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.
