63. Toen zij doende waren met hen te slaan,
neigde de dag naar de avond, en Jozua zei voor
de ogen van het volk: Zon staat u stil te Gibeon,
en u maan in het dal van Ajalon, totdat het volk
zich heeft gewroken aan zijn vijanden.
64. De Heer luisterde naar de stem van Jozua,
en de zon stond stil in het midden des hemels,
en zij stond 36 ogenblikken (?) stil, en ook de
maan stond stil en haastte zich een gehele dag
niet om onder te gaan.

na deze dag, dat de Heer de stem van een man
verhoorde, want de Heer streed voor Israël.
