Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.
Nevertheless the LORD raised up judges, who delivered them out of the hand of those that plundered them.
They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?
For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came as grasshoppers for multitude; for both they and their camels were without number: and they entered into the land to destroy it.
And when they forgot the LORD their God, he sold them into the hand of Sisera, captain of the host of Hazor, and into the hand of the Philistines, and into the hand of the king of Moab, and they fought against them.
Now there was no blacksmith found throughout all the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears:
Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.
