Judges 19

Gaebelein's Annotated BibleGaebelein's Annotated

Verses 1-30

2. Israel’s Moral Condition and the War on Benjamin

CHAPTER 19 The Levite and His Concubine

1. The Levite and the unfaithful woman (Judges 19:1-21 )

2. The fate of the concubine (Judges 19:22-30 )

The results of departure from God are now revealed in the awful corruption and violence so faithfully recorded in this chapter. The moral condition of Israel has gone down to the same level of the Canaanites; they sank even lower than the nations whom God had doomed to destruction. We do not repeat the horrible details of this deed of lust and violence. Apostasy from God, rejection of the truth is followed by moral corruption. Romans 1:26-32 shows the vileness of the Gentiles, who turned their backs to the light and did not glorify God. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 contains the description of the moral corruption of the last days of the present age, the conditions of those who claim to be “religious” and yet are apostates. The days of Lot, with their vileness, are to precede the coming of the Son of Man (Luke 17:28-30 ). Evidences that such moral corruption and violence exist today throughout professing Christendom are only too numerous.
