If the Ammonites had been conscious of a valid claim, their demand should have been published before invading But we have no intimation of this, and the claim now preferred was evidently trumped up to serve the present occasion, as affording a colorable pretence of justice the invasion; showing that they who are destitute of conscience and honesty, are often very unwilling to appear Jephthah, however, what follows, stripped their conduct of its specious disguise, and showed conclusively how false and arrogant were their pretensions. land. Speaking the name both of the children of Ammon and Moab, over whom unitedly he seems, at this time, to have reigned as Daniel Block The response of the of the sons Ammon to Jephthah's first approach is curt and to the point. By invading the land of Gilead he has reclaimed land the Israelites had taken away from him. The 's historical sense is both remarkable and skewed. On the one hand, he was aware of 's origins Egypt and their earlier migration to the land of Canaan. On the other hand, he accused them of injustice against him, inasmuch as they had robbed him of the territory between the Arnon and Jabbok tributaries of the But this is patently false. The Ammonites had never occupied this land. Even the new territorial claims are understandable because the Ammonite heartland consisted of amorphous region without distinct geographic boundaries between the desert to the east and the hills of Gilead the west. The present claims arise not only from a for more land but also out of a need for fixed and definable borders, such as these rivers would provide. But the Ammonite's claim is based more on wishful thinking than on historical reality. According to the biblical record the Arnon served as the border between Moab and the Amorites and the Israelites had gained title to the land between this river and the Jabbok by defeating the Amorite Sihon, who ruled Heshbon.63 But the Ammonite 's reply to Jephthah is a typical political speech, claiming land that his people have never owned but basing his claim on history. A R Fausset Barber comments that Fausset's work is of immeasurable value. Remains one of the finest treatments extant. A must for the expositor. And the of the children of Ammon answered unto the messengers of Jephthah, Because took away land, when they came up out of Egypt, from Arnon even unto Jabbok and unto now therefore restore those again peaceably. Judges 11 But Jephthah sent messengers again to the of the sons of Ammon, Jephthah states the facts correctly concerning the Ammonites' false claim to the disputed land When first captured it it belonged to the Amorites NOT the Ammonites. Block Jephthah responded to the of Ammon's rebuff with a second delegation of envoys, sent with a specific message dictated by the Gileadite leader This speech is remarkable not only for its length but also the formality and sophistication of Jephthah's argumentation Inrig The fourth stage of Jephthah's career puts him a very different role. We do not need to pursue all the details either of the argument or of the history Jephthah recounts. But we need to notice that the illegitimate outcast and desert gang leader is now negotiating face to face with enemy A few days have brought him a very distance! He is not a tentative leader. He had been given a responsibility, and he seized it with both hands. Jephthah was a fighting and we might expect him to strike first and to ask questions later. But that was not the route he chose to go. Before he up battle lines, Jephthah sent messengers to Ammon, asking the obvious question, What is the problem? Why are you invading us and fighting against our land? He accused Ammon of unwarranted aggression, unjustified invasion. Ammon countered with a claim that had stolen Ammon's land hundreds of years earlier the time of and that he was simply seeking justice, a rightful land claim. Jephthah turned out to be as forceful and strong-minded a negotiator with the of Ammon as he had been with the tribal leaders of Gilead. He displayed a strong grasp of the historical realities and he was convinced that the story of was a story of what God had done. His response was direct and to the point: He told the Check your history. We captured the land from Sihon, the of the Amorites, not the Ammonites Next, check your theology. The Lord God of gave us this land, and we cannot surrender His gift. Live the land
