- 15 Then Joshua and all Israel with him returned to the camp to Gilgal. 16 Now these five R183 kings had fled and hidden themselves in the cave at Makkedah. 17 It was told Joshua, saying, "The five kings have been found hidden in the cave at Makkedah." 18 Joshua said, "Roll large stones against the mouth of the cave, and assign men by it to guard them, 19 but do not stay there yourselves; pursue your enemies and attack F109 them in the rear. Do not allow them to enter their cities, for the LORD your God has delivered them into your hand." 20 It came about when Joshua and the sons of Israel had finished slaying F110 them with a very great slaughter, until R184 they were destroyed, and the survivors who remained of them had F111 entered the fortified cities, 21 that all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace. No one uttered F112 a word against any of the sons of Israel. 22 Then Joshua said, "Open the mouth of the cave and bring these five kings out to me from the cave." 23 They did so, and brought R185 these five kings out to him from the cave: the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon. 24 When they brought these kings out to Joshua, Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said to the chiefs of the men of war who had gone with him, "Come near, put R186 your feet on the necks of these kings." So they came near and put their feet on their necks. 25 Joshua then said to them, "Do R187 not fear or be dismayed! Be strong and courageous, for thus the LORD will do to all your enemies with whom you fight." 26 So afterward Joshua struck them and put them to death, and he hanged R188 them on five trees; and they hung on the trees until evening. 27 It came about at sunset F113 that Joshua gave a command, and they R189 took them down from the trees and threw them into the cave where they had hidden themselves, and put large stones over the mouth of the cave, to this very day.
