And this is the thing that ye shall do, Ye shall utterly destroy every male, and every woman that hath lain by man.
Darby Bible Translation

Young's Literal Translation
And this is the thing which ye do; every male, and every woman knowing the lying of a male, ye devote.'

The crime of the men of Gibeah was of the deepest die; the punishment, involving both the guilty and innocent, was extended to the most criminal excess; and their mode or redressing the evil which they had occasioned was equally abominable.

Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man,
They found among the people living in Jabesh Gilead four hundred young women who had never slept with a man, and they took them to the camp at Shiloh in Canaan.
