Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 12:2

_ _ when I called you, ye delivered me not out of their hands — The straightforward answer of Jephthah shows that their charge was false; their complaint of not being treated as confederates and allies entirely without foundation; and their boast of a ready contribution of their services came with an ill grace from people who had purposely delayed appearing till the crisis was past.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 12:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 12:2

When I called — Hence it appears, that he had craved their assistance, which they had denied; though that be not elsewhere expressed.
