Unto his master.--Literally, to his lord, a mere form of respect, as in Genesis 39:2.

This city of the Jebusites.--Their complete and undisturbed possession shows that this narrative falls at an early date (Judges 1:7-8; Judges 1:11; Judges 1:21; Joshua 15:63). The travellers would reach the town from Bethlehem at about five o'clock. . . .
