    There was no deliverer - They had no succor, because the Sidonians, from whom they might have expected it, were at too great a distance.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 18:28

    Rehob (as Dan afterward) is mentioned as the northernmost point of the land of Canaan Numbers 13:21, and its position is defined with reference to the entering in of Hamath.

    A city - Rather, "the" city. They rebuilt Laish, which they had burned down Judges 18:29.
