The Ammonites Oppress Israel

6Again the Israelites did evil in the LORD's sight. They served the images of Baal and Ashtoreth, and the gods of Aram, Sidon, Moab, Ammon, and Philistia. They abandoned the LORD and no longer served him at all.H1121H3478H6213H7451H3254H5869H3068H5647H1168H6252H430H758H430H6721H430H4124H430H1121H5983H430H6430H5800H3068H5647 7So the LORD burned with anger against Israel, and he turned them over to the Philistines and the Ammonites,H639H3068H2734H3478H4376H3027H6430H3027H1121H5983 8who began to oppress them that year. For eighteen years they oppressed all the Israelites east of the Jordan River in the land of the Amorites (that is, in Gilead).H8141H7492H7533H1121H3478H8083H6240H8141H1121H3478H5676H3383H776H567H1568 9The Ammonites also crossed to the west side of the Jordan and attacked Judah, Benjamin, and Ephraim. The Israelites were in great distress.H1121H5983H5674H3383H3898H3063H1144H1004H669H3478H3966H3334 10Finally, they cried out to the LORD for help, saying, "We have sinned against you because we have abandoned you as our God and have served the images of Baal."H1121H3478H2199H3068H559H2398H5800H430H5647H1168 11The LORD replied, "Did I not rescue you from the Egyptians, the Amorites, the Ammonites, the Philistines,H3068H559H1121H3478H4714H567H1121H5983H6430 12the Sidonians, the Amalekites, and the Maonites? When they oppressed you, you cried out to me for help, and I rescued you.H6722H6002H4584H3905H6817H3467H3027 13Yet you have abandoned me and served other gods. So I will not rescue you anymore.H5800H5647H312H430H3467H3254 14Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen! Let them rescue you in your hour of distress!"H3212H2199H430H977H1992H3467H6256H6869 15But the Israelites pleaded with the LORD and said, "We have sinned. Punish us as you see fit, only rescue us today from our enemies."H1121H3478H559H3068H2398H6213H5869H2896H5337H3117 16Then the Israelites put aside their foreign gods and served the LORD. And he was grieved by their misery.H5493H5236H430H7130H5647H3068H5315H7114H5999H3478 17At that time the armies of Ammon had gathered for war and were camped in Gilead, and the people of Israel assembled and camped at Mizpah.H1121H5983H6817H2583H1568H1121H3478H622H2583H4709 18The leaders of Gilead said to each other, "Whoever attacks the Ammonites first will become ruler over all the people of Gilead."H5971H8269H1568H559H376H7453H376H2490H3898H1121H5983H7218H3427H1568
