Bible Verse of the Week

"The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD, and for seven years he gave them into the hands of the Midianites. Because the power of Midian was so oppressive, the Israelites prepared shelters for themselves in mountain clefts, caves and strongholds. Whenever the Israelites planted their crops, the Midianites, Amalekites and other eastern peoples invaded the country. Midian so impoverished the Israelites that they cried out to the LORD for help." (Judges 6:1-3; 6)
