Five Kings Attack Gibeon Now it came about when Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem heard that Joshua had captured Ai, and had utterly destroyed it (just as he had done to Jericho and its king, so he had done to Ai and its king), and that the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were within their land, 2 that he feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city, like one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai, and all its men were mighty. 3 Therefore Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem sent word to Hoham king of Hebron and to Piram king of Jarmuth and to Japhia king of Lachish and to Debir king of Eglon, saying, 4 “Come up to me and help me, and let us attack Gibeon, for it has made peace with Joshua and with the sons of Israel.” 5 So the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon, gathered together and went up, they with all their armies, and camped by Gibeon and fought against it.


 The engravings are by or after Luycken (Luyken), Elgier, Picart, Goeree, and others.  Not a full Bible in the usual sense, Mortier presents the books of the Bible through his illustrations, each accompanied by a short telling of the story in standard prose. The fine, large engravings were produced by or from the works of several masters. Many were later reproduced and used again in later and lesser bibles, in most case significantly reduced.
