B’ (7b) and all the people of war with him, against them by the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them.
A’ (8) And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto Misrephothmaim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and they smote them, until they left them none remaining.
