The Bible shows without ceasing that when people do evil they eventually suffer oppression. Think of how Egypt treated Israel and see what the Lord did to Egypt. Israel also provides plenty of examples:

When Ehud was dead, the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD. So the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor. The commander of his army was Sisera, who dwelt in Harosheth Hagoyim. And the children of Israel cried out to the LORD; for Jabin had nine hundred chariots of iron, and for twenty years he had harshly oppressed the children of Israel.

– Judges 4.1–3

How many times did the Bible record such things with Israel? The Bible also recorded many other nations going through the same things. Why don’t people learn from history?
