Matthew(i) 1 After Abimelech there arose, to defende Israel, one Thola, the sonne of Phuah, the sonne of Dodo, a man of Isacar, which dwelt in Samir in mounte Ephraim. 2 And he iudged Israel .xxiij. yere, & then dyed & was buryed in Samir. 3 And after him arose Iair a Galaadyte, which iudged Israel .xxij. yeare. 4 And he had .xxx. sonnes that rode on .xxx. Asse coltes, & had .xxx. cytyes for them, which are called the tounes of Iair vnto this daye, & are in the lande of Galaad. 5 And Iair dyed, and was buryed in Kamon. 6 And the chyldren of Israel wrought wyckednesse yet agayne, in the syght of the Lorde & serued Baalim & Astharoth, & the Goddes of Syria, & the Goddes of Sidon, the Goddes of Moab, the Goddes of the chyldren of Ammon, & the Goddes of the Philystines, & forsoke the Lord & serued him not. 7 And the Lord was wroth wyth Israell, & solde them into the handes of the Philistines, and into the handes of the chyldren of Ammon: 8 which pyld & oppressed the chyldren of Israel in those dayes .xviij. yeare, all that were on the other syde Iordan in the lande of the Amorytes in Galaad. 9 Moreouer the chyldren of Ammon went ouer Iordan to fyghte agaynste Iuda, Beniamin, and the house of Ephraim: so that Israel was sore combred. 10 Then the chyldren of Israel cryed vnto the Lorde, sayinge: we haue synned agaynste the: for we haue forsaken oure owne God, and haue serued Baalim. 11 And the Lorde sayde vnto the chyldren of Israel: dyd not the Egypcyans, the Amorytes, the chyldren of Ammon, the Phylystynes, 12 the Sidonites, the Ameleckytes, & the Maonites, oppresse you? And ye cryed to me, & I delyuered you out of theyr handes. 13 And for all that ye haue forsaken me, and serue straunge Goddes, wherfore I wyl help you no more. 14 But go, and crye vnto the Goddes which ye haue chosen, and let them saue you in the tyme of youre trybulacyon. 15 But the chyldren of Israel sayde vnto the Lorde we haue synned: do thou vnto vs whatsoeuer please the, & delyuer vs onelye at thys tyme. 16 And they put awaye the straunge Goddes from them, and serued the Lorde. And the myserye of Israel greued hys soule. 17 Then the chyldren of Ammon gathered together, & pitched in Galaad. And the chyldren of Israell gathered them together & pytched in Mazphah. 18 And the companye of the Lordes of Galaad sayd eche to other, whosoeuer wyl begynne the battel agaynst the chyldren of Ammon, the same shalbe head ouer all the enhabiters of Galaad.
