Judges 3:8-11 New International Version

8  The anger of the Lord burned against Israel so that he sold them into the hands of Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram Naharaim,[1] to whom the Israelites were subject for eight years. 9  But when they cried out to the Lord, he raised up for them a deliverer, Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, who saved them. 10  The Spirit of the Lord came on him, so that he became Israel's judge[2] and went to war. The Lord gave Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram into the hands of Othniel, who overpowered him. 11  So the land had peace for forty years, until Othniel son of Kenaz died.
