The ambushers hurried and rushed on Gibeah, and the ambushers spread out and struck the whole city with the mouth of the sword. Bible

“the ambushers spread out and struck the whole city.” Upon entering the city, knowing that the fighting men had left, the ambushers spread out and went throughout the whole city killing the people there.

“the mouth of the sword.” Used to show great destruction, as if the sword was eating its victims (see commentary on Josh. 6:21).
