The anger of the LORD burned against Israel so that he sold1 them into the hands of Cushan-Rishathaim2 king of Aram Naharaim,a3 to whom the Israelites were subject for eight years.
But when they cried out4 to the LORD, he raised up for them a deliverer,5 Othniel6 son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, who saved them.
The Spirit of the LORD came upon him,7 so that he became Israel's judgeb and went to war. The LORD gave Cushan-Rishathaim8 king of Aram9 into the hands of Othniel, who overpowered him.
So the land had peace10 for forty years,11 until Othniel son of Kenaz12 died.
