Judges 12:14

And he had forty sons and thirty nephews, that rode on threescore and ten ass colts: and he judged Israel eight years.

And he had forty sons, and thirty nephews,.... Or sons' sons, that is, grandsons; so that he lived not only to see his sons married, but his grandchildren grown up to men's estate; since it follows,

that rode on seventy ass colts; who were either employed by him to ride about on these animals, which in those times were honourable; see Judges 5:10 to administer justice throughout the nation in their circuits; or rather, not following any trade, or being concerned in husbandry, or feeding cattle, but being men of estates, rode about like gentlemen:

and he judged Israel eight years; in his time it is said {b} the city of Troy was destroyed; so Eusebius {c}, who calls this judge Labdon, though he elsewhere {d} places it in the times of Eli;

See Gill on "Judges 12:9".
