And the king of Ai he hanged on a tree until eventide: and as soon as the sun was down, Joshua commanded that they should take his carcase down from the tree, and cast it at the entering of the gate of the city, and raise thereon a great heap of stones, [that remaineth] unto this day." {Jsh 8:28-29}.

only the spoil:
"Only the cattle and the spoil of that city Israel took for a prey unto themselves, according unto the word of the LORD which he commanded Joshua." {Jsh 8:27} + "But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, [even] all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee." {Deu 20:14} + "Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay; ... He may prepare [it], but the just shall put [it] on, and the innocent shall divide the silver." {Job 27:16-17} + "Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up [riches], and knoweth not who shall gather them." {Psa 39:6} + "A good [man] leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner [is] laid up for the just." {Prv 13:22} + "A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent." {Prv 28:20} + "[As] the partridge sitteth [on eggs], and hatcheth [them] not; [so] he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool." {Jer 17:11} + "But God said unto him, [Thou] fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? ... So [is] he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God." {Lke 12:20-21}
lay thee:
"Then ye shall rise up from the ambush, and seize upon the city: for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand." {Jsh 8:7} + "Joshua therefore sent them forth: and they went to lie in ambush, and abode between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of Ai: but Joshua lodged that night among the people." {Jsh 8:9} + "And he took about five thousand men, and set them to lie in ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city." {Jsh 8:12} + "And it came to pass, when the king of Ai saw [it], that they hasted and rose up early, and the men of the city went out against Israel to battle, he and all his people, at a time appointed, before the plain; but he wist not that [there were] liers in ambush against him behind the city." {Jsh 8:14} + "And the ambush arose quickly out of their place, and they ran as soon as he had stretched out his hand: and they entered into the city, and took it, and hasted and set the city on fire." {Jsh 8:19} + "And Israel set liers in wait round about Gibeah. ...
