Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 5:28-30

_ _ In these verses a sudden transition is made to the mother of the Canaanite general, and a striking picture is drawn of a mind agitated between hope and fear — impatient of delay, yet anticipating the news of victory and the rewards of rich booty.

_ _ the lattice — a lattice window, common to the houses in warm countries for the circulation of air.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 5:24-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 5:28

Looked out — Expecting to see him returning: for she concluded, that he went forth not so much to fight, as to take the spoil.
