NAS 1 Now these are the nations which the LORD left, to test Israel by them (that is, all who had not experienced any of the wars of Canaan; NIV 1 These are the nations the LORD left to test all those Israelites who had not experienced any of the wars in Canaan NAS 2 only in order that the generations of the sons of Israel might be taught war, those who had not experienced it formerly ). NIV 2 (he did this only to teach warfare to the descendants of the Israelites who had not had previous battle experience): NAS 3 These nations are: the five lords of the Philistines and all the Canaanites and the Sidonians and the Hivites who lived in Mount Lebanon, from Mount Baal-hermon as far as Lebo-hamath. NIV 3 the five rulers of the Philistines, all the Canaanites, the Sidonians, and the Hivites living in the Lebanon mountains from Mount Baal Hermon to Lebo Hamath. NAS 4 They were for testing Israel, to find out if they would obey the commandments of the LORD , which He had commanded their fathers through Moses. NIV 4 They were left to test the Israelites to see whether they would obey the LORD’s commands, which he had given their ancestors through Moses. NAS 5 The sons of Israel lived among the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; NIV 5 The Israelites lived among the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. NAS 6 and they took their daughters for themselves as wives, and gave their own daughters to their sons, and served their gods.

NAS 7 The sons of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the LORD , and forgot the LORD their God and served the Baals and the Asheroth. NIV 7 The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD; they forgot the LORD their God and served the Baals and the Asherahs. NAS 8 Then the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, so that He sold them into the hands of Cushan-rishathaim king of Mesopotamia; and the sons of Israel served Cushan-rishathaim eight years. NIV 8 The anger of the LORD burned against Israel so that he sold them into the hands of Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram Naharaim, to whom the Israelites were subject for eight years. NAS 9 When the sons of Israel cried to the LORD , the LORD raised up a deliverer for the sons of Israel to deliver them, Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother. NIV 9 But when they cried out to the LORD, he raised up for them a deliverer, Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother, who saved them. NAS 10 The Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel. When he went out to war, the LORD gave Cushan-rishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand, so that he prevailed over Cushan-rishathaim. NIV 10 The Spirit of the LORD came on him, so that he became Israel’s judge and went to war. The LORD gave Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram into the hands of Othniel, who overpowered him. NAS 11 Then the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of Kenaz died. NIV 11 So the land had peace for forty years, until Othniel son of Kenaz died. NAS 12 Now the sons of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD . So the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD . NIV 12 Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD, and because they did this evil the LORD gave Eglon king of Moab power over Israel. NAS 13 And he gathered to himself the sons of Ammon and Amalek; and he went and defeated Israel, and they possessed the city of the palm trees. NIV 13 Getting the Ammonites and Amalekites to join him, Eglon came and attacked Israel, and they took possession of the City of Palms. NAS 14 The sons of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years. NIV 14 The Israelites were subject to Eglon king of Moab for eighteen years. NAS 15 But when the sons of Israel cried to the LORD , the LORD raised up a deliverer for them, Ehud the son of Gera, the Benjamite, a left-handed man. And the sons of Israel sent tribute by him to Eglon the king of Moab. NIV 15 Again the Israelites cried out to the LORD, and he gave them a deliverer—Ehud, a left-handed man, the son of Gera the Benjamite. The Israelites sent him with tribute to Eglon king of Moab. NAS 16 Ehud made himself a sword which had two edges, a cubit in length, and he bound it on his right thigh under his cloak. NIV 16 Now Ehud had made a double-edged sword about a cubit long, which he strapped to his right thigh under his clothing. NAS 17 He presented the tribute to Eglon king of Moab. Now Eglon was a very fat man. NIV 17 He presented the tribute to Eglon king of Moab, who was a very fat man. NAS 18 It came about when he had finished presenting the tribute, that he sent away the people who had carried the tribute. NIV 18 After Ehud had presented the tribute, he sent on their way those who had carried it. NAS 19 But he himself turned back from the idols which were at Gilgal, and said, "I have a secret message for you, O king." And he said, "Keep silence." And all who attended him left him. NIV 19 But on reaching the stone images near Gilgal he himself went back to Eglon and said, “Your Majesty, I have a secret message for you.” The king said to his attendants, “Leave us!” And they all left. NAS 20 Ehud came to him while he was sitting alone in his cool roof chamber. And Ehud said, "I have a message from God for you." And he arose from his seat. NIV 20 Ehud then approached him while he was sitting alone in the upper room of his palace and said, “I have a message from God for you.” As the king rose from his seat, NAS 21 Ehud stretched out his left hand, took the sword from his right thigh and thrust it into his belly. NIV 21 Ehud reached with his left hand, drew the sword from his right thigh and plunged it into the king’s belly. NAS 22 The handle also went in after the blade, and the fat closed over the blade, for he did not draw the sword out of his belly; and the refuse came out. NIV 22 Even the handle sank in after the blade, and his bowels discharged. Ehud did not pull the sword out, and the fat closed in over it. NAS 23 Then Ehud went out into the vestibule and shut the doors of the roof chamber behind him, and locked them. NIV 23 Then Ehud went out to the porch ; he shut the doors of the upper room behind him and locked them. NAS 24 When he had gone out, his servants came and looked, and behold, the doors of the roof chamber were locked; and they said, "He is only relieving himself in the cool room." NIV 24 After he had gone, the servants came and found the doors of the upper room locked. They said, “He must be relieving himself in the inner room of the palace.” NAS 25 They waited until they became anxious; but behold, he did not open the doors of the roof chamber. Therefore they took the key and opened them, and behold, their master had fallen to the floor dead. NIV 25 They waited to the point of embarrassment, but when he did not open the doors of the room, they took a key and unlocked them. There they saw their lord fallen to the floor, dead. NAS 26 Now Ehud escaped while they were delaying, and he passed by the idols and escaped to Seirah. NIV 26 While they waited, Ehud got away. He passed by the stone images and escaped to Seirah. NAS 27 It came about when he had arrived, that he blew the trumpet in the hill country of Ephraim; and the sons of Israel went down with him from the hill country, and he was in front of them. NIV 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. NAS 28 He said to them, "Pursue them, for the LORD has given your enemies the Moabites into your hands." So they went down after him and seized the fords of the Jordan opposite Moab, and did not allow anyone to cross. NIV 28 “Follow me,” he ordered, “for the LORD has given Moab, your enemy, into your hands.” So they followed him down and took possession of the fords of the Jordan that led to Moab; they allowed no one to cross over. NAS 29 They struck down at that time about ten thousand Moabites, all robust and valiant men; and no one escaped. NIV 29 At that time they struck down about ten thousand Moabites, all vigorous and strong; not one escaped. NAS 30 So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land was undisturbed for eighty years. NIV 30 That day Moab was made subject to Israel, and the land had peace for eighty years. NAS 31 After him came Shamgar the son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad; and he also saved Israel. NIV 31 After Ehud came Shamgar son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad. He too saved Israel.
