4 They came out, with all their troops, a great army, in number like the sand on the seashore, with very many horses and chariots. 4 They came out with all their troops and a large number of horses and chariots--a huge army, as numerous as the sand on the seashore.
5 All these kings joined their forces, and came and camped together at the waters of Merom, to fight with Israel. 5 All these kings joined forces and made camp together at the Waters of Merom, to fight against Israel.
6 And the Lord said to Joshua, "Do not be afraid of them, for tomorrow at this time I will hand over all of them, slain, to Israel; you shall hamstring their horses, and burn their chariots with fire." 6 The LORD said to Joshua, "Do not be afraid of them, because by this time tomorrow I will hand all of them over to Israel, slain. You are to hamstring their horses and burn their chariots."

8 And the Lord handed them over to Israel, who attacked them and chased them as far as Great Sidon and Misrephoth-maim, and eastward as far as the valley of Mizpeh. They struck them down, until they had left no one remaining. 8 and the LORD gave them into the hand of Israel. They defeated them and pursued them all the way to Greater Sidon, to Misrephoth Maim, and to the Valley of Mizpah on the east, until no survivors were left.
9 And Joshua did to them as the Lord commanded him; he hamstrung their horses, and burned their chariots with fire. 9 Joshua did to them as the LORD had directed: He hamstrung their horses and burned their chariots.
10 Joshua turned back at that time, and took Hazor, and struck its king down with the sword. Before that time Hazor was the head of all those kingdoms. 10 At that time Joshua turned back and captured Hazor and put its king to the sword. (Hazor had been the head of all these kingdoms.)
11 And they put to the sword all who were in it, utterly destroying them; there was no one left who breathed, and he burned Hazor with fire. 11 Everyone in it they put to the sword. They totally destroyed them, not sparing anything that breathed, and he burned up Hazor itself.
12 And all the towns of those kings, and all their kings, Joshua took, and struck them with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them, as Moses the servant of the Lord had commanded. 12 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.
13 But Israel burned none of the towns that stood on mounds except Hazor, which Joshua did burn. 13 Yet Israel did not burn any of the cities built on their mounds--except Hazor, which Joshua burned.
