Bible: Judges 9:42-45

9:42 The next day the Shechemites 1  came out to the field. When Abimelech heard about it, 2  9:43 he took his men 3  and divided them into three units and set an ambush in the field. When he saw the people coming out of the city, 4  he attacked and struck them down. 5  9:44 Abimelech and his units 6  attacked and blocked 7  the entrance to the city’s gate. Two units then attacked all the people in the field and struck them down. 9:45 Abimelech fought against the city all that day. He captured the city and killed all the people in it. Then he leveled 8  the city and spread salt over it. 9
