Judges 8:34 Meaning and Commentary

Judges 8:34

And the children of Israel remembered not the Lord their God,
&c.] Or, as the Targum, the worship of the Lord their God; they forgot him, and forsook him, which showed base ingratitude:

who had delivered them out of the hands of their enemies on every side;
not only out of the hands of Midian, but all other nations round about them, as Edom, Moab, Ammon not one attempting to oppress them.
