The Bible is filled with incredible violence—from the first murder, to the drowning of almost the entire human race, to the death of Jezebel (and her aftermath), to the stomach-turning death of Eglon (see Judges 3:21–24) and the hammering of a tent-peg through the head of a sleeping man. Babies are cut from wombs, people are eaten, beheaded, burned alive, and cut in half. The Bible doesn’t hide the bloody history of mankind. It reveals it, and then offers the solution to the wicked and violent heart of man—the gospel of peace.
Judges 5:24 “Most blessed among women is Jael, The wife of Heber the Kenite;
Blessed is she among women in tents.
25He asked for water, she gave milk;
She brought out cream in a lordly bowl.
26She stretched her hand to the tent peg,
Her right hand to the workmen’s hammer;
She pounded Sisera, she pierced his head,
She split and struck through his temple.
27At her feet he sank, he fell, he lay still;
At her feet he sank, he fell;
Where he sank, there he fell dead.
