THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Judges (Author Samuel)

3:16But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.

3:17And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man.

3:18And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present.

3:19But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him.

3:20And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat.

3:21And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:

3:22And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out.

3:23Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them.
