kjv@Judges:3:12@ And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD.
kjv@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.
kjv@Judges:3:14@ So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.
kjv@Judges:3:15@ But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.
kjv@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.
kjv@Judges:3:17@ And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man.
kjv@Judges:3:18@ And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present.
kjv@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.
kjv@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.
kjv@Judges:3:21@ And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:
kjv@Judges:3:22@ And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out.
kjv@Judges:3:23@ Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them.
kjv@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.
kjv@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.
kjv@Judges:3:26@ And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath.
kjv@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.
kjv@Judges:3:28@ And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD 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.
kjv@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.
kjv@Judges:3:30@ So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years.
