Judges 6:6-10

Context
6:6 Israel was so severely weakened by Midian that the Israelites cried out to the Lord for help.

6:7 When the Israelites cried out to the Lord for help because of Midian, 6:8 he 1  sent a prophet 2  to the Israelites. He said to them, “This is what the Lord God of Israel says: ‘I brought you up from Egypt 3  and took you out of that place of slavery. 4  6:9 I rescued you from Egypt’s power 5  and from the power of all who oppressed you. I drove them out before you and gave their land to you. 6:10 I said to you, “I am the Lord your God! Do not worship 6  the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are now living!” But you have disobeyed me.’” 7 

1 tn Heb “the Lord”; the proper name has been replaced by the pronoun (“he”) in the translation for stylistic reasons.

2 tn Heb “a man, a prophet.” Hebrew idiom sometimes puts a generic term before a more specific designation.

3 tc Some ancient witnesses read “from the land of Egypt.” מֵאֶרֶץ (meerets, “from the land [of]”) could have been accidentally omitted by homoioarcton (note the following מִמִּצְרַיִם [mimmitsrayim, “from Egypt”]).

4 tn Heb “of the house of slavery.”

5 tn Heb “hand” (also a second time later in this verse).

6 tn Heb “Do not fear.”

7 tn Heb “you have not listened to my voice.”
