Ehud escaped while they delayed, and he passed beyond 1the idols and escaped to Seirah.
When he arrived, 2he sounded the trumpet in 3the hill country of Ephraim. Then the people of Israel went down with him from the hill country, and he was their leader.
And he said to them, "Follow after me, 4for the LORD has given your enemies the Moabites into your hand." So they went down after him and seized 5the fords of the Jordan against the Moabites and did not allow anyone to pass over.
And they killed at that time about 10,000 of the Moabites, all strong, able-bodied men; not a man escaped.
So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. 6And the land had rest for eighty years.
