3 7 And the people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of Yahweh, forgetting Yahweh their God, and serving the Baals and the Asheroth. 3 8 Therefore the anger of Yahweh was kindled against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Cushan-rishathaim king of Mesopotamia; and the people of Israel served Cushan-rishathaim eight years. 3 9 But when the people of Israel cried to Yahweh, Yahweh raised up a deliverer for the people of Israel, who delivered them, Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother. 3 10 The Spirit of Yahweh came upon him, and he judged Israel; he went out to war, and Yahweh gave Cushan-rishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed over Cushan-rishathaim. 3 11 So the land had rest forty years. Then Othniel the son of Kenaz died.
