Joshua 11:8-13

Context
11:8 The Lord handed them over to Israel and they struck them down and chased them all the way to Greater Sidon, 1  Misrephoth Maim, 2  and the Mizpah Valley to the east. They struck them down until no survivors remained. 11:9 Joshua did to them as the Lord had commanded him; he hamstrung their horses and burned 3  their chariots.

11:10 At that time Joshua turned, captured Hazor, 4  and struck down its king with the sword, for Hazor was at that time 5  the leader of all these kingdoms. 11:11 They annihilated everyone who lived there with the sword 6  – no one who breathed remained – and burned 7  Hazor.

11:12 Joshua captured all these royal cities and all their kings and annihilated them with the sword, 8  as Moses the Lord’s servant had commanded. 11:13 But Israel did not burn any of the cities located on mounds, 9  except for Hazor; 10  it was the only one Joshua burned.
