LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM THE JUDGES OF ISRAEL

March 24, 2015

JAIR

 

Tuesday

 

Judges 10: 3-5

 

And after him arose Jair, a Gileadite, and judged Israel twenty and two years. And he had thirty sons that rode on thirty ass colts, and they had thirty cities, which are called Havothjair unto this day, which are in the land of Gilead. And Jair died, and was buried in Camon.

 

 

LESSON

 

Jair was a man from Gilead (Tribe of Manasseh, east of the River Jordan), who was the ninth judge of Israel.  Jair was Israel’s Judge or ruler for twenty-two years. 1126BC-1104BC.It seems a peace full time for Israel as not much is said about Jair’s time as a judge or leader. Jair had thirty sons, who rode thirty donkeys which means he had a large family and a lot of money only the rich could have so many donkeys. A donkey back then was like an expensive car is today. Jair in Hebrew means: Jah enlightens. It was during this period that Boaz married Ruth. 1120BC
