Israel did not yet have kings to rule over them. Initially, God’s plan was to have judges rule over the people. Shamgar is one of the minor judges Israel. How minor is minor? Well, he gets one verse.
31 After him was Shamgar the son of Anath, who killed six hundred men of the Philistines with an ox goad; and he also delivered Israel. NKJV
But this one man, a farmer by trade, killed six hundred of the trained, better-equipped enemy with a farming tool. He may have only had one verse written about him…not many Christians may know his name or the minute details of his story, but what he did was pretty impressive.
In God’s eyes, you are.
– Genesis 16:13
