10 And after Abimelech there arose to ||defend Israel Tola the son of Puah, the son of Dodo, a man of Issachar; and he dwelt in Shamir in amount Ephraim. *And he judged Israel twenty and three years, and died, and was buried in Shamir.

And after him arose Jair, a Gileadite, and judged Israel twenty and two years. And he had thirty sons that brode on thirty ass colts, and they had thirty cities, cwhich are called ||Havoth-jair unto this day, which are in the land of Gilead. *And Jair died, and was buried in Camon.

And dthe children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord, and eserved Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of fZidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the gPhilistines, and hforsook the Lord, and served not him. And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and he isold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of jthe children of Ammon. And kthat year they lvexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead. Moreover jthe children of Ammon passed over Jordan to fight also against Judah, and against Benjamin, and against the house of Ephraim; mso that Israel was sore distressed. 10 nAnd the children of Israel cried unto the Lord, saying, We have sinned against thee, both because hwe have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim. 11 And the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Did not I deliver you from othe Egyptians, and from pthe Amorites, from qthe children of Ammon, and from rthe Philistines? 12 The Zidonians also, and sthe Amalekites, and tthe Maonites, udid oppress you; and ye cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand. 13 Yet wye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more. 14 Go and xcry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation. 15 And the children of Israel said unto the Lord, We have sinned: do thou unto us whatsoever seemeth good unto thee; deliver us only, we pray thee, this day. 16 And they put away the strange gods from among them, and served the Lord: yand his soul zwas grieved for the misery of Israel. 17 Then the children of Ammon were gathered together, and encamped in Gilead. And the children of Israel assembled themselves together, and encamped in aMizpeh. 18 And the people and princes of Gilead said one to another, What man is he that will begin to fight against the children of Ammon? bhe shall be head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.
