    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 18:21

    The little ones and the cattle, etc. - These men were so confident of success that they removed their whole families, household goods, cattle, and all.

    And the carriage - כבודה kebudah, their substance, precious things, or valuables; omne quod erat pretiosum, Vulgate: or rather the luggage or baggage; what Caesar calls in his commentaries impedimenta; and what the Septuagint here translate βαρος, weight or baggage. We are not to suppose that any wheel carriage is meant.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 18:21

    And put the little ones, etc., before them - They expected a pursuit from Micah's people, and arranged their order of march accordingly.

    The carriage - Rather, "the valuables." Some interpret it "the heavy baggage."

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 18:21

    18:21 Before them - For their greater security, if Micah should pursue them.
