How could you do this? 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? NCV 3 Now I tell you, 'I will not force out the people in this land. They will be your enemies, 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.’ ” NCV 4 After the angel gave Israel this message from the Lord, they cried loudly.

NCV 9 They buried him in his own land at Timnath Serah in the mountains 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. NCV 10 After those people had died, their children grew up and did not know the Lord or what 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. NCV 11 So they did what the Lord said was wrong, and they worshiped the Baal idols. NIV 11 Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD and served the Baals. NCV 12 They quit following the Lord, the God of their ancestors who had brought them out of Egypt. They began to worship the gods of the people who lived around them, and that made the Lord angry. 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 NCV 13 The Israelites quit following the Lord and worshiped Baal and Ashtoreth. NIV 13 because they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths. NCV 14 The Lord was angry with the people of Israel, so he handed them over to robbers who took their possessions. He let their enemies who lived around them defeat them; they could not protect themselves. 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. NCV 15 When the Israelites went out to fight, they always lost, because the Lord was not with them. The Lord had sworn to them this would happen. So the Israelites suffered very much. 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. NCV 16 Then the Lord chose leaders called judges,nwho saved the Israelites from the robbers. NIV 16 Then the LORD raised up judges, who saved them out of the hands of these raiders. NCV 17 But the Israelites did not listen to their judges. They were not faithful to God but worshiped other gods instead. Their ancestors had obeyed the Lord's commands, but they quickly turned away and did not obey. 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. NCV 18 When their enemies hurt them, the Israelites cried for help. So the Lord felt sorry for them and sent judges to save them from their enemies. The Lord was with those judges all their lives. 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. NCV 19 But when the judges died, the Israelites again sinned and worshiped other gods. They became worse than their ancestors. The Israelites were very stubborn and refused to change their evil 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. NCV 20 So the Lord became angry with the Israelites. He said, "These people have broken the agreement I made with their ancestors. They have not listened to me. 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, NCV 21 I will no longer defeat the nations who were left when Joshua died. NIV 21 I will no longer drive out before them any of the nations Joshua left when he died. NCV 22 I will use them to test Israel, to see if Israel will keep the Lord's commands 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.” NCV 23 In the past the Lord had permitted those nations to stay in the land. He did not quickly force them out or help Joshua's army defeat them. 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.
