Chapter 11

Yeshua conquers many kings

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
of Achshaph,
11:2 And to the kings that [were] on the north of the mountains, and of the plains south of Chinneroth, 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, much people, even as the sand that [is] upon the sea shore in multitude, with horses and chariots very many.
11:5 And when all these kings were met together, they came and pitched together at the waters of Merom, to fight against Israel.
11:6 And the LORD said to Yeshua, Be not afraid because of them for tomorrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel you will hough their horses, and burn their chariots with fire.
11:7 So Yeshua 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 struck them, and chased them to great Zidon, and to Misrephothmaim, and to the valley of Mizpeh eastward ; and they struck them, until they left them none remaining.
11:9 And Yeshua did to them as the LORD bade him he houghed their horses, and burnt their chariots with fire.
11:10 And Yeshua at that time turned back, and took Hazor, and struck the king thereof with the sword for Hazor beforetime was the head of all those kingdoms.
11:11 And they struck all the souls that [were] therein 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, did Yeshua take, and struck 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 Yeshua 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 struck 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 Yeshua, and so did Yeshua ; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses.
11:16 So Yeshua 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 goes up to Seir, even to Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon under mount Hermon and all their kings he took, and struck them, and slew them.
11:18 Yeshua 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 favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.

The Anakims cut off

11:21 And at that time came Yeshua, 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 Yeshua 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 remained.
11:23 So Yeshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD said to Moses ; and Yeshua gave it for an inheritance to Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the land rested from war.
