Judges 2


2:1 And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and
 said, I made you to depart from Egypt, and have brought you to
 the land which I swore to your fathers; and I said, I will
 never break my covenant with you.
2:2 And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this
 land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed
 my voice: why have ye done this?
2:3 Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before
 you; but they shall be [as thorns] in your sides, and their
 gods shall be a snare to you.
2:4 And it came to pass, when the angel of the LORD spoke these
 words to all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up
 their voice, and wept.
2:5 And they called the name of that place Bochim: and they
 sacrificed there to the LORD.
2:6 And when Joshua had let the people go, the children of
 Israel went every man to his inheritance to possess the land.
2:7 And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and
 all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen
 all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel.
2:8 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died,
 [being] a hundred and ten years old.
2:9 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in
 Timnath-heres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of
 the hill Gaash.
2:10 And also all that generation were gathered to their
 fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which
 knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for
 Israel.
2:11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the
 LORD, and served Baalim:
2:12 And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, who brought
 them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the
 gods of the people that [were] around them, and bowed
 themselves to them, and provoked the LORD to anger.
2:13 And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.
2:14 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he
 delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them,
 and he sold them into the hands of their enemies around, so
 that they could not any longer stand before their enemies.
2:15 Whithersoever they went out, the hand of the LORD was
 against them for evil, as the LORD had said, and as the LORD
 had sworn to them: and they were greatly distressed.
2:16 Nevertheless the LORD raised up judges, who delivered them
 out of the hand of those that spoiled them.
2:17 And yet they would not hearken to their judges, but they
 went astray after other gods, and bowed themselves to them:
 they turned quickly out of the way which their fathers walked
 in, obeying the commandments of the LORD; [but] they did not
 so.
2:18 And when the LORD raised up judges for them, then the LORD
 was with the judge, and delivered them out of the hand of their
 enemies all the days of the judge: (for the LORD repented
 because of their groanings by reason of them that oppressed
 them and burdened them.)
2:19 And it came to pass, when the judge was dead, [that] they
 returned, and corrupted [themselves] more than their fathers,
 in following other gods to serve them, and to bow down to them;
 they ceased not from their own doings, nor from their stubborn
 way.
2:20 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and he
 said, Because that this people hath transgressed my covenant
 which I commanded their fathers, and have not hearkened to my
 voice;
2:21 I also will not henceforth drive out from before them any
 of the nations which Joshua left when he died:
2:22 That through them I may prove Israel, whether they will
 keep the way of the LORD to walk in it, as their fathers kept
 [it], or not.
2:23 Therefore the LORD left those nations, without driving them
 out speedily, neither did he deliver them into the hand of
 Joshua.
