SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:1 ¬∂ Y se fue Abimelec hijo de Jerobaal a Siquem, a los hermanos de su madre, y hablů con ellos, y con toda la familia de la casa del padre de su madre, diciendo:
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 9:1 Verse 1. Abimelech-went to Shechem] We have already seen that Abimelech was the son of Gideon, by his concubine at Shechem. His going thither immediately after his father's death was to induce his townsmen to proclaim him governor in the place of his father. Shechem was the residence of his mother, and of all her relatives.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And Abimelech the son of Jerubbaal went to Shechem, unto his motherís brethren , etc.] It seems that though the mother of Abimelech lived at Shechem, he was taken and brought up in his fatherís house at Ophrah, where he was when he died; and from hence he came to Shechem, to pay a visit to his uncles there; whether his mother was now living, is not certain: and communed with them ; about the death of his father, the state of his family, and the government of Israel: and with all the family of the house of his motherís father ; that descended from his grandfather, the several branches of them, and of the family, the heads of them at least: saying , as follows.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-6 - The men of Shechem chose Abimelech king. God was not consulted whethe they should have any king, much less who it should be. If parents coul see what their children would do, and what they are to suffer, their joy in them often would be turned into sorrow: we may be thankful tha we cannot know what shall happen. Above all, we should fear and watc against sin; for our evil conduct may produce fatal effects upon ou families, after we are in our graves.
