VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. In those days, there's no king in Israel

IN THOSE days, when there was no king in Israel, a certain Levite was living temporarily in the most remote part of the hill district of Ephraim, who took to himself a concubine [of inferior status than a wife] from Bethlehem in Judah.

The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY the FATHER GOD is the KING unless you don't know what's said in His Words. The reason why Israel thought to himself there's no king, it's because they have no GOD during those days.

Every man for himself, every man doing what he thinks right in his own eyes spells C-H-A-O-S.
