Joshua Chapter 10 Summary

Chapter 10 begins with a king named Adonizedek becoming upset that the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel.

Gibeon was a great city, one of the royal cities, even more greater than Ai.

Adonizedek gathered other kings to get in league and go crush Gibeon for their rebellion against the rest of the Amorite and Canaanite nations.

They came to make war with Gibeon, but Gibeon urged Joshua to protect his name and his covenant he made with them.

Joshua had to fight for the nation he made a league with. God was with him and told him He’d deliver them into his hand.

God greatly aided Israel as He discomfited their enemies with hailstones. This was a great day in the history of mankind; in this day, Joshua spoke to God in the sight of all the people and commanded the sun to stand still and the moon until he was able to avenge himself of their enemies.

This was important because the Lord listened to the voice of a man and fought for Israel. They slaughtered everyone the Lord didn’t and captured the five kings who came against Gibeon.

They killed and hung the five kings after putting their feet to their neck, symbolizing what God will do to all of Israel’s enemies.

Joshua took the king of Makkedah, then moved to Libnah, then to Lachish, then to Gezer, Eglon, then to Debir, and he did to all these cities the same he did to Jericho. He destroyed all as God commanded.

We pray the Father to add blessings to the reading and doing of His Holy Word through His Son Jesus the Messiah. Amen!
