The Holy Bible - The Book of Judges, Chapter 10 (Latin)
1And 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.
2And he judged Israel twenty and three years, and died, and was buried in Shamir.
3And after him arose Jair, a Gileadite, and judged Israel twenty and two years.
4And 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.
5And Jair died, and was buried in Camon.
6And 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.
7And 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.
8And 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.
9Moreover 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.
10And 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.
11And 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?
12The Zidonians also, and the Amalekites, and the Maonites, did oppress you; and ye cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand.
13Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more.
14Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.
15And 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.
16And they put away the strange gods from among them, and served the LORD: and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel.
17Then the children of Ammon were gathered together, and encamped in Gilead. And the children of Israel assembled themselves together, and encamped in Mizpeh.
18And 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.
1post Abimelech surrexit dux in Israhel Thola filius Phoa patrui Abimelech vir de Isachar qui habitavit in Sanir montis Ephraim
2et iudicavit Israhel viginti et tribus annis mortuusque ac sepultus est in Sanir
3huic successit Iair Galaadites qui iudicavit Israhel per viginti et duos annos
4habens triginta filios sedentes super triginta pullos asinarum et principes triginta civitatum quae ex nomine eius appellatae sunt Avothiair id est oppida Iair usque in praesentem diem in terra Galaad
5mortuusque est Iair ac sepultus in loco cui est vocabulum Camon
6filii autem Israhel peccatis veteribus iungentes nova fecerunt malum in conspectu Domini et servierunt idolis Baalim et Astharoth et diis Syriae ac Sidonis et Moab et filiorum Ammon et Philisthim dimiseruntque Dominum et non colebant eum
7contra quos iratus tradidit eos in manu Philisthim et filiorum Ammon
8adflictique sunt et vehementer oppressi per annos decem et octo omnes qui habitabant trans Iordanem in terra Amorrei quae est in Galaad
9in tantum ut filii Ammon Iordane transmisso vastarent Iudam et Beniamin et Ephraim adflictusque est Israhel nimis
10et clamantes ad Dominum dixerunt peccavimus tibi quia dereliquimus Deum nostrum et servivimus Baalim
11quibus locutus est Dominus numquid non Aegyptii et Amorrei filiique Ammon et Philisthim
12Sidonii quoque et Amalech et Chanaan oppresserunt vos et clamastis ad me et erui vos de manu eorum
13et tamen reliquistis me et coluistis deos alienos idcirco non addam ut ultra vos liberem
14ite et invocate deos quos elegistis ipsi vos liberent in tempore angustiae
15dixeruntque filii Israhel ad Dominum peccavimus redde tu nobis quicquid tibi placet tantum nunc libera nos
16quae dicentes omnia de finibus suis alienorum deorum idola proiecerunt et servierunt Deo qui doluit super miseriis eorum
17itaque filii Ammon conclamantes in Galaad fixere tentoria contra quos congregati filii Israhel in Maspha castrametati sunt
18dixeruntque principes Galaad singuli ad proximos suos qui primus e nobis contra filios Ammon coeperit dimicare erit dux populi Galaad
