Bible Commentary for Judges 6:6

Wesley's Notes for Judges 6:6


6:4 Unto Gaza - That is, from the east, on which side they entered, to the well, where Gaza was, near the sea: so they destroyed the whole land.

6:5 Without number - That is, so many that it was not easy to number them. And not in a regular army to engage, but in a confused swarm, to plunder the country. Yet Israel, being forsaken of God, had not spirit to make head against them; God fighting against them with those very terrors, with which otherwise he would have fought for them.

6:8 A prophet - We have reason to hope, God is designing mercy for us, if we find he is by his grace preparing us for it.
