For the people were numbered, and, behold, there were none of the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead there.









(9) For the people were numbered.--It is doubtful whether this implies another numbering besides that at Mizpeh (Judges 20:1-17). In the tale which had then been made up, the absence of inhabitants of a single town might for the present escape notice. It would be sufficient now merely to refer to the lists then made (Judges 20:1-17).
