Five kings of the Amorites, gathered themselves together and encamped against Gibeon, and made war against it. The men of Gibeon sent to Joshua saying, “Don’t abandon your servants! Come up to us quickly, and save us, and help us; for all the kings of the Amorites have gathered together against us.”
So Joshua went up from Gilgal, to help the Gibeonites. God said to Joshua, “Don’t fear them, for I have delivered them into your hands. Not a man of them will stand before you.”
Joshua came on them suddenly. God confused them before Israel, and he killed them with a great slaughter at Gibeon. As they fled from before Israel, God threw down great stones from the sky on them and many died. Then Joshua spoke to God in the day when God delivered the Amorites into the hand of Israel; “Sun, stand still on Gibeon! Moon, stop in the valley of Aijalon!”
The sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. The sun stayed in the midst of the sky, and didn’t go down about a whole day. There has been no day like that before it or after it that God listened to the voice of a man and stopped the sun and moon; for God fought for Israel.
NOTES: What a wonderful miracle. God performed an unusual thing for Joshua. The sun stayed in the midst of the sky, and didn’t go down about a whole day. God can do great things for you too. The God of Joshua still lives and does great miracles for those who believe in Him.
