SynopsisThis passage simply sums up all of the kings that have been defeated by the Israelites, to date.
First, the kings that were defeated under Moses’ leadership:
- Sihon, king of the Amorites
- Some detail is given as to how much territory Sihon’s kingdom covered, which now belongs to the Israelites
- Og, king of Bashan
- Some detail is given as to how much territory Og’s kingdom covered, as well. Also, it’s mentioned that Og was the last of the Rephaites, although that doesn’t mean anything to me.
After this, the kings that were defeated by the Israelites under Joshua’s leadership are mentioned; they conquered the kings of: Jericho, Ai, Jerusalem, Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish, Eglon, Gezer, Debir, Geder, Hormah, Arad, Libnah, Adullam, Makkedah, Bethel, Tappuah, Hepher, Aphek, Lasharon, Madon, Hazor, Shimron Meron, Acshaph, Taanach, Megiddo, Kedesh, Jokneam (in Carmel), Dor (in Naphoth Dor), Goyim (in Gilgal), and Tirzah.
No detail is given about any of these kingdoms; how much territory they covered, or anything about them. They’re simply listed.
