And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon.8
And that year they vexed and oppressedb the children of Israel:eighteenyears, all the children of Israel that were on the other sideJordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead.9

And the children of Israelcried unto the LORD,saying , We have sinned against thee, both because we have forsaken our God, and also servedBaalim.11
And the LORDsaid unto the children of Israel, Did not I deliver you from the Egyptians, and from the Amorites, from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines?12
The Zidonians also, and the Amalekites, and the Maonites, did oppress you; and ye cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand.
