Shamgar

Judges 3:31 (NIV)
After Ehud came Shamgar son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad. He too saved Israel.

Anath–means answer (to prayer)
Shamgar–means sword

The number 600 is associated with warfare. Noah was 600 years old at the time of the flood. At the Exodus, Pharoah sent 600 of the best chariots. Six hundred Danites conquered Laish. Six hundred Benjamites escaped destruction by the men of Israel. King Saul had 600 men staying with him at Gibeah.  David moved from place to place with 600 men as Saul searched for him.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Your words pierce my heart and yet hold my life together.   I thank You for Your words.  I clasp Your words to the mantle of my heart.   Cut away all godlessness and draw me close to You.  Save me, I pray .  Amen.

Ecclesiastes 12:11
