Judges 2

  1 H4397 And a messenger H3068 of the LORD H5927 [H8799] came up H1537 from Gilgal H1066 to Bochim, H559 [H8799] and said, H5927 [H8686] I made you to depart H4714 from Egypt, H935 [H8686] and have brought H776 you to the land H7650 [H8738] which I swore H1 to your fathers; H559 [H8799] and I said, H5769 I will never H6565 [H8686] break H1285 my covenant with you.
  2 H3772 [H8799] And ye shall make H1285 no league H3427 [H8802] with the inhabitants H776 of this land; H5422 [H8799] ye shall throw down H4196 their altars: H8085 [H8804] but ye have not obeyed H6963 my voice: H6213 [H8804] why have ye done this?
  3 H559 [H8804] Therefore I also said, H1644 [H8762] I will not drive them out H6440 from the face of H6654 you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, H430 and their gods H4170 shall be a snare to you.
  4 H4397 And it came to pass, when the messenger H3068 of the LORD H1696 [H8763] spoke H1697 these words H1121 to all the sons H3478 of Israel, H5971 that the people H5375 [H8799] lifted up H6963 their voice, H1058 [H8799] and wept.
  5 H7121 [H8799] And they called H8034 the name H4725 of that place H1066 Bochim: H2076 [H8799] and they sacrificed H3068 there to the LORD.
  6 H3091 And when Joshua H5971 had let the people H7971 [H8762] go, H1121 the sons H3478 of Israel H3212 [H8799] went H376 every man H5159 to his inheritance H3423 [H8800] to possess H776 the land.
  7 H5971 And the people H5647 [H8799] served H3068 the LORD H3117 all the days H3091 of Joshua, H3117 and all the days H2205 of the elders H748 H3117 H310 [H8689] that outlived H3091 Joshua, H7200 [H8804] who had seen H1419 all the great H4639 works H3068 of the LORD, H6213 [H8804] that he did H3478 for Israel.
  8 H3091 And Joshua H1121 the son H5126 of Nun, H5650 the servant H3068 of the LORD, H4191 [H8799] died, H3967 being an hundred H6235 and ten H8141 years H1121 old.
  9 H6912 [H8799] And they buried H1366 him in the border H5159 of his inheritance H8556 in Timnathheres, H2022 in the mount H669 of Ephraim, H6828 on the north side H2022 of the mountain H1608 Gaash.
  10 H1755 And also all that generation H622 [H8738] were gathered H1 to their fathers: H6965 [H8799] and there arose H312 another H1755 generation H310 after H3045 [H8804] them, which knew H3068 not the LORD, H4639 nor yet the works H6213 [H8804] which he had done H3478 for Israel.
  11 H1121 And the sons H3478 of Israel H6213 [H8799] did H7451 evil H5869 in the eyes H3068 of the LORD, H5647 [H8799] and served H1168 Baalim:
  12 H5800 [H8799] And they forsook H3068 the LORD H430 God H1 of their fathers, H3318 [H8688] who brought them out H776 of the land H4714 of Egypt, H3212 H310 [H8799] and followed H312 other H430 gods, H430 of the gods H5971 of the people H5439 that were around H7812 [H8691] them, and bowed H3068 themselves to them, and provoked the LORD H3707 [H8686] to anger.
  13 H5800 [H8799] And they forsook H3068 the LORD, H5647 [H8799] and served H1168 Baal H6252 and Ashtaroth.
  14 H639 And the anger H3068 of the LORD H2734 [H8799] was hot H3478 against Israel, H5414 [H8799] and he gave H3027 them into the hands H8154 [H8802] of plunderers H8155 [H8799] that plundered H4376 [H8799] them, and he sold H3027 them into the hands H341 [H8802] of their enemies H5439 around H3201 [H8804] them, so that they could H5750 not any longer H5975 [H8800] stand H6440 at the face of H341 [H8802] their enemies.
  15 H3318 [H8804] Wherever they went out, H3027 the hand H3068 of the LORD H7451 was against them for evil, H3068 as the LORD H1696 [H8765] had said, H3068 and as the LORD H7650 [H8738] had sworn H3966 to them: and they were greatly H3334 [H8799] distressed.
  16 H3068 Nevertheless the LORD H6965 [H8686] raised up H8199 [H8802] judges, H3467 [H8686] who liberated H3027 them out of the hand H8154 [H8802] of those that plundered them.
  17 H8085 [H8804] And yet they would not hearken H8199 [H8802] to their judges, H2181 H310 [H8804] but they played the harlot with H312 other H430 gods, H7812 [H8691] and bowed H5493 [H8804] themselves to them: they turned H4118 quickly H1870 out of the way H1 which their fathers H1980 [H8804] walked in, H8085 [H8800] obeying H4687 the commandments H3068 of the LORD; H6213 [H8804] but they did not so.
  18 H3068 And when the LORD H6965 [H8689] raised H8199 [H8802] up judges H3068 for them, then the LORD H8199 [H8802] was with the judge, H3467 [H8689] and liberated H3027 them out of the hand H341 [H8802] of their enemies H3117 all the days H8199 [H8802] of the judge: H3068 for the LORD H5162 [H8735] sighed H6440 because H5009 of their groanings H3905 [H8801] by reason of them that oppressed H1766 [H8802] them and burdened them.
  19 H8199 [H8802] And it came to pass, when the judge H4194 was dead, H7725 [H8799] that they returned, H7843 [H8689] and decayed H1 themselves more than their fathers, H3212 H310 [H8800] in following H312 other H430 gods H5647 [H8800] to serve H7812 [H8692] them, and to bow down H5307 [H8689] to them; they ceased H4611 not from their own doings, H7186 nor from their stubborn H1870 way.
  20 H639 And the anger H3068 of the LORD H2734 [H8799] was hot H3478 against Israel; H559 [H8799] and he said, H1471 Because that this nation H5674 [H8804] hath transgressed H1285 my covenant H6680 [H8765] which I commanded H1 their fathers, H8085 [H8804] and have not hearkened H6963 to my voice;
  21 H3254 [H8686] I also will not henceforth H3423 H376 [H8687] drive out H6440 from the face of H1471 them any of the nations H3091 which Joshua H5800 [H8804] left H4191 [H8799] when he died:
  22 H5254 [H8763] That through them I may test H3478 Israel, H8104 [H8802] whether they will keep H1870 the way H3068 of the LORD H3212 [H8800] to walk H1 in it, as their fathers H8104 [H8804] kept it, or not.
  23 H3068 Therefore the LORD H3240 [H8686] left H1471 those nations, H1115 without H3423 [H8687] driving them out H4118 speedily; H5414 [H8804] neither did he give H3027 them into the hand H3091 of Joshua.
