Scriptural Meditation- 2 Samuel 20:20

Yo’av answered, “Heaven forbid! Heaven forbid that I should swallow or destroy anything!


This whole account feels so off and bad to me. Who is this Sheva that he should pull most of Israel away from following David? Yo’av feels like a loose canon. Was ‘Amasa’s death justified? Was it murder? Through all this the strongest message I can find is: be wary that zeal to do good not be twisted into license to do evil. The wise old woman saved her city from mich bloodshed by offering up Sheva to Yo’av.
