(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Twenty and five thousand, besides the odd hundred expressed Jud_20:35; but here only the great number is expressed, the less being omitted, as inconsiderable; which way of numbering is frequent in Scripture, as Jud_11:26 2Sa_5:5, and in other authors, and in vulgar use; as when they are called the seventy interpreters, who in truth and exactness were seventy-two. Here are also a thousand more omitted, because here he speaks only of them who fell in that third day of battle. See Poole "Jud_20:15".
