Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 8:11

_ _ Gideon went up by the way of them that dwelt in tents on the east — He tracked the fugitives across the mountain range of Gilead to the northeast of the Jabbok, and there came upon them unexpectedly while they were resting secure among their own nomadic tribes. Jogbehah is supposed to be Ramoth-gilead; and, therefore, the Midianites must have found refuge at or near Abela, “Abel-cheramim,” “the plain of the vineyards.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 8:4-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 8:11

That dwelt in tents — That is, of the Arabians, so fetching a compass, and falling upon them where they least expected it. Was secure — Being now got safe over Jordan, and a great way from the place of battle; and probably, supposing Gideon's men to be so tired with their hard service, that they would have neither strength nor will to pursue them so far.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
