(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Object. This agrees not with the following numbers; for all that were slain of Benjamin were 25,100 men, Jud_20:35, and there were only 600 that survived, Jud_20:47, which make only 25,700.

Answ. The other thousand men were either left in some of their cities, where they were slain, Jud_20:48, or were cut off in the two first battles, wherein it is reasonable to think they had an unbloody victory; and as for these 25,100 men, they were all slain in that day, i.e. the day of the third battle, as is affirmed, Jud_20:35.
