New American Standard Bible
"Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known man intimately.

King James Bible
Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
So now, kill all the male children and kill every woman who has had sexual relations with a man,
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

kill every male. The sword of war should spare women and children, as incapable of resisting; but the sword of justice knows no distinction, except that of guilty or not guilty, or more or less guilty. This was the execution of a righteous sentence upon a guilty nation, in which the women were the greatest criminals; and it may safely be said, that their lives were forfeited by their personal transgressions. With respect to the execution of the male infants, who cannot be supposed to have been guilty, God, the author and supporter of life, who has a right to dispose of it when and how he thinks proper, commanded it; and 'shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?'

Judges 21:11,12 And this is the thing that you shall do, You shall utterly destroy …

him. Heb. a male
