Joshua 11

11:1 And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor had heard
 [those things], that he sent to Jobab king of Madon, and to the
 king of Shimron, and to the king Achshaph,
11:2 And to the kings that [were] on the north of the mountains,
 and of the plains south of Cinneroth, and in the valley, and in
 the borders of Dor on the west,
11:3 [And to] the Canaanite on the east and on the west, and
 [to] the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the
 Jebusite in the mountains, and [to] the Hivite under Hermon in
 the land of Mizpeh.
11:4 And they went out, they and all their hosts with them, many
 people, even as the sand that [is] upon the sea-shore in
 multitude, with horses and chariots very numerous.
11:5 And when all these kings were met together, they came and
 encamped together at the waters of Merom, to fight against
11:6 And the LORD said to Joshua, Be not afraid because of them:
 for to-morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain
 before Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their
 chariots with fire.
11:7 So Joshua came, and all the people of war with him, against
 them by the waters of Merom suddenly, and they fell upon them.
11:8 And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who
 smote them, and chased them to great Zidon, and to
 Misrephoth-maim, and to the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and they
 smote them, until they left to them none remaining.
11:9 And Joshua did to them as the LORD bade him: he houghed
 their horses, and burnt their chariots with fire.
11:10 And Joshua at that time turned back, and took Hazor, and
 smote its king with the sword: for Hazor before-time was the
 head of all those kingdoms.
11:11 And they smote all the souls that [were] in it with the
 edge of the sword, utterly destroying [them]: there was not any
 left to breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire.
11:12 And all the cities of those kings, and all the kings of
 them, Joshua took, and smote them with the edge of the sword,
 [and] he utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the
 LORD commanded.
11:13 But [as for] the cities that stood still in their
 strength, Israel burned none of them, save Hazor only; [that]
 did Joshua burn.
11:14 And all the spoil of these cities, and the cattle, the
 children of Israel took for a prey to themselves: but every man
 they smote with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed
 them, neither left they any to breathe.
11:15 As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses
 command Joshua, and so did Joshua: he left nothing undone of
 all that the LORD commanded Moses.
11:16 So Joshua took all that land, the hills, and all the south
 country, and all the land of Goshen, and the valley, and the
 plain, and the mountain of Israel, and the valley of the same;
11:17 [Even] from the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir, even
 to Baal-gad, in the valley of Lebanon under mount Hermon: and
 all their kings he took, and smote them, and slew them.
11:18 Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.
11:19 There was not a city that made peace with the children of
 Israel, save the Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon: all [other]
 they took in battle.
11:20 For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they
 should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy
 them utterly, [and] that they might have no favor, but that he
 might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.
11:21 And at that time came Joshua and cut off the Anakims from
 the mountains, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all
 the mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel:
 Joshua destroyed them utterly with their cities.
11:22 There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the
 children of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, there
11:23 So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the
 LORD said to Moses, and Joshua gave it for an inheritance to
 Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the
 land rested from war.
