Judges 2

LEB 1 And the angel of Yahweh went up from Gilgal to Bokim and said, "I brought you up from Egypt, and I brought you to the land that I had promised to your ancestors. I said, 'I will never break my covenant with you. NIV 1 The angel of the LORD went up from Gilgal to Bokim and said, “I brought you up out of Egypt and led you into the land I swore to give to your ancestors. I said, ‘I will never break my covenant with you, LEB 2 And [as for] you, do not {make a covenant} with the inhabitants of this land; break down their altars.' But you did not listen to my voice. {Why would you do such a thing}? NIV 2 and you shall not make a covenant with the people of this land, but you shall break down their altars.’ Yet you have disobeyed me. Why have you done this? LEB 3 Now I say, I will not drive them out from before you; they will {become as thorns} for you, and their gods will be a trap for you." NIV 3 And I have also said, ‘I will not drive them out before you; they will become traps for you, and their gods will become snares to you.’ ” LEB 4 And as the angel of Yahweh spoke these words to all the {Israelites}, the people {wept bitterly}. NIV 4 When the angel of the LORD had spoken these things to all the Israelites, the people wept aloud, LEB 5 And they called the name of this place Bokim, and there they sacrificed to Yahweh. NIV 5 and they called that place Bokim. There they offered sacrifices to the LORD. LEB 6 And Joshua sent the people away, and the {Israelites} went each to their own inheritance to take possession of the land. NIV 6 After Joshua had dismissed the Israelites, they went to take possession of the land, each to their own inheritance. LEB 7 And the people served Yahweh all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua, who saw all the great work Yahweh had done for Israel. NIV 7 The people served the LORD throughout the lifetime of Joshua and of the elders who outlived him and who had seen all the great things the LORD had done for Israel. LEB 8 And Joshua son of Nun, servant of Yahweh, died {at the age of one hundred and ten years}. NIV 8 Joshua son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died at the age of a hundred and ten. LEB 9 They buried him within the border of his inheritance in Timnah-heres, in the hill country of Ephraim north of Mount Gaash. NIV 9 And they buried him in the land of his inheritance, at Timnath Heres in the hill country of Ephraim, north of Mount Gaash. LEB 10 Moreover, that entire generation was gathered to their ancestors, and another generation grew up after them who did not know Yahweh or the work he had done for Israel. NIV 10 After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the LORD nor what he had done for Israel. LEB 11 The {Israelites} did evil in the eyes of Yahweh, and {they served} the Baals. NIV 11 Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD and served the Baals. LEB 12 They abandoned Yahweh the God of their ancestors, who brought them out from the land of Egypt. They {followed} other gods from the gods of the people who [were] around them; and they bowed down to them, and they provoked the anger of Yahweh. NIV 12 They forsook the LORD, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the LORD’s anger LEB 13 They abandoned Yahweh, and they served Baal and the Ashtaroth. NIV 13 because they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths. LEB 14 So {the anger of Yahweh was kindled} against Israel, and he gave them into the hand of plunderers; and they plundered them, and he sold them into the hand of their enemies from all sides. They were unable to withstand their enemies any longer. NIV 14 In his anger against Israel the LORD gave them into the hands of raiders who plundered them. He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, whom they were no longer able to resist. LEB 15 {Whenever} they went out, the hand of Yahweh was against them to harm [them], just as Yahweh warned, and just as Yahweh had sworn to them. And {they were very distressed}. NIV 15 Whenever Israel went out to fight, the hand of the LORD was against them to defeat them, just as he had sworn to them. They were in great distress. LEB 16 Then Yahweh raised up leaders, and they delivered them from the hand of their plunderers. NIV 16 Then the LORD raised up judges, who saved them out of the hands of these raiders. LEB 17 But they did not listen to their leaders, but lusted after other gods and bowed down to them. They turned away quickly from the way that their ancestors went, who had obeyed the commandment of Yahweh; they did not do [as their ancestors]. NIV 17 Yet they would not listen to their judges but prostituted themselves to other gods and worshiped them. They quickly turned from the ways of their ancestors, who had been obedient to the LORD’s commands. LEB 18 And when Yahweh raised leaders for them, Yahweh was with the leader, and he delivered them from the hand of their enemies all the days of the leader, for Yahweh was moved by their groaning because of their persecutors and oppressors. NIV 18 Whenever the LORD raised up a judge for them, he was with the judge and saved them out of the hands of their enemies as long as the judge lived; for the LORD relented because of their groaning under those who oppressed and afflicted them. LEB 19 But when the leader died they relapsed and acted corruptly, more than their ancestors, following other gods, serving them, and bowing down to them. They would not give up their deeds or their stubborn ways. NIV 19 But when the judge died, the people returned to ways even more corrupt than those of their ancestors, following other gods and serving and worshiping them. They refused to give up their evil practices and stubborn ways. LEB 20 {So the anger of Yahweh burned} against Israel, and he said, "Because this people transgressed my covenant that I commanded their ancestors, and have not obeyed my voice, NIV 20 Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel and said, “Because this nation has violated the covenant I ordained for their ancestors and has not listened to me, LEB 21 I will not again drive out anyone from before them from the nations that Joshua left when he died, NIV 21 I will no longer drive out before them any of the nations Joshua left when he died. LEB 22 in order to test Israel whether or not they would observe the way of Yahweh, to walk in it just as their ancestors did." NIV 22 I will use them to test Israel and see whether they will keep the way of the LORD and walk in it as their ancestors did.” LEB 23 So Yahweh left those nations; he did not drive them out at once, and he did not give them into the hand of Joshua. NIV 23 The LORD had allowed those nations to remain; he did not drive them out at once by giving them into the hands of Joshua.
