as one man

Judges 20:1,11

Ecclesiastes 9:10

(8) Arose as one man.--The same words are rendered "with one consent" in 1Samuel 11:7.

To his tent . . . . into his house.--Possibly many of the Trans-jordanic Israelites, who were chiefly graziers, were obliged by the necessities of nomadic life to live in tents, not in villages or cities.

Verse 8. - The people - with the emphatic meaning of the whole people of Israel, the assembly of the people of God, as in ver. 2. As one man. There was but one resolve, and one sentiment, and one expression of opinion, in that vast multitude. Not one would go home till due punishment had been inflicted upon Gibeah of Benjamin. To his tent, i.e. home, as in Judges 19:9.
