Again we find the so-called minor judges judging only, for there are no war narratives. It is said of Ibzan that he brought in thirty daughters for his sons in marriage, but it does not that they came from outside the covenant. He did however fail for having so many wives. He judged for seven years. Elon, however, judged for ten years, with no mention of many children, or any for that matter. Then comes Abdon, a Pirathonite, and if a foreigner the LORD again showed that he reigns through the insignificant ones. He judged for eight years. So altogether these three so-called minor judges, judged for 25 years, and it would seem the nation had rest.
