Jerub-Baal1 son of Joash2 went back home to live.
He had seventy sons3 of his own, for he had many wives.
His concubine,4 who lived in Shechem, also bore him a son, whom he named Abimelech.532
Gideon son of Joash died at a good old age6 and was buried in the tomb of his father Joash in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.
No sooner had Gideon died than the Israelites again prostituted themselves to the Baals.7 They set up Baal-Berith8 as their god934
and did not remember10 the LORD their God, who had rescued them from the hands of all their enemies on every side.
They also failed to show kindness to the family of Jerub-Baal11 (that is, Gideon) for all the good things he had done for them.12
