Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO JUDGES 2\\

This chapter gives an account of an angel of the Lord appearing and
rebuking the children of Israel for their present misconduct,
\\#Jud 2:1-5\\; of their good behaviour under Joshua, and the elders that
outlived him, \\#Jud 2:6-10\\; and of their idolatries they fell into
afterwards, which greatly provoked the Lord to anger, \\#Jud 2:11-15\\; and
of the goodness of God to them nevertheless, in raising up judges to
deliver them out of the hands of their enemies, of which there are many
instances in the following chapter, \\#Jud 2:16-18\\; and yet that how,
upon the demise of such persons, they relapsed into idolatry which
caused the anger of God to be hot against them, and to determine not to
drive out the Canaanites utterly from them, but to leave them among
them to try them, \\#Jud 2:19-23\\.
