The people were still sorry for Binyamin because The LORD had made a division among the tribes of Isra’el.
This makes me think of “hate the sin, love the sinner.” When someone has fallen into sin, it is right to grieve and hope for redemption. We all need to be saved from ourselves from time to time. We all need grace and forgiveness. Sometimes we need to be fought for. We ought to extend the same mercy to others, even when they hurt us and push us away.
