"We utterly destroyed them, as we did to Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women and children of every city.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And we utterly destroyed them,.... Not the cities, but the inhabitants of them:

as we did to Sihon king of Heshbon; they did not destroy his cities, for they took them and dwelt in them; but the people that lived there, as follows here:

utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city; see Deuteronomy 2:34.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Deuteronomy 3:6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.

Ver. 6. The men, women, and children.] The Hebrew word מהים, here rendered men, written with tsere, signifieth dead men: Surely every man in his best estate, or when best underlaid, is altogether vanity, Selah. [Psalms 39:5]

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary

Utterly. Yet out of the ruins they soon raised other strong cities, Numbers xxxii. 26. All the walls were not probably demolished, (ver. 19,) but only a part, so that they might be repaired with no great labour or expense. The inhabitants were all destroyed, that they might not pervert the Hebrews by their bad example; and because God had pronounced the sentence of death upon them, in punishment of their crimes. Hebrew seem to insinuate, that the cities were destroyed only by the death of the inhabitants. "We subjected them to anathema....utterly destroying the men," &c. (Haydock) --- We devoted to utter ruin the men, women, and children of the cities which we took. (Calmet)

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - Unabridged

And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.

We utterly destroyed them. It was a war of extermination: all classes of people were put to the sword, and nothing was saved but the cattle, of which an immense amount fell as spoil into the hands of the conquerors. Thus, the two Amorite kings and the entire population of their dominions were extirpated, and the whole country east of the Jordan-first, upland downs from the torrent of the Arnon on the south to that of the Jabbok on the north; next, the high mountain tract of Gilead and Bashan, from the deep ravine of Jabbok-became the possession of the Israelites.
