14:21 Which went - Either by constraint, as servants; or in policy, to gain their favour and protection.

14:23 The battle - That is, the warriors who were engaged in the battle, and were pursuing the Philistines. Yet it is said, the Lord saved Israel that day: he did it by them: for without him they could do nothing. Salvation is of the Lord.

14:24 Distressed - With hunger, and weakness, and faintness, and all by reason of the following oath.
