    Clarke's Commentary on Joshua 11:21

    Cut off the Anakims - from Hebron, from Debir - This is evidently a recapitulation of the military operations detailed Joshua 10:36-41.

    Destroyed - their cities - That is, those of the Anakims; for from Joshua 11:13 we learn that Joshua preserved certain other cities.

    Barnes' Notes on Joshua 11:21

    At that time - i. e. in course of the "long time" mentioned in Joshua 11:18.

    The Anakims - See Numbers 13:22. As it was the report of the spies respecting the Anakims which, above all, struck terror into the Israelites in the wilderness, and caused their faithless complaining and revolt, so the sacred writer goes back here in his story to record pointedly the overthrow of this gigantic and formidable race. They had their chief settlements in the mountains around Hebron Joshua 10:3 or Debir. See Joshua 15:15.

    Anab was a city in the mountain district of Judah, lying some distance south of Hebron. It still bears its ancient name.
