Joshua 12

Joshua 12 lists the kings that were defeated as the people took over the Promised Land.  We need to keep in mind that although God gave the Isrealites this home land – it wasn’t without some effort.  Moses began the process on one side of the Jordan, and Joshua finished the job on the other side.  Here is what scripture records as the victories that were won.

For Moses:

  • Sihon king of the Amorites
  • Og king of Bashan
  • Sihon king of Heshbon

And Moses the servant of the Lord gave their land for a possession to the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh”.

For Joshua:

  • the king of Jericho
  • the king of Ai
  • the king of Jerusalem
  • the king of Hebron
  • the king of Jarmuth
  • the king of Lachish
  • the king of Eglon
  • the king of Gezer
  • the king of Debir
  • the king of Geder
  • the king of Hormah
  • the king of Arad
  • the king of Libnah
  • the king of Adullam
  • the king of Makkedah
  • the king of Bethel
  • the king of Tappuah
  • the king of Hepher
  • the king of Aphek
  • the king of Lasharon
  • the king of Madon
  • the king of Hazor
  • the king of Shimron-meron
  • the king of Achshaph
  • the king of Taanach
  • the king of Megiddo
  • the king of Kedesh
  • the king of Jokneam in Carmel
  • the king of Dor in Naphath-dor
  • the king of Goiim in Galilee
  • the king of Tirzah

Joshua wins the contest as he dealt with “in all, thirty-one kings”.
