A Monotonous Cycle

2:11 The Israelites did evil before 1  the Lord by worshiping 2  the Baals. 2:12 They abandoned the Lord God of their ancestors 3  who brought them out of the land of Egypt. They followed other gods – the gods of the nations who lived around them. They worshiped 4  them and made the Lord angry. 2:13 They abandoned the Lord and worshiped Baal and the Ashtars. 5 

2:14 The Lord was furious with Israel 6  and handed them over to robbers who plundered them. 7  He turned them over to 8  their enemies who lived around them. They could not withstand their enemiesattacks. 9  2:15 Whenever they went out to fight, 10  the Lord did them harm, 11  just as he had warned and solemnly vowed he would do. 12  They suffered greatly. 13
