5 aThe sons of Israel lived among the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites;
6 and athey took their daughters for themselves as wives, and gave their own daughters to their sons, and served their gods.
8 Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, so that He sold them into the hands of Cushan-rishathaim king of 1Mesopotamia; and the sons of Israel served Cushan-rishathaim eight years.
9 When the sons of Israel cried to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer for the sons of Israel to deliver them, aOthniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother.
10 aThe Spirit of the Lord came upon him, and he judged Israel. When he went out to war, the Lord gave Cushan-rishathaim king of 1Mesopotamia into his hand, so that 2he prevailed over Cushan-rishathaim.
15 But when the sons of Israel acried to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer for them, Ehud the son of Gera, the Benjamite, a left-handed man. And the sons of Israel sent tribute by 1him to Eglon the king of Moab.
25 They waited until they 1became anxious; but behold, he did not open the doors of the roof chamber. Therefore they took the key and opened them, and behold, their master had fallen to the 2floor dead.
27 It came about when he had arrived, that ahe blew the trumpet in the hill country of Ephraim; and the sons of Israel went down with him from the hill country, and he was in front of them.
28 He said to them, “Pursue them, for the Lord has given your enemies the Moabites into your hands.” So they went down after him and seized athe fords of the Jordan opposite Moab, and did not allow anyone to cross.
31 After him came aShamgar the son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad; and he also saved Israel.
