Judges 2:17-18

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