  not only the Canaanites Numbers God tells Moses to exterminate the residents of Canaan and destroy all of their religious symbols and possessions. 33:50-52 God delivers the Amorites into Moses' hands. (You're in God hands with Moses.) So Moses does the usual thing, killing everyone "until their was none left alive." 21:34-35 31:1-54. Under God's direction, Moses' army defeats the Midianites. They kill all the adult males, but take the women and children captive. When Moses learns that they left some live, he angrily says: "Have you saved all the women alive?
