CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
20:9 Make captains - Or rather, as the Hebrew hath it, they shall set or place the captains of the armies in the head or front of the people under their charge, that they may conduct them, and by their example encourage their soldiers. It is not likely they had their captains to make when they were just going to battle.
"Then the officers will also say, 'Is anyone here afraid or worried? If you are, you may go home before you frighten anyone else.'
"As you approach a town to attack it, you must first offer its people terms for peace.
