1 And it came to pass after the death of Joshua, that the children of Israel enquired of the Lord, saying, Who shall go up for us first against the Chananites, to fight against them? 2 And the Lord said, Judas shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand. 3 And Judas said to his brother Symeon, Come up with me into my lot, and let us array ourselves against the Chananites, and I also will go with thee into thy lot: and Symeon went with him. 4 And Judas went up; and the Lord delivered the Chananite and the Pherezite into their hands, and they smote them in Bezek to [the number of] ten thousand men. 5 And they overtook Adonibezek in Bezek, and fought against him; and they smote the Chananite and the Pherezite. 6 And Adonibezek fled, and they pursued after him, and took him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes. 7 And Adonibezek said, Seventy kings, having heir thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered [their food] under my table: as I therefore have done, so God has recompensed me: and they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died there. 8 And the children of Judas fought against Jerusalem, and took it, and smote with the edge of the sword, and they burnt the city with fire. 9 And afterwards the children of Judas went down to fight with the Chananite dwelling in the hill country, and the south, and the plain country. 10 And Judas went to the Chananite who dwelt in Chebron; and Chebron came out against him; [[and the name of Chebron before was Cariatharbocsepher:]] and they smote Sessi, and Achiman, and Tholmi, children of Enac. 11 And they went up thence to the inhabitants of Dabir; but the name of Dabir was before Cariathsepher, the city of Letters. 12 And Chaleb said, Whosoever shall smite the city of Letters, and shall first take it, I will give to him Ascha my daughter to wife. 13 And Gothoniel the younger son of Kenez the brother of Chaleb took it; and Chaleb gave him his daughter Ascha to wife. 14 And it came to pass as she went in, that Gothoniel urged her to ask a field of her father; and she murmured and cried from off her ass, Thou hast sent me forth into a south land: and Chaleb said to her, What is thy request? 15 And Ascha said to him, Give me, I pray thee, a blessing, for thou hast sent me forth into a south land, and thou shalt give me the ransom of water: and Chaleb gave her according to her heart the ransom of the upper [springs] and the ransom of the low [springs]. 16 And the children of Jothor the Kenite the father-in-law of Moses went up from the city of palm-trees with the children of Judas, to the wilderness that is in the south of Juda, which is at the descent of Arad, and they dwelt with the people. 17 And Judas went with Symeon his brother, and smote the Chananite that inhabited Sepheth, and they utterly destroyed them; and they called the name of the city Anathema. 18 But Judas did not inherit Gaza nor her coasts nor Ascalon nor her coasts, nor Accaron nor her coasts, [nor] Azotus nor the lands around it. 19 And the Lord was with Judas, and he inherited the mountain; for they were not able to destroy the inhabitants of the valley, for Rechab prevented them. 20 And they gave Chebron to Chaleb, as Moses said; and thence he inherited the three cities of the children of Enac. 21 But the children of Benjamin did not take the inheritance of the Jebusite who dwelt in Jerusalem; and the Jebusite dwelt with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem until this day. 22 And the sons of Joseph, they also went up to Baethel; and the Lord was with them. 23 And they encamped and surveyed Baethel: and the name of the city before was Luza. 24 And the spies looked, and behold, a man went out of the city, and they took him; and they said to him, Shew us the way into the city, and we will deal mercifully with thee. 25 And he shewed them the way into the city; and they smote the city with the edge of the sword; but they let go the man and his family. 26 And the man went into the land of Chettin, and built there a city, and called the name of it Luza; this [is] its name until this day. 27 And Manasse did not drive out [the inhabitants of] Baethsan, which is a city of Scythians, nor her towns, nor her suburbs; nor Thanac, nor her towns; nor the inhabitants of Dor, nor her suburbs, nor her towns; nor the inhabitant of Balac, nor her suburbs, nor her towns; nor the inhabitants of Magedo, nor her suburbs, nor her towns; nor the inhabitants of Jeblaam, nor her suburbs, nor her towns; and the Chananite began to dwell in this land. 28 And it came to pass when Israel was strong, that he made the Chananite tributary, but did not utterly drive them out. 29 And Ephraim did not drive out the Chananite that dwelt in Gazer; and the Chananite dwelt in the midst of him in Gazer, and became tributary. 30 And Zabulon did not drive out the inhabitants of Kedron, nor the inhabitants of Domana: and the Chananite dwelt in the midst of them, and became tributary to them. 31 And Aser did not drive out the inhabitants of Accho, and [that people] became tributary to him, nor the inhabitants of Dor, nor the inhabitants of Sidon, nor the inhabitants of Dalaph, nor Aschazi, nor Chebda, nor Nai, nor Ereo. 32 And Aser dwelt in the midst of the Chananite who inhabited the land, for he could not drive him out. 33 And Nephthali did not drive out the inhabitants of Baethsamys, nor the inhabitants of Baethanach; and Nephthali dwelt in the midst of the Chananite who inhabited the land: but the inhabitants of Bethsamys and of Baetheneth became tributary to them. 34 And the Amorite drove out the children of Dan into the mountains, for they did not suffer them to come down into the valley. 35 And the Amorite began to dwell in the mountain of shells, in which [are] bears, and foxes, in Myrsinon, and in Thalabin; and the hand of the house of Joseph was heavy upon the Amorite, and he became tributary to them. 36 And the border of the Amorite [was] from the going up of Acrabin, from the rock and upwards.
ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὴν τελευτὴν ᾿Ιησοῦ καὶ ἐπηρώτων οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ διὰ τοῦ Κυρίου λέγοντες· τίς ἀναβήσεται ἡμῖν πρὸς τοὺς Χαναναίους ἀφηγούμενος τοῦ πολεμῆσαι πρὸς αὐτούς; 2 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος· ᾿Ιούδας ἀναβήσεται. ἰδοὺ δέδωκα τὴν γῆν ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ. 3 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιούδας τῷ Συμεὼν ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ· ἀνάβηθι μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἐν τῷ κλήρῳ μου, καὶ παραταξώμεθα πρὸς τοὺς Χαναναίους, καὶ πορεύσομαι κἀγὼ μετὰ σοῦ ἐν τῷ κλήρῳ σου. καὶ ἐπορεύθη μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ Συμεών. 4 καὶ ἀνέβη ᾿Ιούδας, καὶ παρέδωκε Κύριος τὸν Χαναναῖον καὶ τὸν Φερεζαῖον εἰς τὰς χεῖρας αὐτῶν. καὶ ἔκοψαν αὐτοὺς ἐν Βεζὰκ εἰς δέκα χιλιάδας ἀνδρῶν. 5 καὶ κατέλαβον τὸν ᾿Αδωνιβεζὲκ ἐν τῇ Βεζὲκ καὶ παρετάξαντο πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ ἔκοψαν τὸν Χαναναῖον καὶ Φερεζαῖον. 6 καὶ ἔφυγεν ᾿Αδωνιβεζέκ, καὶ κατέδραμον ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐλάβοσαν αὐτὸν καὶ ἀπέκοψαν τὰ ἄκρα τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ἄκρα τῶ ποδῶν αὐτοῦ. 7 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Αδωνιβεζέκ· ἑβδομήκοντα βασιλεῖς τὰ ἄκρα τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ ἄκρα τῶν ποδῶν αὐτῶν ἀποκεκομμένοι ἦσαν συλλέγοντες τὰ ὑποκάτω τῆς τραπέζης μου· καθὼς οὖν ἐποίησα, οὕτως ἀνταπέδωκέ μοι ὁ Θεός. καὶ ἄγουσιν αὐτὸν εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐκεῖ.
