Bible Commentary for Judges 20:15

Wesley's Notes for Judges 20:15


20:15 Were numbered - How does this agree with the following numbers? For all that were slain of Benjamin were twenty - five thousand and one hundred men, ver.#35|, and there were only six hundred that survived, ver.#47|, which make only twenty - five thousand and seven hundred. The other thousand men were either left in some of their cities, where they were slain, ver.#48|, or were cut off in the two first battles, wherein it is unreasonable to think they had an unbloody victory: and as for these twenty - five thousand and one hundred men, they were all slain in the third battle.
