In my quiet time yesterday I read a verse that I’ve never noticed before. I know I’ve read it, but don’t remember noticing it until now.

But the rest fled to Aphek, into the city; and there a wall fell upon twenty and seven thousand of the men that were left. And Benhadad fled, and came into the city, into an inner chamber.
1 Kings 20:30

A wall fell on twenty seven thousand men. I just had to stop when I read that. God was giving Israel the victory in that battle, but I imagine nobody ever dreamed that He would do it that way.
