and to the kings who were in the north, in the hill country, in the Arabah south of the Sea of Chinneroth, in the lowland, and in the heights of Dor in the west, Bible see other translations

“Arabah.” The Jordan River Valley. The Arabah is part of the Great Rift Valley that goes from Africa north into Syria.

the Sea of Chinneroth.” The “Sea of Chinneroth.” is better known as the Sea of Galilee. However, the name is plural here in Joshua 11:2, and so some scholars believe that Chinneroth refers to a town by that name although most scholars do not agree with that. For more on the name, see commentary on Deuteronomy 3:17.

“Dor in the west.” The city of Dor is on the Mediterranean coast, on the coastal plain.
