Judges 2:1
2:1 And an {a} angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim,
    and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought
    you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I
    said, I will never break my covenant with you.

    (a) That is, messenger, or prophet, as some think, Phinehas.

2:6 And when Joshua had {b} let the people go, the children of

Judges 2:9
2:9 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in {d}
    Timnathheres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of

    (d) Heres, by turning the letters backward is Sereh, as in
        Joshua 24:30.

Judges 2:11

     LORD, and served {e} Baalim:

     (e) That is, all manner of idols.

     (f) These were idols, which had the form of a ewe or sheep
         among the Sidonians.

Judges 2:15
2:15 {g} Whithersoever they went out, the {h} hand of the LORD
     was against them for evil, as the LORD had said, and as the
     LORD had sworn unto them: and they were greatly distressed.

     (g) In all their enterprises.
     (h) The vengeance.

Judges 2:17
2:17 And yet they would not hearken unto their judges, but they
     went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves unto
     them: they turned quickly out of the {i} way which their
     fathers walked in, obeying the commandments of the LORD;
     [but] they did not so.

     (i) Meaning, from the true religion.

Judges 2:18
2:18 And when the LORD raised them up judges, then the LORD was
     with the judge, and delivered them out of the hand of their

     (k) Seeing their cruelty.

Judges 2:22
2:22 That through them I may {m} prove Israel, whether they will
     keep the way of the LORD to walk therein, as their fathers
     did keep [it], or not.

     (m) So that both outward enemies and false prophets are but
         a trial to prove our faith, Deuteronomy 13:3, Judges 3:1.
