The Book of Judges of
which the book or Ruth formed originally a part, contains a history
from Joshua to Samson. The book may be divided into two parts:
Chapters 1-16. We may
observe in general on this portion of the book that it is almost
entirely a history of the wars of deliverance.
Chapters 17-21. This
part has no formal connection with the preceding, and is often
called an appendix. The period to which the narrative relates is
simply marked by the expression, "when there was no king in
Israel." Chapter ( Judges 19:1 ; 18:1 ) It records -- (a) The
conquest of Laish by a portion of the tribe of Dan, and the
establishment there of the idolatrous worship of Jehovah already
instituted by Micah in Mount Ephraim. (b) The almost total
extinction of the tribe of Benjamin.
Chapters 17-21 are
inserted both as an illustration of the sin of Israel during the
time of the judges and as presenting a contrast with the better
order prevailing in the time of the kings. The time commonly
assigned to the period contained in this book is 299 years. The
dates given in the last article amount to 410 years, without the
40 years of Eli; but in ( 1 Kings 6:1 ) the whole period from
the exodus to the building of the temple is stated as 480 years.
But probably some of the judges were contemporary, so that their
total period is 299 years instead of 410.
