22 The house of Joseph also attacked Bethel, and the Lord was withab them. 23 They sent spies to Bethel (the town was formerly named Luzac). 24 The spies saw a man coming out of the town and said to him, “Please show us how to get into town, and we will show you kindness.”ad 25 When he showed them the way into the town, they put the town to the sword but released the man and his entire family. 26 Then the man went to the land of the Hittites, built a town, and named it Luz. That is its name still today.
