“And Ioshua made peace with them, and made a league with them, to let them liue: and the princes of the Congregation sware vnto them.”
King James Version (KJV)
12. This our bread, wee tooke hote for our prouision out of our houses, on the day we came forth to goe vnto you: but now behold, it is dry, & it is mouldy. 13. And these bottels of wine which we filled, were new, and behold, they be rent: and these our garments, and our shooes are become old, by reason of the very long iourney. 14. And the men tooke of their victuals, and asked not counsell at the mouth of the Lord. 15. And Ioshua made peace with them, and made a league with them, to let them liue: and the princes of the Congregation sware vnto them. 16. ¶ And it came to passe at the end of three dayes, after they had made a league with them, that they heard that they were their neighbours, and that they dwelt among them. 17. And the children of Israel iourneyed, and came vnto their cities on the third day: now their cities were Gibeon, and Chephirah, and Beeroth, and Kiriath iearim. 18. And the children of Israel smote them not, because the Princes of the Congregation had sworne vnto them by the Lord God of Israel: And all the Congregation murmured against the Princes.
