This chapter continues and concludes the history
of the conquest of Canaan; of the reduction of the southern parts
we had an account in the foregoing chapter, after which we may
suppose Joshua allowed his forces some breathing-time; now here we
have the story of the war in the north, and the happy success of
that war. I. The confederacy of the northern crowns against Israel,
ver. 1-5. II. The
encouragement which God gave to Joshua to engage them, ver. 6. III. His victory over them,
ver. 7-9. IV. The taking
of their cities, ver.
10-15. V. The destruction of the Anakim, ver. 21, 22. VI. The general
conclusion of the story of this war, ver. 16-20, 23.
