Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 After Abimelech rose a duke in Israel, Tola, the son of Puah, son of Dodo; Tola was a man of Issachar, that dwelled in Shamir, of the hill of Ephraim; (After Abimelech, a leader arose in Israel, that is Tola, the son of Puah, the son of Dodo; and Tola was a man of Issachar, who lived in Shamir, in the hill country of 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 deemed Israel three and twenty years, and (then) he died, and was buried in Shamir. 2 He led Israel twenty-three years; then he died, and was buried in Shamir.
3 His successor was Jair, a man of Gilead, that deemed Israel two and twenty years; 3 He was followed by Jair of Gilead, who led Israel twenty-two years.
4 and he had thirty sons, sitting upon thirty colts of she-asses, and they were princes of thirty cities, the which be called by their father's name, Havothjair, that is, the cities of Jair, unto this present day, in the land of Gilead. 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 (then) Jair died, and was buried in a place that is called Camon. 5 When Jair died, he was buried in Kamon.
6 Forsooth the sons of Israel joined new sins to eld sins, and did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served to the idols of Baalim, and to Ashtaroth, and to the gods of Syria, and of Sidon, and of Moab, and of the sons of Ammon, and of Philistines; and they left the Lord, and worshipped not him (and did not worship 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 was wroth against them, and he betook them into the hands of Philistines, and of the sons of Ammon. 7 he became angry with them. He sold them into the hands of the Philistines and the Ammonites,
8 And all the sons of Israel that dwelled beyond (the) Jordan in the land of Amorites, that is, in Gilead, were tormented and oppressed greatly by eighteen years, (And all the Israelites who lived on the eastern side of the Jordan River, in the land of Amorites, that is, in Gilead, were tormented and greatly oppressed 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 in so much that the sons of Ammon, when they had passed [over] (the) Jordan, wasted Judah, and Benjamin, and Ephraim; and Israel was tormented greatly. (in so much that the Ammonites, when they had crossed over the Jordan River, attacked Judah, and Benjamin, and Ephraim; and so Israel was greatly tormented.) 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 to thee, for we forsook our God, and served Baalim. (And they cried to the Lord, and said, We have sinned against thee, for we deserted our God, and served the Baalim.) 10 Then the Israelites cried out to the LORD, "We have sinned against you, forsaking our God and serving the Baals."
11 To whom the Lord said, Whether not the Egyptians, and Amorites, and the sons of Ammon, and Philistines, 11 The LORD replied, "When the Egyptians, the Amorites, the Ammonites, the Philistines,
12 and Sidonians, and Amalek, and Canaan (and Maonites), have (all) oppressed you, and ye cried to me, and I delivered you from their hands? 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 nevertheless ye have forsaken me, and worshipped alien gods; therefore I shall not add to, that I deliver you [any] more (and so I shall not do anything more to save you again). 13 But you have forsaken me and served other gods, so I will no longer save you.
14 Go ye, and call (on) [the] gods which ye have chosen; deliver they you in the time of anguish (let them save you in your time of anguish). 14 Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them save you when you are in trouble!"
15 And the sons of Israel said to the Lord, We have sinned; yield thou to us whatever thing pleaseth to thee; only deliver us now. (And the Israelites said to the Lord, We have sinned; yield thou to us later whatever pleaseth thee; but right now, please save us!) 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 they said these things, and casted forth from their coasts all the idols of alien gods, and served the Lord; which had ruth, either compassion, on (all) the wretchednesses of them. 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 so the sons of Ammon cried together, each moving (the) other to battle against Israel, and setted tents in Gilead, and the sons of Israel were gathered against them, and setted tents in Mizpeh. (But then the Ammonites cried together, each moving the other to battle against Israel, and pitched their tents at Gilead; and the Israelites gathered themselves together against them, and pitched their tents at Mizpeh.) 17 When the Ammonites were called to arms and camped in Gilead, the Israelites assembled and camped at Mizpah.
18 And the princes of Gilead said each to his neighbours, He, that beginneth first of us to fight against the sons of Ammon, shall be duke of the people of Gilead. (And the people and the rulers of Gilead said to each other, He of us who first beginneth to fight against the Ammonites, shall be the leader of all the people of 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."
