Hai defeats the Israelites Achan confesses Achan is punished
The city of Hai successfully drives off the attacking Israelites.   Details show: 1 -documented evidence of the existence and use of blackened chainmaille (his chainmaille is clearly blackened in comparison to everyone else in the battle scene.): We stress this point as there has been much debate, mostly negative, on discussion forums regarding the period-correctness and authenticity of blackened armour, and of blackened chainmaille in particular.  Since the Maciejowski Bible is considered the definitive reference, this image should now settle that debate!, 2 -a war-club and battle-axe, 3 -a dagger, 4 -a Glaive (a halberd-like weapon), 5 -soldier dressed in a quilted-leather jerkin with a scalloped bottom on top of a quilted-leather coat, also a leather gorget (neck protection).  Also, you can see the padded arming-cap under the helm, 6 -a Cervelliere (steel skull-cap), 7 -a leather strap used for carrying a shield, 8 -another example of a sword-belt, 9 -an Arbalestier (crossbowman) and his Arbalest (crossbow), 10 -helm with an arming-cap showing underneath, 11 -example of a soldier wearing a quilted-leather jerkin with short, scalloped sleeves over his chainmaille, yet under his surcoat, 12 -Good example of the use of Heraldry and heraldic flags as identification during battle, 13 - Chainmaille coif with an attached Camail, 14 -A castle with a Portcullised gate, 15 -Hilt of a cruciform-style battle sword. Achan confesses to stealing from the Israelites. Achan, his household members and his cattle are stoned in retribution for his thievery.
