And the men of Gibeah rose against me and surrounded the house against me at night. They intended to kill me, and they abused my concubine so that she died. Bible see other translations

“the men of Gibeah.” The word for “men” is “baal,” and so it could be “leaders, lords, notables, landowners,” or it could just refer to men, which is most likely the case here.

“abused.” See commentary on Judges 19:24.
