1 After Abimelech died, another judge came to save Israel. He was Tola son of Puah, the son of Dodo.

He lived in Shamir, in the hill country of Ephraim.

6 Again the Israelites did what the Lord said was wrong. They worshiped Baal and Ashtoreth, the gods of Aram, Sidon, Moab, and Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines. The Israelites left the Lord and stopped serving him. 6 Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD. They served the Baals and the Ashtoreths, and the gods of Aram, the gods of Sidon, the gods of Moab, the gods of the Ammonites and the gods of the Philistines. And because the Israelites forsook the LORD and no longer served him,
7 So the Lord was angry with them and handed them over to the Philistines and the Ammonites. 7 he became angry with them. He sold them into the hands of the Philistines and the Ammonites,
8 In the same year those people destroyed the Israelites who lived east of the Jordan River in the region of Gilead, where the Amorites lived. So the Israelites suffered for eighteen years. 8 who that year shattered and crushed them. For eighteen years they oppressed all the Israelites on the east side of the Jordan in Gilead, the land of the Amorites.
9 The Ammonites then crossed the Jordan River to fight the people of Judah, Benjamin, and Ephraim, causing much trouble to the people of Israel. 9 The Ammonites also crossed the Jordan to fight against Judah, Benjamin and the house of Ephraim; and Israel was in great distress.
10 So the Israelites cried out to the Lord, "We have sinned against you. We left our God and worshiped the Baal idols." 10 Then the Israelites cried out to the LORD, "We have sinned against you, forsaking our God and serving the Baals."
11 The Lord answered the Israelites, "When the Egyptians, Amorites, Ammonites, Philistines, 11 The LORD replied, "When the Egyptians, the Amorites, the Ammonites, the Philistines,
12 Sidonians, Amalekites, and Maonites were cruel to you, you cried out to me, and I saved you. 12 the Sidonians, the Amalekites and the Maonites oppressed you and you cried to me for help, did I not save you from their hands?
13 But now you have left me again and have worshiped other gods. So I refuse to save you again. 13 But you have forsaken me and served other gods, so I will no longer save you.
14 You have chosen those gods. So go call to them for help. Let them save you when you are in trouble." 14 Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them save you when you are in trouble!"
15 But the people of Israel said to the Lord, "We have sinned. Do to us whatever you want, but please save us today!" 15 But the Israelites said to the LORD, "We have sinned. Do with us whatever you think best, but please rescue us now."
16 Then the Israelites threw away the foreign gods among them, and they worshiped the Lord again. So he felt sorry for them when he saw their suffering. 16 Then they got rid of the foreign gods among them and served the LORD. And he could bear Israel's misery no longer.
17 The Ammonites gathered for war and camped in Gilead. The Israelites gathered and camped at Mizpah. 17 When the Ammonites were called to arms and camped in Gilead, the Israelites assembled and camped at Mizpah.
18 The leaders of the people of Gilead said, "Who will lead us to attack the Ammonites? He will become the head of all those who live in Gilead." 18 The leaders of the people of Gilead said to each other, "Whoever will launch the attack against the Ammonites will be the head of all those living in Gilead."
