Judges 3

RHE 1 These are the nations which the Lord left, that by them he might instruct Israel, and all that had not known the wars of the Chanaanites: NIV 1 These are the nations the LORD left to test all those Israelites who had not experienced any of the wars in Canaan RHE 2 That afterwards their children might learn to fight with their enemies, and to be trained up to war: NIV 2 (he did this only to teach warfare to the descendants of the Israelites who had not had previous battle experience): RHE 3 The five princes of the Philistines, and all the Chanaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hevites that dwelt in Mount Libanus, from Mount Baal Hermon to the entering into Emath. 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. RHE 4 And he left them, that he might try Israel by them, whether they would hear the commandments of the Lord, which he had commanded their fathers, by the hand of Moses, or not. 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. RHE 5 So the children of Israel dwelt in the midst of the Chanaanite, and the Hethite, and the Amorrhite, and the Pherezite, and the Hevite, and the Jebusite: NIV 5 The Israelites lived among the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. RHE 6 And they took their daughters to wives, and they gave their own daughters to their sons, and they served their gods. NIV 6 They took their daughters in marriage and gave their own daughters to their sons, and served their gods. RHE 7 And they did evil in the sight of the Lord, and they forgot their God, and served Baalim and Astaroth. 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. RHE 8 And the Lord being angry with Israel, delivered them into the hands of Chusan Rasathaim, king of Mesopotamia, and they served him 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. RHE 9 And they cried to the Lord, who raised them up a saviour, and delivered them; to wit, Othoniel, the son of Cenez, the younger brother of Caleb: 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. RHE 10 And the spirit of the Lord was in him, and he judged Israel. And he went out to fight, and the Lord delivered Chusan Rasathaim, king of Syria, and he overthrew him: 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. RHE 11 And the land rested forty years, and Othoniel, the son of Cenez, died. NIV 11 So the land had peace for forty years, until Othniel son of Kenaz died. RHE 12 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord: who strengthened against them Eglon, king of Moab: because they did evil in his sight. 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. RHE 13 And he joined to him the children of Ammon, and Amalec: and he went and overthrew Israel, and possessed the city of 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. RHE 14 And the children of Israel served Eglon, king of Moab, eighteen years. NIV 14 The Israelites were subject to Eglon king of Moab for eighteen years. RHE 15 And afterwards they cried to the Lord, who raised them up a saviour, called Aod, the son of Cera, the son of Jemini, who used the left hand as well as the right. And the children of Israel sent presents to Eglon, king of Moab, by him. 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. RHE 16 And he made himself a two-edged sword, with a haft in the midst of the length of the palm of the hand, and was girded therewith, under his garment, on the right thigh. NIV 16 Now Ehud had made a double-edged sword about a cubit long, which he strapped to his right thigh under his clothing. RHE 17 And he presented the gifts to Eglon, king of Moab Now Eglon was exceeding fat. NIV 17 He presented the tribute to Eglon king of Moab, who was a very fat man. RHE 18 And when he had presented the gifts unto him he followed his companions that came along with him. NIV 18 After Ehud had presented the tribute, he sent on their way those who had carried it. RHE 19 Then returning from Galgal, where the idols were, he said to the king: I have a secret message to thee, O king. And he commanded silence: and all being gone out that were about 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. RHE 20 Aod went in to him: now he was sitting in a summer parlour alone, and he said: I have a word from God to thee. And he forthwith rose up from his throne. 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, RHE 21 And Aod put forth his left hand, and took the dagger 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. RHE 22 With such force that the haft went in after the blade into the wound, and was closed up with the abundance of fat. So that he did not draw out the dagger, but left it in the body as he had struck it in: and forthwith, by the secret parts of nature, the excrements of the belly 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. RHE 23 And Aod carefully shutting the doors of the parlour, and locking them, NIV 23 Then Ehud went out to the porch ; he shut the doors of the upper room behind him and locked them. RHE 24 Went out by a postern door. And the king’s servants going in, saw the doors of the parlour shut, and they said: Perhaps he is easing nature in his summer parlour. 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.” RHE 25 And waiting a long time, till they were ashamed, and seeing that no man opened the door, they took a key: and opening, they found their lord lying dead on the ground. 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. RHE 26 But Aod, while they were in confusion, escaped, and passed by the place of the idols from whence he had returned. And he came to Seirath: NIV 26 While they waited, Ehud got away. He passed by the stone images and escaped to Seirah. RHE 27 And forthwith he sounded the trumpet in Mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel went down with him, he himself going in the front. 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. RHE 28 And he said to them: Follow me: for the Lord hath delivered our enemies, the Moabites, into our hands. And they went down after him, and seized upon the fords of the Jordan, which are in the way to Moab: and they suffered no man to pass over: 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. RHE 29 But they slew of the Moabites at that time, about ten thousand, all strong and valiant men: none of them could escape. NIV 29 At that time they struck down about ten thousand Moabites, all vigorous and strong; not one escaped. RHE 30 And Moab was humbled that day under the hand of Israel: and the land rested eighty years. NIV 30 That day Moab was made subject to Israel, and the land had peace for eighty years. RHE 31 After him was Samgar, the son of Anath, who slew of the Philistines six hundred men with a ploughshare: and he also defended Israel. NIV 31 After Ehud came Shamgar son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad. He too saved Israel.
