all the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon to Misrephoth-maim, even all the Sidonians. I will drive them out from before the children of Israel; only allot it to Israel for an inheritance, as I have commanded you. Bible

“even all the Sidonians. I will drive them out from before the children of Israel.” Israel never really gained any control of this northern land by Tyre and Sidon, and there is no record that they really ever attempted to conquer it.

“only allot it to Israel for an inheritance.” When it comes to the remaining land that Israel had not yet conquered, God told Joshua to divide it up and allot it to Israel and that they would have to possess it later.
