and the LORD gave them into the hand of Israel. They defeated them and pursued them all the way to Greater Sidon,1 to Misrephoth Maim,2 and to the Valley of Mizpah on the east, until no survivors were left.
Joshua did to them as the LORD had directed: He hamstrung their horses and burned their chariots.
At that time Joshua turned back and captured Hazor and put its king to the sword.3 (Hazor had been the head of all these kingdoms.)
Everyone in it they put to the sword. They totally destroyeda them,4 not sparing anything that breathed,5 and he burned up6 Hazor itself.
Joshua took all these royal cities and their kings and put them to the sword. He totally destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded.713
Yet Israel did not burn any of the cities built on their mounds--except Hazor, which Joshua burned.
The Israelites carried off for themselves all the plunder and livestock of these cities, but all the people they put to the sword until they completely destroyed them, not sparing anyone that breathed.815
As the LORD commanded his servant Moses, so Moses commanded Joshua, and Joshua did it; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses.916
So Joshua took this entire land: the hill country,10 all the Negev,11 the whole region of Goshen, the western foothills,12 the Arabah and the mountains of Israel with their foothills,
from Mount Halak, which rises toward Seir,13 to Baal Gad14 in the Valley of Lebanon15 below Mount Hermon.16 He captured all their kings and struck them down, putting them to death.1718
Joshua waged war against all these kings for a long time.
