Hazor

Additional Links

Before Israel’s conquest of Canaan, Hazor was the chief city of the far northern region of Canaan. When the armies of Israel entered Canaan under Joshua, they conquered Hazor and burnt it (Joshua 11:1; Joshua 11:10-11). In the division of Canaan that followed, Hazor fell within the tribal area of Naphtali (Joshua 19:32; Joshua 19:36). Later the local people regained control of Hazor and rebuilt the city, though in due course the Israelites drove them out (Judges 4:2; Judges 4:23-24). In the reign of Solomon, Hazor became Israel’s main defence outpost on its northern frontier (1 Kings 9:15).
