Part 1: The people édenistes, Chapter 23: The Conquest of Canaan

The conquest of Canaan

After the destruction of the valley of Siddim, the Hebrews left the Canaanites in peace, for fear of having their retaliation … For Abraham, the conquered territory was enough for him, and he did, from that moment, gently annexed new land … A war with the Canaanites would not be a good thing, as the angels were no longer … Fortunately for the Jews, the Canaanites did not know … After Abraham’s death, taking advantage of what the Hebrews had no strong leader, captured the Egyptians to enslave them and take them to Egypt, to serve as a qualified workforce: 11 And they set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. So he built the cities of Pithom and Rameses, for Pharaoh to serve stores Exodus 1 After the return to Canaan under the leadership of Moses, the Hebrews found themselves at the starting point: it was again conquered Canaan, their Promised Land … Only after the death of Moses that the campaign of conquest began in earnest under the leadership of Joshua: 1 After the death of Moses the servant of the eternal, the eternal said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’: 2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, unto the land which I give the children of Israel. 3 Every place that treads the sole of your foot, I give you, as I promised Moses. 4 for You From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea toward the setting sun. 5 No one shall stand before thee, as thou shalt live. I am with you, as I was with Moses, I forsake you point, I will not leave you. 6 Be strong and courageous, for thou shalt this people to inherit the land I swore to their fathers to give them. Joshua 1

The capture of Jericho

Jericho was closed and barricaded before the children of Israel. None went out, and none came 2 The LORD said to Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho and its king, its valiant soldiers 3 Take a tour of the city, all ye men of war going once around the city. Thus shalt thou do six days 4 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets and the seventh day ye seven times around the city, and the priests blowing the trumpets 5 When they blast with the ram’s horn, when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout aloud. Then the city wall will collapse, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before Joshua 6 12 And Joshua rose early, and the priests took the ark of the eternal 13 The seven priests carrying the seven trumpets before the ark of the LORD passed on, blowing the trumpets. The armed men went before them, and the rear guard followed the ark of the eternal while walking, they sounded the trumpets They made a 14 times around the city, the second day and then returned into the camp. They did the same for six days 15 The seventh day they rose early, at dawn, and they did the same manner seven times around the city that was the only day that they marched seven times around the city 16 The seventh time, when the priests blew the trumpets, Joshua said to the people cry, because the eternal has given you the city! 17 The town will be dedicated to the eternal prohibited by it and everything is there, but we will leave life to Rahab the prostitute and all who are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent Joshua 6

20 The people shouted, and priests blew the trumpets. When the people heard the sound of the trumpet, he cried loudly, and the wall collapsed, the people went up in the city, every man straight before. They took the city 21 and they devoted themselves to destruction, to the sword, all that was in the city, men and women, young and old, oxen, sheep, and donkeys 22 Joshua said to the two men who had spied out the land, Go into the prostitute’s house, and let her out and all those who belong to it, as you have sworn to him 23 The young men, the spies went in and brought out Rahab, her father, mother, brothers, and all who belonged to her and they brought all her kindred, and set them outside the camp of Israel 24 They burned the city and everything that was there, only they put into the treasury of the house of eternal money, gold and all the vessels of bronze and iron 25 Joshua left the lives of Rahab the prostitute, in his father’s house, and all who belonged to her, she lived in Israel until this day, because she hid the messengers whom Joshua sent to spy out Jericho Joshua 6 The shofar ram’s horn is still in the Jewish liturgy the object that represents the trumpets of Jericho There are two valid hypotheses about the fall of the walls of Jericho One may think first of all a weapon using sound wave … Not yet in our boxes … But maybe it is you in the ark? What might be more plausible, is that all these dummies were intended solely to draw attention of people and so they have not seen the mine layers that have peppered the wall of bombs … What explosive did they use? Too bad that nothing remains of the walls, the analysis would have been interesting and eloquent … But they may have been razed to make precisely they do not speak …

