Thola ruleth Israel twenty-three years; and Jair twenty-two. The people fall again into idolatry, and are afflicted again by the Philistines and Ammonites. They cry to God for help, who upon their repentance hath compassion on them.
 After Abimelech there arose a ruler in Israel, Thola son of Phua the uncle of Abimelech, a man of Issachar, who dwelt in Samir of mount Ephraim:
Post Abimelech surrexit dux in Israel Thola filius Phua patrui Abimelech, vir de Issachar, qui habitavit in Samir montis Ephraim :
 And he judged Israel three and twenty years, and he died and was buried in Samir.
et judicavit Israelem viginti et tribus annis, mortuusque est, ac sepultus in Samir.
 To him succeeded Jair the Galaadite, who judged Israel for two and twenty years.
Huic successit Jair Galaadites, qui judicavit Israel per viginti et duos annos,
 Having thirty sons that rode on thirty ass colts, and were princes of thirty cities, which from his name were called Havoth Jair, that is, the towns of Jair, until this present day in the land of Galaad.
habens triginta filios sedentes super triginta pullos asinarum, et principes triginta civitatum, quae ex nomine ejus sunt appellatae Havoth Jair, id est, oppida Jair, usque in praesentem diem, in terra Galaad.
 And Jair died: and was buried in the place which was called Camon.
Mortuusque est Jair, ac sepultus in loco cui est vocabulum Camon.
 But the children of Israel, adding new sins to their old ones, did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served idols, Baalim and Astaroth, and the gods of Syria and of Sidon and of Moab and of the children of Ammon and of the Philistines: and they left the Lord, and did not serve him.
Filii autem Israel peccatis veteribus jungentes nova, fecerunt malum in conspectu Domini, et servierunt idolis, Baalim et Astaroth, et diis Syriae ac Sidonis et Moab et filiorum Ammon et Philisthiim : dimiseruntque Dominum, et non coluerunt eum.
 And the Lord being angry with them, delivered them into the hands of the Philistines and of the children of Ammon.
Contra quos Dominus iratus, tradidit eos in manus Philisthiim et filiorum Ammon.
 And they were afflicted, and grievously oppressed for eighteen years, all they that dwelt beyond the Jordan in the land of the Amorrhite, who is in Galaad:
Afflictique sunt, et vehementer oppressi per annos decem et octo, omnes qui habitabant trans Jordanem in terra Amorrhaei, qui est in Galaad :
 Insomuch that the children of Ammon passing over the Jordan, wasted Juda and Benjamin and Ephraim: and Israel was distressed exceedingly.
in tantum, ut filii Ammon, Jordane transmisso, vastarent Judam et Benjamin et Ephraim, afflictusque est Israel nimis.
 And they cried to the Lord, and said: We have sinned against thee, because we have forsaken the Lord our God, and have served Baalim.
Et clamantes ad Dominum, dixerunt : Peccavimus tibi, quia dereliquimus Dominum Deum nostrum, et servivimus Baalim.
 And the Lord said to them: Did not the Egyptians and the Amorrhites, and the children of Ammon and the Philistines,
Quibus locutus est Dominus : Numquid non Aegyptii et Amorrhaei, filiique Ammon et Philisthiim,
 The Sidonians also and Amalec and Chanaan oppress you, and you cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand?
Sidonii quoque et Amalec et Chanaan oppresserunt vos, et clamastis ad me, et erui vos de manu eorum?
 And yet you have forsaken me, and have worshipped strange gods: therefore I will deliver you no more:
Et tamen reliquistis me, et coluistis deos alienos : idcirco non addam ut ultra vos liberem :
 Go and call upon the gods which you have chosen: let them deliver you in the time of distress.
ite, et invocate deos quos elegistis : ipsi vos liberent in tempore angustiae.
 And the children of Israel said to the Lord: We have sinned, do thou unto us whatsoever pleaseth thee: only deliver us this time.
Dixeruntque filii Israel ad Dominum : Peccavimus, redde tu nobis quidquid tibi placet : tantum nunc libera nos.
 And saying these things, they cast away out of their coasts all the idols of strange gods and served the Lord their God: and he was touched with their miseries.
Quae dicentes, omnia de finibus suis alienorum deorum idola projecerunt, et servierunt Domino Deo : qui doluit super miseriis eorum.
 And the children of Ammon shouting together, pitched their tents in Galaad: against whom the children of Israel assembled themselves together and camped in Maspha.
Itaque filii Ammon conclamantes in Galaad fixere tentoria : contra quos congregati filii Israel, in Maspha castrametati sunt.
 And the princes of Galaad said one to another: Whosoever of us shall first begin to fight against the children of Ammon, he shall be the leader of the people of Galaad.
Dixeruntque principes Galaad singuli ad proximos suos : Qui primus ex nobis contra filios Ammon coeperit dimicare, erit dux populi Galaad.
