Wesley's Notes for Judges 2:1


2:1 The angel - Christ the angel of the covenant, often called the angel of the Lord, to whom the conduct of Israel out of Egypt into Canaan, is frequently ascribed. He alone could speak the following words in his own name and person; whereas created angels and prophets universally usher in their message with, Thus saith the Lord, or some equivalent expression. And this angel having assumed the shape of a man, it is not strange that he imitates the motion of a man, and comes as it were from Gilgal to the place where now they were: by which motion he signified, that he was the person that brought them to Gilgal, the first place where they rested in Canaan, and there protected them so long, and from thence went with them to battle, and gave them success. Bochim - A place so called by anticipation; it seems to be no other than Shiloh, where it is probable, the people were met together upon some solemn festival. I said - That is, I promised upon condition of your keeping covenant with me.


Discussion for Judges 2

  • MOSES
    Dear friends in the LORD a lot can be driven out this portion of scripture however my emphasis is verse 21, GOD let a few tribes during the time of Joshua his servant not as a sign of defeat to him but for the young ISRAELITES to drive out as a task if they really understood their God but instead this guys just copied the evil their subjects were doing this caused them get a curse for a blessing lets check our lives what is that which was left in your life may be family which must be removed? or else you may miss your blessing.

    We are not here to judge but to be judged, we truly need to concentrate on self and not others, but to love one another and always ask God to allow the holy spirit to lead and guide us and help us with our thoughts and the words we say,that it is pleasing in his sight. Clean us from the inside out

    I have always liked reading the book Judges, but this book , since I 've started reading it is spellbounding. Needing to read more. Discuss later.
  • Thon Agoth
    We need to ask God to forgive us and to grant His mercy to the current world generation. We have all sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. We need to tear our hearts and come before Him. Our Jehovah is a merciful God

    WOW! WOW! WOOW! Jesus! My Pastor says that there is nothing new under the sun. This has showed me that we are living in the days of Joshua and after his death because we do this, as Marie said on 10 10 213, time after time. Lord, said that everybody isn 't going to make it be with Him in eternity. I want to go with Him when he comes. Never lose sight God. He will always be there for you or suffer the consequences.
