(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:


The nations left to prove Israel mentioned, Jud_3:1-4. The Israelites marrying their daughters, and serving their gods, they are delivered up to the king of Mesopotamia; are rescued by Othniel, Jud_3:5-11. Continuing to do evil, they are again punished and oppressed by the king of the Moabites; are rescued by Ehud: ten thousand Moabites are slain, Jud_3:12-30. They are afterwards delivered from the Philistines by Shamgar, Jud_3:31.

i.e. Such who had no experience of those wars, nor of God’s extraordinary power and providence manifested in them.
