11:1 And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor had heard
[those things], that he a sent to Jobab king of Madon,
and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph,
(a) The more God's power appears, the more the wicked rage
11:2 And to the kings that [were] on the north of the mountains,
and of the plains south of b Chinneroth, and in the
valley, and in the borders of Dor on the west,
(b) Which the evangelists call the lake of Gennesaret, or
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
c Hermon in the land of Mizpeh.
11:6 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of
them: for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up
all slain before Israel: thou shalt d hough their horses,
and burn their chariots with fire.
(d) That neither they should serve to the use of war, nor
the Israelites should put their trust in them.
11:8 And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who
smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto e
Misrephothmaim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and
they smote them, until they left them none remaining.
(e) Which signifies hot waters, or according to some, brine
11:11 And they smote all the f 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.
(f) Both men, women and children.
11:13 But [as for] the cities that stood still in their g
strength, Israel burned none of them, save Hazor only;
[that] did Joshua burn.
(g) Which were strong by situation and not hurt by war.
11:14 And all the spoil of these cities, and the cattle, the
children of Israel took for a prey unto themselves; but
every h man they smote with the edge of the sword, until
they had destroyed them, neither left they any to breathe.
(h) All mankind.
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 i mountain of Israel, and the valley
of the same;
(i) That is, Samaria.
11:17 [Even] from the mount k Halak, that goeth up to Seir,
even unto Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon under mount
Hermon: and all their kings he took, and smote them, and
(k) So called, because it was bare and without trees.
11:20 For it was of the LORD to l 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
(l) That is, to give them over to themselves: and
therefore they could not but rebel against God and
seek their own destruction.
11:22 There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the
children of Israel: only in Gaza, m in Gath, and in
Ashdod, there remained.
