BOOK OF JOSHUA CHAPTER 9 SUMMARY Why Fight When You Can Eat Moldy Bread? The kings of the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizites, Hivities and the Jebusites hear about the Israelites, and gather together to form a super cool kings club to fight Joshua. When the citizens of Gibeon aren't invited to join the super cool kings club, they decide to trick the Israelites instead of fight them. They do this through the clever use of disguises and tomfoolery. The Gibeonites, in 21st century fashion style, give all their clothing a "worn" look to fool the Israelites into thinking they are travelers from a far away land. Maybe they hope the Israelites will go "Wow! Us too! This is so random!" The Gibeonites are apparently Hivites according to 9:7. We know, this confuses us too. Don't feel bad, it also confuses scholars. Let this be a lesson on the importance of proofreading. The Hivite/Gibeonite hybrid group explains to Joshua that they have heard of the God of Israel and wish to make treaty with the Israelites.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
