Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 After Abimelech, there arose a ruler in Israel, Thola, son of Phua, the uncle of Abimelech, a man of Issachar, who dwelt in Samir of mount Ephraim: 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 And he judged Israel three and twenty years, and he died, and was buried in Samir. 2 He led Israel twenty-three years; then he died, and was buried in Shamir.
3 To him succeeded Jair, the Galaadite, who judged Israel for two and twenty years, 3 He was followed by Jair of Gilead, who led Israel twenty-two years.
4 Having thirty sons, that rode on thirty ass colts, and were princes of thirty cities, which from his name were called Havoth Jair, that is, the towns of Jair, until this present day, in the land of Galaad. 4 He had thirty sons, who rode thirty donkeys. They controlled thirty towns in Gilead, which to this day are called Havvoth Jair.
5 And Jair died, and was buried in the place which is called Camon. 5 When Jair died, he was buried in Kamon.
6 But the children of Israel, adding new sins to their old ones, did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served idols, Baalim and Astaroth, and the gods of Syria, and of Sidon, and of Moab, and of the children of Ammon, and of the Philistines: and they left the Lord, and did not 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 And the Lord being angry with them, delivered them into the hands of the Philistines, and of the children of Ammon. 7 he became angry with them. He sold them into the hands of the Philistines and the Ammonites,
8 And they were afflicted, and grievously oppressed for eighteen years, all they that dwelt beyond the Jordan in the land of the Amorrhite, who is in Galaad: 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 Insomuch that the children of Ammon, passing over the Jordan, wasted Juda, and Benjamin, and Ephraim: and Israel was distressed exceedingly. 9 The Ammonites also crossed the Jordan to fight against Judah, Benjamin and the house of Ephraim; and Israel was in great distress.
10 And they cried to the Lord, and said, We have sinned against thee, because we have forsaken the Lord our God, and have served Baalim. 10 Then the Israelites cried out to the LORD, "We have sinned against you, forsaking our God and serving the Baals."
11 And the Lord said to them: Did not the Egyptians, and the Amorrhites, and the children of Ammon, and the Philistines, 11 The LORD replied, "When the Egyptians, the Amorites, the Ammonites, the Philistines,
12 The Sidonians also, and Amalec, and Chanaan, oppress you, and you cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand? 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 And yet you have forsaken me, and have worshipped strange gods: therefore I will deliver you no more: 13 But you have forsaken me and served other gods, so I will no longer save you.
14 Go, and call upon the gods which you have chosen: let them deliver you in the time of distress. 14 Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them save you when you are in trouble!"
15 And the children of Israel said to the Lord: We have sinned, do thou unto us whatsoever pleaseth thee: only deliver 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 And saying these things, they cast away out of their coasts all the idols of strange gods, and served the Lord their God: and he was touched with their miseries. 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 And the children of Ammon shouting together, pitched their tents in Galaad: against whom the children of Israel assembled themselves together, and camped in Maspha. 17 When the Ammonites were called to arms and camped in Gilead, the Israelites assembled and camped at Mizpah.
18 And the princes of Galaad said one to another: Whosoever of us shall first begin to fight against the children of Ammon, he shall be the leader of the people of Galaad. 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."
