Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
26 Ehud escaped while they delayed, and passed beyond the sculptured stones, and escaped to Se-i'rah. 26 While they waited, Ehud got away. He passed by the idols and escaped to Seirah.
27 When he arrived, he sounded the trumpet in the hill country of E'phraim; and the people of Israel went down with him from the hill country, having him at their head. 27 When he arrived there, he blew a trumpet in the hill country of Ephraim, and the Israelites went down with him from the hills, with him leading them.
28 And he said to them, "Follow after me; for the LORD has given your enemies the Moabites into your hand." So they went down after him, and seized the fords of the Jordan against the Moabites, and allowed not a man to pass over. 28 "Follow me," he ordered, "for the LORD has given Moab, your enemy, into your hands." So they followed him down and, taking possession of the fords of the Jordan that led to Moab, they allowed no one to cross over.
29 And they killed at that time about ten thousand of the Moabites, all strong, able-bodied men; not a man escaped. 29 At that time they struck down about ten thousand Moabites, all vigorous and strong; not a man escaped.
30 So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest for eighty years. 30 That day Moab was made subject to Israel, and the land had peace for eighty years.
31 After him was Shamgar the son of Anath, who killed six hundred of the Philistines with an oxgoad; and he too delivered Israel. 31 After Ehud came Shamgar son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad. He too saved Israel.
