At the end of Chapter 3, readers are told that Shamgar, the son of Anath, killed 600 Philistines with an ox goad--a sharp stick used to prod recalcitrant beasts of the field.
The third section has entries for Canaanite deities Anath, Asherah, and Astarte; the Greek goddess Artemis; the demon Lilith; the personifications Earth as Mother, Woman Wisdom, Jerusalem/Zion as Widow and Mother, and Sister Church; a discussion of the female images for nations in Ezekiel and for God in the Hebrew Bible and the apocryphal/deuterocanonical books; and more.
Thus, Shamgar ben Anath strikes down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad (Judges 3:31); Sisera, with 900 iron chariots (nine might almost be plausible), oppresses the Israelites for 20 years, until he is vanquished by 10,000 Israelites; Gideon's 300 men with 300 trumpets slay 120,000 swordsmen, then rout the remaining 15,000 (56) (Judges 7-8); Yair's 30 sons ride 30 donkeys and rule 30 towns (Judges 10); Samson catches 300 foxes and escapes 3000 captors, killing 1000 with the jawbone of an ass, then leads Israel for 20 years, until Delilah cuts off seven locks of his hair (Judges 15-16).
