    Barnes' Notes on Judges 2:2

    The two articles of the covenant here specified (compare margin references) are those which the Israelites had at this time broken. The other important prohibition Deuteronomy 7:3 is not specified by the Angel, and this is an indication that at the time the Angel spoke, intermarriages with the pagan spoken of Judges 3:6 had not taken place; and this again is another evidence of the early date of this occurrence.
