20  and when Ehud approached him, he was sitting alone in his cool upper chamber. Ehud said, “I have a message for you from Hashem”; whereupon he rose from his seat.

v’-ay-HUD BA ay-LAV v’-hu yo-SHAYV ba-a-li-YAT ha-m’-kay-RAH a-sher LO l’-va-DO va-YO-mer ay-HUD d’-var e-lo-HEEM LEE ay-LE-kha va-YA-kom may-AL ha-ki-SAY

כ  וְאֵהוּד בָּא אֵלָיו וְהוּא־יֹשֵׁב בַּעֲלִיַּת הַמְּקֵרָה אֲשֶׁר־לוֹ לְבַדּוֹ וַיֹּאמֶר אֵהוּד דְּבַר־אֱלֹהִים לִי אֵלֶיךָ וַיָּקָם מֵעַל הַכִּסֵּא׃

3:20   And when Ehud approached him

Ehud tells the Moabite king Eglon that he has a message for him from God. Eglon stands up, and Ehud stabs him, thereby killing the oppressor of the Israelites. Although he delivered no verbal message, Ehud told the truth: Hashem had instructed him to kill Eglon. At its core, God’s message is that ultimately, even if it takes time, He will always save the People of Israel from their oppressors. This true message that Ehud delivered to Eglon remains equally true in our time. Often the enemies of the Jewish people appear strong, and even claim many innocent victims. But God continues to send the message that ultimately, those who oppress His people will always be destroyed. Over time, the Jews’ persecutors all fade away, while the Nation of Israel lives forever.

  • True, and we see today so many coming against Israel, Nations and peoples who speak against the Nation of Israel and it's right to the land. It shames/saddens me that so many 'Christian people do not understand the responsibilty to Israel the present day church has'.
