nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.

and served Baalim:
JDG 2:12 And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought
them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of
the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them,
and provoked the LORD to anger.
