Bible: Joshua 11:16-20

A Summary of Israel’s Victories

11:16 Joshua conquered the whole land, 1  including the hill country, all the Negev, all the land of Goshen, the lowlands, 2  the Arabah, the hill country of Israel and its lowlands, 11:17 from Mount Halak on up to Seir, as far as Baal Gad in the Lebanon Valley below Mount Hermon. He captured all their kings and executed them. 3  11:18 Joshua campaigned against 4  these kings for quite some time. 5  11:19 No city made peace with the Israelites (except the Hivites living in Gibeon); 6  they had to conquer all of them, 7  11:20 for the Lord determined to make them obstinate so they would attack Israel. He wanted Israel to annihilate them without mercy, as he had instructed Moses. 8
