Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 3:19

_ _ quarries — rather, “graven images” (Deuteronomy 7:25; Jeremiah 8:19; Jeremiah 51:52); statues of Moabite idols, the sight of which kindled the patriotic zeal of Ehud to avenge this public insult to Israel on its author.

_ _ I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence — “Privacy” — a signal for all to withdraw.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 3:12-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 3:19

Turned again — As if he had forgot some important business. Keep silence — 'Till my servants be gone: whom he would not have acquainted with a business which he supposed to be of great importance.
