Judges 2:14-15

Context

2:14 The Lord was furious with Israel 1  and handed them over to robbers who plundered them. 2  He turned them over to 3  their enemies who lived around them. They could not withstand their enemies’ attacks. 4  2:15 Whenever they went out to fight, 5  the Lord did them harm, 6  just as he had warned and solemnly vowed he would do. 7  They suffered greatly. 8 

1 tn Or “The Lord’s anger burned [or “raged”] against Israel.”

2 tn Heb “robbers who robbed them.” (The verb שָׁסָה [shasah] appears twice in the verse.)

sn The expression robbers who plundered them is a derogatory reference to the enemy nations, as the next line indicates.

3 tn Heb “sold them into the hands of.”

4 tn The word “attacks” is supplied in the translation both for clarity and for stylistic reasons.

5 tn The expression “to fight” is interpretive.

6 tn Heb “the Lord’s hand was against them for harm.”

7 tn Heb “just as he had said and just as he had sworn to them.”

8 tn Or “they experienced great distress.”
