    Jephthah the Gileadite was a valiant warrior, but he was the son of a prostitute, and Gilead was his father.Gilead’s wife bore him sons, and when they grew up, they drove Jephthah out and said to him,“ You will have no inheritance in our father’s family, because you are the son of another woman.”So Jephthah fled from his brothers and lived in the land of Tob. Then some worthless men joined Jephthah and went on raids with him.Some time later, the Ammonites fought against Israel.When the Ammonites made war with Israel, the elders of Gilead went to get Jephthah from the land of Tob.They said to him,“ Come, be our commander, and let’s fight the Ammonites.”Jephthah replied to the elders of Gilead,“ Didn’t you hate me and drive me out of my father’s family? Why then have you come to me now when you’re in trouble?”They answered Jephthah,“ That’s true. But now we turn to you. Come with us, fight the Ammonites, and you will become leader of all the inhabitants of Gilead.”So Jephthah said to them,“ If you are bringing me back to fight the Ammonites and the LORD gives them to me, I will be your leader.”The elders of Gilead said to Jephthah,“ The LORD is our witness if we don’t do as you say.”So Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead. The people made him their leader and commander, and Jephthah repeated all his terms in the presence of the LORD at Mizpah.Jephthah sent messengers to the king of the Ammonites, asking,“ What do you have against me that you have come to fight me in my land?”
  • Judges 13:1-16
    The Israelites again did what was evil in the LORD’s sight, so the LORD handed them over to the Philistines forty years.There was a certain man from Zorah, from the family of Dan, whose name was Manoah; his wife was unable to conceive and had no children.The angel of the LORD appeared to the woman and said to her,“ Although you are unable to conceive and have no children, you will conceive and give birth to a son.Now please be careful not to drink wine or beer, or to eat anything unclean;for indeed, you will conceive and give birth to a son. You must never cut his hair, because the boy will be a Nazirite to God from birth, and he will begin to save Israel from the power of the Philistines.”Then the woman went and told her husband,“ A man of God came to me. He looked like the awe-inspiring angel of God. I didn’t ask him where he came from, and he didn’t tell me his name.He said to me,‘ You will conceive and give birth to a son. Therefore, do not drink wine or beer, and do not eat anything unclean, because the boy will be a Nazirite to God from birth until the day of his death.’”Manoah prayed to the LORD and said,“ Please, Lord, let the man of God you sent come again to us and teach us what we should do for the boy who will be born.”God listened to Manoah, and the angel of God came again to the woman. She was sitting in the field, and her husband, Manoah, was not with her.The woman ran quickly to her husband and told him,“ The man who came to me the other day has just come back!”So Manoah got up and followed his wife. When he came to the man, he asked,“ Are you the man who spoke to my wife?”“ I am,” he said.Then Manoah asked,“ When your words come true, what will be the boy’s responsibilities and work?”The angel of the LORD answered Manoah,“ Your wife needs to do everything I told her.She must not eat anything that comes from the grapevine or drink wine or beer. And she must not eat anything unclean. Your wife must do everything I have commanded her.”“ Please stay here,” Manoah told him,“ and we will prepare a young goat for you.”The angel of the LORD said to him,“ If I stay, I won’t eat your food. But if you want to prepare a burnt offering, offer it to the LORD.”( Manoah did not know he was the angel of the LORD.)
  • 1 Peter 1 10-1 Peter 1 12
    Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who prophesied about the grace that would come to you, searched and carefully investigated.They inquired into what time or what circumstances the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating when he testified in advance to the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you. These things have now been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven— angels long to catch a glimpse of these things.

    The boy Samuel served the LORD in Eli’s presence. In those days the word of the LORD was rare and prophetic visions were not widespread.One day Eli, whose eyesight was failing, was lying in his usual place.Before the lamp of God had gone out, Samuel was lying down in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was located.Then the LORD called Samuel, and he answered,“ Here I am.”He ran to Eli and said,“ Here I am; you called me.”“ I didn’t call,” Eli replied.“ Go back and lie down.” So he went and lay down.Once again the LORD called,“ Samuel!” Samuel got up, went to Eli, and said,“ Here I am; you called me.”“ I didn’t call, my son,” he replied.“ Go back and lie down.”Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, because the word of the LORD had not yet been revealed to him.Once again, for the third time, the LORD called Samuel. He got up, went to Eli, and said,“ Here I am; you called me.” Then Eli understood that the LORD was calling the boy.He told Samuel,“ Go and lie down. If he calls you, say,‘ Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.The LORD came, stood there, and called as before,“ Samuel, Samuel!” Samuel responded,“ Speak, for your servant is listening.”The LORD said to Samuel,“ I am about to do something in Israel that will cause everyone who hears about it to shudder.On that day I will carry out against Eli everything I said about his family, from beginning to end.

