After Elgon Joshua turned his attention to Hebron and fought against it. And he took Hebron and smote it with the edge of the sword, its king, and all the cities thereof, and all the people thereof allowing none to escape as he had done unto Eglon. And Joshua returned from Eglon, he and all the company of Israel, and turned his attack on Debir and fought against it. And he took Debir and its king and all the cities and all the people thereof and did to Debir as he had done unto Eglon and Hebron. So Joshua smote all the countries of the Hill and the south and of the valley and of the springs and of all their kings he left none remaining but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the Lord God of Israel commanded. So Joshua gained complete victory over all his enemies from Kadesh-barnea even unto Gaza and all the country of Goshen unto Gibeon; and all their kings were destroyed and their lands taken in one single campaign as the Lord had promised, because the Lord was with Israel; and then Joshua returned to Gilgal which was his base.
