1 H1961 And it came H2985 to pass, when Jabin H4428 king H2674 of Hazor H8085 had heard H7971 those things, that he sent H3103 to Jobab H4428 king H4068 of Madon, H4428 and to the king H8110 of Shimron, H4428 and to the king H407 of Achshaph,
2 H4428 And to the kings H6828 that were on the north H2022 of the mountains, H6160 and of the plains H5045 south H3672 of Chinneroth, H8219 and in the valley, H5299 and in the borders H1756 of Dor H3220 on the west,
3 H3669 And to the Canaanite H4217 on the east H3220 and on the west, H567 and to the Amorite, H2850 and the Hittite, H6522 and the Perizzite, H2983 and the Jebusite H2022 in the mountains, H2340 and to the Hivite H8478 under H2768 Hermon H776 in the land H4709 of Mizpeh.
4 H3318 And they went H3605 out, they and all H4264 their hosts H7227 with them, much H5971 people, H2344 even as the sand H3220 that is on the sea H8193 shore H7230 in multitude, H5483 with horses H7393 and chariots H3966 very H7227 many.
5 H3605 And when all H428 these H4428 kings H3259 were met H3162 together, H935 they came H2583 and pitched H3162 together H413 at H4325 the waters H4792 of Merom, H3898 to fight H5973 against H3478 Israel.
6 H3068 And the LORD H559 said H3091 to Joshua, H3372 Be not afraid H6440 because H4279 of them: for to morrow H2063 about this H6256 time H5414 will I deliver H3605 them up all H2491 slain H6440 before H3478 Israel: H6131 you shall hamstring H5483 their horses, H8313 and burn H4818 their chariots H784 with fire.
7 H3091 So Joshua H935 came, H3605 and all H5971 the people H4421 of war H5921 with him, against H4325 them by the waters H4792 of Merom H6597 suddenly; H5307 and they fell on them.
8 H3068 And the LORD H5414 delivered H3027 them into the hand H3478 of Israel, H5221 who smote H7291 them, and chased H7227 them to great H6721 Zidon, H4956 and to Misrephothmaim, H1237 and to the valley H4708 of Mizpeh H4217 eastward; H5221 and they smote H5704 them, until H7604 they left H1115 them none H8300 remaining.
9 H3091 And Joshua H6213 did H3068 to them as the LORD H559 bade H6131 him: he hamstrung H5483 their horses, H8313 and burnt H4818 their chariots H784 with fire.
10 H3091 And Joshua H6256 at that time H7725 turned H7725 back, H3920 and took H2674 Hazor, H5221 and smote H4428 the king H2719 thereof with the sword: H2674 for Hazor H6440 beforetime H7218 was the head H3605 of all H428 those H4467 kingdoms.
11 H5221 And they smote H3605 all H5315 the souls H6310 that were therein with the edge H2719 of the sword, H2763 utterly destroying H3605 them: there was not any H3498 left H5397 to breathe: H8313 and he burnt H2674 Hazor H784 with fire.
12 H3605 And all H5892 the cities H428 of those H4428 kings, H3605 and all H4428 the kings H3091 of them, did Joshua H3920 take, H5221 and smote H6310 them with the edge H2719 of the sword, H2763 and he utterly destroyed H4872 them, as Moses H5650 the servant H3068 of the LORD H6680 commanded.
13 H5892 But as for the cities H5975 that stood H8510 still in their strength, H3478 Israel H8313 burned H3808 none H2108 of them, save H2674 Hazor H905 only; H3091 that did Joshua H8313 burn.
14 H3605 And all H7998 the spoil H428 of these H5892 cities, H929 and the cattle, H1121 the children H3478 of Israel H962 took for a prey H1992 to themselves; H3605 but every H120 man H5221 they smote H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword, H5704 until H8045 they had destroyed H3808 them, neither H7604 left H3605 they any H5397 to breathe.
15 H3068 As the LORD H6680 commanded H4872 Moses H5650 his servant, H3651 so H4872 did Moses H6680 command H3091 Joshua, H3651 and so H6213 did H3091 Joshua; H5493 he left H3808 nothing H1697 H5493 undone H3605 of all H3068 that the LORD H6680 commanded H4872 Moses.
16 H3091 So Joshua H3947 took H3605 all H776 that land, H2022 the hills, H3605 and all H5045 the south H3605 country, and all H776 the land H1657 of Goshen, H8219 and the valley, H6160 and the plain, H2022 and the mountain H3478 of Israel, H8219 and the valley of the same;
17 H2022 Even from the mount H2510 Halak, H5927 that goes H8165 up to Seir, H1171 even to Baalgad H1237 in the valley H3844 of Lebanon H8478 under H2022 mount H2768 Hermon: H3605 and all H4428 their kings H3920 he took, H5221 and smote H4191 them, and slew them.
19 H5892 There was not a city H7999 that made peace H1121 with the children H3478 of Israel, H1115 save H2340 the Hivites H3427 the inhabitants H1391 of Gibeon: H3605 all H3947 other they took H4421 in battle.
20 H3068 For it was of the LORD H2388 to harden H3820 their hearts, H7122 that they should come H7125 against H3478 Israel H4421 in battle, H2763 that he might destroy H1961 them utterly, and that they might have H1115 no H8467 favor, H8045 but that he might destroy H3068 them, as the LORD H6680 commanded H4872 Moses.
21 H6256 And at that time H935 came H3091 Joshua, H3772 and cut H6062 off the Anakims H2022 from the mountains, H2275 from Hebron, H1688 from Debir, H6024 from Anab, H3605 and from all H2022 the mountains H3063 of Judah, H3605 and from all H2022 the mountains H3478 of Israel: H3091 Joshua H2763 destroyed H5892 them utterly with their cities.
22 H3808 There was none H6062 of the Anakims H3498 left H776 in the land H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel: H7535 only H5804 in Gaza, H1661 in Gath, H795 and in Ashdod, H7604 there remained.
23 H3091 So Joshua H3947 took H854 the whole H3605 H776 land, H3605 according to all H3068 that the LORD H1696 said H4872 to Moses; H3091 and Joshua H5414 gave H5159 it for an inheritance H3478 to Israel H4256 according to their divisions H7626 by their tribes. H776 And the land H8252 rested H4421 from war.
