Wesley's Notes for Judges 12:15


12:15 Mount of the Amalekites - So called from some remarkable exploit, done by, or upon the Amalekites in that place. It is strange, that in the history of all these judges, there is not so much as once mention of the high - priest, or of any other priest or Levite, appearing either for council or action in any public affair, from Phinehas to Eli, which may well be computed two hundred and fifty years! Surely this intimates, that the institution was chiefly intended to be typical, and that the benefits which were promised by it, were to be chiefly looked for in its anti - type, the everlasting priesthood of Christ, in comparison of which that priesthood had no glory.


Discussion for Judges 12

  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus
    Day 69 of Bible Reading in a Year. Excellent history of the period of the judges who "ruled" Israel. It is fascinating how the "land" has and is still so very important even among the gentiles. The identification of people with the land for the Israelites revealed a history (though frequently broken" of trusting God to deliver them from their enemies and their own flesh.

    Have faith in the lord he will never fail us
  • Kaggwa Andrew
    No sin, un repented, may go un punished. Ephraimites despised God's choice in Gideon but God kept their punishment until Jephtha's time! adamantly they contended with these two, God's choices, ever questioning the source of authority for their actions, yet they knew surely that the hand of God was with them. When we vex with the anointed ones, we vex with God and its sin.
  • Michael C.
    How can we apply this part of the Word to ourselves today? 1) Evil words stir up evil behaviors. 2) Going with the crowds in an evil matter, will bring consequences. 3) Jephthah handled the wicked mouths of the Ephraimites; wicked mouths today need to be stopped, and their actions of hostility toward others without a cause, righteously punished. 4) We too have had many champions of God sent to us.
  • Kgomotso marumo
    God is still speaking today
  • AMA
    we do not have to despise people because you never know what tomorrow holds for them. in the case of Jephthah and his brethren.
