The Continuing Conquest of Canaan

1Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying, Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them?H310H4194H3091H1121H3478H7592H3068H559H5927H3669H8462H3898 2And the LORD said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand.H3068H559H3063H5927H5414H776H3027 3And Judah said unto Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my lot, that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I likewise will go with thee into thy lot. So Simeon went with him.H3063H559H8095H251H5927H1486H3898H3669H1980H1486H8095H3212 4And Judah went up; and the LORD delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand: and they slew of them in Bezek ten thousand men.H3063H5927H3068H5414H3669H6522H3027H5221H966H6235H505H376 5And they found Adonibezek in Bezek: and they fought against him, and they slew the Canaanites and the Perizzites.H4672H137H966H3898H5221H3669H6522 6But Adonibezek fled; and they pursued after him, and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes.H137H5127H7291H310H270H7112H931H3027H7272 7And Adonibezek said, Threescore and ten kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered their meat under my table: as I have done, so God hath requited me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died.H137H559H7657H4428H931H3027H7272H7112H3950H7979H6213H430H7999H935H3389H4191 8Now the children of Judah had fought against Jerusalem, and had taken it, and smitten it with the edge of the sword, and set the city on fire.H1121H3063H3898H3389H3920H5221H6310H2719H7971H5892H784 9And afterward the children of Judah went down to fight against the Canaanites, that dwelt in the mountain, and in the south, and in the valley.H310H1121H3063H3381H3898H3669H3427H2022H5045H8219 10And Judah went against the Canaanites that dwelt in Hebron: (now the name of Hebron before was Kirjatharba:) and they slew Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai.H3063H3212H3669H3427H2275H8034H2275H6440H7153H5221H8344H289H8526 11And from thence he went against the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher:H3212H3427H1688H8034H1688H6440H7158 12And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife.H3612H559H5221H7158H3920H5414H5915H1323H802 13And Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.H6274H1121H7073H3612H6996H251H3920H5414H5915H1323H802 14And it came to pass, when she came to him, that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and she lighted from off her ass; and Caleb said unto her, What wilt thou?H935H5496H7592H1H7704H6795H2543H3612H559 15And she said unto him, Give me a blessing: for thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And Caleb gave her the upper springs and the nether springs.H559H3051H1293H5414H5045H776H5414H1543H4325H3612H5414H5942H1543H8482H1543 16And the children of the Kenite, Moses' father in law, went up out of the city of palm trees with the children of Judah into the wilderness of Judah, which lieth in the south of Arad; and they went and dwelt among the people.H1121H7017H4872H2859H5927H5892H8558H5899H1121H3063H4057H3063H5045H6166H3212H3427H854H5971 17And Judah went with Simeon his brother, and they slew the Canaanites that inhabited Zephath, and utterly destroyed it. And the name of the city was called Hormah.H3063H3212H8095H251H5221H3669H3427H6857H2763H8034H5892H7121H2767 18Also Judah took Gaza with the coast thereof, and Askelon with the coast thereof, and Ekron with the coast thereof.H3063H3920H5804H1366H831H1366H6138H1366 19And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.H3068H3063H3423H2022H3808H3423H3427H6010H7393H1270 20And they gave Hebron unto Caleb, as Moses said: and he expelled thence the three sons of Anak.H5414H2275H3612H4872H1696H3423H7969H1121H6061 21And the children of Benjamin did not drive out the Jebusites that inhabited Jerusalem; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem unto this day.H1121H1144H3423H2983H3427H3389H2983H3427H1121H1144H3389H3117 22And the house of Joseph, they also went up against Bethel: and the LORD was with them.H1004H3130H5927H1008H3068 23And the house of Joseph sent to descry Bethel. (Now the name of the city before was Luz.)H1004H3130H8446H1008H8034H5892H6440H3870 24And the spies saw a man come forth out of the city, and they said unto him, Shew us, we pray thee, the entrance into the city, and we will shew thee mercy.H8104H7200H376H3318H5892H559H7200H3996H5892H6213H2617 25And when he shewed them the entrance into the city, they smote the city with the edge of the sword; but they let go the man and all his family.H7200H3996H5892H5221H5892H6310H2719H7971H376H4940 26And the man went into the land of the Hittites, and built a city, and called the name thereof Luz: which is the name thereof unto this day.H376H3212H776H2850H1129H5892H7121H8034H3870H8034H3117

Incomplete Conquest of the Land

27Neither did Manasseh drive out the inhabitants of Bethshean and her towns, nor Taanach and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Ibleam and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns: but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.H4519H3423H1052H1323H8590H1323H3427H1756H1323H3427H2991H1323H3427H4023H1323H3669H2974H3427H776 28And it came to pass, when Israel was strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute, and did not utterly drive them out.H3478H2388H7760H3669H4522H3423H3423 29Neither did Ephraim drive out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer; but the Canaanites dwelt in Gezer among them.H669H3423H3669H3427H1507H3669H3427H1507H7130 30Neither did Zebulun drive out the inhabitants of Kitron, nor the inhabitants of Nahalol; but the Canaanites dwelt among them, and became tributaries.H2074H3423H3427H7003H3427H5096H3669H3427H7130H4522 31Neither did Asher drive out the inhabitants of Accho, nor the inhabitants of Zidon, nor of Ahlab, nor of Achzib, nor of Helbah, nor of Aphik, nor of Rehob:H836H3423H3427H5910H3427H6721H303H392H2462H663H7340 32But the Asherites dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: for they did not drive them out.H843H3427H7130H3669H3427H776H3423 33Neither did Naphtali drive out the inhabitants of Bethshemesh, nor the inhabitants of Bethanath; but he dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: nevertheless the inhabitants of Bethshemesh and of Bethanath became tributaries unto them.H5321H3423H3427H1053H3427H1043H3427H7130H3669H3427H776H3427H1053H1043H4522 34And the Amorites forced the children of Dan into the mountain: for they would not suffer them to come down to the valley:H567H3905H1121H1835H2022H5414H3381H6010 35But the Amorites would dwell in mount Heres in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim: yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed, so that they became tributaries.H567H2974H3427H2022H2776H357H8169H3027H1004H3130H3513H4522 36And the coast of the Amorites was from the going up to Akrabbim, from the rock, and upward.H1366H567H4608H4610H5553H4605
