God had wanted the Israelites to drive the people completely out of the Promised Land. But they didn’t, and all these different tribes of people were now living with the Israelites in the Promised Land. These people worked as the Israelites’ slaves, which of course, now made God’s people weak. This is going to be a very important point to remember as we move through Judges to understand where the Israelites find themselves.
“When Israel grew strong, they put the Canaanites to forced labor, but did not drive them out completely.”Judges 1:28
