I am confused about the chronology of things happening in chapter 1-2. I thought Joshua had died and the people of Israel went and fought the people living in the allotted inheritance and left some alive, but in a verse in chapter 2, it says Joshua left some alive. Also in the last verse it says that God didn't deliver the nations into Joshua's hands, when he was dead from chapter 1.
KJV - 23 Therefore the LORD left those nations, without driving them out hastily; neither delivered he them into the hand of Joshua.
