Geneva Study BibleGeneva Study Bible

Verse 4

10:4 And he had thirty sons that {a} rode on thirty ass colts, and they had thirty cities, which are called Havothjair unto this day, which [are] in the land of Gilead.

(a) Signifying, they were men of authority.

Verse 8

10:8 And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, {b} all the children of Israel that [were] on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which [is] in Gilead.

(b) As the Reubenites, Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh.

Verse 10

10:10 And the children of Israel {c} cried unto the LORD, saying, We have sinned against thee, both because we have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim.

(c) They prayed to the Lord, and confessed their sins.

Verse 11

10:11 And the LORD {d} said unto the children of Israel, [Did] not [I deliver you] from the Egyptians, and from the Amorites, from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines?

(d) By stirring them up some prophets, as in Jud 6:8.

Verse 15

10:15 And the children of Israel said unto the LORD, We have sinned: do thou unto us whatsoever seemeth good unto thee; deliver us only, we pray thee, {e} this day.

(e) That is, from this present danger.

Verse 16

10:16 And they put away the strange gods from among them, and {f} served the LORD: and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel.

(f) This is true repentance, to put away evil, and serve God aright.
