{Joshua 8:24} And it came to pass, x1961 when Israel 3478 had made an end 3615 z8763 of slaying 2026 z8800 x853 all x3605 the inhabitants 3427 z8802 of Ai 5857 in the field, 7704 in the wilderness 4057 wherein x834 they chased 7291 z8804 them, and when they were all x3605 fallen 5307 z8799 on the edge 6310 of the sword, 2719 until x5704 they were consumed, 8552 z8800 that all x3605 the Israelites 3478 returned 7725 z8799 unto Ai, 5857 and smote 5221 z8686 it with the edge 6310 of the sword. 2719

"And the LORD delivered it also, and the king thereof, into the hand of Israel; and he smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that [were] therein; he let none remain in it; but did unto the king thereof as he did unto the king of Jericho. ... And Joshua smote them from Kadeshbarnea even unto Gaza, and all the country of Goshen, even unto Gibeon." {Jsh 10:30-41} + "And Joshua at that time turned back, and took Hazor, and smote the king thereof with the sword: for Hazor beforetime was the head of all those kingdoms. ... And all the spoil of these cities, and the cattle, the children of Israel took for a prey unto themselves; but every man they smote with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them, neither left they any to breathe." {Jsh 11:10-14} + "And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even unto the children of Ammon: for the border of the children of Ammon [was] strong." {Num 21:24}
