Israel Serves Baals

11 Then the sons of Israel did 1evil in the sight of the LORD and aserved the 2Baals, 12 and 3they forsook the LORD, the God of their fathers, who had brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods from among the gods of the peoples who were around them, and bowed themselves down to them; thus they provoked the LORD to anger. 13 So they forsook the LORD and 4served Baal and the Ashtaroth. 14 5The anger of the LORD burned against Israel, and He gave them into the hands of plunderers who plundered them; and 6He sold them into the hands of their enemies around them, so that they could no longer stand before their enemies. 15 Wherever they went, the hand of the LORD was against them for evil, as the LORD had spoken and 7as the LORD had sworn to them, so that they were severely distressed. 16 8Then the LORD raised up judges bwho delivered them from the hands of those who plundered them. 17 Yet they did not listen to their judges, for they played the harlot after other gods and bowed themselves down to them. They turned aside quickly from the way 9in which their fathers had walked in obeying the commandments of the LORD; they did not do as their fathers. 18 When the LORD raised up judges for them, 10the LORD was with the judge and delivered them from the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge; for the LORD was 11moved to pity by their groaning because of those who oppressed and afflicted them. 19 But it came about when the judge died, that they would turn back and act more corruptly than their fathers, in following other gods to serve them and bow down to them; they did not abandon their practices or their stubborn ways.
