Joshua 11:1 And it fortuned, that when Iabin kyng of Hazor had hearde those thinges: he sent to Iobab kynge of Madon, & to the kyng of Simron, and to the kynge of Achsaph, Joshua 11:2 and vnto the kynges that are by northe in þe mountaynes, & playnes toward the southesyde of Ceneroth, and in the lowe countreys, & in þe borders of Dor westward Joshua 11:3 and vnto the Cananytes bothe by Easte & weste, & vnto the Amorites, Hethites, Pheresites, and Iebusites in the mountaynes: & vnto the Heuites that were vnder Hermon in the lande of Mizpa: Joshua 11:4 And they came out and all their hostes with them, a multytude of folke, euen as the sande that is on the see shore in a greate nombre with horsses & charettes exceding manye. Joshua 11:5 And all these kynges mett together, and came, and pytched together at the waters of Merom, for to fight agaynst Israell.
Joshua 11:6 And the Lorde sayde vnto Iosua: be not afrayde at the presence of them: for tomorowe aboute this tyme will I delyuer then all slayne before Israell: thou shalt hough their horsses, & burne their charettes with fire. Joshua 11:7 And so Iosua came and all the men of warre with hym agaynst them by the waters of Merom, & sodenlye fell vpon them. Joshua 11:8 And the Lorde delyuered them into þe hande of Israell: and they smote them, and chased them vnto great Sidon, & vnto the whott waters, and vnto þe valeye of Mizpa which is Eastwarde: and smote them vntyll they had none remaynyng of them.

Joshua 11:10 And Iosua at that tyme turned backe, & toke Hazor, & smote the kyng therof with the swerde. And Hazor before tyme was þe head of all those kingdomes. Joshua 11:11 And they smote all the soules þt were therin with the edge of the swerde, vtterlye destroying all: & nothing that breathed, was let remayne. And he burnt Hazor wt fyer. Joshua 11:12 And all þe cyties of those kynges, and all the kynges of them, dyd Iosua take, and smote them wyth the edge of the swerde, and vtterlye destroyed them as Moses the seruaunt of the Lorde commaunded. Joshua 11:13 But Israell burnt none of þe cyties þt stode styll in their strength, saue Hazor onlye that Iosua burnt, Joshua 11:14 And all the spoyle of the sayde cyties and the catell, the children of Israel caught vnto them selues. But the men onlye they smote with the edge of þe swerde vntill they had destroyed them nether left they ought that had breath.
Joshua 11:15 As the Lorde commaunded Moses hys seruaunt, so dyd Moses commaunde Iosua, and euen so dyd Iosua so that he mynysshed no worde, of all that the Lorde commaunded Moses.
All the country is taken by Joshua.
Joshua 11:16 And so Iosua toke all the lande, the hylles and all the southe contreye, and all the lande of Gosan, and the lowe contrey, and þe playne, and the mountayne of Israell, & the lowe countrey of the same, Joshua 11:17 euen from the mounte of partyng, þt gothe vp to Seir vnto the playne of Gad in the valeye of Libanon, vnder mounte Hermon. And all the kynges of the same he toke, & smote them, and slewe them. Joshua 11:18 Iosua made warre longe tyme wt those kynges: Joshua 11:19 nether was there anye citie þt made peace with þe children of Israell, saue those Hethites that enhabited Gibeon, and therfore all other they toke wyth battell, Joshua 11:20 for it came of the Lorde, wich dyd harden theyr hartes, that they shulde come agaynst Israell in battell: & that they shulde destroye them vtterlye, and shewe them no mercy, but to bryng them to naught, As the Lord commaunded Moses.

And Iosua destroyed them vtterlye with their cities. Joshua 11:22 There was not one Enakite leafte in the lande of the chyldren of Israell, only in Asah Geth, and Asdod, there remayned of them.
