Judg 3:12-15

Ehud 12The Israelites again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord strengthened King Eglon of Moab against Israel, because they had done what was evil in the sight of the Lord.13In alliance with the Ammonites and the Amalekites, he went and defeated Israel; and they took possession of the city of palms.14So the Israelites served King Eglon of Moab eighteen years.15But when the Israelites cried out to the Lord, the Lord raised up for them a deliverer, Ehud son of Gera, the Benjaminite, a left-handed man. The Israelites sent tribute by him to King Eglon of Moab.
