Discussion for Judges 12

  • David
    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.
  • Sara Addy
    we cannot depend on people they will let us down our sufficiency needs to be of God He never lets us down.
