The Lord handed them over to Israel, and they struck them down, pursuing them as far as Great Sidon and Misrephoth-maim, and to the east as far as the valley of Mizpeh.a They struck them down, leaving no survivors.
Joshua treated them as the Lord had told him; he hamstrung their horses and burned up their chariots.
At that time Joshua turned back, captured Hazor, and struck down its king with the sword, because Hazor had formerly been the leader of all these kingdoms.
They struck down everyone in it with the sword, completely destroying them; he left no one alive. Then he burned down Hazor.
Joshua captured all these kings and their cities and struck them down with the sword. He completely destroyed them, as Moses the Lord's servant had commanded.
However, Israel did not burn any of the cities that stood on their mounds except Hazor, which Joshua burned.
The Israelites plundered all the spoils and cattle of these cities for themselves. But they struck down every person with the sword until they had annihilated them, leaving no one alive.
Just as the Lord had commanded His servant Moses, Moses commanded Joshua. That is what Joshua did, leaving nothing undone of all that the Lord had commanded Moses.
So Joshua took all this land-the hill country, all the Negev, all the land of Goshen,b the Judean foothills,c the plain,d and the hill country of Israel with its Judean foothillse-
from Mount Halak, which ascends to Seir, as far as Baal-gad in the Valley of Lebanon at the foot of Mount Hermon. He captured all their kings and struck them down, putting them to death.
Joshua waged war with all these kings for a long time.
