My Favourite Judge

My favourite biblical judge is probably Ehud. The Israelites did wrong in the eyes of the Lord, so the Lord sent Eglon, the king of Moab to attack Israel. Eglon had been over Israel for eighteen years when the Lord sent Ehud the left-handed Benjamite to deliver them. Ehud went into Eglon’s palace, he told the king that he had a secret message for him, so the king ordered everyone out of the room. Then Ehud took his sword and killed the king, he was so fat that when Ehud plunged the foot and a half long sword into his belly, the fat closed over the hilt of the sword. Israel was free for eighty years.
