    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 2:18

    The Lord was with the judge - God himself was king, and the judge was his representative.

    It repented the Lord - He changed his purpose towards them: he purposed to destroy them because of their sin; they repented and turned to him, and he changed this purpose. The purpose was to destroy them if they did not repent; when they did repent, his not destroying them was quite consistent with his purpose.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 2:18

    It repented the Lord - Rather, "the Lord was moved with compassion," or "was grieved," "because of their groanings." (Compare Judges 21:15.)

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 2:18

    2:18 It repented the Lord - That is, the Lord changed his course and dealings with them, as penitent men use to do; removed his judgments, and returned to them in mercy.
