    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 11:33

    Twenty cities - That is, he either took or destroyed twenty cities of the Ammonites, and completely routed their whole army.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 11:33

    As in the conflicts with the Moabites, Canaanites, and Midianites Judges 3; 4; 7, the battle was on Israelite territory, in self-defense, not in aggressive warfare.

    The plain of the vineyards - Rather, "Abel-Ceramim" (compare Abel-Meholah), identified with an "Abel" situated among vineyards, 7 miles from Robbah. "Minnith" is "Maanith," 4 miles from Heshbon, on the road to Rab-bah.
