    VERSE (24) -
    1Sa 24:3

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:24

    Y salido él, vinieron sus siervos, los cuales viendo las puertas de la sala cerradas, dijeron: Por ventura él cubre sus pies en la sala de verano.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 3:24

    Verse 24. He covereth his
    feet] He has lain down on his sofa in order to sleep; when this was done they dropped their slippers, lifted up their feet, and covered them with their long loose garments. But the versions, in general, seem to understand it as implying a certain natural act.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. When he was gone out, his
    servants came , etc.] When Ehud was gone through the porch, and out of the palace, the servants of Eglon, who had been put out, came to the parlour door to reassume their former place, and finish their business with the king, or in order to wait upon him as usual: and when they saw that behold the doors of the parlour [were] locked ; which they supposed were done by the king himself with inside, having no suspicion of Ehud: they said, surely , or “perhaps”, as Noldius renders it, he covereth his feet in his summer chamber ; that is, was easing nature; and, as the eastern people wore long and loose garments, when they sat down on such an occasion, their feet were covered with them; or they purposely gathered them about their feet to cover them, and so this became a modest expression for this work of nature, (see 1 Samuel 24:3); though some think that in that place, and also in this, is meant lying down to sleep; and that Eglon’s servants supposed that he had laid himself down on his couch in his summer chamber to take sleep, when it was usual to cover the feet with long garments, to hide those parts of nature which otherwise might be exposed; and it must be owned that this seems more agreeable to a summer parlour than the former, and better accounts for the servants waiting so long as they did; and Josephus is express for it, that his servants thought he had fallen asleep. Indeed, the Jews in later times used the phrase in the first sense f66 , which seems to be taken from hence.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-30 - When
    Israel sins again, God raises up a new oppressor. The Israelite did ill, and the Moabites did worse; yet because God punishes the sin of his own people in this world, Israel is weakened, and Moa strengthened against them. If lesser troubles do not do the work, God will send greater. When Israel prays again, God raises up Ehud. As judge, or minister of Divine justice, Ehud put to death Eglon, the kin of Moab, and thus executed the judgments of God upon him as an enemy to God and Israel. But the law of being subject to principalities an powers in all things lawful, is the rule of our conduct. No suc commissions are now given; to pretend to them is to blaspheme God Notice Ehud's address to Eglon. What message from God but a message of vengeance can a proud rebel expect? Such a message is contained in the word of God; his ministers are boldly to declare it, without fearin the frown, or respecting the persons of sinners. But, blessed be God they have to deliver a message of mercy and of free salvation; the message of vengeance belongs only to those who neglect the offers of grace. The consequence of this victory was, that the land had res eighty years. It was a great while for the land to rest; yet what is that to the saints' everlasting rest in the heavenly Canaan.
