Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
Each one of them seized his opponent by the head and thrust his sword in his opponent's side; so they fell down together. Therefore that place was called Helkath-hazzurim, which is in Gibeon.

King James Bible
And they caught every one his fellow by the head, and thrust his sword in his fellow's side; so they fell down together: wherefore that place was called Helkathhazzurim, which is in Gibeon.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
Then each man grabbed his opponent by the head and thrust his sword into his opponent's side so that they all died together. So this place, which is in Gibeon, is named Field of Blades.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

by the head Probably by the beard or hair of the head. Plutarch, in his {Apophthegms}, informs us, that all things being ready for a battle, Alexander's captains asked him whether he had any thing else to command them. `Nothing,' he said, `but that the Macedonians shave their beards.' Parmenio wondering what he meant, `Dost thou not know,' said he, `that in fight, there is no better hold than the beard?'

{Helkath-hazzurim}. That is, the field of strong men.
