A Review Of Joshua's Conquests

19 There was not a city that made peace to the sons of Israel, only the Hivites dwelling in Gibeon; they took all in war. 20 For from Jehovah it was to strengthen their heart to meet Israel in war in order to destroy them; no favor to be to them, but to destroy them as Jehovah commanded Moses. 21 And Joshua will go in that time and will cut off the Anakims from the mountain, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from every mountain of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel, with their cities Joshua exterminated them.
