Sermon Notes - July 10, 2022
After God’s Own Heart - God Loves Justice - Jon Furman

Joshua 9:18b-20 (NLT)
“The people of Israel grumbled against their leaders because of the treaty. But the Leaders replied, “Since we have sworn an oath in the presence of the Lord, the god of Israel, we cannot touch them. This is what we must do. We must let them live, for divine anger would come upon us if we broke our oath.”

2 Samuel 21:1-2 (NLT)
There was a famine during David’s reign that lasted for three years, so David asked the Lord about it. And the Lord said, “The famine has come because Saul and his family are guilty of murdering the Gibeonites.” So the king summoned the Gibeonites. They were not part of Israel but were all that was left of the nation of the Amorites. The people of Israel had sworn not to kill them, but Saul, in his zeal for Israel and Judah, had tried to wipe them out.

2 Samuel 21:2-3 (NLT)
David asked them, “What can I do for you? How can I make amends so that you will bless the Lord’s people again?”

2 Samuel 21:4 (NLT)
“Well, money can’t settle this matter between us and the family of Saul,” the Gibeonites replied. “Neither can we demand the life of anyone in Israel.” “What can I do then?” David asked. “Just tell me and I will do it for you.”

2 Samuel 21:5-6 (NLT)
Then they replied, “It was Saul who planned to destroy us, to keep us from having any place at all in the territory of Israel. So let seven of Saul’s sons be handed over to us, and we will execute them before the Lord at Gibeon, on the mountain of the Lord.” “And the Lord said, ‘The famine has come because Saul and his family are guilty of murdering the Gibeonites.’

2 Samuel 21:10 (NLT)
Then Rizpah daughter of Aiah, the mother of two of the men, spread burlap on a rock and stayed there the entire harvest season. She prevented the scavenger birds from tearing at their bodies during the day and stopped wild animals from eating them at night.

2 Samuel 21:14 (NLT)
Then the king ordered that they bury the bones in the tomb of Kish, Saul’s father, at the town of Zela in the land of Benjamin. After that, God ended the famine in the land.
