Judges Chapter 21 Summary

Chapter 21 of Judges begins with the children of Israel remembering a vow the made not to give their daughters to the men of Benjamin to wife. This is sad because we’re ending the book of Judges, since this is the last chapter.

Let’s continue…

The reason this was an issue is because the house of Benjamin loss a lot of men and risked being extinct as a tribe if the men couldn’t find wives.

To fix this dilemma, the children of Israel set out to destroy any city that did not send people to come battle with them against the children of Benjamin. Israel was upset with the villages who did not send people to fight in this war.

They went and destroyed the towns where people did not send people up to battle against the evil of the tribe of Benjamin. Israel had vowed not to give their daughters to Benjamin, so they killed the families of the people who did not come up, and took their virgin daughters for the men of Benjamin to wife.

Sounds like evil on top of evil.

They were able to gather 400 women. There are still 200 men left of Benjamin who have no wife. To help the 200 men of Benjamin, they went up to Shiloh and kidnapped 200 virgin daughters and gave them to the Benjamite men remaining who had no wife.

The chapter ends with the quote saying, “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes. This ends the chapter and the book of Judges.

We pray the Father to add blessings to the reading and doing of His Holy Word through His Son Jesus the Messiah. Amen!
