Extreme Violence!

2 Chronicles 25:12 Also the children of Judah took captive ten thousand alive, brought them to the top of the rock, and cast them down from the top of the rock, so that they all were dashed in pieces.

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

Of course this does not specifically state that God commanded the children of Judah to commit these violent acts. However, earlier in the chapter, it does state that Amaziah, who was leading Judah’s efforts here, “did what was right in the sight of the Lord.” This is one of the verses from the Old Testament I try not to meditate on.
