    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 1:17

    The city was called Hormah - This appears to be the same transaction mentioned Numbers 21:1 (note), etc., where see the notes.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 1:17

    Hormah - See Numbers 21:1 note. The destruction then vowed was now accomplished. This is another decisive indication that the events here related belong to Joshua's lifetime. This would be about six years after the vow.

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 1:17

    1:17 Judah went with Simeon - According to his promise, ver.3, and the laws of justice and gratitude. Hormah - Either, The same place so called, Numb 21:3, and so what was there vowed, is here executed: or, Some other place called by the same name upon the like occasion, which was frequent among the Hebrews. This seems more probable.
