(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Judah went with Simeon his brother, according to his promise, Jud_1:3, and the laws of justice and gratitude.

Hormah; either,

1. The same place so destroyed and called, Num_21:3, and so what was there vowed is here executed; or,

2. Some other place called by the same name upon the like occasion, which was frequent among the Hebrews. This seems more probable,

1. Because this was but one city, that divers cities, Num_21:2,3.

2. Because that seems to have been done in Moses’s time, though interpreters generally think otherwise; of which see my notes there.
