np. Genesis 1, 1 - 5 „The Story of Creation. 1In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth 2and the earth was without form or shape, with darkness over the abyss and a mighty wind sweeping over the waters. 3Then God said: Let there be light, and there was light. 4God saw that the light was good. God then separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” Evening came, and morning followed—the first day”.

„Joshua summoned the Gibeonites and said to them, Why did you deceive us and say, We live far off from you?—You live among us! 23Now are you accursed: every one of you shall always be a slave, hewers of wood and drawers of water, for the house of my God. 24They answered Joshua, Your servants were fully informed of how the LORD, your God, commanded Moses his servant that you be given the entire land and that all its inhabitants be destroyed before you. Since, therefore, at your advance, we were in great fear for our lives, we acted as we did. 25And now that we are in your power, do with us what is good and right in your eyes. 26Joshua did what he had decided: while he saved them from being killed by the Israelites, 27on that day he made them, as they still are, hewers of wood and drawers of water for the community and for the altar of the LORD, in the place the LORD would choose”.
„Three days after the covenant was made, the Israelites heard that these people were from nearby, and would be living in Israel. 17The third day on the road, the Israelites came to their cities of Gibeon, Chephirah, Beeroth, and Kiriath-jearim, 18but did not attack them, because the leaders of the community had sworn to them by the LORD, the God of Israel. When the entire community grumbled against the leaders,19these all remonstrated with the community, We have sworn to them by the LORD, the God of Israel, and so we cannot harm them. 20Let us therefore let them live, and so deal with them that no wrath fall upon us because of the oath we have sworn to them. 21Thus the leaders said to them, Let them live, and become hewers of wood and drawers of water for the entire community. So the community did as the leaders advised them”.
„This bread of ours was still warm when we brought it from home as provisions the day we left to come to you, but now it is dry and crumbly. 13Here are our wineskins, which were new when we filled them, but now they are torn. Look at our garments and sandals; they are worn out from the very long journey. 14Then the Israelite leaders partook of their provisions, without inquiring of the LORD. 15So Joshua made peace with them and made a covenant to let them live, which the leaders of the community sealed with an oath”.

Joshua 9, 6 – 11

„Thus they journeyed to Joshua in the camp at Gilgal, where they said to him and to the Israelites, We have come from a far-off land; now, make a covenant with us. 7But the Israelites replied to the Hivites, You may be living in land that is ours. How, then, can we make a covenant with you? 8But they answered Joshua, We are your servants. Then Joshua asked them, Who are you? Where do you come from? 9They answered him, Your servants have come from a far-off land, because of the fame of the LORD, your God. For we have heard reports of all that he did in Egipt 10and all that he did to the two kings of the Amorites beyond the Jordan, Sihon, king of Heshbon, and Og, king of Bashan, who lived in Ashtaroth. 11So our elders and all the inhabitants of our land said to us, Take along provisions for the journey and go to meet them. Say to them: We are your servants; now make a covenant with us”.

Joshua 9, 1 – 5

„When the news reached all the kings west of the Jordan, in the mountain regions and in the Shephelah, and all along the coast of the Great Sea as far as the Lebanon: Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, 2they gathered together to launch a common attack against Joshua and Israel. 3On hearing what Joshua had done to Jericho and Ai, the inhabitants of Gibeon 4formed their own scheme. They chose provisions for a journey, making use of old sacks for their donkeys, and old wineskins, torn and mended. 5They wore old, patched sandals and shabby garments; and all the bread they took was dry and crumbly”.
„Later, on Mount Ebal, Joshua built to the LORD, the God of Israel, an altar 31of unhewn stones on which no iron tool had been used, just as Moses, the servant of the LORD, had commanded the Israelites, as recorded in the book of the law. On this altar they sacrificed burnt offerings to the LORD and made communion sacrifices. 32There, in the presence of the Israelites, Joshua inscribed upon the stones a copy of the law written by Moses. 33And all Israel, resident alien and native alike, with their elders, officers, and judges, stood on either side of the ark facing the levitical priests who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the LORD. Half of them were facing Mount Gerizim and half Mount Ebal, just as Moses, the servant of the LORD, had first commanded for the blessing of the people of Israel. 34Then were read aloud all the words of the law, the blessings and the curses, exactly as written in the book of the law. 35Every single word that Moses had commanded, Joshua read aloud to the entire assembly, including the women and children, and the resident aliens among them”.
„When Israel finished killing all the inhabitants of Ai in the open, who had pursued them into the wilderness, and all of them to the last man fell by the sword, then all Israel returned and put to the sword those inside the city. 25There fell that day a total of twelve thousand men and women, the entire population of Ai. 26Joshua kept the javelin in his hand stretched out until he had carried out the ban on all the inhabitants of Ai. 27However, the Israelites took for themselves as plunder the livestock and the spoil of that city, according to the command of the LORD issued to Joshua. 28Then Joshua destroyed Ai by fire, reducing it to an everlasting mound of ruins, as it remains today. 29He had the king of Ai hanged on a tree until evening; then at sunset Joshua ordered the body removed from the tree and cast at the entrance of the city gate, where a great heap of stones was piled up over it, which remains to the present day”.
„Then the LORD directed Joshua: Stretch out the javelin in your hand toward Ai, for I will deliver it into your power. Joshua stretched out the javelin in his hand toward the city, 19and as soon as he did so, the men in ambush rose from their post, rushed in, captured the city, and immediately set it on fire. 20By the time the army of Ai looked back, the smoke from the city was going up to the heavens. Escape in any direction was impossible, because the Israelites retreating toward the wilderness now turned on their pursuers; 21for when Joshua and the main body of Israelites saw that the city had been taken by ambush and was going up in smoke, they struck back at the forces of Ai. 22Since those in the city came out to intercept them, Ai’s army was hemmed in by Israelites on both sides, who cut them down without any fugitives or survivors 23except the king, whom they took alive and brought to Joshua”.
„When all the troops he led were drawn up in position before the city, they pitched camp north of Ai, on the other side of the ravine. 12He took about five thousand warriors and set them in ambush between Bethel and Ai, west of the city. 13Thus the people took up their stations, with the main body north of the city and the ambush west of it, and Joshua waited overnight in the valley. 14The king of Ai saw this, and he and all his army came out very early in the morning to engage Israel in battle at the place in front of the Arabah, not knowing that there was an ambush behind the city. 15Joshua and the main body of the Israelites fled toward the wilderness, pretending defeat,16until the last of the soldiers in the city had been called out to pursue them. Since they were drawn away from the city, with everyone pursuing Joshua, 17not a soldier remained in Ai or Bethel. They abandoned the city, leaving it open, as they pursued Israel”.

Joshua 8, 6 – 10

„They will keep coming out after us until we have drawn them away from the city, for they will think, ‘They are fleeing from us as they did the last time.’ When we flee, 7then you rise from ambush and take possession of the city, which the LORD, your God, will deliver into your power. 8When you have taken the city, set it on fire in obedience to the LORD’s command. These are my orders to you. 9Then Joshua sent them away. They went to the place of ambush, taking up their position to the west of Ai, toward Bethel. Joshua, however, spent that night with the army. 10Early the next morning Joshua mustered the army and went up to Ai at its head, with the elders of Izrael”.
