7Bana ba Iseraele ba etsa ho leng hobe pela Jehova, ba lebala Jehova, Modimo wa bona, ba sebeletsa boBaale le boAshtarothe. 8Yaba kgalefo ya Jehova e tukela Baiseraele, mme a ba rekisetsa matsohong a Kushane-Risheathaime, morena wa Mesopotamia, mme bana ba Iseraele ba ruwa ke Kushane-Risheathaime ka dilemo tse robileng meno e le mmedi. 9Yaba bana ba Iseraele ba howeletsa ho Jehova, mme Jehova a hlahisetsa bana ba Iseraele monamoledi ya ba namolelang, e leng Othniele, mora Kenase, moena Kalebe. 10Moya wa Jehova wa eba ho yena; a ahlolela Iseraele, a lwana; mme Jehova a neela Kushane-Risheathaime, morena wa Mesopotamia, matsohong a hae. Letsoho la hae la hlola Kushane-Risheathaime. 11Mme lefatshe la phomola ka dilemo tse mashome a mane; mme Othniele, mora Kenase, a timela.

12Yaba bana ba Iseraele ba boela ba etsa ho leng hobe pela Jehova, mme Jehova a tsosa Eglone, morena wa Moabe, hore a lwantshe Baiseraele, kahobane ba entse ho leng hobe pela Jehova. 13Eglone a iphuthela bana ba Ammone le Baamaleke, a ya a hlola Baiseraele, mme ba rua motse wa Dipalema. 14Bana ba Iseraele ba ruwa ke Eglone, morena wa Moabe, ka dilemo tse leshome le metso e robileng meno e le mmedi.

15Yaba bana ba Iseraele ba howeletsa ho Jehova, mme Jehova a ba hlahisetsa monamoledi, Ehude, mora Gera, Mobenjamine, monna ya leqele. Bana ba Iseraele ba romela nyehelo ka yena ho Eglone, morena wa Moabe. 16Ehude a iketsetsa sabole e mahale a mabedi, bolelele ba yona e le setswe se le seng; mme a e tlama seropeng sa hae se setona katlasa dikobo tsa hae. 17A beela Eglone, morena wa Moabe, nyehelo. Eglone yena e ne e le motho ya nonneng haholo. 18Eitse hobane Ehude a qete ho beela Eglone nyehelo, a kgutlisa batho ba neng ba tlisitse nyehelo. 19Haele yena, a kgutla mefarong e pela Gilgale, a re: Ke na le taba ya lekunutu le wena, morena! Eglone a re: Kgutsang! Yaba batho kaofela ba nang le yena ba tloha ho yena. 20Ehude a mo atamela a dutse tlung ya hae ya lehlabula a le nnotshi, mme Ehude a re ho yena: Ke o tliseditse taba e tswang ho Modimo. Mme Eglone a tloha setulong sa hae. 21Yaba Ehude o isa letsoho la hae le letshehadi, a tshwara sabole lethekeng le letona la hae, a mo hlaba mpeng. 22Mme theko ya sabole ya kena kamora tshepe, mme mafura a patisa tshepe, a ba a sitwa ho ntsha tshepe mpeng, ya ya ho tswela ka kwana. 23Ehude a ntoo tswa ka mathule, a kwalla morena ka mamati a ntlo e kahodimo, mme a a tiisa ka senotlolo. 24Eitse hobane a tswe, bahlanka ba Eglone ba tla, ba tadima, ba bona mamati a ntlo e kahodimo a kwetswe ka senotlolo; ba re: Ekaba o ikgurumeditse maoto tlung ya hae ya lehlabula. 25Ba lebella jwalo, ba ba ba belaela, ha ba bona a sa bule menyako ya ntlo e kahodimo; yaba ba nka senotlolo, ba bula, ba bona monga bona a rapaletse fatshe, a shwele. 26Ehude a mpa a baleha, ha ba ntse ba dikadika, a feta merafo, a balehela Seira. 27Eitse ha a fihlile teng, a letsa terompeta thabeng ya Efraime, mme bana ba Iseraele ba theoha le yena thabeng, a ba eteletse pele. 28A re ho bona: Ntateleng, etswe Jehova a neetse Bamoabe, dira tsa lona, matsohong a lona. Ba theoha, ba mo sala morao, mme ba tshwara madiboho a Jordane mabapa le Moabe, ba se ke ba dumella motho ho tshela. 29Mohlang oo, ba bolaya Bamoabe ba batlileng ho ba dikete tse leshome, e bileng bohle bahale le dinatla, ho se ke ha phonyoha le a mong. 30Tsatsing leo Bamoabe ba kokobetswa ke Baiseraele, mme lefatshe la phomola ka dilemo tse mashome a robileng meno e le mmedi.
