Commentary on
The Book of Jasher
Chapter 91:1-10.

Text
XCI:1  At that time, after the death of Joshua, the children of the Canaanites were still in the
          land, and the Israelites resolved to drive them out.
XC1:2  And the children of Israel asked of
Yehuveh, saying, Who shall first go up for us to the
          Canaanites to fight against them? And Yehuveh said, Judah shall go up.
XC1:3  And the children of Judah said to Simeon, Go up with us into our lot, and we will fight
          against the Canaanites and we likewise will go up with you, in your lot, so the children of
          Simeon went with the children of Judah.
XC1:4  And the children of Judah went up and fought against the Canaanites, so Yehuveh
          delivered the Canaanites into the hands of the children of Judah, and they smote them
          in Bezek, ten thousand men.
XC1:5  And they fought with Adoni-bezek in Bezek, and he fled from before them, and they
          pursued him and caught him, and they took hold of him and cut off his thumbs and great
          toes.
XC1:6  And Adoni-bekez said, Three score and ten kings having their thumbs and great toes cut
          off, gathered their meat under my table, as I have done, so
Elohim has requited me, and
          they brought him to Jerusalem and he died there.
XC1:7  And the children of Simeon went with the children of Judah, and they smote the
          Canaanites with the edge of the sword.
XC1:8  And Yehuveh was with the children of Judah, and they possessed the mountain, and
          the children of Joseph went up to Bethel, the same is Luz, and Yehuveh was with them.
XC1:9  And the children of Joseph spied out Bethel, and the watchmen saw a man going forth
          from the city, and they caught him and said unto him, Show us now the entrance of the
          city and we will show kindness to thee.
XC1:10  And that man showed them the entrance of the city, and the children of Joseph came
          and smote the city with the edge of the sword.