The booty

18 Keep only what you will be utterly destroyed, for if you take what you have devoted to destruction, you would put in the camp of Israel banned and you will bring trouble upon 19 All the silver and gold, all the articles of bronze and iron, are consecrated to the eternal, and come into the treasury of eternal Joshua 6 19 Joshua said to Achan, My son, give glory to the eternal God of Israel, and make him tribute. Tell me what you did, do not hide it from me 20 Achan answered Joshua, saying, It is true that I have sinned against the eternal God of Israel, and here’s what I did 21 I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, two hundred shekels of silver and a wedge of gold weighing fifty shekels, I have coveted, and I took them and they are hidden in the earth midst of my tent, and the silver under 22 So Joshua sent messengers, who ran to the tent, and behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it 23 They took them from the tent, brought them to Joshua and all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the eternal 24 Joshua and all Israel with him took Achan son of Zerah, the silver, the mantle, gold bullion, the son and daughters of Achan, his oxen, his donkeys, his sheep, his tent, and all that belonged to him and they brought them up in the valley of Achor 25 Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? The LORD shall trouble you today. And all Israel stoned. They burned them with fire, they were stoned, Joshua 7 The Hebrew shekel is a measure of weight or monetary value In the latter case, he represented the cash value (metal) of the weight of a shekel There were two types of shekels: that money, the shekel of the sanctuary, equivalent to 14.5 g, and the weight of the king, for royalties, about 16, 4 g For the Akan, the booty was to 2.9 kg of silver and a bar of 725 g of gold 30 Have they not found, have they not divided the spoil? A girl, two girls from man’s head; the booty of colored clothing for Sisera, spoil of colored clothes embroidered two color embroidered clothing, neck captives! Judges 5   Do not mess with the booty … It must have been considerable … The entire booty, excluding girls and slaves, were to the everlasting, and this in every city taken … And there were hundreds of looted state cities … All for the eternal … Who was the guardian and who knew where he was hiding … The Bible does not say a word …

The war of Joshua

16 So Joshua took all that land, mountains, all the south, across the country of Goshen, in the valley, the plain, the mountains of Israel and its valleys 17 from Mount Halak, which rises toward Seir, to Baal Gad in the valley of Lebanon at the foot of Mount Hermon. It took all their kings, struck them and put them to death 18 The war against Joshua that supported all those kings long-term 19 There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel, save Gibeon, inhabited by the Hivites, they took all in battle 20 For the eternal allowed obstinassent that these peoples to wage war against Israel, to Israel by the dévouât prohibited, unless there were mercy for them, and he might destroy them, as the eternal had commanded Moses 21 Meanwhile, Joshua marched, to wipe out the Anakim from the mountains of Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, from all the mountains of Judah and all the mountains of Israel, Joshua utterly destroyed prohibited, with their cities 22 There was none of the Anakim in the country children of Israel there remained in Gaza, in Gath and in Ashdod 23 So Joshua took the whole country, according to all that the Eternal spoke to Moses. And Joshua gave an inheritance to Israel, to each his portion, according to their tribes. Then the land had rest from war Joshua 11

The war of Judah

1 After the death of Joshua, the children of Israel asked the eternal, saying, Which of us shall go up first against the Canaanites, to attack them? 2 The LORD said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand 3 And Judah said unto Simeon his brother, Come up with me in the country that has fallen to me by lot, and we will fight the Canaanites, and I likewise will go with you into the one you fell in sharing. So Simeon went with him 4 Judah went up, and the eternal in their hands delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites; they defeated ten thousand men at Bezek 5 They found Adoni Bezek in Bezek; they attacked, and they defeated the Canaanites and Perizzites Judges 1 8 The son of Judah fought against Jerusalem and took it, they struck it with the edge of the sword and set fire to the city 9 The son of Judah went down then to fight the Canaanites who inhabited the mountains, the land of the south and the plain 10 Judah went against the Canaanites living in Hebron, formerly called Kiriath Arba, and smote Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai 11 From there he went against the inhabitants of Debir: Debir was formerly Kiriath Sepher Judges 1 17 And Judah went with Simeon his brother, and they slew the Canaanites that inhabited Tsephath, they devoted themselves banned by the city, and was called Hormah 18 Also Judah took Gaza with its territory, Ashkelon and its territory, and Ekron and its territory 19 The LORD was with Judah, and Judah took possession of the mountain, but he could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron Judges 1 And now our famous iron chariots … A weapon so terrible that the Hebrews, as powerful as they were, were afraid, and especially had nothing to oppose them …

The victory of Barak

And a son of Israel did again what is bad in the eyes of the LORD; gold Ehud was dead 2 And the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor; and the head of his army was Sisera, who lived in one of the nations Harosheth 3 And the son of Israel cried unto the LORD: for he had nine hundred iron chariots, and he strongly oppressed son of Israel for twenty years. Judges 4   6 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali, and said, The LORD, the God of Israel, he did not order? Go and make yourself on Mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of Naphtali and of the son of son of Zebulun; 7 and I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin’s army, and his chariots and his multitude, and I will deliver him into thine hand Judges 4 13 And Sisera gathered together all his chariots, nine hundred iron chariots, and all the people that were with him, since Harosheth nations, to the brook Kishon 14 And Deborah said unto Barak, Arise, for it was here the day the Lord will sell Sisera into thine hand The Eternal is not out there before you? So Barak went down Mount Tabor, and ten thousand men after him 15 And the LORD discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and the whole army, with the edge of the sword before Barak; and Sisera alighted from his chariot and fled on foot 16 And Barak pursued the chariots and the army to Harosheth nations, and all the host of Sisera fell by the edge of the sword: there remained not a single Judges 4   The Bible says that Barack dare fight the tanks, because he knows have the support of the eternal … It also specifies that it is the eternal which put the tanks in disarray … The Hebrew priests had yet sophisticated weaponry in reserve …

