Judges 10:15

15 But the Israelites said, "We have sinned. Deal with us as You see fit;[a] only deliver us today!"

Judges 10:15 Meaning and Commentary

Judges 10:15

And the children of Israel said unto the Lord, we have sinned,
&c.] By serving other gods particularly; and they seemed to have a true sense of their sin, and their confessions of it to be ingenuous, by what follows:

do thou unto us whatsoever seemeth good unto thee;
inflict what punishment he would upon them, as famine or pestilence, they could not but own it would be just and righteous, and what their sins deserved:

deliver us only, we pray thee, this day;
out of the hands of men; they chose rather to fall into the hands of God; and however he thought fit to deal with them, they entreated that this once he would save them out of the hands of their enemies.

Judges 10:15 In-Context

13 But you have abandoned Me and worshiped other gods. Therefore, I will not deliver you again.
14 Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them deliver you in the time of your oppression."
15 But the Israelites said, "We have sinned. Deal with us as You see fit; only deliver us today!"
16 So they got rid of the foreign gods among them and worshiped the Lord, but He became weary of Israel's misery.
17 The Ammonites were called together, and they camped in Gilead. So the Israelites assembled and camped at Mizpah.
