Chapter 3

  1. 1. Now these are the nations
    H1471
    which the LORD
    H3068
    left,
    H3240
    to prove
    H5254
    Israel
    H3478
    by them, even as many of Israel as had not known
    H3045
    all the wars
    H4421
    of Canaan;
    H3667
  2. 2. Only that
    H7535
    the generations
    H1755
    of the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    might know,
    H3045
    to teach
    H3925
    them war,
    H4421
    at the least such as before
    H6440
    knew
    H3045
    nothing thereof;
  3. 3. Namely, five
    H2568
    lords
    H5633
    of the Philistines,
    H6430
    and all the Canaanites,
    H3669
    and the Sidonians,
    H6722
    and the Hivites
    H2340
    that dwelt
    H3427
    in mount
    H2022
    Lebanon,
    H3844
    from mount
    H2022
    Baalhermon
    H1179
    unto the entering in
    H935
    of Hamath.
    H2574
  4. 4. And they were to prove
    H5254
    Israel
    H3478
    by them, to know
    H3045
    whether they would hearken
    H8085
    unto the commandments
    H4687
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    which he commanded
    H6680
    their fathers
    H1
    by the hand
    H3027
    of Moses.
    H4872
  5. 5. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    dwelt
    H3427
    among
    H7130
    the Canaanites,
    H3669
    Hittites,
    H2850
    and Amorites,
    H567
    and Perizzites,
    H6522
    and Hivites,
    H2340
    and Jebusites:
    H2983
  6. 6. And they took
    H3947
    their daughters
    H1323
    to be their wives,
    H802
    and gave
    H5414
    their daughters
    H1323
    to their sons,
    H1121
    and served
    H5647
    their gods.
    H430
  7. 7. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    did
    H6213
    evil
    H7451
    in the sight
    H5869
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and forgat
    H7911
    the LORD
    H3068
    their God,
    H430
    and served
    H5647
    Baalim
    H1168
    and the groves.
    H842
  8. 8. Therefore the anger
    H639
    of the LORD
    H3068
    was hot
    H2734
    against Israel,
    H3478
    and he sold
    H4376
    them into the hand
    H3027
    of Chushanrishathaim
    H3573
    king
    H4428
    of Mesopotamia:
    H763
    and the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    served
    H5647
    Chushanrishathaim
    H3573
    eight
    H8083
    years.
    H8141
  9. 9. And when the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    cried
    H2199
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    the LORD
    H3068
    raised up
    H6965
    a deliverer
    H3467
    to the children
    H1121
    of Israel,
    H3478
    who delivered
    H3467
    them, even Othniel
    H6274
    the son
    H1121
    of Kenaz,
    H7073
    Caleb's
    H3612
    younger
    H6996
    brother.
    H251
  10. 10. And the Spirit
    H7307
    of the LORD
    H3068
    came upon him, and he judged
    H8199
    Israel,
    H3478
    and went out
    H3318
    to war:
    H4421
    and the LORD
    H3068
    delivered
    H5414
    Chushanrishathaim
    H3573
    king
    H4428
    of Mesopotamia
    H763
    into his hand;
    H3027
    and his hand
    H3027
    prevailed
    H5810
    against Chushanrishathaim.
    H3573
  11. 11. And the land
    H776
    had rest
    H8252
    forty
    H705
    years.
    H8141
    And Othniel
    H6274
    the son
    H1121
    of Kenaz
    H7073
    died.
    H4191
  12. 12. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    did
    H6213
    evil
    H7451
    again
    H3254
    in the sight
    H5869
    of the LORD:
    H3068
    and the LORD
    H3068
    strengthened
    H2388
    Eglon
    H5700
    the king
    H4428
    of Moab
    H4124
    against Israel,
    H3478
    because they had done
    H6213
    evil
    H7451
    in the sight
    H5869
    of the LORD.
    H3068
  13. 13. And he gathered
    H622
    unto him the children
    H1121
    of Ammon
    H5983
    and Amalek,
    H6002
    and went
    H3212
    and smote
    H5221
    Israel,
    H3478
    and possessed
    H3423
    the city
    H5892
    of palm trees.
    H8558
    H5899
  14. 14. So the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    served
    H5647
    Eglon
    H5700
    the king
    H4428
    of Moab
    H4124
    eighteen
    H6240
    H8083
    years.
    H8141
  15. 15. But when the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    cried
    H2199
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    the LORD
    H3068
    raised them up
    H6965
    a deliverer,
    H3467
    Ehud
    H164
    the son
    H1121
    of Gera,
    H1617
    a Benjamite,
    H1145
    a man
    H376
    lefthanded:
    H3225
    H334
    and by him
    H3027
    the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    sent
    H7971
    a present
    H4503
    unto Eglon
    H5700
    the king
    H4428
    of Moab.
