Joshua 7, 1 – 5

01 czerwiec 2020
„But the Israelites acted treacherously with regard to the ban; Achan, son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah of the tribe of Judah, took goods that were under the ban, and the anger of the LORD flared up against the Israelites. 2Joshua next sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is near Beth-aven and east of Bethel, with the order, Go up and reconnoiter the land. When they had explored Ai, 3they returned to Joshua and advised, Do not send all the people up; if only about two or three thousand go up, they can attack and overcome Ai. You need not tire all the people: the enemy there are few. 4About three thousand of the people made the attack, but they fled before the army at Ai, 5who killed some thirty-six of them. They pursued them from the city gate to the Shebarim, and defeated them on the descent, so that the confidence of the people melted away like water”.
