Genesis 50:1-26; Psalm 30:1-12; Matthew 27:27-44

And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one time, because the Lord God of Israel fought for Israel. Joshua 10:42

Joshua made a big mistake in entering into an alliance with the Gibeonites, and suffered for it. When the Gibeonites were then attacked by an alliance of kings, Joshua had to fight for Gibeon. However the end result was that he avoided individual battles with each of the kings, and instead defeated them all at the same time. God is merciful—He can even use our mistakes for eventual blessing (Rom. 8:28). —Brian Russell

The God of Abraham praise,
Who reigns enthroned on high;
Ancient of everlasting days,
And God of love. —Thomas Oliver
