Behold, I have delivered the land into his hands” 3And Yehuda said to Shemuun, his brother: “Go up with me into my portion and we will fight with the Canaanites, and I will go also with you into your portion.” And Shemuun went with him 4And Yehuda went and LORD JEHOVAH delivered the Canaanites and the Perezites into their hands, and they killed ten thousand men of them in Bezeq with the sword 5And they found the Master of Bezeq in Bezeq, and they fought with him and they killed with the sword the Canaanites and the Perezites 6And the Master of Bezeq fled and they chased after him, and they caught him and they cut off the thumbs and big toes of his hands and of his feet 7And the Master of Bezeq said: “Seventy Kings whose thumbs and big toes of their hands and of their feet were cut off were collecting bread from under my table according to what I have done, so God has rewarded me.” And they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died there
