Now theseH428 are the nationsH1471 whichH834 the LORDH3068 left,H5117 to proveH5254 IsraelH3478 by them, even as many of Israel as had not knownH3045 allH3605 the warsH4421 of Canaan;H3667
OnlyH7535 that the generationsH1755 of the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 might know,H3045 to teachH3925 them war,H4421 atH7535 the leastH7535 such as beforeH6440 knewH3045 nothingH3808 thereof;
Namely, fiveH2568 lordsH5633 of the Philistines,H6430 and allH3605 the Canaanites,H3669 and the Sidonians,H6722 and the HivitesH2340 that dwelledH3427 in mountH2022 Lebanon,H3844 from mountH2022 BaalhermonH1179 to the enteringH935 in of Hamath.H2574
And they were to proveH5254 IsraelH3478 by them, to knowH3045 whether they would listenH8085 to the commandmentsH4687 of the LORD,H3068 whichH834 he commandedH6680 their fathersH1 by the handH3027 of Moses.H4872
And the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 dwelledH3427 amongH7130 the Canaanites,H3669 Hittites,H2850 and Amorites,H567 and Perizzites,H6522 and Hivites,H2340 and Jebusites:H2983
And they tookH3947 their daughtersH1323 to be their wives,H802 and gaveH5414 their daughtersH1323 to their sons,H1121 and servedH5647 their gods.H430
And the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 didH6213 evilH7451 in the sightH5869 of the LORD,H3068 and forgotH7911 the LORDH3068 their God,H430 and servedH5647 BaalimH1168 and the groves.H842
Therefore the angerH639 of the LORDH3068 was hotH2734 against Israel,H3478 and he soldH4376 them into the handH3027 of ChushanrishathaimH3573 kingH4428 of Mesopotamia:H763 and the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 servedH5647 ChushanrishathaimH3573 eightH8083 years.H8141
And when the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 criedH2199 to the LORD,H3068 the LORDH3068 raisedH6965 up a delivererH3467 to the childrenH1121 of Israel,H3478 who deliveredH3467 them, evenH853 OthnielH6274 the sonH1121 of Kenaz,H7073 Caleb'sH3612 youngerH6996 brother.H251
And the SpiritH7307 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 on him, and he judgedH8199 Israel,H3478 and wentH3318 out to war:H4421 and the LORDH3068 deliveredH5414 ChushanrishathaimH3573 kingH4428 of MesopotamiaH763 into his hand;H3027 and his handH3027 prevailedH5810 againstH5921 Chushanrishathaim.H3573
And the landH776 had restH8252 fortyH705 years.H8141 And OthnielH6274 the sonH1121 of KenazH7073 died.H4191
And the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 didH6213 evilH7451 againH3254 in the sightH5869 of the LORD:H3068 and the LORDH3068 strengthenedH2388 EglonH5700 the kingH4428 of MoabH4124 againstH5921 Israel,H3478 becauseH5921 H3588 they had doneH6213 evilH7451 in the sightH5869 of the LORD.H3068
And he gatheredH622 to him the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983 and Amalek,H6002 and wentH3212 and smoteH5221 Israel,H3478 and possessedH3423 the cityH5892 of palmH8558 trees.
So the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 servedH5647 EglonH5700 the kingH4428 of MoabH4124 eighteenH8083 H6240 years.H8141
But when the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 criedH2199 to the LORD,H3068 the LORDH3068 raisedH6965 them up a deliverer,H3467 EhudH261 the sonH1121 of Gera,H1617 a Benjamite,H1145 a manH376 left handed:H334 H3027 H3225 and by him the cH1121hildren ofH3478 IsraH7971el sent a H4503present tH5700o Eglon tH4428he king oH4124f Moab.
But EhudH261 madeH6213 him a daggerH2719 which had twoH8147 edges,H6366 of a cubitH1574 length;H753 and he did girdH2296 it underH8478 his raimentH4055 on his rightH3225 thigh.H3409
And he broughtH7126 the presentH4503 to EglonH5700 kingH4428 of Moab:H4124 and EglonH5700 was a veryH3966 fatH1277 man.H376
And whenH834 he had made an endH3615 to offerH7126 the present,H4503 he sentH7971 away the peopleH5971 that boreH5375 the present.H4503
But he himselfH1931 turnedH7725 againH7725 from the quarriesH6456 that were by Gilgal,H1537 and said,H559 I have a secretH5643 errandH1697 to you, O king:H4428 who said,H559 Keep silence.H2013 And allH3605 that stoodH5975 by him wentH3318 out from him.
And EhudH261 cameH935 to him; and he was sittingH3427 in a summerH4747 parlor,H5944 whichH834 he had for himself alone.H905 And EhudH261 said,H559 I have a messageH1697 from GodH430 to you. And he aroseH6965 out of his seat.H3678
And EhudH261 putH7971 forthH7971 his leftH8040 hand,H3027 and tookH3947 the daggerH2719 from his rightH3225 thigh,H3409 and thrustH8628 it into his belly:H990
And the haftH5325 alsoH1571 wentH935 in afterH310 the blade;H3851 and the fatH2459 closedH5462 on the blade,H3851 soH3588 that he could not drawH8025 the daggerH2719 out of his belly;H990 and the dirtH6574 cameH3318 out.
Then EhudH261 wentH3318 forthH3318 through the porch,H4528 and shutH5462 the doorsH1817 of the parlorH5944 on him, and lockedH5274 them.
When he was goneH3318 out, his servantsH5650 came;H935 and when they sawH7200 that, behold,H2009 the doorsH1817 of the parlorH5944 were locked,H5274 they said,H559 SurelyH389 he coversH5526 his feetH7272 in his summerH4747 chamber.H2315
And they tarriedH2342 tillH5704 they were ashamed:H954 and, behold,H2009 he openedH6605 not the doorsH1817 of the parlor;H5944 therefore they tookH3947 a key,H4668 and openedH6605 them: and, behold,H2009 their lordH113 was fallenH5307 down deadH4191 on the earth.H776
And EhudH261 escapedH4422 whileH5704 they tarried,H4102 and passedH5674 beyondH5674 the quarries,H6456 and escapedH4422 to Seirath.H8167
And it cameH1961 to pass, when he was come,H935 that he blewH8628 a trumpetH7782 in the mountainH2022 of Ephraim,H669 and the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 wentH3381 downH3381 with him from the mount,H2022 and he beforeH6440 them.
And he saidH559 to them, FollowH7291 afterH310 me: for the LORDH3068 has deliveredH5414 your enemiesH341 the MoabitesH4124 into your hand.H3027 And they wentH3381 downH3381 afterH310 him, and tookH3920 the fordsH4569 of JordanH3383 toward Moab,H4124 and sufferedH5414 not a manH376 to passH5674 over.H5674
And they slewH5221 of MoabH4124 at that timeH6256 about tenH6235 thousandH505 men,H376 allH3605 lusty,H8082 and allH3605 menH376 of valor;H2428 and there escapedH4422 not a man.H376
So MoabH4124 was subduedH3665 that dayH3117 underH8478 the handH3027 of Israel.H3478 And the landH776 had restH8252 fourscoreH8084 years.H8141
And afterH310 him was ShamgarH8044 the sonH1121 of Anath,H6067 which slewH5221 of the PhilistinesH6430 sixH8337 hundredH3967 menH376 with an oxH1241 goad:H4451 and he alsoH1571 deliveredH3467 Israel.H3478
