Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 11:2

_ _ Thou shalt not inherit in our father’s house — As there were children by the legitimate wife, the son of the secondary one was not entitled to any share of the patrimony, and the prior claim of the others was indisputable. Hence, as the brothers of Jephthah seem to have resorted to rude and violent treatment, they must have been influenced by some secret ill-will.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 11:1-3.
