Journal Through the Bible: Week 34 Saturday

Judges 9:7-57

Shechem: the city with quite a history! It was here that Abraham encamped. Here that Jacob's daughter, Dinah, was humbled. Here where Joseph's bones were buried. Here that God established a city of refuge. Here that Joshua addressed the people prior to his death. And here that the inhabitants took the basest son of Gideon, Abimelech, and made him a ruler. His brother, Jotham, described him as the bramble that ruled over the trees of the orchard and garden.

It took a woman armed with a piece of millstone to kill him.

Does God issue any commands in this passage?

  • God does not speak in this passage.

Does God make any promises?

  • God rendered the curse of Gideon's son, Jotham, upon them which led to the destruction of both Abimelech and the people of Shechem.

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • Not that I identified.

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Not that I identified.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