    H4124
  16. 16. But Ehud
    H164
    made
    H6213
    him a dagger
    H2719
    which had two
    H8147
    edges,
    H6366
    of a cubit
    H1574
    length;
    H753
    and he did gird
    H2296
    it under his raiment
    H4055
    upon his right
    H3225
    thigh.
    H3409
  17. 17. And he brought
    H7126
    the present
    H4503
    unto Eglon
    H5700
    king
    H4428
    of Moab:
    H4124
    and Eglon
    H5700
    was a very
    H3966
    fat
    H1277
    man.
    H376
  18. 18. And when he had made an end
    H3615
    to offer
    H7126
    the present,
    H4503
    he sent away
    H7971
    the people
    H5971
    that bare
    H5375
    the present.
    H4503
  19. 19. But he himself turned again
    H7725
    from the quarries
    H6456
    that were by Gilgal,
    H1537
    and said,
    H559
    I have a secret
    H5643
    errand
    H1697
    unto thee, O king:
    H4428
    who said,
    H559
    Keep silence.
    H2013
    And all that stood
    H5975
    by him went out
    H3318
    from him.
  20. 20. And Ehud
    H164
    came
    H935
    unto him; and he was sitting
    H3427
    in a summer
    H4747
    parlour,
    H5944
    which he had for himself alone. And Ehud
    H164
    said,
    H559
    I have a message
    H1697
    from God
    H430
    unto thee. And he arose
    H6965
    out of his seat.
    H3678
  21. 21. And Ehud
    H164
    put forth
    H7971
    his left
    H8040
    hand,
    H3027
    and took
    H3947
    the dagger
    H2719
    from his right
    H3225
    thigh,
    H3409
    and thrust
    H8628
    it into his belly:
    H990
  22. 22. And the haft
    H5325
    also went in
    H935
    after
    H310
    the blade;
    H3851
    and the fat
    H2459
    closed
    H5462
    upon
    H1157
    the blade,
    H3851
    so that he could not draw
    H8025
    the dagger
    H2719
    out of his belly;
    H990
    and the dirt
    H6574
    came out.
    H3318
  23. 23. Then Ehud
    H164
    went forth
    H3318
    through the porch,
    H4528
    and shut
    H5462
    the doors
    H1817
    of the parlour
    H5944
    upon him, and locked
    H5274
    them.
  24. 24. When he was gone out,
    H3318
    his servants
    H5650
    came;
    H935
    and when they saw
    H7200
    that, behold, the doors
    H1817
    of the parlour
    H5944
    were locked,
    H5274
    they said,
    H559
    Surely he covereth
    H5526
    his feet
    H7272
    in his summer
    H4747
    chamber.
    H2315
  25. 25. And they tarried
    H2342
    till they were ashamed:
    H954
    and, behold, he opened
    H6605
    not the doors
    H1817
    of the parlour;
    H5944
    therefore they took
    H3947
    a key,
    H4668
    and opened
    H6605
    them: and, behold, their lord
    H113
    was fallen down
    H5307
    dead
    H4191
    on the earth.
    H776
  26. 26. And Ehud
    H164
    escaped
    H4422
    while they tarried,
    H4102
    and passed beyond
    H5674
    the quarries,
    H6456
    and escaped
    H4422
    unto Seirath.
    H8167
  27. 27. And it came to pass, when he was come,
    H935
    that he blew
    H8628
    a trumpet
    H7782
    in the mountain
    H2022
    of Ephraim,
    H669
    and the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    went down
    H3381
    with him from the mount,
    H2022
    and he before
    H6440
    them.
  28. 28. And he said
    H559
    unto them, Follow
    H7291
    after
    H310
    me: for the LORD
    H3068
    hath delivered
    H5414
    your enemies
    H341
    the Moabites
    H4124
    into your hand.
    H3027
    And they went down
    H3381
    after
    H310
    him, and took
    H3920
    the fords
    H4569
    of Jordan
    H3383
    toward Moab,
    H4124
    and suffered
    H5414
    not a man
    H376
    to pass over.
    H5674
  29. 29. And they slew
    H5221
    of Moab
    H4124
    at that time
    H6256
    about ten
    H6235
    thousand
    H505
    men,
    H376
    all lusty,
    H8082
    and all men
    H376
    of valour;
    H2428
    and there escaped
    H4422
    not a man.
    H376
  30. 30. So Moab
    H4124
    was subdued
    H3665
    that day
    H3117
    under the hand
    H3027
    of Israel.
    H3478
    And the land
    H776
    had rest
    H8252
    fourscore
    H8084
    years.
    H8141
  31. 31. And after
    H310
    him was Shamgar
    H8044
    the son
    H1121
    of Anath,
    H6067
    which slew
    H5221
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    six
    H8337
    hundred
    H3967
    men
    H376
    with an ox
    H1241
    goad:
    H4451
    and he also delivered
    H3467
    Israel.
