Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Jephthah uttered. That is, upon his elevation, he immediately retired to his devotion, and in prayer spread the whole matter before God, both his choice to the office, and his execution of the office, as one that had his eye ever toward the Lord, and would do nothing without him; that leaned not to his own understanding or courage, but depended on the Almighty God, and his favour. This is an example worthy of universal imitation; in All Our Ways, whether great or apparently subordinate, let us acknowledge God and seek his direction. So shall we make our way prosperous, and obtain that peace which passeth all understanding. Jephthah opened his campaign with prayer.
Mizpeh. This Mizpeh was east of Jordan in the mountains of Gilead.
and hence called Mizpeh
to distinguish it from another place of the same name, west of Jordan, in the tribe of Judah
