Tola. 1After Abimelech there rose to save Israel the Issacharite Tola, son of Puah, son of Dodo, a resident of Shamir in the mountain region of Ephraim. 2When he had judged Israel twenty‐three years, he died and was buried in Shamir.

Jair. 3Jair the Gileadite came after him and judged Israel twenty‐two years. 4He had thirty sons who rode on thirty saddle‐asses*and possessed thirty cities in the land of Gilead; these are called Havvoth‐jair to the present day. p Dt 3, 14 . 5Jair died and was buried in Kamon.

Oppression by the Ammonites. 6The Israelites again offended the LORD, serving the Baals and Ashtaroths, the gods of Aram, the gods of Sidon, the gods of Moab, the gods of the Ammonites, and the gods of the Philistines. Since they had abandoned the LORD and would not serve him, 7the LORD became angry with Israel and allowed them to fall into the power of [the Philistines and] the Ammonites. 8For eighteen years they afflicted and oppressed the Israelites in Bashan, and all the Israelites in the Amorite land beyond the Jordan in Gilead. 9The Ammonites also crossed the Jordan to fight against Judah, Benjamin, and the house of Ephraim, so that Israel was in great distress.

10Then the Israelites cried out to the LORD, “We have sinned against you; we have forsaken our God and have served the Baals.” 11 q 11–14: Jgs 2, 1ff; 6, 8ff . The LORD answered the Israelites: “Did not the Egyptians, the Amorites, r Nm 21, 21–32 . the Ammonites, the Philistines, 12the Sidonians, the Amalekites, and the Midianites oppress you? s Jgs 6, 3 . Yet when you cried out to me, and I saved you from their grasp, 13you still forsook me and worshiped other gods. Therefore I will save you no more. 14Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen; let them save you now that you are in distress.” 15But the Israelites said to the LORD, “We have sinned. Do to us whatever you please. Only save us this day.” 16And they cast out the foreign gods from their midst and served the LORD, so that he grieved over the misery of Israel.

17The Ammonites had gathered for war and encamped in Gilead, while the Israelites assembled and encamped in Mizpah. t Jgs 11, 29 . 18And among the people the princes of Gilead said to one another, “The one who begins the war against the Ammonites shall be leader of all the inhabitants of Gilead.” u Jgs 11, 5–11 .
