On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to Israel

Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel:

“Sun, stand still over Gibeon

And you, moon, over the valley of Aijalon.”

So the sun stood still

And the moon stopped

Till the nation avenged itself on its enemies

As it is written in the Book of Jashar.

The sun stopped in the middle of the sky

And delayed going down about a full day.

There has never been a day like it before or since

A day when the LORD listened to a human being.

Surely the LORD was fighting for Israel!

Day of wonder!
