Joshua 10:1 New International Version

The Defeat of the Amorites

10 1  Now Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem heard that Joshua had taken Ai and totally destroyed[1] it, doing to Ai and its king as he had done to Jericho and its king, and that the people of Gibeon had made a treaty of peace with Israel and had become their allies.


[1] 10:1 The Hebrew term refers to the irrevocable giving over of things or persons to the Lord, often by totally destroying them; also in verses 28, 35, 37, 39 and 40.
