Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 After Abimelech rebelled to save Israel, Foul, son of Fui, son of Dodov, from the tribe of Issakharov. He lived in Shamir on Mount Ephraim.
2 He was a judge of Israel for twenty-three years, and died and was buried in Shamir.
3 After him Jairus rebelled from Gilead and was a judge of Israel for twenty-two years.
4 He had thirty sons riding thirty young donkeys, and they had thirty cities; they are still called the villages of Jairus in the land of Gilead.
5 And Jairus died and was buried in Kamon.

6 The sons of Israel continued to do evil in the sight of the Lord and served the Baals and Astartes, and the gods of Aramaic, and the gods of Sidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines; but the Lord was left and did not serve him.
7 And the anger of the Lord kindled against Israel, and He delivered them into the hands of the Philistines and into the hands of the Ammonites;
eight they pressed and tormented the sons of Israel for eighteen years from that year, all the sons of Israel on the other side of the Jordan in the land of Amor, which is in Gilead.
nine Finally, the Ammonites crossed the Jordan to wage war with Judah and Benjamin and with the house of Ephraim. And it was very close to the sons of Israel.

ten And the sons of Israel cried unto the Lord, and said, We have sinned against Thee, because we have forsaken our God and have served the Baals.
eleven And the Lord said to the sons of Israel: Have the Egyptians, and the Amorites, and the Ammonites, and the Philistines oppressed you,
12 and the Sidonians, and the Amalekites, and the Moabites, and when you cried out to Me, did I not save you from their hands?
13 And you left Me and began to serve other gods; for that I will not save you:
fourteen go, cry out to the gods whom you have chosen, may they save you in your close time.
fifteen And the sons of Israel said unto the Lord, We have sinned; do with us whatever you want, only deliver us now.
16 And they rejected the alien gods from themselves and began to serve the Lord. And his soul did not suffer the suffering of Israel.
17 The Ammonites gathered and pitched in Gilead; the sons of Israel also gathered and camped at Mizpeh.
18 The people [and] the princes of Gilead said to each other: whoever starts a war against the Ammonites will be the ruler of all the inhabitants of Gilead.
