Part of my READ THE BIBLE WITHIN A YEAR challenge.Wish me luck, as I've got a long way to go!It has been about a month since I read any of the Bible. I’ve found it hard to motivate myself to continue, and Judges reminded me why. This book is so brutal. Judges is full of violence, rape, death, the cutting up of a woman’s body, the gouging out of a man’s eyesshudder! Although I am still enjoying the challenge, I really did find Judges hard going and emotionally draining, due to all of the sh [...]

This is not a light book to read. It is a very dark time in history. Often repeated in the book is "Everyone did as they saw fit." (21:25)It is complete and total moral chaos most of the book. A cycle of sin is repeated over. And over. And over. It goes something like thisThey drift from following God. There are repercussions. (there always are) Their world is in chaos. They repentd cry out to God. He hears their cry. (He always does). He restores. Many chapters you wonder did things get this ba [...]

Murder, rape, torture, betrayal, deceit. I thought God instructed the Israelites not to be wicked.

Judges is the seventh book in the Bible, it was inspired by God. Judges tells the story of the people of Israel after they have moved into the land of Canaan. While they conquered the land they did not remove the people or their other gods and abhorrent customs. Soon the Israelites fall into the customs and worship of their neighbors, forsaking God. God then sends other nations to punish and capture them. They then finally call out to God and he sends a deliverer to them which is followed by a p [...]

The corruption that followed the Israelites worshipping idols was the main theme. I was frustrated with them. I enjoyed the story of Sampson the most.

What wild, wooly times for the children of Israel and their neighbors. I have nothing to add.

With Joshua deceased, the Israelites had no viable successor, so God appointed various judges to lead the burgeoning nation. This book has a cyclical rhythm: god appoints a judge; the Israelites are liberated from their oppressors; the judge passes away; and the Israelites fall back to idolatry and "doing what is right in their own sight." We also encounter the well known stories of Gideon and Samson, which are always much stranger and more complex than I remember. There are standout moments of [...]

I found this work of immense interest and importance.The compilation of historical accounts, wisdom & proverbial insights, and thought provoking texts, along with descriptive and informative footnotes, are of great value.Explanations, including varying scholarly views depicting the material related in this book, are available for each of the 66 individual books of the Bible.This book is but one of the individual 66 books/letters which were written by forty different authors over at least 150 [...]

Read: for cute and wholesome religiously lifted bucket-loads of genocidal shit, cool + hip left-handed assassination (ya dig?), and the occasional intimate daughter sacrifice or two. As cathartic release: witness an ancient-so-who-cares act of suicide terrorism in either literal akin or hyperbole to that of America's 9-11. Some barbaric/Greco level of Yahweh sanctioned brutality, but gosh darn it, great for the kids - eh?P.S. Judges, as in set 300 fox tails, all Human Centipede style (i.e. booty [...]

The reading of God's Word is so remarkable that there is nothing that I can say to make it any better. Please, if you are a lost soul, turn to God! He can heal you and give you the greatest peace that you will ever know!

WrensReads Review:Sidenote: The reason for such vague and short and "eh" words on each of these books, is because I wasn't challenging the study of the Bible when I read these. I was challenging myself to read the whole Bible in a year because I knew it would be discipline to keep at it daily. I do, however, plan to pick up a book and study what it is saying. Those will be longer reads and more notes.So here is my review from my "Read the Bible in a Year" challenge. Usually just snippets of thou [...]

So all the trees said to the bramble; ‘You come and reign over us.’ And the bramble said to the trees, ‘If in good faith you are anointing me king over you, then come take refuge in my shade; but if not, let fire come out of the bramble and devour the cedars of Lebanon.’Now that Joshua’s dead, bereft of centralized leadership, the Hebrew tribes cling to charismatic chieftains to guide them. The book of Judges details the exploits (usually military) of those chieftains, biblically terme [...]

The Book of the Judges who ruled Israel after the death of Joshua. These included:- Gideon who God used with 300 men to deliver the children of Israel out of the hand of the Moabits,- Jepthah who made a vow to God and sacrificed his daughter after defeating his enemies;- and of course Sampson, the strongest man who ever lived with the assistance of the Holy Spirit. He was deceived twice by women. First, by his Philistine wife who revealed the riddle to her people and then Delilah who handed him [...]

This book begins in the style of Joshua, describing how the Israelites exterminate foe after foe - in a painfully dull and repetitive way. Up until chapter 13 Judges is about as boring as a book can be but then comes Simson, one of the very best Jewish fairytales.Simson is in short a superhero (need I say that he is the son of an angel and a barren old woman?). His power is super-strength, his weakness is that he may never cut his hair - or he will lose his strength. I will not spoil the plot, [...]

I love the Bible book of Judges, speak to the times when there was no king in Israel. There were some mighty warriors in this book who were Judges in Israel at the time. This is also the book that gave the account of Sampson the strongest man who ever lived. On two separate occasions Sampson gave into a woman's nagging and tears and told his secrets. The last, Delilah lead to his downfall. Lord please help me not to be a nagging woman. I enjoyed reading this book it was an excellent read. Now on [...]

For me, Judges is the most compelling and also most brutal book of the Bible so far. It's pretty incredible. There's stuff in here that would make Hollywood screenwriters jump up and down in glee and also stuff that would make them cringe and say things like, "Audiences would hate this. There's no way we could show this."That's what makes Judges so great. It's incredibly harsh and violent at times, but to me it's the most human book of the Bible so far. It has little to do with huge epic movemen [...]

WORDS FROM THE BOOK OF JUDGES:In those days Israel had no king; all the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes. Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying, Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them? And the LORD said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand.BLESS THE NAME OF JESUS!

I actually really enjoyed this book. There were so many grrat stories in here. I loved the story about Samson, and the similarity between him and Jesus. Not only did he get betrayed by someone he loved, but he also ripped a building in two as he died. Awesome! I didn't fully understand chapter 19 though. Could someone explain to me?

it's really saddening to see the Israelites keep going back to the false Gods after the end of a Judge rule. Some of the judges has very interesting story, Gideon and Samson.