8 Καὶ ἐπολέμουν υἱοὶ ᾿Ιούδα τὴν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ κα’Ι κατελάβοντο αὐτὴν καὶ ἐπάταξαν αὐτὴν ἐν στόματι ρομφαίας καὶ τὴν πόλιν ἐνέπρησαν ἐν πυρί. 9 καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα κατέβησαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιούδα πολεμῆσαι πρὸς τὸν Χαναναῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα τὴν ὀρεινὴν καὶ τὸ νότιον καὶ τὴν πεδινήν. 10 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ᾿Ιούδας πρὸς τὸν Χαναναῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα ἐν Χεβρών, καὶ ἐξῆλθε Χεβρὼν ἐξ ἐναντίας· καὶ τὸ ὄνομα ἦν Χεβρὼν τὸ πρότερον Καριαθαρβοκσεφέρ. καὶ ἐπάταξαν τὸν Σεσσὶ καὶ ᾿Αχιναὰν καὶ Θολμί, γεννήματα τοῦ ᾿Ενάκ. 11 καὶ ἀνέβησαν ἐκεῖθεν πρὸς τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Δαβίρ· τὸ δὲ ὄνομα τῆς Δαβὶρ ἦν ἔμπροσθεν Καριαθσεφάρ, Πόλις γραμμάτων. 12 καὶ εἶπε Χάλεβ· ὃς ἂν πατάξῃ τὴν Πόλιν τῶν γραμμάτων καὶ προκαταλάβηται αὐτήν, δώσω αὐτῷ τὴν ᾿Ασχὰ θυγατέρα μου εἰς γυναῖκα. 13 καὶ προκατελάβετο αὐτὴν Γοθονιὴλ υἱὸς Κενὲζ ἀδελφοῦ Χάλεβ ὁ νεώτερος, καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ Χάλεβ τὴν ᾿Ασχὰ θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ εἰς γυναῖκα. 14 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῇ εἰσόδῳ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπέσεισεν αὐτὴν Γοθονιὴλ τοῦ αἰτῆσαι παρὰ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς ἀγρόν, καὶ ἐγόγγυζε καὶ ἔκραξεν ἀπὸ τοῦ ὑποζυγίου· εἰς γῆν νότου ἐκδέδοσαί με. καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ Χάλεβ· τί ἐστί σοι; 15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ᾿Ασχά· δὸς δή μοι εὐλογίαν, ὅτι εἰς γῆν νότου ἐκδέδοσαί με, καὶ δώσεις μοι λύτρωσιν ὕδατος. καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῇ Χάλεβ κατὰ τὴν καρδίαν αὐτῆς λύτρωσιν μετεώρων καὶ λύτρωσιν ταπεινῶν.
16 Καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιοθὸρ τοῦ Κιναίου τοῦ γαμβροῦ Μωυσῆ ἀνέβησαν ἐκ πόλεως τῶν φοινίκων μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ιούδα εἰς τὴν ἔρημον τὴν οὖσαν ἐν τῷ νότῳ ᾿Ιούδα, ἥ ἐστιν ἐπὶ καταβάσεως ᾿Αράδ, καὶ κατῴκησαν μετὰ τοῦ λαοῦ. 17 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ᾿Ιούδας μετὰ Συμεὼν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔκοψε τὸν Χαναναῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα Σεφέκ· καὶ ἐξωλόθρευσεν αὐτούς, καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα τῆς πόλεως ᾿Ανάθεμα. 18 καὶ οὐκ ἐκληρονόμησεν ᾿Ιούδας τὴν Γάζαν οὐδὲ τὰ ὅρια αὐτῆς, οὐδὲ τὴν ᾿Ασκάλωνα ουδὲ τὰ ὅρια αὐτῆς, οὐδὲ τὴν ᾿Ακκαρὼν οὐδὲ τὰ ὅρια αὐτῆς, τὴν ῎Αζωτον οὐδὲ τὰ περισπόρια αὐτῆς. 19 καὶ ἦν Κύριος μετὰ ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐκληρονόμησε τὸ ὄρος, ὅτι οὐκ ἠδυνάσθησαν ἐξολοθρεῦσαι τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὴν κοιλάδα, ὅτι Ρηχὰβ διεστείλατο αὐτοῖς. 20 καὶ ἔδωκαν τῷ Χάλεβ τὴν Χεβρών, καθὼς ἐλάλησε Μωυσῆς, καὶ ἐκληρονόμησεν ἐκεῖθεν τὰς τρεῖς πόλεις τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ενάκ. 21 καὶ τὸν ᾿Ιεβουσαῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ οὐκ ἐκληρονόμησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Βενιαμίν, καὶ κατῴκησεν ὁ ᾿Ιεβουσαῖος μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν Βενιαμὶν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης. 22 καὶ ἀνέβησαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιωσὴφ καί γε αὐτοὶ εἰς Βαιθήλ, καὶ Κύριος ἦν μετ᾿ αὐτῶν. 23 καὶ παρενέβαλον καὶ κατεσκέψαντο Βαιθήλ· τὸ δὲ ὄνομα τῆς πόλεως ἦν ἔμπροσθεν Λουζά. 