John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Joshua 6:21

And they utterly destroyed all that [was] in the city
All the inhabitants of it, by the direction of Joshua, and according to the order of the Lord, ( Deuteronomy 7:1 Deuteronomy 7:2 ) ; being guilty of capital crimes, which deserved death, as idolatry, incest

both men and women, young and old;
neither sex nor age were spared:

and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword;
in which creatures chiefly lay the substance of the eastern people; see ( Job 1:3 ) .
