Bible reading for the day: Judges 3
- Judges 3:1, 4 NASB: “Now these are the nations which the Lord left, to test Israel by them ( that is, all who had not experienced any of the wars of Canaan; They were for testing Israel, to find out if they would obey the commandments of the Lord , which He had commanded their fathers through Moses.”
- Judges 3:8 NASB: “Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, so that He sold them into the hands of Cushan-rishathaim king of Mesopotamia; and the sons of Israel served Cushman rishathaim eight years.”
- The Israelites disobeyed God and He allowed them to become servants to the surrounding nations. They cried out to God and He delivered them by sending a judge. The first judge was Othniel, Caleb’s nephew.
