Judges 1-3:30 (New Living Translation)

Judah and Simeon Conquer the Land
Israel Fails to Conquer the Land
Judah and Simeon were the only tribes that successfully drove everyone from their land.

The Lord’s Messenger Comes to Bokim
The Death of Joshua
Israel Disobeys the Lord
After Joshua and the other leaders die, the Israelites no longer remember God or what He has done for them and they turn to worshipping other gods.  God turns them over to their sin and to their enemies.
The Lord Rescues His People
God appointed judges to rule and the people served God until the judge died and then they went into sin worse than before. 

The Nations Left in Canaan
Othniel Becomes Israel’s Judge
Ehud Becomes Israel’s Judge
He kills King Eglon and there is peace for 80 years.
