Bible: Judges 2:16-18

2:16 The Lord raised up leaders 1  who delivered them from these robbers. 2  2:17 But they did not obey 3  their leaders. Instead they prostituted themselves to other gods and worshiped 4  them. They quickly turned aside from the path 5  their ancestors 6  had walked. Their ancestors had obeyed the Lord’s commands, but they did not. 7  2:18 When the Lord raised up leaders for them, the Lord was with each leader and delivered the people 8  from their enemies while the leader remained alive. The Lord felt sorry for them 9  when they cried out in agony because of what their harsh oppressors did to them. 10
