The elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, “That being so, we have returned to you now so that you will go with us and fight against the children of Ammon, and you will become our head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.” Bible

“That being so.” In other words, “We agree we did that, so now we ourselves have come to get you and make you commander.”

“head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.” This is more than a military leadership position, but a permanent position in the leadership of the people.


Commentary for: Judges 11:8
