Bible Commentary for Judges 9:21

Wesley's Notes for Judges 9:21


9:21 And fled - Which he might easily do, having the advantage of the hill, and because the people were not forward to pursue a man whom they knew to have such just cause to speak, and so little power to do them hurt. To Beer - A place remote from Shechem, and out of Abimelech's reach.
