni sakwa-Israyeli, babanqoba, babaxosha kwaze kwaba seSidoni Elikhulu, naseMisirefoti Mayimi, nasesigodini saseMispa ngasempumalanga, bababulala, abaze bamshiyela noyedwa owasalayo. 9UJoshuwa wenza kubo njengokumyala kukaJehova: wanquma amahhashi abo imisipha, wazishisa izinqola zabo ngomlilo.

10UJoshuwa wabuya ngaleso sikhathi, wathatha iHasori, wabulala inkosi yalo ngenkemba, ngokuba iHasori laliyinhloko yayo yonke leyo mibuso kuqala. 11Bachitha bonke ababekulo ngosiko lwenkemba, babaqothula, akusalanga noyedwa ophefumulayo; walishisa iHasori ngomlilo.
