Joshua 11:2-4 New English Translation (NET Bible)

and the northern kings who ruled in[a] the hill country, in the rift valley south of Kinnereth,[b] in the foothills, and on the heights of Dor to the west. Canaanites came[c] from the east and west; Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, and Jebusites from the hill country; and Hivites from below Hermon in the area[d] of Mizpah. 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.[e]


  1. Joshua 11:2 tn Heb “and to the kings who [are] from the north in.”
  2. Joshua 11:2 tn Heb “Chinneroth,” a city and plain located in the territory of Naphtali in Galilee (BDB 490 s.v. כִּנֶּרֶת, כִּנֲרוֹת).sn Kinnereth was a city in Galilee located near the Sea of Galilee (Deut 3:17). The surrounding region also became known by this name (1 Kgs 15:20; cf. Matt 14:34), and eventually even the lake itself (Josh 12:3; cf. Luke 5:1). The “rift valley south of” Galilee probably refers to the northern part of the Jordan Valley from the lake to where the Jezreel Valley joins the rift valley. Dor is nearly due west from that point.
  3. Joshua 11:3 tn The verb “came” is supplied in the translation (see v. 4).
  4. Joshua 11:3 tn Or “land.”
  5. Joshua 11:4 tn Heb “They and all their camps with them came out, a people as numerous as the sand which is on the edge of the sea in multitude, and [with] horses and chariots very numerous.”
