89 YAHSHUA's SONGS OF PRAISE
Yahshua's Song of Praise. The Wars of Yisrael.
1 Then spoke Yahshua this song, on the day that YAHWEH had given the Amorites into the hand of Yahshua and the children of Yisrael, and he said in the sight of all Yisrael,
2 You have done mighty things, O YAHWEH, you have performed great deeds; who is like unto you? my lips shall sing to your name.
3 My goodness and my fortress, my high tower, I will sing a new song unto you, with thanksgiving will I sing to you, you are the strength of my yeshua.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, the princes of the world shall sing to you, the children of Yisrael shall rejoice in your yeshua, they shall sing and praise your power.
5 To you, O YAHWEH, did we confide; we said you are our Elohim, for you are our shelter and strong tower against our enemies.
6 To you we cry and are not ashamed, in you we trust and we are delivered; when we cry unto you, you hear our voice, you deliver our souls from the sword, you show unto us your free unmerited love, you give unto us your yeshua, you rejoice our hearts with you strength.
7 You go forth for our yeshua, with thine arm do you redeem your people; you answer us from the heavens of your holiness, you save us from ten thousands of people.
8 The sun and moon stood still in heaven, and you stand in your wrath against our oppressors and command your judgments over them.
9 All the princes of the earth stood up, the kings of the nations had gathered themselves together, they were not moved at your presence, they desired your battles.
10 You did rise against them in thine anger, and bring down you wrath upon them; you destroy them in thine anger, and cut them off in thine heart.
11 Nations have been consumed with your fury, kingdoms have declined because of your wrath, you did wound kings in the day of thine anger.
12 You pour out your fury upon them, your wrathful anger took hold of them; you turn their iniquity upon them, and cut them off in their wickedness.
13 They spread a trap, they fall therein, in the net they hide, their foot is caught.
14 Your hand is ready for all thine enemies who say, Through their sword they possessed the land, through their arm they dwell in the city; you fill their faces with shame, you bring their horns down to the ground, you did terrify them in your wrath, and you destroy them in thine anger.
15 The earth tremble and shakes at the sound of your storm over them, you do not withhold their souls from death, and you bring down their lives to the grave.
16 You did pursue them in your storm, you did consume them in your whirlwind, you did turn their rain into hail, they fell in deep pits so that they could not rise.
17 Their carcasses are like rubbish cast out in the middle of the streets.
18 They are consumed and destroyed in thine anger, you did save your people with your might.
19 Therefore our hearts rejoice in you, our souls exalt in your yeshua.
20 Our tongues shall relate your might, we will sing and praise your wondrous works.
21 For you did save us from our enemies, you did deliver us from those who rose up against us, you did destroy them from before us and depress them beneath our feet.
22 Thus shall all thine enemies perish O YAHWEH, and the wicked shall be like chaff driven by the wind, and your beloved shall be like trees planted by the waters.
23 So Yahshua and all Yisrael with him returned to the camp in Gilgal, after having smitten all the kings, so that not a remnant was left of them.
24 And the five kings fled alone on foot from battle, and hid themselves in a cave, and Yahshua sought for them in the field of battle, and did not find them.
25 And it was afterward told to Yahshua, saying, The kings are found and behold they are hidden in a cave.
26 And Yahshua said, Appoint men to be at the mouth of the cave, to guard them, lest they take themselves away; and the children of Yisrael did so.
27 And Yahshua called to all Yisrael and said to the officers of battle, Place your feet upon the necks of these kings, and Yahshua said, So shall YAHWEH do to all your enemies.
28 And Yahshua commanded afterward that they should slay the kings and cast them into the cave, and to put great stones at the mouth of the cave.
29 And Yahshua went afterward with all the people that were with him on that day to Makkedah, and he smote it with the edge of the sword.
30 And he utterly destroyed the souls and all belonging to the city, and he did to the king and people thereof as he had done to Jericho.
31 And he passed from there to Libnah and he fought against it, and YAHWEH delivered it into his hand, and Yahshua smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls thereof, and he did to it and to the king thereof as he had done to Jericho.
32 And from there he passed on to Lachish to fight against it, and Horam king of Gaza went up to assist the men of Lachish, and Yahshua smote him and his people until there was none left to him.
33 And Yahshua took Lachish and all the people thereof, and he did to it as he had done to Libnah.
34 And Yahshua passed from there to Eglon, and he took that also, and he smote it and all the people thereof with the edge of the sword.
35 And from there he passed to Hebron and fought against it and took it and utterly destroyed it, and he returned from there with all Yisrael to Debir and fought against it and smote it with the edge of the sword.
36 And he destroyed every soul in it, he left none remaining, and he did to it and the king thereof as he had done to Jericho.
37 And Yahshua smote all the kings of the Amorites from Kadesh-barnea to Azah, and he took their country at once, for YAHWEH had fought for Yisrael.
38 And Yahshua with all Yisrael came to the camp to Gilgal.
39 When at that time Jabin king of Chazor heard all that Yahshua had done to the kings of the Amorites, Jabin sent to Jobat king of Midian, and to Laban king of Shimron, to Jephal king of Achshaph, and to all the kings of the Amorites, saying,
40 Come quickly to us and help us, that we may smite the children of Yisrael, before they come upon us and do unto us as they have done to the other kings of the Amorites.
41 And all these kings hearkened to the words of Jabin, king of Chazor, and they went forth with all their camps, seventeen kings, and their people were as numerous as the sand on the sea shore, together with horses and chariots innumerable, and they came and pitched together at the waters of Merom, and they were met together to fight against Yisrael.
42 And YAHWEH said to Yahshua, Fear them not, for tomorrow about this time I will deliver them up all slain before you, you shalt hough their horses and burn their chariots with fire.
43 And Yahshua with all the men of war came suddenly upon them and smote them, and they fell into their hands, for YAHWEH had delivered them into the hands of the children of Yisrael.
44 So the children of Yisrael pursued all these kings with their camps, and smote them until there was none left of them, and Yahshua did to them as YAHWEH had spoken to him.
45 And Yahshua returned at that time to Chazor and smote it with the sword and destroyed every soul in it and burned it with fire, and from Chazor, Yahshua passed to Shimron and smote it and utterly destroyed it.
46 From there he passed to Achshaph and he did to it as he had done to Shimron.
47 From there he passed to Adulam and he smote all the people in it, and he did to Adulam as he had done to Achshaph and to Shimron.
48 And he passed from them to all the cities of the kings which he had smitten, and he smote all the people that were left of them and he utterly destroyed them.
49 Only their booty and cattle the Yisraelites took to themselves as a prey, but every human being they smote, they suffered not a soul to live.
50 As YAHWEH had commanded Mosheh so did Yahshua and all Yisrael, they failed not in anything.
51 So Yahshua and all the children of Yisrael smote the whole land of Canaan as YAHWEH had commanded them, and smote all their kings, being thirty and one kings, and the children of Yisrael took their whole country.
52 Besides the kingdoms of Sihon and Og which are on the other side Jordan, of which Mosheh had smitten many cities, and Mosheh gave them to the Reubenites and the Gadites and to half the tribe of Manasseh.
53 And Yahshua smote all the kings that were on this side Jordan to the west, and gave them for an inheritance to the nine tribes and to the half tribe of Yisrael.
54 For five years did Yahshua carry on the war with these kings, and he gave their cities to the Yisraelites, and the land became tranquil from battle throughout the cities of the Amorites and the Canaanites.
