EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)And in those times.—The “many days” cf. 2Chronicles 15:3; the times of national unfaithfulness.
But great vexations.—For great confusions (mehûmôth). (See Deuteronomy 28:20, where mehûmah, “confusion” or “discomfiture,” is foretold as a punishment of apostacy. Here the meaning seems to be tumults, as in Amos 3:9. “The countries” are the territories or provinces of Israel, as in 2Chronicles 34:33.2 Chronicles 15:5. In those times — When Israel lived in the gross neglect of God and his law; there was no peace to him that went out, &c. — Men could not go abroad about their private business without great danger; as it was in the days of Shamgar, the events of which time are a good comment on this text, Jdg 5:6. Great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries — Hebrew, Of these countries: that is, the various parts of the land of Israel, both within and without Jordan.In those times; when Israel lived in the gross neglect and contempt of God, and his law and worship.
No peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in; men could not go abroad about their private occasions without great danger; as it was in the days of Shamgar, Judges 5:6, which is a good comment upon this text.
