Canaanite King Defeated

1 When the Canaanite king of Arad,a who lived in the Negev, heard that Israel was coming on the Atharim road, he fought against Israel and captured some prisoners.
2 Then Israel made a vow to the Lord, "If You will deliver this people into our hands, we will completely destroy their cities."b
3 The Lord listened to Israel's request, the Canaanites were defeated, and Israel completely destroyed them and their cities. So they named the place Hormah.c d
