Always great to have you back to share some Daily Bread. As I mentioned at the end of our last story, this is a story that happened during a time when there was no king in Israel, no judge, and every person did whatever was right in their own eyes.

This story is not in chronological order with the rest of the book of judges, and you will discover the facts that make it clear, after we get well into the study, so let's begin, shall we?

There was a Levite man, staying in Mt. Ephraim, who had a concubine (servant wife) from Bethlehem, and she was unfaithful to him, then went away to her father's house for four months. The husband decided to reconcile with her and bring her back home, so he took his servant and went to get her. When he arrived, her father was just delighted to see him.

The woman's father convinced him to stay for four days, eager to entertain him with food and drink, and even the fifth day, persuaded him not to leave until the day grew late. Finally the man insisted on leaving with his wife and servant, and they neared Jerusalem at dusk.

The servant encouraged the man to lodge somewhere in Jerusalem, but at that time, the city belonged to the Jebusites (Canaanites) and he would not agree to lodge in the city of strangers, so they continued on to Gibeah, arriving at dark. Gibeah is a city of the tribe of Benjamin.

When nobody on the street invited them to lodge, an old man from Mt. Ephraim, who was residing in Gibeah, had just finished his work in the field for the day and seeing them, welcomed them into his home to lodge.

While they were enjoying each other's company, certain wicked men of the city surrounded the house, demanding that the old man send his gentleman guest out so that they could abuse him. (Does this remind you a little of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah?)

The old man begged them not to do such evil, and offered his daughter, and his guest's concubine to satisfy their lust upon, which was considered less wickedness than defiling a man of Israel.

Cut Pieces Sent to Each Tribe of Israel Story

The men of the city wouldn't listen to the old man, so the Levite man brought his concubine out and they took her and abused her until dawn, then let her go. She returned to the old man's house and fell down at the door. When the man opened the door at daylight to go his way, he saw her lying at the door and supposing that she was asleep, tried to waken her to go home with him ... But she was dead.

Now remember, these were days when there was no judge in Israel, so this man took matters into his own hands. How do you think he procured justice for the injustice that was done to him and his concubine? He took her home on a mule, and with a knife, he cut her in 12 pieces and sent one to each of the tribes of Israel.

All who saw or heard about it were astonished and agreed that nothing of the sort had ever happened in Israel since the day they came out of Egypt, and they all knew something had to be done.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
