Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 19:3-4

_ _ And her husband arose, and went after her, to speak friendly unto herHebrew, “speak to her heart,” in a kindly and affectionate manner, so as to rekindle her affection. Accompanied by a servant, he arrived at the house of his father-in-law, who rejoiced to meet him, in the hope that a complete reconciliation would be brought about between his daughter and her husband. The Levite, yielding to the hospitable importunities of his father-in-law, prolonged his stay for days.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 19:1-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
