9th Judge Jair
Jair a Gileadite 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
3 He was followed by Jair of Gilead, who led Israel twenty-two
years. 4 He had thirty sons, who rode thirty donkeys. They
