_ _ they went down after him, and took the fords — (See on Joshua 2:7). With the view of preventing all escape to the Moabite coast, and by the slaughter of ten thousand men [Judges 3:29], Ehud rescued his country from a state of ignominious vassalage.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 3:12-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
