Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 20:10

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 20:10


20:9 Make captains - Or rather, as the Hebrew hath it, they shall set or place the captains of the armies in the head or front of the people under their charge, that they may conduct them, and by their example encourage their soldiers. It is not likely they had their captains to make when they were just going to battle.
