Judges 3:12-30

In reading these verses, we learn that Ehud was a left-handed man and a Benjamite with a mission.  I wanted to know more about Ehud’s story and opened the, “Liberty Bible Commentary-Old Testament,” which says, “The Benjamites apparently were known for being left-handed (20:16) and even ambidextrous (I Chr 12:2)…Ehud made a dagger which was a cubit length (vs.16)…therefore it was about twelve to fourteen inches long.  Hiding the dagger under his robe, Ehud brought the tribute caravan to Eglon, who is described as a very fat man (indicating the need for the length of the dagger.)”

Take the time to read this story.  It’s a lot like an action scene in a movie.
