100614 Judges 1-2

Judges 1
1.7  As I have done, so God has done to me.  What goes around comes around (as a result of Divine agency).
1.19  The Lord was with Judah ... but he could not drive our the inhabitants of the plain because they had chariots of iron.  This is a very curious verse.
1.21  so the Jebusites have lived with the people of Benjamin in Jerusalem to this day.  This is puzzling to me, because in verse 8 Judah set the city on fire.  It seems that they should have been able to make them leave.  Hmmmm...
1.21, 27, 29, 30, 31, and 33  did not drive out...  Joshua 23.12-13
Judges 2
2.10  One of the saddest verses in the Bible
2.15  as the Lord had warned... Sounds a lot like, "I told you so."
2.17  whored after...  There is much to reflect on when scripture puts a lack of devotion to God in quazi sexual terms.
2.18  the Lord was moved to pity... a remarkable phrase to come after verse 17.
