(28) Hearkened not.--We are not told of any counter-arguments. Probably the king of Ammon cared only for the argument of the sword--

"The good old rule

Contented him, the simple plan

That they should get who have the power,

And they should keep who can."

11:12-28 One instance of the honour and respect we owe to God, as our God, is, rightly to employ what he gives us to possess. Receive it from him, use it for him, and part with it when he calls for it. The whole of this message shows that Jephthah was well acquainted with the books of Moses. His argument was clear, and his demand reasonable. Those who possess the most courageous faith, will be the most disposed for peace, and the readiest to make advances to obtain; but rapacity and ambition often cloak their designs under a plea of equity, and render peaceful endeavours of no avail.
