SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:19 y vosotros no os paréis, sino seguid a vuestros enemigos, y heridles la retaguardia, sin dejarles entrar en sus ciudades; porque el SEÑOR vuestro Dios los ha entregado en vuestra mano.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 19. And stay you not, [but] pursue after your enemies , etc.] That is, do not stay at this cave, but having placed a sufficient guard there, go in pursuit of the enemy, with as much celerity as possible: and smite the hindmost of them ; their rear; or “tail” them f197 , as the word is, cut off the tail of them: suffer them not to enter their cities ; where they would not only be safe themselves for a while, but would be able to hold out against a siege for some time, and give much trouble to conquer them: for the Lord your God hath delivered them into your hands ; this he said to encourage them, and quicken them to the pursuit of them with all eagerness and vehemence. According to the Samaritan Chronicle f198 , the signal or watchword was, “God is strong in battle, God is his name.”
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-27 - None moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel. This show their perfect safety. The kings were called to an account, as rebel against the Israel of God. Refuges of lies will but secure for God' judgment. God punished the abominable wickedness of these kings, the measure of whose iniquity was now full. And by this public act of justice, done upon these ringleaders of the Canaanites in sin, he woul possess his people with the greater dread and detestation of the sin of the nations that God cast out from before them. Here is a type an figure of Christ's victories over the powers of darkness, and of believers' victories through him. In our spiritual conflicts we mus not be satisfied with obtaining some important victory. We must pursu our scattered enemies, searching out the remains of sin as they rise u in our hearts, and thus pursue the conquest. In so doing, the Lord wil afford light until the warfare be accomplished.
