Othniel, the First Judge

7 The Israelites did what was evil in the Lord's sight; they forgot the Lord their God and worshiped the Baals and the Asherahs.
8 The Lord's anger burned against Israel, and He sold them toa Cushan-rishathaimb king of Aram of the Two Rivers,cdand the Israelites served him eight years.
9 The Israelites cried out to the Lord. So the Lord raised up Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb's youngest brothere as a deliverer to save the Israelites.
10 The Spirit of the Lord was on him, and he judged Israel. Othniel went out to battle, and the Lord handed over Cushan-rishathaim king of Aram to him, so that Othniel overpowered him.
11 Then the land was peacefulf 40 years, and Othniel son of Kenaz died.
