Joshua 10:13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

2 Samuel 1:18 (Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.)

Both these passages refer to the book of Jasher. What book is that? Is it found in the bible?


I think its the book of Hosea. Hosea was the original name of Joshua




  • Where do you see either of those topics mentioned in the book of Hosea? – curiousdannii May 22 '20 at 7:18
  • Jasher and Hosea are quite different names with quite different meanings. Not related! – Dottard May 22 '20 at 8:38
