Judges 3:15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 But when the Israelites cried out to the Lord, he raised up for them a savior, Ehud, son of Gera, a Benjaminite who was left-handed.[a] The Israelites would send their tribute to Eglon, king of Moab, by him.


  1. 3:15 Left-handed: this detail is important because it shows why Ehud is able to conceal a weapon on his right thigh (3:16). There is also a wordplay involved, since “Benjaminite” in Hebrew could also mean “right-handed man.”
