1 H2985 And it came to pass, when Jabin H4428 king H2674 of Hazor H8085 [H8800] had heard H7971 [H8799] 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 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 H2768 under Hermon H776 in the land H4709 of Mizpeh.
4 H3318 [H8799] And they went out H4264 , they and all their hosts H7227 with them, many H5971 people H2344 , even as the sand H3220 that is upon the sea H8193 shore H7230 in multitude H3966 , with very H7227 many H5483 horses H7393 and chariots.
5 H4428 And when all these kings H3259 [H8735] were met together H935 [H8799] , they came H2583 [H8799] and encamped H3162 together H4325 at the waters H4792 of Merom H3898 [H8736] , to fight H3478 against Israel.
6 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H3091 to Joshua H3372 [H8799] , Be not afraid H6440 because H4279 of them: for to morrow H6256 about this time H5414 [H8802] will I deliver them up H2491 all slain H6440 before H3478 Israel H6131 [H8762] : thou shalt hamstring H5483 their horses H8313 [H8799] , and burn H4818 their chariots H784 with fire.
7 H3091 So Joshua H935 [H8799] came H5971 , and all the people H4421 of war H4325 with him, against them by the waters H4792 of Merom H6597 suddenly H5307 [H8799] ; and they fell upon them.
8 H3068 And the LORD H5414 [H8799] delivered H3027 them into the hand H3478 of Israel H5221 [H8686] , who smote H7291 [H8799] them, and chased H7227 them to great H6721 Zidon H4956 , and to Misrephothmaim H1237 , and to the valley H4708 of Mizpeh H4217 eastward H5221 [H8686] ; and they smote H7604 [H8689] them, until they left H8300 to them none remaining.
9 H3091 And Joshua H6213 [H8799] did H3068 to them as the LORD H559 [H8804] bade H6131 [H8765] him: he hamstrung H5483 their horses H8313 [H8804] , and burnt H4818 their chariots H784 with fire.
10 H3091 And Joshua H6256 at that time H7725 [H8799] turned back H3920 [H8799] , and took H2674 Hazor H5221 [H8689] , and smote H4428 its king H2719 with the sword H2674 : for Hazor H6440 in times past H7218 was the head H4467 of all those kingdoms.
11 H5221 [H8686] And they smote H5315 all the souls H6310 that were in it with the edge H2719 of the sword H2763 [H8687] , utterly destroying H3498 [H8738] them: there was not any left H5397 to breathe H8313 [H8804] : and he burnt H2674 Hazor H784 with fire.
12 H5892 And all the cities H4428 of those kings H4428 , and all the kings H3091 of them, Joshua H3920 [H8804] took H5221 [H8686] , and smote H6310 them with the edge H2719 of the sword H2763 [H8689] , and he utterly destroyed H4872 them, as Moses H5650 the servant H3068 of the LORD H6680 [H8765] commanded.
13 H5892 But as for the cities H5975 [H8802] that stood H8510 still in their strength H3478 , Israel H8313 [H8804] burned H2108 none of them, except H2674 Hazor H3091 only; that did Joshua H8313 [H8804] burn.
14 H7998 And all the spoil H5892 of these cities H929 , and the cattle H1121 , the children H3478 of Israel H962 [H8804] took for a prey H120 to themselves; but every man H5221 [H8689] they smote H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword H8045 [H8687] , until they had destroyed H7604 [H8689] them, neither left H5397 they any to breathe.
15 H3068 As the LORD H6680 [H8765] commanded H4872 Moses H5650 his servant H4872 , so did Moses H6680 [H8765] command H3091 Joshua H6213 [H8804] , and so did H3091 Joshua H5493 0 ; he left H1697 nothing H5493 [H8689] undone H3068 of all that the LORD H6680 [H8765] commanded H4872 Moses.
16 H3091 So Joshua H3947 [H8799] took H776 all that land H2022 , the hills H5045 , and all the south country H776 , and all 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 [H8802] , that goeth up H8165 to Seir H1171 , even to Baalgad H1237 in the valley H3844 of Lebanon H2022 under mount H2768 Hermon H4428 : and all their kings H3920 [H8804] he took H5221 [H8686] , and smote H4191 [H8686] them, and slew them.
19 H5892 There was not a city H7999 [H8689] that made peace H1121 with the children H3478 of Israel H2340 , except the Hivites H3427 [H8802] the inhabitants H1391 of Gibeon H3947 [H8804] : all other they took H4421 in battle.
20 H3068 For it was of the LORD H2388 [H8763] to harden H3820 their hearts H7125 [H8800] , that they should come against H3478 Israel H4421 in battle H2763 [H8687] , that he might destroy them utterly H8467 , and that they might have no favour H8045 [H8687] , but that he might destroy H3068 them, as the LORD H6680 [H8765] commanded H4872 Moses.
21 H6256 And at that time H935 [H8799] came H3091 Joshua H3772 [H8686] , and cut off H6062 the Anakims H2022 from the mountains H2275 , from Hebron H1688 , from Debir H6024 , from Anab H2022 , and from all the mountains H3063 of Judah H2022 , and from all the mountains H3478 of Israel H3091 : Joshua H2763 [H8689] destroyed them utterly H5892 with their cities.
22 H6062 There was none of the Anakims H3498 [H8738] left H776 in the land H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H5804 : only in Gaza H1661 , in Gath H795 , and in Ashdod H7604 [H8738] , there remained.
23 H3091 So Joshua H3947 [H8799] took H776 the whole land H3068 , according to all that the LORD H1696 [H8765] said H4872 to Moses H3091 ; and Joshua H5414 [H8799] gave H5159 it for an inheritance H3478 to Israel H4256 according to their divisions H7626 by their tribes H776 . And the land H8252 [H8804] rested H4421 from war.
