New International Version
22 Now the tribes of Joseph(A) attacked Bethel,(B) and the Lord was with them. 23 When they sent men to spy out Bethel (formerly called Luz),(C) 24 the spies saw a man coming out of the city and they said to him, “Show us how to get into the city and we will see that you are treated well.(D)” 25 So he showed them, and they put the city to the sword but spared(E) the man and his whole family. 26 He then went to the land of the Hittites,(F) where he built a city and called it Luz,(G) which is its name to this day.
