Ehud escaped while the servants waited. He crossed over [the Jordan] near the carved images and reached Seirah.
After he arrived, he sounded the ram's horn throughout the hill country of Ephraim. The Israelites came down with him from the hill country, and he became their leader.
He told them, "Follow me, because the Lord has handed over your enemies, the Moabites, to you." So they followed him, captured the fords of the Jordan leading to Moab, and did not allow anyone to cross over.
At that time they struck down about 10,000 Moabites, all strong and able-bodied men. Not one of them escaped.
Moab became subject to Israel that day, and the land was peaceful 80 years.
