1 H2985 It happened, when Jabin H4428 king H2674 of Hazor H8085 heard H7971 of it, that he sent H3103 to Jobab H4428 king H4068 of Madon, H4428 to the king H8110 of Shimron, H4428 to the king H407 of Achshaph,
2 H4428 and to the kings H6828 who were on the north, H2022 in the hill country, H6160 in the Arabah H5045 south H3672 of Chinneroth, H8219 in the lowland, H5299 and in the heights H1756 of Dor H3220 on the west,
3 H3669 to the Canaanite H4217 on the east H3220 and on the west, H567 and the Amorite, H2850 and the Hittite, H6522 and the Perizzite, H2983 and the Jebusite H2022 in the hill country, H2340 and the Hivite H2768 under Hermon H776 in the land H4709 of Mizpah.
4 H3318 They went out, H4264 they and all their armies H7227 with them, many H5971 people, H2344 even as the sand H3220 that is on the H8193 seashore H7230 in multitude, H3966 with very H7227 many H5483 horses H7393 and chariots.
5 H4428 All these kings H3259 met together; H935 and they came H2583 and encamped H3259 together H4325 at the waters H4792 of Merom, H3898 to fight H3478 with Israel.
6 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H3091 to Joshua, H3372 "Don't be afraid H6440 because H4279 of them; for tomorrow H6256 at this time, H5414 I will deliver them up H2491 all 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, H5971 and all the people H4421 of war H4325 with him, against them by the waters H4792 of Merom H6597 suddenly, H5307 and fell on them.
8 H3068 Yahweh H5414 delivered H3027 them into the hand H3478 of Israel, H5221 and they struck H7291 them, and chased H7227 them to great H6721 Sidon, H4956 and to Misrephoth Maim, H1237 and to the valley H4708 of Mizpeh H4217 eastward. H5221 They struck H7604 them until they left H8300 them none remaining.
9 H3091 Joshua H6213 did H3068 to them as Yahweh H559 told H6131 him. He hamstrung H5483 their horses H8313 and burnt H4818 their chariots H784 with fire.
10 H3091 Joshua H7725 turned back H6256 at that time, H3920 and took H2674 Hazor, H5221 and struck H4428 its king H2719 with the sword: H2674 for Hazor H6440 used H7218 to be the head H4467 of all those kingdoms.
11 H5221 They struck H5315 all the souls H6310 who were in it with the edge H2719 of the sword, H2763 utterly destroying H3498 them. There was no one left H5397 who breathed. H8313 He burnt H2674 Hazor H784 with fire.
12 H3091 Joshua H3920 captured H5892 all the cities H4428 of those kings, H4428 with their kings, H5221 and he struck H6310 them with the edge H2719 of the sword, H2763 and utterly destroyed H4872 them; as Moses H5650 the servant H3068 of Yahweh H6680 commanded.
13 H5892 But as for the cities H5975 that stood H8510 on their mounds, H3478 Israel H8313 burned H2108 none of them, except H2674 Hazor H3091 only. Joshua H8313 burned that.
14 H1121 The children H3478 of Israel H7998 took all the spoil H5892 of these cities, H929 with the livestock, H962 as spoils H120 for themselves; but every man H5221 they struck H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword, H8045 until they had destroyed H7604 them. They didn't leave H5397 any who breathed.
15 H3068 As Yahweh H6680 commanded H4872 Moses H5650 his servant, H4872 so Moses H6680 commanded H3091 Joshua. H3091 Joshua H6213 did H5493 so. He left H1697 nothing H5493 undone H3068 of all that Yahweh H6680 commanded H4872 Moses.
16 H3091 So Joshua H3947 captured H776 all that land, H5045 the hill country, H5045 all the South, H5045 all the land H1657 of Goshen, H8219 the lowland, H6160 the Arabah, H2022 the hill H3478 country of Israel, H8219 and the lowland of the same;
17 H2022 from Mount H2510 Halak, H5927 that goes up H8165 to Seir, H1171 even to Baal Gad H1237 in the valley H3844 of Lebanon H2022 under Mount H2768 Hermon. H3920 He took H4428 all their kings, H5221 struck H4191 them, and put them to death.
19 H5892 There was not a city H7999 that made peace H1121 with the children H3478 of Israel, H2340 except the Hivites, H3427 the inhabitants H1391 of Gibeon. H3947 They took H4421 all in battle.
20 H3068 For it was of Yahweh H2388 to harden H3820 their hearts, H7125 to come against H3478 Israel H4421 in battle, H2763 that he might utterly H8467 destroy them, that they might have no favor, H8045 but that he might destroy H3068 them, as Yahweh H6680 commanded H4872 Moses.
21 H3091 Joshua H935 came H6256 at that time, H3772 and cut off H6062 the Anakim H2022 from the hill country, H2275 from Hebron, H1688 from Debir, H6024 from Anab, H2022 and from all the hill country H3063 of Judah, H2022 and from all the hill country H3478 of Israel: H3091 Joshua H2763 utterly H5892 destroyed them with their cities.
22 H6062 There were none of the Anakim H3498 left H776 in the land H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel. H5804 Only in Gaza, H1661 in Gath, H795 and in Ashdod, H7604 did some remain.
