The Lord’s Patience Runs Short
10:6 The Israelites again did evil in the Lord’s sight. 1 They worshiped 2 the Baals and the Ashtars, 3 as well as the gods of Syria, Sidon, 4 Moab, the Ammonites, and the Philistines. 5 They abandoned the Lord and did not worship 6 him. 10:7 The Lord was furious with Israel 7 and turned them over to 8 the Philistines and Ammonites. 10:8 They ruthlessly oppressed 9 the Israelites that eighteenth year 10 – that is, all the Israelites living east of the Jordan in Amorite country in Gilead.
