SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:1 Â¶ Mas los hijos de Israel hicieron lo malo en los ojos del SEÑOR; y el SEÑOR los entregó en las manos de Madián por siete años.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 6:1 Verse 1. Delivered them unto the hand of Midian] The Midianites were among the most ancient and inveterate of the enemies of Israel. They joined with the Moabites to seduce them to idolatry, and were nearly extirpated by them; Num. xxxi. 1-12. The Midianites dwelt on the eastern borders of the Dead Sea, and their capital was Arnon.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord , etc.] After the death of Deborah and Barak, during whose life they kept to the pure worship of God, and who, perhaps, lived pretty near the close of the forty years’ rest, or of the twenty years from their victory over Jabin; but they dying, the children of Israel fell into idolatry, for that that was the evil they did appears from Judges 6:10 , even worshipping the gods of the Amorites: and the Lord delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years : this was not the Midian where Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses, lived, which lay more southward, but that which joined to Moab, and was more eastward. This people had been destroyed by the Israelites in the times of Moses, in their way to the land of Canaan, Numbers 31:1 wherefore they might bear them a grudge, and now took the opportunity to revenge themselves on them, God permitting them so to do for their sins; and though the destruction of this people by Israel was very general, yet as some of them might make their escape, and afterwards return to their own land, and this being about two hundred years ago, might, with others joining them, repeople their country by this time, and become strong and powerful.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-6 - Israel's sin was renewed, and Israel's troubles were repeated. Let all that sin expect to suffer. The Israelites hid themselves in dens an caves; such was the effect of a guilty conscience. Sin dispirits men The invaders left no food for Israel, except what was taken into the caves. They prepared that for Baal with which God should have bee served, now God justly sends an enemy to take it away in the seaso thereof.
