Judges Chapter 3

Judges 3:1
3:1 Now these [are] the nations which the LORD left, to prove
    Israel by them, [even] as many [of Israel] as had not known
    all the {a} wars of Canaan;

    (a) Which were achieved by the hand of God, and not by the
        power of man.

Judges 3:2
3:2 Only that the generations of the children of Israel might
    know, to teach them war, at the least such as before knew
    {b} nothing thereof;

    (b) For they trusted in God and he fought for them.

Judges 3:6
3:6 And they took {c} their daughters to be their wives, and
    gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods.

    (c) Contrary to God's commandment, Deuteronomy 7:3.

Judges 3:7
3:7 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the
    LORD, and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and
    the {d} groves.

    (d) Or Ashteroth, trees or woods erected for idolatry.

Judges 3:10
3:10 And the {e} Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged
     Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered
     Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and
     his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim.

     (e) He was stirred up by the Spirit of the Lord.

Judges 3:11
3:11 And the land had rest {f} forty years. And Othniel the son
     of Kenaz died.

     (f) That is, 32 under Joshua and 8 under Othniel.

Judges 3:12
3:12 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of
     the LORD: and the LORD {g} strengthened Eglon the king of
     Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the
     sight of the LORD.

     (g) So that the enemies of God's people have no power over
         them, but by God's appointment.

Judges 3:19
3:19 But he himself turned again from the {h} quarries that
     [were] by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto
     thee, O king: who said, Keep {i} silence.  And all that
     stood by him went out from him.

     (h) Or, as some read from the places of idols.
     (i) Till all be departed.

Judges 3:30
3:30 So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And
     the {k} land had rest fourscore years.

     (k) Meaning, the Israelites.

Judges 3:31
3:31 And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of
     the Philistines six hundred men with an ox {l} goad: and he
     also delivered Israel.

     (l) So that it is not the number, nor the means that God
         regards, when he will get the victory.
