The Israelite Conquest of the Ancient Middle East

According to the Old Testament, God promised the Israelites the land between the Nile and the Euphrates. This land according to the Bible was inhabited by the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and occupied much of this land. The Bible gives details of how it was occupied and how its cities were destroyed and plundered and their citizens massacred by the Israelites. There are remarkable similarities between what happened then and what is happening today in the Holy Land. So, it is interesting to note what the Bible has to say about the Israelite occupation of the Holy Land in about 1200 BC. There are hundreds of verses describing the destruction of the cities and the massacre of the inhabitants of the Holy Land, but I can only give a few for editorial reasons. The Bible from which these quotations are taken is the New International Version of the Philippines Bible Society, Manila 1984, and the chapter and verse number precede the quotes.
