Joshua 10:40-42 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

40 In this way Joshua struck the whole land: the hill country,[a] the Negev,[b] the Shephelah,[c] and the slopes,[d] together with all their kings. He did not leave a survivor. Every breathing thing he devoted to destruction, just as the Lord, the God of Israel, had commanded him. 41 Joshua struck them from Kadesh Barnea all the way to Gaza and from the whole land of Goshen[e] all the way to Gibeon. 42 All of these kings and their land Joshua captured at one time because the Lord, the God of Israel, was fighting for Israel.


  1. Joshua 10:40 Or highlands. The Hebrew is literally the mountain. The translation retains the traditional rendering hill country for the highland regions of Israel. Here it refers to the central mountain ridge of Israel.
  2. Joshua 10:40 The Negev is the arid region in the southern part of Judah. EHV uses the book of Joshua to teach the Hebrew geographic terms which occur frequently as English transliterations.
  3. Joshua 10:40 Shephelah, which means “low region,” is the name for the foothills west of the hill country.
  4. Joshua 10:40 The slopes seem to be the descents on the eastern and western sides of the hill country.
  5. Joshua 10:41 This Goshen seems to be along the western side of Judah and is not to be confused with the Goshen in Egypt.
