Judges 2:6 to 3:11.

Although the narrative is found in the seventh book in the Bible – Judges, these were people raised up by God to bring “deliverance” to the people of Israel. This period of history is like a see-saw where the Israelites would follow after the gods of the other 6 tribes left in the land after Joshua. So, as they went down God raised up a deliverer to bring them back up.
