        Notice how the event was captured in verse 10: “And the LORD discomfited them before Israel, and slew then with that goeth up to Bethhooron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.”

This string of victories did not come to Israel by dint of hard work or military might; God fought for them. As long as Israel was in good still fights for His people. For those  who through repentance and faith in Christ have submitted their lives to God, He is the  source of their victory. When God’s fights for you, no confederacy of demons or men can withstand you.
