do modern Jews still believe in genocide?

according to the holy book of the Jews, G*d commanded the Jews to slaughter men, women, children, the elderly, infants (you get the picture) and to SPARE NO ONE.

One example is 1 Samuel 15:1-3

“And Samuel said to Saul, “The Lord sent me to anoint you king over his people Israel; now therefore listen to the words of the Lord. Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘I have noted what Amalek did to Israel in opposing them on the way when they came up out of Egypt. Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’”

There’s also the case of G*d killing all the Egyptian firstborns.

This is just simply concerning to me as an atheist. I believe that genociding people and slaughtering innocent civilians is wrong. The torah actually disturbs me to be honest.
