The Book of Judges is a book of Israel's History

Judges is the seventh book of the Old Testament and also the seventh book of Bible. Judges chronicles the events that took place from the time after Joshua's death to about sometime before Samuel the prophet's birth. During this time Israelwas falling away from God into idolatry, and God judged them for that by handing them over to their enemies.

When the enemies oppressed the people of Israel to the point where they cried out to God for deliverance, He raised up a man (and at one point a woman) to serve as a judge, who fought for the people to free them of their oppressors. However, when the judge died, the people fell back into idolatry again, and it became a repeated cycle. The primary judges featured in this book are Deborah, Gideon, Jephthah, and Samson.
