    Joshua 12 Dead Kings

    Joshua 12:1 These are the kings of the land whom the Israelites had defeated and whose territory they took over east of the Jordan, from the Arnon Gorge to Mount Hermon, including all the eastern side of the Arabah:

    2 Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon.

    He ruled from Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Gorge—from the middle of the gorge—to the Jabbok River, which is the border of the Ammonites. This included half of Gilead. 3 He also ruled over the eastern Arabah from the Sea of Galilee[a] to the Sea of the Arabah (that is, the Dead Sea), to Beth Jeshimoth, and then southward below the slopes of Pisgah.

    4 And the territory of Og king of Bashan, one of the last of the Rephaites, who reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei.

    5 He ruled over Mount Hermon, Salekah, all of Bashan to the border of the people of Geshur and Maakah, and half of Gilead to the border of Sihon king of Heshbon.

    6 Moses, the servant of the Lord, and the Israelites conquered them. And Moses the servant of the Lord gave their land to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh to be their possession.

    7 Here is a list of the kings of the land that Joshua and the Israelites conquered on the west side of the Jordan, from Baal Gad in the Valley of Lebanon to Mount Halak, which rises toward Seir. Joshua gave their lands as an inheritance to the tribes of Israel according to their tribal divisions. 8 The lands included the hill country, the western foothills, the Arabah, the mountain slopes, the wilderness and the Negev. These were the lands of the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. These were the kings:

    9 the king of Jericho one
    the king of Ai (near Bethel) one
    10 the king of Jerusalem one
    the king of Hebron one
    11 the king of Jarmuth one
    the king of Lachish one
    12 the king of Eglon one
    the king of Gezer one
    13 the king of Debir one
    the king of Geder one
    14 the king of Hormah one
    the king of Arad one
    15 the king of Libnah one
    the king of Adullam one
    16 the king of Makkedah one
    the king of Bethel one
    17 the king of Tappuah one
    the king of Hepher one
    18 the king of Aphek one
    the king of Lasharon one
    19 the king of Madon one
    the king of Hazor one
    20 the king of Shimron Meron one
    the king of Akshaph one
    21 the king of Taanach one
    the king of Megiddo one
    22 the king of Kedesh one
    the king of Jokneam in Carmel one
    23 the king of Dor (in Naphoth Dor) one
    the king of Goyim in Gilgal one
    24 the king of Tirzah one
    thirty-one kings in all.

    a. Joshua 12:3 Hebrew Kinnereth

    This is from the blueletterbible.org site.

    Why do we have such an exhaustive, and seemingly tedious list? It only seems tedious to us because we do not live in the land. For those who really had their inheritance there, these were essential matters that touched every day life, answering the question: "What land belongs to Israel?"

    So it's a list. Preachers might have a hard time preaching out of this chapter. It's a list.

    So since this is a list of conquered kings.... maybe maps would be appropriate.

    If you want accuracy in history, one had better exhaustively document it. The writers of the Bible were just chronicling what God has dictated to them, to write in their own style

    And that it was written in a manner that kept things very simple because most were illiterate and uneducated in those days.

    That started to change during the Exile around 586 BC. Until then, the family was the primary education centers; after, formal education by the Rabbi's including reading and writing began to develop for boys in the synagogues. Girls were usually schooled by women on the usual homemaking/wifely things, but some girls did receive formal training. The main method was rote and memorization, followed by more memorization and rote. After the exile, the scribes, or teachers, began to do the teaching for all boys and some girls, at least an elementary stage. More advanced formal training became more and more available as well.
