And he took it and its king and all its cities; they struck them with the edge of the sword and utterly destroyed all the people who were in it. He left none remaining; as he had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir and its king, as he had done also to Libnah and its king.

അവൻ അതിനെയും അതിലെ രാജാവിനെയും അതിന്റെ എല്ലാ പട്ടണങ്ങളെയും പിടിച്ചു വാളിന്റെ വായ്ത്തലയാൽ സംഹരിച്ചു; അതിലുള്ള എല്ലാവരെയും ആരും ശേഷിക്കാതവണ്ണം നിർമ്മൂലമാക്കി; അവൻ ഹെബ്രോനോടു ചെയ്തതുപോലെയും ലിബ്നയോടും അതിലെ രാജാവിനോടും ചെയ്തതുപോലെയും ദെബീരിനോടും അതിലെ രാജാവിനോടും ചെയ്തു.
