Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 1:2

_ _ the Lord said, Judah shall go up — The predicted pre-eminence (Genesis 49:8) was thus conferred upon Judah by divine direction, and its appointment to take the lead in the ensuing hostilities was of great importance, as the measure of success by which its arms were crowned, would animate the other tribes to make similar attempts against the Canaanites within their respective territories.

_ _ I have delivered the land into his hand — not the whole country, but the district assigned for his inheritance.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 1:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 1:2

Judah — The tribe of Judah is chosen for the first enterprise, because they were both most populous, and so most needing enlargement; and withal most valiant, and therefore most likely to succeed: for God chooseth fit means for the work which he designs. Moreover the Canaanites were numerous and strong in those parts, and therefore to be suppressed, before they grew too strong for them.
