Fat Eglon

James Aitken uploaded as essay today you’ll enjoy: Fat Eglon, in G. Khan & D. Lipton (eds), Studies on the Text and Versions of the Hebrew Bible in honour of Robert Gordon (VTS 149; Leiden: Brill, 2012), 141-54.

I confess to being unusually interested in this particular story from Judges. It’s just fascinating and the twists and turns drive knifelike into the gut of curiosity. Plus, the telling in Hebrew is funny as all get out!

Many thanks to Jim for uploading it.
