Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 12:7

_ _ Jephthah died — After a government of six years, this mighty man of valor died; and however difficult it may be for us to understand some passages in his history, he has been ranked by apostolic authority among the worthies of the ancient church. He was followed by a succession of minor judges, of whom the only memorials preserved relate to the number of their families and their state [Judges 12:8-15].

Matthew Henry's Commentary
