SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:40 Hirió pues Josué toda la región de las montañas, y del mediodía, y de los llanos, y de las cuestas, con todos sus reyes, sin quedar nada; todo lo que tenía vida mató, de la manera que el SEÑOR Dios de Israel lo había mandado.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 10:40 Verse 40. All the country of the hills] See the note on Deut. i. 7.
Destroyed all that breathed] Every person found in arms who continued to resist; these were all destroyed,-those who submitted were spared: but many no doubt made their escape, and afterwards reoccupied certain parts of the land. See ver. 36, 37.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 40. So Joshua smote all the country of the hills and of the south, and of the vale, and of the springs, and all their kings , etc.] That part of the land of Canaan which lay southward, and consisted of hills and vales; which abounded with springs, and was a well watered country, and agrees with the description Moses gives of it, though he never saw it, ( Deuteronomy 8:7); he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed ; that is, all human creatures; for as for the cattle, they were spared as a prey: as the Lord God of Israel commanded ; this law is extant, ( Deuteronomy 20:16); and which is here observed to clear the Israelites from the charge of cruelty and inhumanity; since what they did was not of themselves, nor from a private spirit of revenge, nor a greedy desire after the substance of the inhabitants; but in obedience to the command of God, and who ordered this as a righteous punishment of those people for their gross abominations of idolatry, incest, etc. (see Leviticus 18:1-30).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 28-43 - Joshua made speed in taking these cities. See what a great deal of wor may be done in a little time, if we will be diligent, and improve ou opportunities. God here showed his hatred of the idolatries and othe abominations of which the Canaanites had been guilty, and shows us ho great the provocation was, by the greatness of the destruction brough upon them. Here also was typified the destruction of all the enemies of the Lord Jesus, who, having slighted the riches of his grace, must for ever feel the weight of his wrath. The Lord fought for Israel. The could not have gotten the victory, if God had not undertaken the battle. We conquer when God fights for us; if he be for us, who can be against us __________________________________________________________________
