Joshua 8:28-29

8:28 Joshua burned Ai and made it a permanently uninhabited mound (it remains that way to this very day). 8:29 He hung the king of Ai on a tree, leaving him exposed until evening. At sunset Joshua ordered that his corpse be taken down from the tree. They threw it down at the entrance of the city gate and erected over it a large pile of stones (it remains to this very day).

tn Heb “and made it a permanent mound, a desolation, to this day.”

tn Heb “on a tree until evening.” The words “leaving him exposed” are supplied in the translation for clarity.

sn For the legal background of this action, see Deut 21:22-23.

tn Heb “to this day.”
