Israel Defeats a Northern Coalition

11:1 When King Jabin of Hazor 1  heard the news, he organized a coalition, including 2  King Jobab of Madon, the king of Shimron, the king of Acshaph, 11:2 and the northern kings who ruled in 3  the hill country, the Arabah south of Kinnereth, 4  the lowlands, and the heights of Dor to the west. 11:3 Canaanites came 5  from the east and west; Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, and Jebusites from the hill country; and Hivites from below Hermon in the area 6  of Mizpah. 11:4 These kings came out with their armies; they were as numerous as the sand on the seashore and had a large number of horses and chariots. 7  11:5 All these kings gathered and joined forces 8  at the Waters of Merom to fight Israel.
