A. M. 2951. B.C. 1053. Mahanaim
Since the LORD had decreed that Ahithophel's good advice be undermined in order to bring about Absalom's ruin, Absalom and all the men of Israel said, "The advice of Hushai the Archite is better than Ahithophel's advice."
When he saw them, Jacob said, "This is God's camp." So he called that place Mahanaim.
When the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done to Jericho and Ai,
So Adoni-zedek and his people were greatly alarmed because Gibeon was a large city like one of the royal cities; it was larger than Ai, and all its men were warriors.
"Come up and help me. We will attack Gibeon, because they have made peace with Joshua and the Israelites."
On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to the Israelites, Joshua spoke to the LORD in the presence of Israel: "Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and moon, over the valley of Aijalon."
