Judges 2:20

A Divine Decision

2:20 The Lord was furious with Israel. 5  He said, “This nation 6  has violated the terms of the agreement I made with their ancestors 7  by disobeying me. 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 Or “The Lord’s anger burned [or “raged”] against Israel.”

6 tn Heb “Because this nation.”

7 tn Heb “my covenant which I commanded their fathers.”

8 tn Heb “and has not listened to my voice.” The expression “to not listen to [God’s] voice” is idiomatic here for disobeying him.
