21 But the sons of Benjamin did not destroy the Jebusites that inhabited Jerusalem: and the Jebusite hath dwelt with the sons of Benjamin in Jerusalem until this present day. 22 The house of Joseph also went up against Bethel, and the Lord was with them. 23 For when they were besieging the city, which before was called Luza, 24 They saw a man coming out of the city, and they said to him: shew us the entrance into the city, and we will shew thee mercy. 25 And when he had shewn them, they smote the city with the edge of the sword: but that man and all his kindred they let go:
26 Who being sent away, went into the land of Hethim, and built there a city, and called it Luza: which is so called until this day. 27 Manasses also did not destroy Bethsan, and Thanac with their villages, nor the inhabitants of Dor, and Jeblaam, and Mageddo with their villages. And the Chanaanite began to dwell with them. 28 But after Israel was grown strong he made them tributaries, and would not destroy them. 29 Ephraim also did not slay the Chanaanite that dwelt in Gazer, but dwelt with him. 30 Zabulon destroyed not the inhabitants of Cetron, and Naalol: but the Chanaanite dwelt among them, and became their tributaries.
