Judges 20:17 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Thus the men of Israel assembled together against Gibeah, united as one man. חברים, lit. as comrades, simply serves to strengthen the expression "as one man." With this remark, which indicates briefly the carrying out of the resolution that was adopted, the account of the meeting of the congregation is brought to a close; but the actual progress of the affair is really anticipated, inasmuch as what is related in Judges 20:12-21 preceded the expedition in order of time.
