Joshua 11 ©
Various other kings assemble against Israel by the waters of Merom. God encourageth Joshua, who smiteth them. Hazor is taken and burned; and the cities of the other kings are taken and spoiled. All the country taken by Joshua. The Anakims are cut off. The land being subdued resteth from war.
And to hthe Canaanite on the east and on the west, and to the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and ithe Jebusite in the mountains, and to jthe Hivite under kHermon in the land of lMizpeh.
¶And the LORD said unto Joshua, oBe not afraid because of them: for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou pshalt *hough their horses, and burn qtheir chariots with fire.
And they smote all the souls that were therein with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them: there was not 4any left to breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire.
But as for the cities that stood still 5in their strength, Israel burned none of them, *save xHazor only; that did Joshua burn.
Joshua made war ha long time with all those kings.
There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel, *save ithe Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon: all other they took in battle.
For it was of the LORD jto harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, kas the LORD commanded Moses.
¶And at that time came Joshua, and cut loff the Anakims from the mountains, from mHebron, from nDebir, from Anab, and from all the mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel: oJoshua destroyed them utterly with their cities.
So Joshua took the whole land, raccording to all that the LORD said unto Moses; and sJoshua gave it for an inheritance unto Israel taccording to their divisions by their tribes. And the land urested from war.
