Judges Chapter 3   
  
   King James Version

  
     1 Now these [are] the nations which the LORD left, to prove Israel by them, [even] as many [of Israel] as had not known all the wars of Canaan; [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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; [gsn] [jwc] [tsk]   3 [Namely], five lords of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites that dwelt in mount Lebanon, from mount Baalhermon unto the entering in of Hamath. [jwc] [tsk]   4 And they were to prove Israel by them, to know whether they would hearken unto the commandments of the LORD, which he commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses. [jwc] [tsk]   5 And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites: [jfb] [tsk]   6 And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods. [gsn] [jwc] [tsk]   7 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and the groves. [gsn] [jwc] [tsk]   8 Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia: and the children of Israel served Chushanrishathaim eight years. [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   9 And when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, [even] Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   10 And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   11 And the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of Kenaz died. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   13 And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel, and possessed the city of palm trees. [jwc] [tsk]   14 So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years. [jwc] [tsk]   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. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   17 And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon [was] a very fat man. [jwc] [tsk]   18 And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present. [jwc] [tsk]   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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   21 And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly: [jfb] [tsk]   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. [tsk]   23 Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them. [jwc] [tsk]   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. [jwc] [tsk]   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. [jwc] [tsk]   26 And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath. [tsk]   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. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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. [tsk]   30 So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years. [gsn] [jwc] [tsk]   31 And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]
