Judges 3:31

Judges 3:31: Shamgar


Apparently Shamgar had a fairly boring reign as Israel’s judge: He only gets one verse. (Still, it’s one more verse of the Bible than I’ll ever get.)
After Ehud came Shamgar son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad. He too saved Israel. (Judges 3:31)


There’s not a whole lot to say about this passage. Except that an “oxgoad” is some type of sharp implement, used for driving oxen.
