Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Left-handed
     (Judg. 3:15; 20:16), one unable to use the right hand skilfully,
     and who therefore uses the left; and also one who uses the left
     as well as the right, ambidexter. Such a condition of the hands
     is due to physical causes. This quality was common apparently in
     the tribe of Benjamin.
