Which perished at Endor…
Aben Ezra and Kimchi understand this of the Midianites; but rather it is to be understood of Jabin and Sisera, and the army under them, who perished at this place, which is mentioned along with Taanach and Megiddo, (Joshua 17:11) , which are the very places where the battle was fought between Jabin and Israel, (Judges 5:19) according to Jerom F9, it was four miles from Mount Tabor to the south, and was a large village in his days, and was near to Nain, the place where Christ raised the widow's son from the dead, (Luke 7:11) (1 Samuel 28:7)
they became as dung for the earth;
being unburied, they lay and rotted on the earth, and became dung for it; see (Jeremiah 8:2) , or were trodden under foot, as dung upon the earth; so the Targum,
``they became as dung trodden to the earth.''
