CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
19:12 A stranger - That is, of a strange nation: which the Canaanites possess; for though the city Jerusalem had been taken by Caleb, chap.1:8, yet the strong fort of Zion was still in their hands, whence it is likely they did much molest, and afterwards by God's permission, drive out the Israelites who dwelt there.
It was late in the day when they neared Jebus, and the man's servant said to him, "Let's stop at this Jebusite town and spend the night there."
Come on, let's try to get as far as Gibeah or Ramah, and we'll spend the night in one of those towns."
The things my people do are as depraved as what they did in Gibeah long ago. God will not forget. He will surely punish them for their sins.
