Yeah, well, pretty much the same thing happens here, except the names, places, and times change.
The children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel ... So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years. Judges 3.12-14But then the Israelites cried out to God again ("Yahweh!, Yahweh!").
But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD 3.15aAnd he raised up another hero for them. This time it was a left-handed guy named Ehud. God sent him to deliver a present to Eglon.
The LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud … a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab. 3.15bEhud’s present to Eglon was a message from God: a knife blade in his belly pushed in so far that "the dirt (feces) came out."
Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh. And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man ... And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. ... And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly: And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out. 3.16-22God has a funny way of communicating, doesn't he?
God's next killing: 10,000 lusty Moabites
