Ehud was the the second judge of Israel. One thing different about Ehud is the fact that he was left-handed! The Bible sees fit to include this detail.
Again the Israelites cried out to the Lord, and he gave them a deliverer —Ehud , a left-handed man, the son of Gera the Benjamite. (15)
God uses Ehud to deliver the nation of Israel from Eglon, an overweight king of Moab. Ehud also creates for himself a unique weapon to dispatch Eglon, a double-edged dagger a foot long. Ehud goes to visit Eglon under the guise of delivering a message. Chapter three in Judges describes Ehud's assasination attempt. When Ehud strikes Eglon with the dagger, as described in verse 22, the king is so over-weight that the fat closes over the blade.
