Joshua 11:5 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

All these kings and their country Joshua took "once," i.e., in one campaign, which lasted, however, a considerable time (cf. Joshua 11:18). He was able to accomplish this, because Jehovah the God of Israel fought for Israel (see Joshua 10:14). After this he returned with the army to the camp at Gilgal (Jiljilia; cf. Joshua 10:15).
