007:010:001
And after Abimelech there arose to defend Israel Tola the son of Puah,
the son of Dodo,
a man of Issachar;
and he dwelt in Shamir in mount Ephraim.


007:010:002
And he judged Israel twenty and three years,
and died,
and was buried in Shamir.


007:010:003
And after him arose Jair,
a Gileadite,
and judged Israel twenty and two years.


007:010:004
And he had thirty sons that rode on thirty ass colts,
and they had thirty cities,
which are called Havothjair unto this day,
which are in the land of Gilead.


007:010:005
And Jair died,
and was buried in Camon.


007:010:006
And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD,
and served Baalim,
and Ashtaroth,
and the gods of Syria,
and the gods of Zidon,
and the gods of Moab,
and the gods of the children of Ammon,
and the gods of the Philistines,
and forsook the LORD,
and served not him.


007:010:007
And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel,
and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines,
and into the hands of the children of Ammon.


007:010:008
And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel:
eighteen years,
all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites,
which is in Gilead.


007:010:009
Moreover the children of Ammon passed over Jordan to fight also against Judah,
and against Benjamin,
and against the house of Ephraim;
so that Israel was sore distressed.


007:010:010
And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD,
saying,
We have sinned against thee,
both because we have forsaken our God,
and also served Baalim.


007:010:011
And the LORD said unto the children of Israel,
Did not I deliver you from the Egyptians,
and from the Amorites,
from the children of Ammon,
and from the Philistines?


007:010:012
The Zidonians also,
and the Amalekites,
and the Maonites,
did oppress you;
and ye cried to me,
and I delivered you out of their hand.


007:010:013
Yet ye have forsaken me,
and served other gods:
wherefore I will deliver you no more.


007:010:014
Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen;
let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.


007:010:015
And the children of Israel said unto the LORD,
We have sinned:
do thou unto us whatsoever seemeth good unto thee;
deliver us only,
we pray thee,
this day.


007:010:016
And they put away the strange gods from among them,
and served the LORD:
and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel.


007:010:017
Then the children of Ammon were gathered together,
and encamped in Gilead.
And the children of Israel assembled themselves together,
and encamped in Mizpeh.


007:010:018
And the people and princes of Gilead said one to another,
What man is he that will begin to fight against the children of Ammon?
he shall be head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.
