From the massive temple complex at Karnak Egypt. Image is that of the very powerful XVIII dynasty ruler Thutmose III (r. 1457–1425 B.C.) slaying his Canaanite enemies. These enemies are held in his left hand and with upraised hands they plead for mercy.
Below Thutmose there are three rows of cartouches encircling the names of enemy captives. For details of the First Campaign of Thutmose III into the land of Canaan in 1457 B.C., his capture of Megiddo, and other events see the Zondervan Atlas of the Bible, pp. 100–102.
