And Ehud reached with his left hand and took the sword from his right thigh and thrust it into his belly, Bible

“And Ehud reached with his left hand.” The fact that Ehud reached with his left hand may have caught Eglon off guard. He likely had not noticed before that Ehud was left-handed, and so Ehud’s left-handed reach may have bought Ehud the few extra seconds he needed to grab the dagger and kill Eglon with it.
