Discussion for Judges 20:16

    From my observations in reading the Bible over many years, left or left handed is almost always used to describe someone or something that is at odds with the LORD recall the separation of the sheep and the goats . I am a month shy of 67yrs old there was a time when parents would force their left handed children into using their right hand!I know it 's hard to picture a time when parents actually read the Bible and believed it but they did!! I hope this helps you and perhaps others as well. GOD Bless you always.