24 καὶ εἶδον οἱ φυλάσσοντες, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ ἐξεπορεύετο ἐκ τῆς πόλεως· καὶ ἔλαβον αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπον αὐτῷ· δεῖξον ἡμῖν τῆς πόλεως τὴν εἴσοδον, καὶ ποιήσομεν μετὰ σοῦ ἔλεος. 25 καὶ ἔδειξεν αὐτοῖς τὴν εἴσοδον τῆς πόλεως, καὶ ἐπάταξαν τὴν πόλιν ἐν στόματι ρομφαίας, τὸν δὲ ἄνδρα καὶ τὴν συγγένειαν αὐτοῦ ἐξαπέστειλαν. 26 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὁ ἀνὴρ εἰς γῆν Χεττὶν καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ πόλιν καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῆς Λουζά· τοῦτο ὄνομα αὐτῆς ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης. 27 καὶ οὐκ ἐξῇρε Μανασσῆ τὴν Βαιθσάν, ἥ ἐστι Σκυθῶν πόλις, οὐδὲ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῆς οὐδὲ τὰ περίοικα αὐτῆς οὐδὲ τὴν Θανὰκ οὐδὲ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῆς, οὐδὲ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Δὼρ οὐδὲ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῆς, οὐδὲ τὸν κατοικοῦντα Βαλὰκ οὐδὲ τὰ περίοικα αὐτῆς οὐδὲ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῆς, οὐδὲ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Μαγεδὼ οὐδὲ τὰ περίοικα αὐτῆς καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῆς, οὐδὲ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ᾿Ιεβλαὰμ οὐδὲ τὰ περίοικα αὐτῆς οὐδὲ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῆς· καὶ ἤρξατο ὁ Χαναναῖος κατοικεῖν ἐν τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ. 28 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε ἐνίσχυσεν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἐποίησε τὸν Χαναναῖον εἰς φόρον καὶ ἐξαίρων οὐκ ἐξῇρεν αὐτόν. 29 καὶ ᾿Εφραὶμ οὐκ ἐξῇρε τὸν Χαναναῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα ἐν Γαζέρ· καὶ κατῴκησεν ὁ Χαναναῖος ἐν μέσῳ αὐτοῦ ἐν Γαζὲρ καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς φόρον. 30 καὶ Ζαβουλὼν οὐκ ἐξῇρε τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Κέδρων, οὐδὲ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Δωμανά· καὶ κατῴκησεν ὁ Χαναναῖος ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτῷ εἰς φόρον. 31 καὶ ᾿Ασὴρ οὐκ ἐξῇρε τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ᾿Ακχώ, καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτῷ εἰς φόρον, καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Δὼρ καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Σιδῶνα καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ᾿Ααλάφ, τὸν ᾿Ασχαζὶ καὶ τὸν Χελβὰ καὶ τὸν Ναΐ καὶ τὸν ᾿Ερεώ. 32 καὶ κατῴκησεν ὁ ᾿Ασὴρ ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ Χαναναίου τοῦ κατοικοῦντος τὴν γῆν, ὅτι οὐκ ἠδυνήθη ἐξᾶραι αὐτόν. 33 καὶ Νεφθαλὶ οὐκ ἐξῇρε τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Βαιθσαμὺς καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Βαιθανάθ, καὶ κατῴκησε Νεφθαλὶ ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ Χαναναίου τοῦ κατοικοῦντος τὴν γῆν· οἱ δὲ κατοικοῦντες Βαιθσαμὺς καὶ τὴν Βαιθενὲθ ἐγένοντο αὐτοῖς εἰς φόρον. 34 καὶ ἐξέθλιψεν ὁ ᾿Αμορραῖος τοὺς υἱοὺς Δὰν εἰς τὸ ὄρος, ὅτι οὐκ ἀφῆκαν αὐτὸν καταβῆναι εἰς τὴν κοιλάδα. 35 καὶ ἤρξατο ὁ ᾿Αμορραῖος κατοικεῖν ἐν τῷ ὄρει τῷ ὀστρακώδει, ἐν ᾧ αἱ ἄρκοι καὶ ἐν ᾧ αἱ ἀλώπεκες, ἐν τῷ Μυρσινῶνι καὶ ἐν Θαλαβίν· καὶ ἐβαρύνθη ἡ χεὶρ οἴκου ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐπὶ τὸν ᾿Αμορραῖον, καὶ ἐγενήθη αὐτοῖς εἰς φόρον. 36 καὶ τὸ ὅριον τοῦ ᾿Αμορραίου ἀπὸ τῆς ἀναβάσεως ᾿Ακραβὶν ἀπὸ τῆς Πέτρας καὶ ἐπάνω.
