Joshua 11:17 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 11:17

[Even] from the mount Halak, that goeth up unto Seir
Or the "smooth" and "bald" mountain, which had no trees on it, as some interpret it, observed by Kimchi; it was a mount on the borders of Edom, to which the land of Canaan reached on that side:

even unto Baalgad, in the valley of Lebanon, under Mount Hermon;
and so describes the northern part of the land conquered by Joshua:

and all their kings he took, and smote them, and slew them;
both in the southern and northern parts of the land.

Joshua 11:17 In-Context

15 What the LORD had commanded Moses his servant, Moses had commanded Joshua, and Joshua did exactly that. He didn't deviate a bit from any command that the LORD had given Moses.
16 So Joshua took this whole land: the highlands, the whole arid southern plain, the whole land of Goshen, the lowlands, the desert plain, and both the highlands and the lowlands of Israel.
17 He took land stretching from Mount Halak, which goes up toward Seir, as far as Baal-gad at the foot of Mount Hermon in the Lebanon Valley. He captured all their kings. He struck them down and killed them.
18 Joshua waged war against all these kings for a long time.
19 There wasn't one city that made peace with the Israelites, except the Hivites who lived in Gibeon. They captured every single one in battle.
