11 Everyone in it they put to the sword. They totally destroyed[1] them, not sparing anyone that breathed, and he burned Hazor itself.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Joshua 11:11

Commentary on Joshua 11:10-14

(Read Joshua 11:10-14)

The Canaanites filled up the measure of their iniquity, and were, as a judgment, left to the pride, obstinacy, and enmity of their hearts, and to the power of Satan; all restraints being withdrawn, while the dispensations of Providence tended to drive them to despair. They brought on themselves the vengeance they justly merited, of which the Israelites were to be executioners, by the command the Lord gave to Moses.
