Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 21:19

_ _ on the east side of the highway that goeth up from Beth-el to Shechem — The exact site of the place was described evidently for the direction of the Benjamites.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 21:16-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 21:19

A feast — Probably it was the feast of tabernacles, which they celebrated with more than ordinary joy. And that feast was the only season, at which the Jewish virgins were allowed to dance. But even this was not mixed dancing. No men danced with these daughters of Shiloh. Nor did the married women so forget their gravity, as to join with them. However their dancing thus in public, made them an easy prey: whence Bishop Hall observes, "The ambushes of evil spirits carry away many souls from dancing to a fearful desolation."

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Then they said, Behold, [there is] a feast of the LORD in Shiloh yearly [in a place] which [is] on the (h) north side of Bethel, on the east side of the highway that goeth up from Bethel to Shechem, and on the south of Lebonah.

(h) He describes the place where the maids used to dance yearly, and sing psalms and songs of God's works among them, as the custom was then.
