Shagmar, my new favorite Bible hero

Here is what the Bible says about Shagmar:

"After him was Shagmar, the son of Anath, who killed 600 Philistines with an oxgoad, and he also saved Israel." (Judges 3:31)

And... that is all. I kind of like this guy.

Here is an oxgoad:

Hey this guy Shagmar must've been some kind of amazing warrior to kill 600 philistines with just an ox-goad. I imagine the scene from Matrix when Neo was fighting all those agents on the playground and knocking them down one after another, barely touched himself. The Bible is filled with rugged characters with amazing abilities... real man's men.
