7  And they fled headlong in the twilight, abandoning their tents and horses and asses—the [entire] camp just as it was—as they fled for their lives.

 7:7   And they fled headlong in the twilight

Rabbi Shlomo Goren (1917-1994), Cheif Rabbi of the IDF

The enemies of Israel miraculously flee, abandoning their entire camp. Similarly, there have been times in the State of Israel’s history where the enemy fled before engaging the Israel Defense Forces. A famous example occurred during the Six Day War, when IDF Chief Rabbi Shlomo Goren and his driver single-handedly captured the holy city of Chevron. When they drove into Chevron, mistakenly thinking IDF soldiers were already there, they were greeted with a city full of white flags and empty of soldiers. Hashem’s miracles are always in evidence among the soldiers of Israel.

  • God has been and will always be true to His promises. When He said I will never leave you nor forsake you, we can, as the Israelite, claim that promise. He showed His faithfulness before and will always be faithful till the very end of time. Israel is so blessed to be called the City of the Most High God.
