Divine Enabling - Joshua 11

Joshua 11:1 And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor had  heard those things, that he sent to Jobab king of Madon,  and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph,  

Joshua 11:2 And to the kings that were on the north of the  mountains, and of the plains south of Chinneroth, and in the  valley, and in the borders of Dor on the west, 

Joshua 11:3 And  to the Canaanite on the east and on the west, and to the  Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite  in the mountains, and to the Hivite under Hermon in the  land of Mizpeh. 

Joshua 11:4 And they went out, they and all  their hosts with them, much people, even as the sand that  is upon the sea shore in multitude, with horses and  chariots very many. 

Joshua 11:5 And when all these kings were  met together, they came and pitched together at the waters  of Merom, to fight against Israel.  

Joshua 11:6 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid  because of them: for to morrow about this time will I  deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou shalt hough their  horses, and burn their chariots with fire. 

Joshua 11:7 So Joshua  came, and all the people of war with him, against them by  the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them.  


Joshua 11:8 And the LORD delivered them into the hand of  Israel, who smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon,  and unto Misrephoth-maim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh  eastward; and they smote them, until they left them none  remaining. 

Joshua 11:9 And Joshua did unto them as the LORD  bade him: he houghed their horses, and burnt their chariots  with fire.  

Joshua 11:10 And Joshua at that time turned back, and took  Hazor, and smote the king thereof with the sword: for Hazor  before time was the head of all those kingdoms. 

Joshua 11:11  And they smote all the souls that were therein with the  edge of the sword, utterly destroying them: there was not  any left to breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire. 

Joshua 11:12  And all the cities of those kings, and all the kings of them,  did 
Joshua take, and smote them with the edge of the sword,  and he utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the  LORD commanded. 

Joshua 11:13 But as for the cities that  stood still in their strength, Israel burned none of them, save  Hazor only; that did Joshua burn. 

Joshua 11:14 And all the  spoil of these cities, and the cattle, the children of Israel  took for a prey unto themselves; but every man they smote  with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them,  neither left they any to breathe.   

Joshua 11:15 As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so  did Moses command 
Joshua, and so did Joshua; he left  nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses.  

Joshua 11:16 So Joshua took all that land, the hills, and all the  south country, and all the land of Goshen, and the valley,  and the plain, and the mountain of Israel, and the valley of  the same; 

Joshua 11:17 Even from the mount Halak, that goeth  up to Seir, even unto Baal-gad in the valley of Lebanon  under mount Hermon: and all their kings he took, and smote  them, and slew them. 

Joshua 11:18 Joshua made war a long time  with all those kings. 

Joshua 11:19 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.  

Joshua 11:20 For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that  they should come against Israel in battle, that he might  destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favour,  but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded  Moses.  

Joshua 11:21 And at that time came Joshua, 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. 

Joshua 11:22 There was none of the Anakims  left in the land of the children of Israel: only in Gaza, in  Gath, and in Ashdod, there remained. 

Joshua 11:23 So Joshua  took the whole land, according to all that the LORD said  unto Moses; and Joshua gave it for an inheritance unto  Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the  land rested from war. KJV
