Let not the archer bend his bow,
and let him not stand up in his coat of mail.
And do not spare her young men;
devote to destruction all her army. Bible

“devote to destruction.” That is, devote them to Yahweh as an offering and destroy them. [For more on things “devoted” to Yahweh and devoted to destruction, see commentary on Josh. 6:17].
