Judges 20:45 New English Translation (NET Bible)

45 The rest[a] turned and ran toward the wilderness, heading toward the cliff of Rimmon. But the Israelites[b] caught[c] 5,000 of them on the main roads. They stayed right on their heels[d] all the way to Gidom and struck down 2,000 more.


  1. Judges 20:45 tn Heb “they”; the referent (the rest [of the Benjaminites]) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
  2. Judges 20:45 tn Heb “and they”; the referent (the Israelites) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
  3. Judges 20:45 tn Heb “gleaned.” The word is an agricultural term which pictures Israelites picking off the Benjaminites as easily as one picks grapes from the vine.
