Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 19:2

_ _ his concubine ... went away from him unto her father’s house — The cause of the separation assigned in our version rendered it unlawful for her husband to take her back (Deuteronomy 24:4); and according to the uniform style of sentiment and practice in the East, she would have been put to death, had she gone to her father’s family. Other versions concur with Josephus, in representing the reason for the flight from her husband’s house to be, that she was disgusted with him, through frequent brawls.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 19:1-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 19:2

Against him — That is, against her faith given to him. Went away — Either for fear of punishment; or, because her heart was alienated from him; wherein not only she sinned, but her father by connivance at her sin, and neglect of just endeavours for her reconciliation to her husband.
