Context
Joshua Launches a Southern Campaign

10:28 That day Joshua captured Makkedah and put the sword to it and its king. He annihilated everyone who lived in it; he left no survivors. He did to its king what he had done to the king of Jericho. 1 

10:29 Joshua and all Israel marched from Makkedah to Libnah and fought against it. 2  10:30 The Lord handed it and its king over to Israel, and Israel 3  put the sword to all who lived there; they 4  left no survivors. They 5  did to its king what they 6  had done to the king of Jericho. 7 

10:31 Joshua and all Israel marched from Libnah to Lachish. He deployed his troops 8  and fought against it. 10:32 The Lord handed Lachish over to Israel and they 9  captured it on the second day. They put the sword to all who lived there, just as they had done to Libnah. 10:33 Then King Horam of Gezer came up to help Lachish, but Joshua struck down him and his army 10  until no survivors remained.

10:34 Joshua and all Israel marched from Lachish to Eglon. They deployed troops 11  and fought against it. 10:35 That day they captured it and put the sword to all who lived there. That day they 12  annihilated it just as they 13  had done to Lachish.

10:36 Joshua and all Israel marched up from Eglon to Hebron and fought against it. 10:37 They captured it and put the sword to its king, all its surrounding cities, and all who lived in it; they 14  left no survivors. As they 15  had done at Eglon, they 16  annihilated it and all who lived there.

10:38 Joshua and all Israel turned to Debir and fought against it. 10:39 They 17  captured it, its king, and all its surrounding cities and put the sword to them. They annihilated everyone who lived there; they 18  left no survivors. They 19  did to Debir and its king what they 20  had done to Libnah and its king and to Hebron. 21 

10:40 Joshua defeated the whole land, including the hill country, the Negev, the lowlands, 22  the slopes, and all their kings. He left no survivors. He annihilated everything that breathed, just as the Lord God of Israel had commanded.
