And they took it on that day
The same day they encamped about it and besieged it; the besieged finding they were not able to keep it:
and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that [were]
therein he utterly destroyed that day;
made an utter devastation of all its inhabitants:
according to all that he had done to Lachish;
the last city he took; this having no king as that had not, its king being one of the five that had been hanged, ( Joshua 10:26 ) .
