strkjv@Judges:3:1 @ Now these are the nations which the LORD Y@hovah# left, to prove Israel by them, even as many of Israel as had not known all the wars of Canaan K@na'an#;
strkjv@Judges:3:2 @ Only that the generations of the children of Israel might know, to teach them war, at the least such as before knew nothing thereof;
strkjv@Judges:3:3 @ Namely, five lords of the Philistines P@lishtiy#, and all the Canaanites K@na'aniy#, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites that dwelt in mount Lebanon L@banown#, from mount Baalhermon Ba'alunto the entering in of Hamath.
strkjv@Judges:3:4 @ And they were to prove Israel by them, to know whether they would hearken unto the commandments of the LORD Y@hovah#, which he commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses.
strkjv@Judges:3:5 @ And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites K@na'aniy#, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites P@rizziy#, and Hivites, and Jebusites:
strkjv@Judges:3:6 @ And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods.
strkjv@Judges:3:7 @ And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD Y@hovah#, and forgat the LORD Y@hovah# their God, and served Baalim and the groves.
strkjv@Judges:3:8 @ Therefore the anger of the LORD Y@hovah# was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim Kuwshanking of Mesopotamia #Aram: and the children of Israel served Chushanrishathaim Kuwshaneight years.
strkjv@Judges:3:9 @ And when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD Y@hovah#, the LORD Y@hovah# raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, even Othniel the son of Kenaz Q@naz#, Calebs younger brother.
strkjv@Judges:3:10 @ And the Spirit of the LORD Y@hovah# came upon him, and he judged Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD Y@hovah# delivered Chushanrishathaim Kuwshanking of Mesopotamia #Araminto his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim Kuwshan.
strkjv@Judges:3:11 @ And the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of Kenaz Q@naz# died.
strkjv@Judges:3:12 @ And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD Y@hovah#: and the LORD Y@hovah# strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD Y@hovah#.
strkjv@Judges:3:13 @ And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel, and possessed the city of palm trees #Iyr hat-T@mariym#.
strkjv@Judges:3:14 @ So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen sh^moneh# years.
strkjv@Judges:3:15 @ But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD Y@hovah#, the LORD Y@hovah# raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite Ben-y^miyniy#, a man lefthanded #itter#: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.
strkjv@Judges:3:16 @ But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.
strkjv@Judges:3:17 @ And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very m@#od# fat man.
strkjv@Judges:3:18 @ And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present.
strkjv@Judges:3:19 @ But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him.
strkjv@Judges:3:20 @ And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat.
strkjv@Judges:3:21 @ And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:
strkjv@Judges:3:22 @ And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon b@#ad# the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out.
strkjv@Judges:3:23 @ Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them.
strkjv@Judges:3:24 @ When he was gone out, his servants came; and when they saw that, behold, the doors of the parlour were locked, they said, Surely he covereth his feet in his summer chamber.
strkjv@Judges:3:25 @ And they tarried till they were ashamed: and, behold, he opened not the doors of the parlour; therefore they took a key, and opened them: and, behold, their lord was fallen down dead on the earth.
strkjv@Judges:3:26 @ And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath S@#iyrah#.
strkjv@Judges:3:27 @ And it came to pass, when he was come, that he blew a trumpet in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with him from the mount, and he before them.
strkjv@Judges:3:28 @ And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD Y@hovah# hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over.
strkjv@Judges:3:29 @ And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man.
strkjv@Judges:3:30 @ So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years.
strkjv@Judges:3:31 @ And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines P@lishtiy# six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel.
