So I’m reading through the Bible right now, and currently, I find myself in the Book of Joshua. In it, I came across a familiar story: the story of the Gibeonites. As promised the terror of the Children of Israel was upon all the Amorites (inhabitants of Canaan), and the Gibeonites were no different in that regard. However, they were smarter than the Amorites. Instead of waiting and peeing their pants, they devised a cunning plan, and went to treat with Israel.
