Judges Cycle



"Then the Lord raised up judges who delivered them

from the hands of those who plundered them.

17Yet they did not listen to their judges...

They turned asside quickly from the way in which

their fathers had walked in obeying the commandments of the Lord;

they did not do as their fathers.

18...the Lord was moved to pity by their groaning because of those

who oppressed and afflicted them.

19But it came about when the judge died,

that they would turn back and act more corruptly than their fathers,

in following other gods to serve them and bow down to them;

they did not abandon their practices or their stubborn ways."

- Judges 2 : 16 - 19
