Judges 3:11-15

11 a  So the land had rest forty years. Then Othniel the son of Kenaz died.


12 b  And the people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the  Lord, and the  Lord strengthened Eglon c  the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done what was evil in the sight of the  Lord. 13He gathered to himself the Ammonites and the d  Amalekites, and went and defeated Israel. And they took possession of e  the city of palms. 14And the people of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.

15Then the people of Israel f  cried out to the  Lord, and the  Lord raised up for them g  a deliverer, Ehud, the son of Gera, the Benjaminite, h  a left-handed man. The people of Israel sent tribute by him to Eglon the king of Moab.
