    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 2:19

    When the judge was dead - It appears that in general the office of the judge was for life.

    Their stubborn way - Their hard or difficult way. Most sinners go through great tribulation, in order to get to eternal perdition; they would have had less pain in their way to heaven.

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 2:19

    2:19 Returned - To their former, and usual course. Their fathers - In Egypt, or in the wilderness. Their own doings - That is, from their evil practices, which he calls their own, because they were agreeable to their own natures, which in all mankind are deeply and universally corrupted, and because they were familiar and customary to them.
