Northern Palestine Taken

1 Then it came about, when Jabin king of Hazor R201 heard of it, that he sent to Jobab king of Madon and to the king of Shimron and to the king of Achshaph, 2 and to the kings who were of the north in the hill country, and in the Arabah--south R202 of Chinneroth F123 and in the lowland and on the heights F124 of Dor on the west-- 3 to the Canaanite on the east and on the west, and the Amorite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Jebusite in the hill country, and the R203 Hivite at F125 the foot of Hermon R204 in the land of Mizpeh. R205 4 They came out, they and all their armies with them, as R206 many people as the sand that is on the seashore, with very many horses and chariots. 5 So all of these kings having agreed to meet, came and encamped together at the waters of Merom, to fight against Israel.

6 Then the LORD said to Joshua, "Do R207 not be afraid because of them, for tomorrow at this time I will deliver all of them slain before Israel; you shall hamstring R208 their horses and burn their chariots with fire." 7 So Joshua and all the people of war with him came upon them suddenly by the waters of Merom, and attacked them. 8 The LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, so that they defeated F126 them, and pursued them as far as Great Sidon and Misrephoth-maim R209 and the valley of Mizpeh R210 to the east; and they struck them until no survivor was left to them. 9 Joshua did to them as the LORD had told him; he hamstrung R211 their horses and burned their chariots with fire.

10 Then Joshua turned back at that time, and captured Hazor R212 and struck its king with the sword; for Hazor formerly was the head of all these kingdoms. 11 They R213 struck every person who was in it with the edge of the sword, utterly F127 destroying them; there was no one left who breathed. And he burned Hazor with fire. 12 Joshua captured all the cities of these kings, and all their kings, and he struck them with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed them; just as R214 Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded. 13 However, Israel did not burn any cities that stood on their mounds, except Hazor alone, which Joshua burned. 14 All R215 the spoil of these cities and the cattle, the sons of Israel took as their plunder; but they struck every man with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them. They left no one who breathed. 15 Just as the LORD had commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua, and so Joshua did; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD had commanded Moses.

16 Thus Joshua took all that land: the R216 hill country and all the Negev, F128 all that land of Goshen, the lowland, the R217 Arabah, the hill country of Israel and its lowland 17 from Mount R218 Halak, that rises toward Seir, even as far as Baal-gad in the valley of Lebanon at F129 the foot of Mount Hermon. And he captured all R219 their kings and struck them down and put them to death. 18 Joshua waged war a long time with all these kings. 19 There was not a city which made peace with the sons of Israel except the R220 Hivites living in Gibeon; they took them all in battle. 20 For R221 it was of the LORD to harden F130 their hearts, to meet Israel in battle in order that he might utterly R222 destroy them, that they might receive F131 no mercy, but that he might destroy them, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

21 Then Joshua came at that time and cut off the R223 Anakim from the hill country, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab and from all the hill country of Judah and from all the hill country of Israel. Joshua utterly destroyed them with their cities. 22 There were no Anakim left in the land of the sons of Israel; only in Gaza, in Gath, R224 and in Ashdod R225 some remained. 23 So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD had spoken to Moses, and Joshua R226 gave it for an inheritance to Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. Thus R227 the land had rest from war.
