Ai's Defeat

Joshua 9:1 - Joshua 9:27

When the kings on this side Jordan heard of Israel's might,
they gathered all together, in hopes that they could fight.

There were seven nations, six aligned, but one of them would not.
The Gibeonites said we will not win. They'd kill us if we fought.

So they took torn sacks and bottles and shoes all worn and old.
Their clothes had holes. Their bread was dry. Their food was full of mold.

They said we've come a long way, even though they lived real close.
We've heard how your God fights for you. We fear your Lord of hosts.

Make a treaty to protect us, and we will serve you well.
Israel did not ask God what to do. The truth they could not tell.

So Joshua made a league with them, and Israel's princes swore,
they would not fight against these men. They would not go to war.

But three days later Israel came to the land of Gibeon.
They realized they had been deceived, and what they did was sin.

God said don't make a league, with the people of this land.
This is your country. I'll drive them out, by my almighty hand.

They had given them their word, and they could not break their vow.
You tricked us and you lied to us but we can't kill you now.

So Israel made the Gibeonites their slaves 'cause of their lie.
You'll draw our water, cut our wood. We promise you won't die.


David Is King Again

2 Samuel 21:1 - 2 Samuel 21:22

As David reigned a famine came. Three years with little to eat.
Lord, have we done wrong? Are you punishing us, to take away our meat?

The Lord said, Saul and his bloody house, they killed those called Gibeonite.
Well what should we do, inquired David. To make this wrong thing right?

The Gibeonites said, we want no gold, no revenge of Israel's land.
Just give us of those, who committed this crime. They will pay for it by our hand.

So the famine ceased in Israel, but the troubles did not end.
The Philistines came back to fight, with giants once again.

One they called Ishbibenob, with spear that'd make normal men burst.
He tried to kill king David, but Abishai brought him down first.

And another one came. His name was Saph. He didn't last too long.
Sibbechai met him in battle, and Saph found he wasn't so strong.

Then the brother of Goliath, with a staff like a weaver's beam,
came to fight Israel, but Elhanan again made Philistia scream.

And finally another battle, with a giant who'd fall like before.
He had twenty-four digits, twelve fingers and toes, and what good did it do to have more?

He defied Israel like Goliath, and Jonathan, nephew of the king,
did to him what his uncle David did, to Goliath with only a sling.

So four more Philistine giants, fell in battle. Their warring was done.
And now you know why David, brought five stones instead of just one!
