Summary – The book of Judges, which means "Champions" or "Rescuers", covers the period from the death of Joshua to the birth of Samuel. This was a time of great immorality as the result of the failure of the Israelites to drive out the inhabitants of the land. There were "judges" set up by God who were to direct and judge the affairs and people of Israel. The book of Judges closes by setting the stage for the people’s desire for a human king.
