SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:11 Y reposó la tierra cuarenta años; y murió Otoniel, hijo de Cenaz.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And the land had rest forty years , etc.] As it should seem from the time of this deliverance; though, according to Ben Gersom and Abarbinel, the eight years’ servitude are to be included in them; and Bishop Usher reckons these forty years from the rest first settled in the land by Joshua; but the former sense seems best: and Othniel the son of Kenaz died : not at the end of the forty years; it is not likely he should live so long, but when he died is not certain; Eusebius says he judged Israel fifty years.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-11 - The first judge was Othniel: even in Joshua's time Othniel began to be famous. Soon after Israel's settlement in Canaan their purity began to be corrupted, and their peace disturbed. But affliction makes those cr to God who before would scarcely speak to him. God returned in mercy to them for their deliverance. The Spirit of the Lord came upon Othniel The Spirit of wisdom and courage to qualify him for the service, an the Spirit of power to excite him to it. He first judged Israel reproved and reformed them, and then went to war. Let sin at home be conquered, that worst of enemies, then enemies abroad will be mor easily dealt with. Thus let Christ be our Judge and Lawgiver, then he will save us.
