Biblical Limericks: Plunder and Rape Your Way to a Biblical Marriage

The men of Benjamin had no brides
so they armed themselves, set forth to ride.
No virgin would escape
as they plundered and raped,
not till enough women were supplied.

Judges 21

“Rape” in this sense means: “an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation; violation, the act of seizing and carrying off by force.” – As in the rape of the Sabine women – but I’m sure that the more modern meaning of the word was involved as well.
