And they smote all the souls that [were] therein with
edge of the sword, utterly destroying [them]
Men, women, and children:

any human creature; for as for the cattle they were taken for a prey:
and he burnt Hazor with fire;
as he did Jericho and Ai, though no other cities he had taken; but it seems that this city, though burnt, was built again and inhabited by Canaanites, who had a king over them of the same name with this in the times of Deborah, ( Judges 4:2 ) .