  • Acts 13:22-36
    After removing him, he raised up David as their king and testified about him,‘ I have found David the son of Jesse to be a man after my own heart, who will carry out all my will.’“ From this man’s descendants, as he promised, God brought to Israel the Savior, Jesus.Before his coming to public attention, John had previously proclaimed a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.Now as John was completing his mission, he said,‘ Who do you think I am? I am not the one. But one is coming after me, and I am not worthy to untie the sandals on his feet.’“ Brothers and sisters, children of Abraham’s race, and those among you who fear God, it is to us that the word of this salvation has been sent.Since the residents of Jerusalem and their rulers did not recognize him or the sayings of the prophets that are read every Sabbath, they have fulfilled their words by condemning him.Though they found no grounds for the death sentence, they asked Pilate to have him killed.When they had carried out all that had been written about him, they took him down from the tree and put him in a tomb.But God raised him from the dead,and he appeared for many days to those who came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are now his witnesses to the people.And we ourselves proclaim to you the good news of the promise that was made to our ancestors.God has fulfilled this for us, their children, by raising up Jesus, as it is written in the second Psalm: You are my Son; today I have become your Father.As to his raising him from the dead, never to return to decay, he has spoken in this way, I will give you the holy and sure promises of David.Therefore he also says in another passage, You will not let your Holy One see decay.For David, after serving God’s purpose in his own generation, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and decayed,
  • 1 Samuel 17 1-1 Samuel 17 18
    The Philistines gathered their forces for war at Socoh in Judah and camped between Socoh and Azekah in Ephes-dammim.Saul and the men of Israel gathered and camped in the Valley of Elah; then they lined up in battle formation to face the Philistines.The Philistines were standing on one hill, and the Israelites were standing on another hill with a ravine between them.Then a champion named Goliath, from Gath, came out from the Philistine camp. He was nine feet, nine inches talland wore a bronze helmet and bronze scale armor that weighed one hundred twenty-five pounds.There was bronze armor on his shins, and a bronze javelin was slung between his shoulders.His spear shaft was like a weaver’s beam, and the iron point of his spear weighed fifteen pounds. In addition, a shield-bearer was walking in front of him.He stood and shouted to the Israelite battle formations,“ Why do you come out to line up in battle formation?” He asked them,“ Am I not a Philistine and are you not servants of Saul? Choose one of your men and have him come down against me.If he wins in a fight against me and kills me, we will be your servants. But if I win against him and kill him, then you will be our servants and serve us.”Then the Philistine said,“ I defy the ranks of Israel today. Send me a man so we can fight each other!”When Saul and all Israel heard these words from the Philistine, they lost their courage and were terrified.Now David was the son of the Ephrathite from Bethlehem of Judah named Jesse. Jesse had eight sons and during Saul’s reign was already an old man.Jesse’s three oldest sons had followed Saul to the war, and their names were Eliab, the firstborn, Abinadab, the next, and Shammah, the third,and David was the youngest. The three oldest had followed Saul,but David kept going back and forth from Saul to tend his father’s flock in Bethlehem.Every morning and evening for forty days the Philistine came forward and took his stand.One day Jesse had told his son David,“ Take this half-bushel of roasted grain along with these ten loaves of bread for your brothers and hurry to their camp.Also take these ten portions of cheese to the field commander. Check on the well-being of your brothers and bring a confirmation from them.

