Any left to breathe
Thus Joshua struck all the land,
the hill country and the Negev and the lowland and the slopes and all their kings. He left no survivor, but he utterly destroyed all who breathed, just as the Lord, the God of Israel, had commanded.
then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and
destroy all their figured stones, and destroy all their molten images and demolish all their high places;
But all the animals and the spoil of the cities we took as our booty.
Only in the cities of these peoples that the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, you shall not leave alive anything that breathes.
