What does Joshua 10:28 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Joshua 10:28

And that day Joshua took Makkedah
Some say it was the day on which the sun stood still; but it seems to mean the day in which the five kings were hanged:

and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof;
slew the inhabitants of it and their king, after having entered and taken it:

he utterly destroyed them and all the souls that [were] therein, he
let none remain;
that is, all human souls or persons; for the cattle were taken for a prey:

and he did to the king of Makkedah as he did unto the king of Jericho;
slew him with the sword, along with the inhabitants, but did not hang him up, as he did the king of Ai and the five kings.
