Judges 3:6-8 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
6 They married the daughters of those people. They gave their own daughters to the sons of those people. And they served the gods of those people.
7 The Israelites did what was evil in the sight of the Lord. They forgot the Lord their God. They served gods that were named Baal. They also served female gods that were named Asherah. 8 So the Lord was very angry with Israel. He handed them over to the power of Cushan-Rishathaim, the king of Aram Naharaim. For eight years Israel was under his rule.
