So the Lord was very angry with Israel and removed them from his presence. Only the tribe of Judah was left, 19 and even Judah did not keep the commands of the Lord their God. They followed the practices Israel had introduced.20 Therefore the Lord rejected all the people of Israel; he afflicted them and gave them into the hands of plunderers,until he thrust them from his presence.
