And it came to pass, when Joshua and the children of Israel,
&c.] Joshua seems to have pitched his camp at Makkedah, while the rest of his army pursued the fleeing Canaanites, and when he and they were at different places:
had made an end of slaying them with a very great slaughter, till they
and not to be seen in any large bodies, but scattered here and there:
that the rest [which] remained of them entered into fenced cities;
to which they belonged, and which were afterwards taken, as related in the latter part of this chapter, ( Joshua 10:28-42 ) .
