{Joshua 8:17} And there was not x3808 a man 376 left 7604 z8738 in Ai 5857 or Bethel, 1008 that x834 went not out 3318 z8804 x3808 after 310 Israel: 3478 and they left 5800 z8799 x853 the city 5892 open, 6605 z8803 and pursued 7291 z8799 after x310 Israel. 3478

"So Joshua arose, and all the people of war, to go up against Ai: and Joshua chose out thirty thousand mighty men of valour, and sent them away by night." {Jsh 8:3} + "And it came to pass, when Israel had made an end of slaying all the inhabitants of Ai in the field, in the wilderness wherein they chased them, and when they were all fallen on the edge of the sword, until they were consumed, that all the Israelites returned unto Ai, and smote it with the edge of the sword. ... And [so] it was, [that] all that fell that day, both of men and women, [were] twelve thousand, [even] all the men of Ai." {Jsh 8:24-25} + "For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, [and] that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses." {Jsh 11:20} + "But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as [appeareth] this day." {Deu 2:30} + "He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong." {Job 5:13} + "Surely the princes of Zoan [are] fools, the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaoh, I [am] the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings? ... The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, [even they that are] the stay of the tribes thereof." {Isa 19:11-13}
Bethel is not mentioned in the Greek version, and some, with Houbigant and Pilkington, think it was not originally in the Hebrew; because, had the men of Bethel pursued, as well as those of Ai, it would have been said that they left the cities, and not the city, open. The principal strength of Bethel might have been previously taken into Ai, as the strongest place to make a stand in; Bethel being but about three miles westward from Ai. - Cross Reference Bible Search
