18Joshuamadewar a longtime with all those kings.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.20
For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come againstIsrael in battle, that he might destroy them utterly , and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORDcommandedMoses.21
And at that timecameJoshua, 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:Joshua destroyed them utterly with their cities.22
There was none of the Anakimsleft in the land of the children of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, there remained .
So Joshuatook the whole land, according to all that the LORDsaid unto Moses; and Joshuagave it for an inheritance unto Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the landrested from war.
