Bible Commentary for Joshua 11:9

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 11:9


11:7 Suddenly - When they least expected them, intending there to refresh, and prepare, and order themselves for the offensive war which they designed.

11:8 Great Zidon - A great city in the northwest part of Canaan, upon the sea. Misrephoth - maim - A place not far from Zidon, supposed to be so called from the salt or glass which they made there. Valley of Mizpeh - Under mount Hermon, as appears by comparing this with ver.#3|, and 17. where it seems to be called the valley of Lebanon. This lay on the east, as Zidon did on the west; and so it seems they fled several ways, and the Israelites also divided themselves into two bodies, one pursuing east, and the other west.

11:10 The king - In his royal city, to which he fled out of the battle. Head of these kingdoms - Not of all Canaan, but of all those who were confederate with him in this expedition.

11:11 Not any left - That is, no human person.
