Judges 2

NIRV 1 The angel of the LORD went up from Gilgal to Bokim. There he spoke to the people of Israel. "I brought you up out of Egypt," he said. "I led you into this land. It is the land I promised with an oath to give to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I said, 'I will never break the covenant I made 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, NIRV 2 So you must not make a covenant with the people of this land. Instead, you must tear down their altars.' "But you have disobeyed me. Why did you do it? 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? NIRV 3 I have something to tell you. I will not drive those people out to make room for you. They will be like thorns in your sides. Their gods will be a trap to 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.’ ” NIRV 4 The angel of the LORD spoke those things to all of the people of Israel. Then the people began to sob out loud. NIV 4 When the angel of the LORD had spoken these things to all the Israelites, the people wept aloud, NIRV 5 So that place was called Bokim. The people offered sacrifices to the LORD there. NIV 5 and they called that place Bokim. There they offered sacrifices to the LORD. NIRV 6 Joshua sent the people of Israel away. Then they went to take over the land. All of them went to their own shares of land. NIV 6 After Joshua had dismissed the Israelites, they went to take possession of the land, each to their own inheritance. NIRV 7 The people served the LORD as long as Joshua lived. They also served him as long as the elders lived. Those were the elders who lived longer than Joshua did. They had seen all of the great things the LORD 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. NIRV 8 Joshua, the servant of the Lord, died. He was the son of Nun. He was 110 years old when he died. NIV 8 Joshua son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died at the age of a hundred and ten. NIRV 9 His people buried his body on his own property at Timnath Heres. It's north of Mount Gaash in the hill country of Ephraim. 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. NIRV 10 All of the people of Joshua's time joined the members of their families who had already died. Then those who were born after them grew up. They didn't know the Lord. They didn't know 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. NIRV 11 The people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the Lord. They served the gods that were named after Baal. NIV 11 Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD and served the Baals. NIRV 12 They deserted the Lord, the God of their people. He had brought them out of Egypt. But now the people of Israel followed other gods and worshiped them. They served the gods of the nations that were around them. They 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 NIRV 13 because they deserted him. They served Baal. They also served the goddesses that were named after Ashtoreth. NIV 13 because they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths. NIRV 14 The LORD became angry with Israel. So he handed them over to robbers. The robbers stole everything from them. He gave them over to their enemies who were all around them. Israel wasn't able to fight against them anymore and win. 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. NIRV 15 When Israel went out to fight, the LORD's power was against them. He let their enemies win the battle over them. The LORD had warned them with an oath that it would happen. And now they were suffering terribly. 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. NIRV 16 Then the LORD gave them leaders. The leaders saved them from the power of those robbers. NIV 16 Then the LORD raised up judges, who saved them out of the hands of these raiders. NIRV 17 But the people wouldn't listen to their leaders. They weren't faithful to the Lord. They joined themselves to other gods and worshiped them. They didn't obey the LORD's commands as their people before them had done. They quickly turned away from the path their people had taken. 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. NIRV 18 When the LORD gave them a leader, he was with that leader. He saved the people from the power of their enemies. He did it as long as the leader lived. He was very sorry for the people. They groaned because of what their enemies did to them. The enemies beat them down. They treated them badly. 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. NIRV 19 But when the leader died, the people returned to their evil ways. The things they did were even more sinful than the things their people before them had done. They followed other gods. They served them. They worshiped them. They refused to give up their evil practices. They wouldn't change 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. NIRV 20 So the LORD's anger burned against the people of Israel. He said, "This nation has broken my covenant. I made it with their people of long ago. But this nation has 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, NIRV 21 Joshua left some nations in the land when he died. I will not drive those nations out to make room for you anymore. NIV 21 I will no longer drive out before them any of the nations Joshua left when he died. NIRV 22 I will use them to put Israel to the test. I will see whether Israel will live the way I want them to. I will see whether they will follow my path, just as their people did long ago." 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.” NIRV 23 The LORD had let those nations remain in the land. He didn't drive them out right away. He didn't hand them over to 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.
