Series: Judges

Scripture Text:

Judges 1:1-7 (KJV)

1 Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children of Israel asked the Lord, saying, Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them?

2 And the Lord said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand.

3 And Judah said unto Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my lot, that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I likewise will go with thee into thy lot. So Simeon went with him.

4 And Judah went up; and the Lord delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand: and they slew of them in Bezek ten thousand men.

5 And they found Adonibezek in Bezek: and they fought against him, and they slew the Canaanites and the Perizzites.

6 But Adonibezek fled; and they pursued after him, and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes.

7 And Adonibezek said, Threescore and ten kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered their meat under my table: as I have done, so God hath requited me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died.



  1. The amazing providence of God! My 9th grader and I just completed the Book of Joshua last night and will begin reading the Book of Judges after baseball practice later today. We will listen to this audio sermon before beginning our reading. Thanks for posting Angela!

  2. Excellent sermon. Will listen to the entire series. Thanks again for posting!

    1. Thanks Larry! This series is preached by the pastor of a local church plant that I've been visiting.

    2. You're welcome Angela.I think my first comment didn't make it to you. God's providence at work here in that my 9th grade son and I just finished the Book of Joshua yesterday afternoon and were planning on moving into the Book of Judges after school today. This sermon will be a great way to start out that book.
