Journal Through the Bible: Week 36 Tuesday

Judges chapter 19

This must be one of the most revolting chapters in all of Scripture! There is little that one can say except what the Bible itself says about it:
And it was so, that all that saw it said, There was no such deed done nor seen from the day that the children of Israel came up out of the land of Egypt unto this day: consider of it, take advice, and speak your minds.   Judges 19:30
The events related in this chapter took place in Gibeah, the village of Saul's birth. This chapter tells of behind the scenes events that affected his ancestors.

Does God issue any commands in this chapter?

  • God does not speak.

Does God make any promises?

  • God does not speak.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • In a way, the old man who gave lodging to the Levite and his entourage was a type of Christ when he took them in and provided all of their necessities. He also attempted to keep them separated from the wickedness around them. 

Does this chapter 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.
