Bible Commentary for Judges 2:12

Wesley's Notes for Judges 2:12


2:10 Knew not - Which had no experimental, nor serious and affectionate knowledge of God, or of his works.

2:11 In the sight - Which notes the heinousness and impudence of their sins, above other peoples; because God's presence was with them, and his eye upon them in a peculiar manner, which also they were not ignorant of, and therefore were guilty of more contempt of God than other people. Baalim - False gods. He useth the plural number, because the gods of the Canaanites, and adjoining nations, which Israel worshipped, were most of them called by the name of Baal.

2:13 Baal and Ashtaroth - That is, the sun and moon, whom many Heathens worshipped, tho' under divers names; and so they ran into that error which God had so expressly warned them against, #Deut 4:19|. Baalim signifies lords, and Ashtaroth, blessed ones, he - gods and she - gods. When they forsook Jehovah, they had gods many and lords many, as a luxuriant fancy pleased to multiply them.

2:14 Sold them - That is, delivered them up, as the seller doth his commodities unto the buyer.
