Bible: Josh 10:10-14

10:10 The Lord routed 1  them before Israel. Israel 2  thoroughly defeated them 3  at Gibeon. They chased them up the road to the pass 4  of Beth Horon and struck them down all the way to Azekah and Makkedah. 10:11 As they fled from Israel on the slope leading down from 5  Beth Horon, the Lord threw down on them large hailstones from the sky, 6  all the way to Azekah. They died – in fact, more died from the hailstones than the Israelites killed with the sword.

10:12 The day the Lord delivered the Amorites over to the Israelites, Joshua prayed to the Lord before Israel: 7 

“O sun, stand still over Gibeon!

O moon, over the Valley of Aijalon!

10:13 The sun stood still and the moon stood motionless while the nation took vengeance on its enemies. The event is recorded in the Scroll of the Upright One. 8  The sun stood motionless in the middle of the sky and did not set for about a full day. 9  10:14 There has not been a day like it before or since. The Lord obeyed 10  a man, for the Lord fought for Israel!
