Judges 9:10

Judges 9:10

And the trees said to the fig tree
Another useful and fruit bearing tree, and to which also good men are sometimes compared, see ( Song of Solomon 2:13 ) ,

come thou, and reign over us:
which Jarchi applies to Deborah, but may be better applied to one of Gideon's sons, who, though they had not a personal offer of kingly government themselves, yet it was made to them through their father, and refused, as for himself, so for them; and had it been offered to them, they would have rejected it, as Jotham seems to intimate by this parable.
