    18- Casting lots is a method to settle things, such as today we can draw straws. Even Kings (might men) in those days used it. 19- An offend brother is harder to reach (break thru to like defenses of a city) because they put up a defense around them like bars.

    It sounds like an offence could be big enough to build walls between brothers. Once this happens the restoration is not easy but could perhaps be possible with the Lord's help. I believe to break downs walls may require authentic repentance and seeking forgiveness. Restitution may be a necessary step. Deep soul searching and genuine desire to be a godly person may be required.

    I feel it means speak up. When god speaks within in US.. we must then speak out. Example being knowing right from wrong and not only choosing right for yourself, but also guiding others to do right as well, whereas they might not if you don 't use the power of the tongue.
