strkjv@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,
strkjv@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,
strkjv@Joshua:11:3 @ And to the Canaanite K@na'aniy# on the east and on the west, and to the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite P@rizziy#, and the Jebusite in the mountains, and to the Hivite under Hermon in the land of Mizpeh.
strkjv@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 m@#od# many.
strkjv@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.
strkjv@Joshua:11:6 @ And the LORD Y@hovah# said unto Joshua Y@howshuwa#, 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.
strkjv@Joshua:11:7 @ So Joshua Y@howshuwa# came, and all the people of war with him, against them by the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them.
strkjv@Joshua:11:8 @ And the LORD Y@hovah# delivered them into the hand of Israel, who smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto Misrephothmaim Misr^phowth, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and they smote them, until they left them none remaining.
strkjv@Joshua:11:9 @ And Joshua Y@howshuwa# did unto them as the LORD Y@hovah# bade him: he houghed their horses, and burnt their chariots with fire.
strkjv@Joshua:11:10 @ And Joshua Y@howshuwa# at that time turned back, and took Hazor, and smote the king thereof with the sword: for Hazor beforetime was the head of all those kingdoms.
strkjv@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.
strkjv@Joshua:11:12 @ And all the cities of those kings, and all the kings of them, did Joshua Y@howshuwa# take, and smote them with the edge of the sword, and he utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD Y@hovah# commanded.
strkjv@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 Y@howshuwa# burn.
strkjv@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.
strkjv@Joshua:11:15 @ As the LORD Y@hovah# commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses command Joshua Y@howshuwa#, and so did Joshua Y@howshuwa#; he left # nothing undone of all that the LORD Y@hovah# commanded Moses.
strkjv@Joshua:11:16 @ So Joshua Y@howshuwa# 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;
strkjv@Joshua:11:17 @ Even from the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir, even unto Baalgad Ba'alin the valley of Lebanon L@banown# under mount Hermon: and all their kings he took, and smote them, and slew them.
strkjv@Joshua:11:18 @ Joshua Y@howshuwa# made war a long time with all those kings.
strkjv@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.
strkjv@Joshua:11:20 @ For it was of the LORD Y@hovah# 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 Y@hovah# commanded Moses.
strkjv@Joshua:11:21 @ And at that time came Joshua Y@howshuwa#, and cut off the Anakims from the mountains, from Hebron, from Debir D@biyr#, from Anab, and from all the mountains of Judah Y@huwdah#, and from all the mountains of Israel: Joshua Y@howshuwa# destroyed them utterly with their cities.
strkjv@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.
strkjv@Joshua:11:23 @ So Joshua Y@howshuwa# took the whole land, according to all that the LORD Y@hovah# said unto Moses; and Joshua Y@howshuwa# gave it for an inheritance unto Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the land rested from war.

kjv@Joshua:11:20 > > RandyP : It is not clear as to what the mechanism God uses to harden hearts is; allowing such or in someway forcing such. It would be easy not knowing why God would want such for us to have difficaulty with this passage. With such passages it is best to give God the bennefit of our doubt and seek through for a more understandable why. kjv@Joshua:11:20 > > RandyP : Why? Hearts tend to harden or soften on their own given situations whether reasonably our unreasonably. These peoples hearts had been hard and continue to be unreasonably hard to this day. Perhaps God knowing that their hearts would not soften (or only temporarily) set in motion the final hardening (atleast for this time). Neither do we know the demonic warfare occurring behind the scenes that God may have been cleansing out of the area. kjv@Joshua:11-12 > > RandyP : Hopefully we can sense what a thurrough route God caused in this land of Canaan given the numbers and armourment and alliances against Israel. One loss only is reported and that caused by a covetous foot soilder in Ai. There should be no doubt at that time nor this that the one real and true living God is in action and wants this to occur.
