An interesting look into the lives of the peoples of this time. When it is said that they "did what was right in their own eyes" that's just what they did. One man made him idols and made him his own personal levite priest to go along side. Another was a priest who was sold out to the highest bidder. Another is a well intending hospitable man who attempts to protect his guests from the townsfolk mob giving his concubine over to the ritual lusts of the men of his town. Then he sends pieces of her body to the leaders of the eleven other tribes inciting a civil war. Everyone involved surely found a way to justify themselves and their despicable actions no doubt.
How cool would it be to be like a great grand child two or three generations from this and see that the men of your family are actually mentioned in the Book of Chronicles as actually doing something marvelous for the Lord. There for you and everyone else to read about. Problem is that two generations or so seems to be the length of most of these revivals, those generations may not even be aware that there is such a book.
