Judges 2:1: And the
angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim. And he said: '...I made you to
go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I swore unto your
fathers; and I said: I will never break My covenant with you;
2:2 and ye shall make no covenant with the
inhabitants of this land; ye shall break down their altars; but ye have not
hearkened unto My voice; what is this ye have done? ....
2:4 And it came to pass, when the angel of the LORD
spoke these words unto all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up
their voice, and wept.
2:5 And they
called the name of that place Bochim; and they sacrificed there unto the LORD.
