Treasury of Scripture

Then came the woman in the dawning of the day, and fell down at the door of the man's house where her lord was, till it was light.

her lord was

Judges 19:3,27
And her husband arose, and went after her, to speak friendly unto her, and to bring her again, having his servant with him, and a couple of asses: and she brought him into her father's house: and when the father of the damsel saw him, he rejoiced to meet him…

Genesis 18:12
Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

1 Peter 3:6
Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.









(26) Then came the woman. . . .--It would be scarcely possible to enhance the depth of pathos and of horror which the sacred writer throws into these simple words. If to the wretched woman punishment had come in the guise of her sin (Wisdom Of Solomon 11:16, "that they might know that wherewithal a man sinneth, by the same also shall he be punished") which had been the prime cause of the whole catastrophe, the Levite was punished both for his condonation of an offence which could not be condoned, and for the unmanly cowardice or heartless self-absorption which could alone have rendered it possible for him to accept personal safety at such a price.

Verse 26. - Till it was light, or, as the words may mean, at daylight.
