John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 11:25

Than Balak — Art thou wiser than he? Or hast thou more right than he had? Balak, though he plotted against Israel, in defence of his own land, which he feared they would invade and conquer, yet never contended with them about the restitution of those lands which Sihon took from him or his predecessors.

Just noting an error--on the English (right) side, "now" (6258) should be עַתָּה rather than אַתָּה when you hover on it.
