Judges 20:14 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Deliver us the men - Nothing could be fairer than this. They wish only to make the murderers answerable for their guilt.

By not delivering up those bad men, they in effect said: "We will stand by them in what they have done, and would have acted the same part had we been present." This proves that the whole tribe was excessively depraved.
