    God's wrath and judgement are indeed terrible to behold. The WTS tries to apologize for God here. It is simply history and bears a warning for nations that practice devilish things. I wonder what will happen to western civilization for making abortion so cheap, legal and easy to obtain?

    Your off again, Nicolau. Do some research and see the laws regarding foreigners or captives in Israel. These ones would become family members. God's wrath is indeed terrible to behold, is it not? God used Israel to bring on the punishment that had been foretold to these people for four hundred years. Thdy did not repent, they received judgement. It's history and it reflected the barbaric age of the times.
    Do you see that in the revelation that Jesus brought to us when He walked amongst us? Is this kind of things in His teachings? You will see the final trump in the end times prophecies but that is eternal judgement and not temporal.

    "In case a man finds a girl, a virgin who has not been engaged, and he actually seizes her and lies down with her, and they have been found out, 29 the man who lay down with her must also give the girl’s father fifty silver shekels, and she will become his wife due to the fact that he humiliated her. He will not be allowed to divorce her all his days.

    Sheesh! How in the heck does this benefit the rape victim? Who in their right mind would want to marryt he dude tha violated them and imagine how the father feels. I am sorry to say but sometimes I just don't get God. The DUBS love the stories where someone was destroyed from 'Jehobah's anger' But ignore anything having to do with sex-yup who needs porn when ya got the Song of Solomon? I wonder when its gonna come out on DVD

    11 And King Sol´o·mon himself loved many foreign wives along with the daughter of Phar´aoh, Mo´ab·ite, Am´mon·ite, E´dom·ite, Si·do´ni·an [and] Hit´tite women, 2 from the nations of whom Jehovah had said to the sons of Israel: “YOU must not go in among them, and they themselves should not come in among YOU; truly they will incline YOUR heart to follow their gods.” It was to them that Sol´o·mon clung to love [them]. 3 And he came to have seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his wives gradually inclined his heart. 4 And it came about in the time of Sol´o·mon’s growing old that his wives themselves had inclined his heart to follow other gods; and his heart did not prove to be complete with Jehovah his God like the heart of David his father...41 As for the rest of the affairs of Sol´o·mon and all that he did and his wisdom, are they not written in the book of the affairs of Sol´o·mon? 42 And the days that Sol´o·mon had reigned in

    Hey, what happened to the rest of my post?

    42 And the days that Sol´o·mon had reigned in

    Okay, this is just a CONSPIRACY.

    My point is that the WISEST man that ever lived committed apostasy and turned to paganism...and was still buried with honor among his forefathers (NOT destroyed)...that tells ME something...

    My personal favorite is the part where the Israelites have been living off Manna for so long they are sick of it and they start clammoring for meat. They apparently clammor so much (in much the same manner as Jesus later said to pray, i.e. incessently) that Joe Hober gets pissed and say, "Oh, so you want meat do ya? Wello, fine then, I'm gonna give yo so much meat it comes out your nose!" And the next thing they know, they're chest deep in Quail. What a riot!

    Ya, and then they ate so much of it it was coming out their noses!
