Joshua 8:17

And there was not a man left in Ai or Bethel, that went not out after Israel: and they left the city open, and pursued after Israel.

AD 1849
Not one fit to bear arms. (Worthington) Bethel. As soon as the people of this city perceived the Israelites fleeing, they rushed out to assist the king of Hai in the pursuit. But when they saw the former rally, before they had joined their friends, (Calmet) they very prudently retired, and left the unhappy citizens of Hai to their fate. (Haydock) Hence all who were slain belonged to the latter city, ver. 25.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
