Definitions for Judges 8 :13

Clarke's Commentary on Judges 8 :13

Returned from battle before the sun was up - This does not appear to be a proper translation of מלמעלה החרס milmaaleh hechares. It should be rendered from the ascent of Chares: this is the reading of the Septuagint, the Syriac, and the Arabic.

Barnes' Commentary on Judges 8 :13

Before the sun was up - The translation of the words is doubtful, because of the rarity of the word rendered "sun" (חרס cheres). Many suppose it to be the name of a mountain pass, and render it from the ascent of Heres.

Wesley's Commentary on Judges 8 :13
