Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 9:6

_ _ all the men of Shechem ..., and all the house of Millo — that is, a mound or rampart, so that the meaning is, all the men in the house or temple; namely, the priests of Baal.

_ _ made Abimelech king, by the plain of the pillar — rather, “by the oak near a raised mound” — so that the ceremony of coronation might be conspicuous to a crowd.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 9:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 9:6

House of Millo — Some eminent and potent family living in Shechem, or near it. King — Over all Israel, Judges 9:22, which was a strange presumption for the inhabitants of one city; but they had many advantages for it; as the eager, and general, and constant inclination of the Israelites to kingly government; Abimelech's being the son of Gideon, to whom, and to his sons, they offered the kingdom. And though the father could, and did refuse it for himself; yet they might imagine, that he could not give away his sons' right, conveyed to them by the Israelites, in their offer; the universal defection of the Israelites from God to Baal, whose great patron and champion Abimelech pretended to be; the power and prevalency of the tribe of Ephraim, in which Shechem was, whose proud and imperious spirit, would make them readily close with a king of their own brethren; and Abimelech's getting the start of all others, having the crown actually put upon his head, and an army already raised to maintain his tyranny. Of the pillar — Or, by the oak of the pillar, by the oak, where Joshua erected a pillar as a witness of the covenant renewed between God and Israel, Joshua 24:26. This place they chose, to signify that they still owned God, and their covenant with him; and did not worship Baal in opposition to God, but in conjunction with him, or in subordination to him.
