Bible: Judges 1:8-15

1:8 The men of Judah attacked Jerusalem and captured it. They put the sword to it and set the city on fire.

1:9 Later the men of Judah went down to attack the Canaanites living in the hill country, the Negev, and the lowlands. 1  1:10 The men of Judah attacked the Canaanites living in Hebron. (Hebron used to be called Kiriath Arba.) They killed Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai. 1:11 From there they attacked the people of Debir. 2  (Debir used to be called Kiriath Sepher.) 1:12 Caleb said, “To the man who attacks and captures Kiriath Sepher I will give my daughter Acsah as a wife.” 1:13 When Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother, 3  captured it, Caleb 4  gave him his daughter Acsah as a wife.

1:14 One time Acsah 5  came and charmed her father 6  so she could ask him for some land. When she got down from her donkey, Caleb said to her, “What would you like? 1:15 She answered, “Please give me a special present. 7  Since you have given me land in the Negev, now give me springs of water.” So Caleb gave her both the upper and lower springs. 8
