12 Then Joshua spoke to Yahweh, on the day Yahweh gave the Amorites[a] over to the Israelites,[b] and he said in the sight of Israel,

“Sun in Gibeon, stand still,
    and moon, in the valley of Aijalon.”
13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stopped,
    until the nation took vengeance on its enemies.
