1 And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the Lord: and he delivered them into the hand of Madian seven years. 2 And they were grievously oppressed by them. And they made themselves dens and eaves in the mountains, and strong holds to resist. 3 And when Israel had sown, Madian and Amalec, and the rest of the eastern nations came up: 4 And pitching their tents among them, wasted all things as they were in the blade even to the entrance of Gaza: and they left nothing at all in Israel for sustenance of life, nor sheep, nor oxen, nor asses. 5 For they and all their flocks came with their tents, and like locusts filled all places, an innumerable multitude of men, and of camels, wasting whatsoever they touched.
6 And Israel was humbled exceedingly in the sight of Madian. 7 And he cried to the Lord desiring help against the Madianites. 8 And he sent unto them a prophet, and he spoke: Thus saith the Lord the God of Israel: I made you to come up out of Egypt, and brought you out of the house of bondage, 9 And delivered you out of the hands of the Egyptians, and of all the enemies that afflicted you: and I cast them out at your coming in, and gave you their land. 10 And I said: I am the Lord your God, fear not the gods of the Amorrhites, in whose land you dwell. And you would not hear my voice.
