(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

They slew one another, either because they suspected treachery, and so fell upon those they first met with; which they might more easily do, because they consisted of several nations, as may be gathered from Jud_6:3, and Josephus affirms; or because the darkness of the night made them unable to distinguish friends from foes; or because the suddenness of the thing struck them with horror and amazement; or because God infatuated them, as he hath done many others. Compare 1Sa_14:20 2Ch_20:23.

Abel-meholah; of which see 1Ki_4:12 19:16.
