The story of his life is of God taking a strong and by His Spirit turning him into a usable Whatever our strengths and weaknesses, the secret of our usefulness is our availability to our God. Note that there was not just one battle involved here but entire military campaign which proved victorious over twenty cities. Why? Because the LORD gave them into his hand. They still had to engage the warfare but the victory was from the Lord You can it down God's sovereignty does not release us from personal responsibility! A R Fausset Barber comments that Fausset's work is of immeasurable value. Remains one of the finest treatments extant. A must for the expositor. Jephthah passed over unto the children of Ammon to fight against them; and the LORD delivered them into his hands. Carr Judges JEPHTHAH'S VICTORY A. Judges 11 It Was A Divine The battle was waged and the victory was won. The children of Ammon were defeated because the Lord delivered them up to the Israelites. It was a divine victory and God was given all the B. Judges 11 It Was A Decisive The language of this verse tells us how complete this victory was. We are told that Jephthah smote the Ammonites. This word means to strike, smite, hit, beat, slay, kill. We are told that Jephthah smote them with a great slaughter. This phrase refers to a great blow, wound, beating, or conquest.

To this we answer, that the public interest of the whole Jewish people was more regarded the bestowment of the victory, than the private hopes or wishes of Jephthah. Unworthy or faulty instruments were often employed by the Most High effecting his kind purposes for and we no reason to doubt that the result would have been the same with the same means, even had no vow whatever been uttered.
