Bible study 212 – Judges 2

God reveals that he left the Canaanites in the lands to test the Israelites: Will they drive the Canaanites off on their own, or start mixing with them and worshipping Baal? The northern tribes completely fail the test, and so God feels compelled to send down “judges” to save them. The judges, whom this book is named after, are basically spiritual and military leaders that will try to straighten out the rebellious Israelites.

Judges 2:13
They abandoned the Lord, and worshipped Baal and the Astartes.
