12-13The day God gave the Amorites up to Israel, Joshua spoke to God, with all Israel listening:“Stop, Sun, over Gibeon;Halt, Moon, over Aijalon Valley.”And Sun stopped,Moon stood stock stillUntil he defeated his enemies.13-14(You can find this written in the Book of Jashar.) The sun stopped in its tracks in mid sky; just sat there all day. There’s never been a day like that before or since—God took orders from a human voice! Truly, God fought for Israel.

Read Joshua 10
