Matthew Poole Commentary - Judges 7:25 - 7:25

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

For Gideon in the pursuit had passed over Jordan, as we read, Jud_8:4, which, though mentioned after this, may seem to have been done before it, such transpositions being frequent in sacred story. Or, on this side Jordan, for the Hebrew word is indifferent to both sides: see Gen_1:10. And so this is opposed to what follows of his passing over Jordan, Jud_8:4. And then there is no anticipation here.
