Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 20:4-7

_ _ the Levite, the husband of the woman that was slain, answered and said — The injured husband gave a brief and unvarnished recital of the tragic outrage, from which it appears that force was used, which he could not resist. His testimony was doubtless corroborated by those of his servant and the old Ephraimite. There was no need of strong or highly colored description to work upon the feelings of the audience. The facts spoke for themselves and produced one common sentiment of detestation and vengeance.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 20:1-11.
