Israel took only the livestock and the spoil of that city as plunder for themselves, according to the word of Yahweh that he commanded Joshua. Bible

“only the livestock and the spoil.” God said that Israel could plunder Ai and take the livestock and other plunder (Josh. 8:2), but they could not, and did not, take captives, they only took the other spoil.

“according to the word of Yahweh that he commanded Joshua.” The obedience of Joshua to the word of Yahweh is a theme of the Book of Joshua.
