Book 07 : NEVIIM - JUDGES - Chapter 002


And the angel of HaShem came up from Gilgal to Bochim. And he said: '...I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I swore unto your fathers; and I said: I will never break My covenant with you


and ye shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall break down their altars; but ye have not hearkened unto My voice; what is this ye have done


Wherefore I also said: I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be unto you as snares, and their gods shall be a trap unto you.


And it came to pass, when the angel of HaShem spoke these words unto all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their voice, and wept


And they called the name of that place Bochim; and they sacrificed there unto HaShem


Now when Joshua had sent the people away, the children of Israel went every man unto his inheritance to possess the land


And the people served HaShem all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great work of HaShem, that He had wrought for Israel


And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of HaShem, died, being a hundred and ten years old


And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnath-heres, in the hill-country of Ephraim, on the north of the mountain of Gaash


And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers; and there arose another generation after them, that knew not HaShem, nor yet the work which He had wrought for Israel


And the children of Israel did that which was evil in the sight of HaShem, and served the Baalim


And they forsook HaShem, the G-d of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the peoples that were round about them, and worshipped them; and they provoked HaShem


And they forsook HaShem, and served Baal and the Ashtaroth


And the anger of HaShem was kindled against Israel, and He delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and He gave them over into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies


Whithersoever they went out, the hand of HaShem was against them for evil, as HaShem had spoken, and as HaShem had sworn unto them; and they were sore distressed


And HaShem raised up judges, who saved them out of the hand of those that spoiled them


And yet they hearkened not unto their judges, for they went astray after other gods, and worshipped them; they turned aside quickly out of the way wherein their fathers walked, obeying the commandments of HaShem; they did not so


And when HaShem raised them up judges, then HaShem was with the judge, and saved them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge; for it repented HaShem because of their groaning by reason of them that oppressed them and crushed them


But it came to pass, when the judge was dead, that they turned back, and dealt more corruptly than their fathers, in following other gods to serve them, and to worship them; they left nothing undone of their practices, nor of their stubborn way


And the anger of HaShem was kindled against Israel; and He said: 'Because this nation have transgressed My covenant which I commanded their fathers, and have not hearkened unto My voice


I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of the nations that Joshua left when he died


that by them I may prove Israel, whether they will keep the way of HaShem to walk therein, as their fathers did keep it, or not.


So HaShem left those nations, without driving them out hastily; neither delivered He them into the hand of Joshua
