After Abimelech, Tola son of Puah and grandson of Dodo, a man of Issachar, arose to rescue Israel. He lived in Shamir in the Ephraim highlands.
For twenty-three years he led Israel; then he died and was buried in Shamir.
After Tola, Jair from Gilead arose, and he led Israel for twenty-two years.
He had thirty sons who were mounted on thirty donkeys and controlled thirty towns in the land of Gilead—these are still known as Havvoth-jair today.
When Jair died, he was buried in Kamon.
