Judges 3:31 (King James Version)
And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel.
- Judges 5:6 Judges 5:8
- an ox goad
- This implement, Mr. Maundrell informs us, in Palestine and Syria is of an extraordinary size. He measured several, and "found them about eight feet long; and at the bigger end about
- six inches in circumference. They were armed at the lesser end with a sharp prickle for driving the oxen; and at the other end with a small paddle of iron, strong and massive, for cleansing the plough from the clay. In the hand of a powerful man such an instrument must be more dangerous and fatal than a sword." 15:15 1 Samuel 13:19-22 ; 1 Samuel 17:47 1 Samuel 17:50 1 Corinthians 1:17
- "So part is called Israel." Judges 4:1 Judges 4:3-24 Judges 10:7 Judges 10:17 11:4-33 1 Samuel 4:1
- "It seems to concern only the country next to the Philistines."
