Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
1 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. 1 After the time of Abimelech a man of Issachar, Tola son of Puah, the son of Dodo, rose to save Israel. He lived in Shamir, in the hill country of Ephraim.
2 For twenty-three years he led Israel; then he died and was buried in Shamir. 2 He led Israel twenty-three years; then he died, and was buried in Shamir.
3 After Tola, Jair from Gilead arose, and he led Israel for twenty-two years. 3 He was followed by Jair of Gilead, who led Israel twenty-two years.
4 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. 4 He had thirty sons, who rode thirty donkeys. They controlled thirty towns in Gilead, which to this day are called Havvoth Jair.
5 When Jair died, he was buried in Kamon. 5 When Jair died, he was buried in Kamon.
6 Then the Israelites again did things that the LORD saw as evil. They served the Baals and the Astartes, as well as the gods of Aram, Sidon, Moab, the Ammonites, and the Philistines. They went away from the LORD and didn't serve 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 The LORD became angry with Israel 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 Starting that year and for the next eighteen years, they beat and bullied the Israelites, especially all the Israelites who lived on the east side of Jordan in the territory of the Ammonites in Gilead. 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 also crossed the Jordan to make raids into Judah, Benjamin, and the households of Ephraim. So Israel was greatly distressed. 9 The Ammonites also crossed the Jordan to fight against Judah, Benjamin and the house of Ephraim; and Israel was in great distress.
10 Then the Israelites cried out to the LORD, "We've sinned against you, for we went away from our God and served the Baals." 10 Then the Israelites cried out to the LORD, "We have sinned against you, forsaking our God and serving the Baals."
11 The LORD replied to 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 oppressed you and you cried out to me, didn't I rescue you from their power? 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 you have gone away from me and served other gods, so I won't rescue you anymore! 13 But you have forsaken me and served other gods, so I will no longer save you.
14 Go cry out to the gods you've chosen. Let them rescue you in the time of your distress." 14 Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them save you when you are in trouble!"
15 The Israelites responded to the LORD, "We've sinned. Do to us whatever you see as right, but please save us this time." 15 But the Israelites said to the LORD, "We have sinned. Do with us whatever you think best, but please rescue us now."
16 They put away the foreign gods from among them and served the LORD. And the LORD could no longer stand to see Israel suffer. 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 called out their army and made camp in Gilead, while the Israelites gathered and set up their camp at Mizpah. 17 When the Ammonites were called to arms and camped in Gilead, the Israelites assembled and camped at Mizpah.
18 Gilead's rulers said to each other, "Whoever is willing to launch the attack against the Ammonites will become the leader over all those living 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."
