“How blessed will be the one who seizes and dashes your little ones against the rock,”
This particular verse is one which is thrown at Christians quite often and you can see why, considering the nature of the statement however, to say God condones or agrees within in his Word, would be inaccurate to say least. Context in this case is the key, at this point in history, the children of Israel were in a place of captivity and their captors had been severely wicked to them, their families and their nation. During these verses, the women were conveying a deep sense of sadness and hurt towards their situation and anger toward their captors and the feeling was basically, “I wish someone would punish them and avenge them for what they’ve done”. Again this was the feeling of the women making those statements at this particular point in time to which the Word was explaining, but to say that God agrees would be inaccurate, the Lord’s scriptures in this case merely convey the feelings of the Israelites at this point.
