    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 3:9

    Raised up - Othniel, the son of Kenaz - This noble Hebrew was of the tribe of Judah, and nephew and son-in-law to Caleb, whose praise stands without abatement in the sacred records. Othniel had already signalized his valor in taking Kirjath-sepher, which appears to have been a very hazardous exploit. By his natural valor, experience in war, and the peculiar influence of the Divine Spirit, he was well qualified to inspire his countrymen with courage, and to lead them successfully against their oppressors.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 3:9

    Othniel was already distinguished in Joshua's lifetime as a brave and successful leader. See Joshua 15:16-17.

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 3:9

    3:9 Cried - That is, prayed fervently for deliverance.
