or any other violent punishment.
I apologise to all women for the sins of man.

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. Thus shalt
thou do unto all the cities which are very far off from thee,
which are not of the cities of these nations. But of the cities
of these people, which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an
inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: But

his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not
