Wesley's Notes for Judges 1:17


1:17 Judah went with Simeon - According to his promise, ver.#3|, and the laws of justice and gratitude. Hormah - Either, The same place so called, #Numb 21:3|, and so what was there vowed, is here executed: or, Some other place called by the same name upon the like occasion, which was frequent among the Hebrews. This seems more probable.
