->''Whenever the LORD raised up judges for them, the LORD was with the judge, and He saved them from the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge. For the LORD was moved by their groaning because of those who afflicted them and oppressed them. But whenever the judge died, they turned back and were more corrupt than their fathers, going after other gods and bowing down to them. They did not drop any of their practices or their stubborn ways.''
-->– '''Judges 2:18-19'''

Everyone, that is, except for the tribe of Benjamin, who refused to turn over the men responsible for the gang rape and murder, which leads to a CivilWar between them and the rest of Israel.
