THE LENTIL FIELD  1/24/06

 

Today this section of scripture was quickened to me to look up the Hebrew words. This was quickened to me for now, especially after having stood through the flood last Monday.   Here is what I found:

 

Shammah, 5th in rank of Davidís mightiest men, the son of a mountaineer, stood in the center of his abundant field of lentils, beat back his enemies and gained a mighty deliverance.

 

2 Sam 23:11-12 NLT

Next in rank was Shammah son of Agee from Harar. One time the Philistines gathered at Lehi and attacked the Israelites in a field full of lentils. The Israelite army fled, but Shammah held his ground in the middle of the field and beat back the Philistines. So the LORD brought about a great victory.

 

2 Sam 23:10-12 NKJV

And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. The Philistines had gathered together into a troop where there was a piece of ground full of lentils. So the people fled from the Philistines. But he stationed himself in the middle of the field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. So the LORD brought about a great victory.

WORD TO PONDER:  STAND YOUR GROUND  1/24/06

Courageous one, sometimes you simply have to stand your ground and beat back the enemy from your place of abundance.  Remember Shammah, he was 5th in rank of Davidís mightiest men.  A son of a mountaineer, he stood in the center of the abundant field of lentils.  He beat back his enemies and gained a mighty deliverance.  Where others fled, Shammah was an astonishment and not only stood his ground in a place of abundance, but also in living out his name and calling.

 

2 Sam 23:10-12 NKJV

And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. The Philistines had gathered together into a troop where there was a piece of ground full of lentils. So the people fled from the Philistines. But he stationed himself in the middle of the field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. So the LORD brought about a great victory.