The tactics of the Hebrew

22 The house of Joseph also went up against Bethel, and was with them the eternal 23 The house of Joseph sent to explore Bethel, formerly called Luz The 24 spies saw a man coming out of the city, and they said: Show us where we can enter the city, and we will shew thee mercy 25 He showed them where they could enter the city. And they smote the city with the edge of the sword; They had returned the man with all his clan. They let go the man and his family. 26 This man went into the land of the Hittites, and built a city, and gave him the name of Luz, the name she bore so far Judges 1 To the cities, the tactics of the Hebrews was simple: they promised to him who made them enter the city, life saving for them and their families … Examples are numerous in the Bible: there was always someone who was angry with the whole city … 16 And Ehud made to a two-edged sword, a small cubit long, and he buckled from underneath her clothes, on the right hip 17 And he offered to Eglon king of Moab, yet Eglon was a very fat man 18 And it came to pass when he had finished offering this, he sent away the people who brought this 19 But he came back graven images, which were near Gilgal, and said: I have a secret word for you, O king! And he said: Silence! And all who stood by him went out from him 20 And Ehud came to him, yet he sat in an upper house of refreshment, which was for him alone, and Ehud said, I have a message from God for you. And the king rose from his seat; 21 and Ehud stretched out his left hand, and took the sword from her right side, and thrust it into his belly; 22 and even the handle went in after the blade, and the fat closed over the blade, for he did not draw the sword from his belly, and she went between the legs Judges 3 As shown in this example, the assassination of enemy is also part of the panoply of arms of the Hebrew … 17 And Sisera fled on foot to the tent of Jael wife of Heber the Kenite: for there was peace between Jabin king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite 18 And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said to him: Begone, my lord, stand back at home, fear not. And he left her in the tent, she covered him with a blanket 19 And he said, I pray thee, give me some water to drink, for I am thirsty. And she opened a bottle of milk and gave him drink, and covered 20 And he said: Stand at the entrance of the tent, and if it happens that we come and question you and say: Is there anyone here? you say: No 21 And Jael, Heber’s wife took a nail of the tent, and put the hammer in his hand, and she came to him gently, and thrust the stake into the temple, so it entered the earth gold he was fast asleep and was tired and he died 22 And behold Barak, who pursued Sisera, and Jael went out to meet him, and said, Come, and I will show you the man you seek. And it came to her, and, behold, Sisera lay there, dead, and the nail was in his temple Judges 4 Finally in this example is that Jael killing Sisera, exchange alliance to save his people … The Hebrews are known for their ferocity, and as long as Sisera’s chariots were no longer there to protect them … They inspired terror and fear their retaliation was a strong argument for alliances and thus win without firing a shot …

The flight of Canaanite

The Canaanites had the choice between being massacred or to submit, although their Hebrew imposed a heavy price: 27 Manasseh did not drive out the inhabitants of Beth Shean and its towns, of Taanach and her towns, Dor and her towns, of Jibleam and her towns, Megiddo and cities his spring, and the Canaanites would dwell in that country 28 when Israel was strong enough, he subdued the Canaanites to tribute, but he did not drive out 29 Ephraim did not drive out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer, and dwelt among the Canaanites in Gezer Ephraim 30 Neither did Zebulun drive out the inhabitants of Kitron, nor the inhabitants of Nahalol, and the Canaanites dwelt among Zebulun, but they were under tribute 31 Asher did not drive out the inhabitants of Acco, nor the inhabitants of Sidon, nor those of Achlal, of Achzib of Helba of Aphik and Rehob; 32 asérites and dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the country, because they drive them out 33 Naphtali did not drive out the inhabitants of Beth Shemesh, nor the inhabitants of Beth Anath, and dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the country, but the inhabitants of Beth Shemesh and Beth Anath became servants to tribute 34 And the Amorites forced the mountain the son of Dan, and do not let them down in the plain 35 The Amorites would dwell in Har Heres, in Ajalon and Schaalbim but the hand of the house of Joseph was heavy upon them, and they were under tribute Judges 2   Once the tanks were destroyed Sisera, nothing could stop the Hebrew … A heavy price is only a short-term political … This eventually leads to non-payment and rebellion … So rather than be massacred or to pay tribute, many Canaanites fled …
