Joshua 11:21-23

Context

11:21 At that time Joshua attacked and eliminated the Anakites from the hill country 1  – from Hebron, Debir, Anab, and all the hill country of Judah and Israel. 2  Joshua annihilated them and their cities. 11:22 No Anakites were left in Israelite territory, though some remained in Gaza, Gath, and Ashdod. 11:23 Joshua conquered 3  the whole land, just as the Lord had promised Moses, 4  and he assigned Israel their tribal portions. 5  Then the land was free of war.

1 tn Heb “went and cut off the Anakites from the hill country.”

2 tn Heb “and from all the hill country of Israel.”

3 tn Heb “took.”

4 tn Heb “according to all which the Lord said to Moses.” The translation assumes this refers to the promise of the land (see 1:3). Another possibility is that it refers to the Lord’s instructions, in which case the phrase could be translated, “just as the Lord had instructed Moses” (so NLT; cf. also NIV “had directed Moses”).

5 tn Heb “and Joshua gave it for an inheritance to Israel according to their allotted portions by their tribes.”
