At that time Joshua turned back and captured Hazor and put its king to the sword.1 (Hazor had been the head of all these kingdoms.)
Everyone in it they put to the sword. They totally destroyeda them,2 not sparing anything that breathed,3 and he burned up4 Hazor itself.
Joshua took all these royal cities and their kings and put them to the sword. He totally destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded.513
Yet Israel did not burn any of the cities built on their mounds--except Hazor, which Joshua burned.
The Israelites carried off for themselves all the plunder and livestock of these cities, but all the people they put to the sword until they completely destroyed them, not sparing anyone that breathed.6
