CLV(i) 1 And it comes to pass when Jabin king of Hazor hears, that he sends unto Jobab king of Madon, and unto the king of Shimron, and unto the king of Achshaph, 2 and unto the kings who [are] on the north in the hill-country, and in the plain south of Chinneroth, and in the low country, and in the elevations 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 Hivite under Hermon, in the land of Mizpeh-. 4 and they go out, they and all their camps with them, a people numerous, as the sand which [is] on the sea-shore for multitude, and horse and charioteer very many;" 5 and all these kings are met together, and they come and encamp together at the waters of Merom, to fight with Israel. 6 And Yahweh said unto Joshua, `Be not afraid of their presence, for to-morrow about this time I am giving all of them wounded before Israel; their horses you do hough, and their chariots burn with fire.. 7 And Joshua comes, and all the people of war with him, against them by the waters of Merom suddenly, and they fall on them;" 8 and Yahweh gives them into the hand of Israel, and they smite them and pursue them unto the great Zidon, and unto Misrephoth-Maim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward, and they smite them, till he has not left to them a remnant;" 9 and Joshua does to them as Yahweh said to him; their horses he has houghed, and their chariots burnt with fire. 10 And Joshua turns back at that time, and captures Hazor, and its king he has smitten by the sword; for Hazor formerly [is] head of all these kingdoms;" 11 and they smite every person who [is] in it by the mouth of the sword; he has devoted--he has not left any one breathing, and Hazor he has burnt with fire;" 12 and all the cities of these kings, and all their kings, has Joshua captured, and he smites them by the mouth of the sword; he devoted them, as Moses, servant of Yahweh, commanded. 13 Only, all the cities which are standing by their hill, Israel has not burned them, save Hazor only, [it] has Joshua burnt;" 14 and all the spoil of these cities, and the cattle, have the sons of Israel spoiled for themselves; only, every human being they have smitten by the mouth of the sword, till their destroying them; they have not left any one breathing. 15 As Yahweh commanded Moses His servant, so did Moses command Joshua, and so has Joshua done; he has not turned aside a thing of all that Yahweh commanded Moses. 16 And Joshua takes all this land:the hill-country, and all the south, and all the land of Goshen, and the low country, and the plain, even the hill-country of Israel and its low lands, 17 from the mount of Halak, which is going up [to] Seir, and unto Baal-Gad, in the valley of Lebanon, under mount Hermon; and all their kings he has captured, and he smites them, and puts them to death. 18 Many days has Joshua made with all these kings war; 19 there has not been a city which made peace with the sons of Israel save the Hivite, inhabitants of Gibeon; the whole they have taken in battle;" 20 for from Yahweh it has been to strengthen their heart, to meet in battle with Israel, in order to devote them, so that they have no grace, but in order to destroy them, as Yahweh commanded Moses. 21 And Joshua comes at that time, and cuts off the Anakim from the hill-country, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, even from all the hill-country of Judah, and from all the hill-country of Israel; with their cities has Joshua devoted them. 22 There has not been left Anakim in the land of the sons of Israel; only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, were they left. 23 And Joshua takes the whole of the land, according to all that Yahweh has spoken unto Moses, and Joshua gives it for an inheritance to Israel according to their divisions, by their tribes; and the land has rest from war.