  • Judges 4:1-6:8
    The Israelites again did what was evil in the sight of the LORD after Ehud had died.So the LORD sold them to King Jabin of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor. The commander of his army was Sisera who lived in Harosheth of the Nations.Then the Israelites cried out to the LORD, because Jabin had nine hundred iron chariots, and he harshly oppressed them twenty years.Deborah, a prophetess and the wife of Lappidoth, was judging Israel at that time.She would sit under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the hill country of Ephraim, and the Israelites went up to her to settle disputes.She summoned Barak son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali and said to him,“ Hasn’t the LORD, the God of Israel, commanded you,‘ Go, deploy the troops on Mount Tabor, and take with you ten thousand men from the Naphtalites and Zebulunites?Then I will lure Sisera commander of Jabin’s army, his chariots, and his infantry at the Wadi Kishon to fight against you, and I will hand him over to you.’”Barak said to her,“ If you will go with me, I will go. But if you will not go with me, I will not go.”“ I will gladly go with you,” she said,“ but you will receive no honor on the road you are about to take, because the LORD will sell Sisera to a woman.” So Deborah got up and went with Barak to Kedesh.Barak summoned Zebulun and Naphtali to Kedesh; ten thousand men followed him, and Deborah also went with him.Now Heber the Kenite had moved away from the Kenites, the sons of Hobab, Moses’s father-in-law, and pitched his tent beside the oak tree of Zaanannim, which was near Kedesh.It was reported to Sisera that Barak son of Abinoam had gone up Mount Tabor.Sisera summoned all his nine hundred iron chariots and all the troops who were with him from Harosheth of the Nations to the Wadi Kishon.Then Deborah said to Barak,“ Go! This is the day the LORD has handed Sisera over to you. Hasn’t the LORD gone before you?” So Barak came down from Mount Tabor with ten thousand men following him.The LORD threw Sisera, all his charioteers, and all his army into a panic before Barak’s assault. Sisera left his chariot and fled on foot.Barak pursued the chariots and the army as far as Harosheth of the Nations, and the whole army of Sisera fell by the sword; not a single man was left.Meanwhile, Sisera had fled on foot to the tent of Jael, the wife of Heber the Kenite, because there was peace between King Jabin of Hazor and the family of Heber the Kenite.Jael went out to greet Sisera and said to him,“ Come in, my lord. Come in with me. Don’t be afraid.” So he went into her tent, and she covered him with a blanket.He said to her,“ Please give me a little water to drink for I am thirsty.” She opened a container of milk, gave him a drink, and covered him again.Then he said to her,“ Stand at the entrance to the tent. If a man comes and asks you,‘ Is there a man here?’ say,‘ No.’”While he was sleeping from exhaustion, Heber’s wife, Jael, took a tent peg, grabbed a hammer, and went silently to Sisera. She hammered the peg into his temple and drove it into the ground, and he died.When Barak arrived in pursuit of Sisera, Jael went out to greet him and said to him,“ Come and I will show you the man you are looking for.” So he went in with her, and there was Sisera lying dead with a tent peg through his temple!That day God subdued King Jabin of Canaan before the Israelites.The power of the Israelites continued to increase against King Jabin of Canaan until they destroyed him.On that day Deborah and Barak son of Abinoam sang:When the leaders lead in Israel, when the people volunteer, blessed be the LORD.Listen, kings! Pay attention, princes! I will sing to the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.LORD, when you came from Seir, when you marched from the fields of Edom, the earth trembled, the skies poured rain, and the clouds poured water.The mountains melted before the LORD, even Sinai, before the LORD, the God of Israel.In the days of Shamgar son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the main roads were deserted because travelers kept to the side roads.Villages were deserted, they were deserted in Israel, until I, Deborah, arose, a mother in Israel.Israel chose new gods, then there was war in the city gates. Not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel.My heart is with the leaders of Israel, with the volunteers of the people. Blessed be the LORD!You who ride on white donkeys, who sit on saddle blankets, and who travel on the road, give praise!Let them tell the righteous acts of the LORD, the righteous deeds of his villagers in Israel, with the voices of the singers at the watering places. Then the LORD’s people went down to the city gates.“ Awake! Awake, Deborah! Awake! Awake, sing a song! Arise, Barak, and take your prisoners, son of Abinoam!”Then the survivors came down to the nobles; the LORD’s people came down to me against the warriors.Those with their roots in Amalek came from Ephraim; Benjamin came with your people after you. The leaders came down from Machir, and those who carry a marshal’s staff came from Zebulun.The princes of Issachar were with Deborah; Issachar was with Barak; they were under his leadership in the valley. There was great searching of heart among the clans of Reuben.Why did you sit among the sheep pens listening to the playing of pipes for the flocks? There was great searching of heart among the clans of Reuben.Gilead remained beyond the Jordan. Dan, why did you linger at the ships? Asher remained at the seashore and stayed in his harbors.The people of Zebulun defied death, Naphtali also, on the heights of the battlefield.Kings came and fought. Then the kings of Canaan fought at Taanach by the Waters of Megiddo, but they did not plunder the silver.The stars fought from the heavens; the stars fought with Sisera from their paths.The river Kishon swept them away, the ancient river, the river Kishon. March on, my soul, in strength!The horses’ hooves then hammered— the galloping, galloping of his stallions.