John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 11:24

Wilt not thou — He speaks according to their absurd opinion: the Ammonites and Moabites got their land by conquest of the old inhabitants, whom they cast out; and this success, though given them by the true God, for Lot's sake, Deuteronomy 2:9, Deuteronomy 2:19, they impiously ascribe to their god Chemosh, whose gift they owned to be a sufficient title.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Judges 11:24

Wilt not thou possess that which Chemosh thy god giveth thee to possess? So whomsoever the (h) LORD our God shall drive out from before us, them will we possess.

(h) For we should believe and obey God more than you your idols.

Cross-Reference Topical ResearchStrong's Concordance
Wilt not thou possess:
This is simply an argumentum ad hominem; in which Jephthah argues on this principles recognized by the king of Ammon. As if he had said, "You suppose that the land which you possess was given you by your god Chemosh; and therefore will not relinquish what you believe you hold by a divine right. Now we know that Jehovah, our God, has given us the land of the Israelites; and therefore we will not give it up."