“ Curse Meroz,” says the angel of the LORD,“ Bitterly curse her inhabitants, for they did not come to help the LORD, to help the LORD with the warriors.”Most blessed of women is Jael, the wife of Heber the Kenite; she is most blessed among tent-dwelling women.He asked for water; she gave him milk. She brought him cream in a majestic bowl.She reached for a tent peg, her right hand, for a workman’s hammer. Then she hammered Sisera— she crushed his head; she shattered and pierced his temple.He collapsed, he fell, he lay down between her feet; he collapsed, he fell between her feet; where he collapsed, there he fell— dead.Sisera’s mother looked through the window; she peered through the lattice, crying out:“ Why is his chariot so long in coming? Why don’t I hear the hoofbeats of his horses?”Her wisest princesses answer her; she even answers herself:“ Are they not finding and dividing the spoil— a girl or two for each warrior, the spoil of colored garments for Sisera, the spoil of an embroidered garment or two for my neck?”LORD, may all your enemies perish as Sisera did. But may those who love him be like the rising of the sun in its strength. And the land had peace for forty years.The Israelites did what was evil in the sight of the LORD. So the LORD handed them over to Midian seven years,and they oppressed Israel. Because of Midian, the Israelites made hiding places for themselves in the mountains, caves, and strongholds.Whenever the Israelites planted crops, the Midianites, Amalekites, and the people of the east came and attacked them.They encamped against them and destroyed the produce of the land, even as far as Gaza. They left nothing for Israel to eat, as well as no sheep, ox, or donkey.For the Midianites came with their cattle and their tents like a great swarm of locusts. They and their camels were without number, and they entered the land to lay waste to it.So Israel became poverty-stricken because of Midian, and the Israelites cried out to the LORD.When the Israelites cried out to him because of Midian,the LORD sent a prophet to them. He said to them,“ This is what the LORD God of Israel says:‘ I brought you out of Egypt and out of the place of slavery.

  • 1 Samuel 28 3-1 Samuel 28 25
    By this time Samuel had died, all Israel had mourned for him and buried him in Ramah, his city, and Saul had removed the mediums and spiritists from the land.The Philistines gathered and camped at Shunem. So Saul gathered all Israel, and they camped at Gilboa.When Saul saw the Philistine camp, he was afraid and his heart pounded.He inquired of the LORD, but the LORD did not answer him in dreams or by the Urim or by the prophets.Saul then said to his servants,“ Find me a woman who is a medium, so I can go and consult her.” His servants replied,“ There is a woman at En-dor who is a medium.”Saul disguised himself by putting on different clothes and set out with two of his men. They came to the woman at night, and Saul said,“ Consult a spirit for me. Bring up for me the one I tell you.”But the woman said to him,“ You surely know what Saul has done, how he has cut off the mediums and spiritists from the land. Why are you setting a trap for me to get me killed?”Then Saul swore to her by the LORD:“ As surely as the LORD lives, no punishment will come to you from this.”“ Who is it that you want me to bring up for you?” the woman asked.“ Bring up Samuel for me,” he answered.When the woman saw Samuel, she screamed, and then she asked Saul,“ Why did you deceive me? You are Saul!”But the king said to her,“ Don’t be afraid. What do you see?”“ I see a spirit form coming up out of the earth,” the woman answered.Then Saul asked her,“ What does he look like?”“ An old man is coming up,” she replied.“ He’s wearing a robe.” Then Saul knew that it was Samuel, and he knelt low with his face to the ground and paid homage.“ Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” Samuel asked Saul.“ I’m in serious trouble,” replied Saul.“ The Philistines are fighting against me and God has turned away from me. He doesn’t answer me anymore, either through the prophets or in dreams. So I’ve called on you to tell me what I should do.”Samuel answered,“ Since the LORD has turned away from you and has become your enemy, why are you asking me?The LORD has done exactly what he said through me: The LORD has torn the kingship out of your hand and given it to your neighbor David.You did not obey the LORD and did not carry out his burning anger against Amalek; therefore the LORD has done this to you today.The LORD will also hand Israel over to the Philistines along with you. Tomorrow you and your sons will be with me, and the LORD will hand Israel’s army over to the Philistines.”Immediately, Saul fell flat on the ground. He was terrified by Samuel’s words and was also weak because he had not eaten anything all day and all night.The woman came over to Saul, and she saw that he was terrified and said to him,“ Look, your servant has obeyed you. I took my life in my hands and did what you told me to do.Now please listen to your servant. Let me set some food in front of you. Eat and it will give you strength so you can go on your way.”He refused, saying,“ I won’t eat,” but when his servants and the woman urged him, he listened to them. He got up off the ground and sat on the bed.The woman had a fattened calf at her house, and she quickly slaughtered it. She also took flour, kneaded it, and baked unleavened bread.She served it to Saul and his servants, and they ate. Afterward, they got up and left that night.
