Tola - 8th Judge or ruler
Tola was from the tribe of Issachar. He ruled for 23 years 1149BC-1129BC.
Tola seems to have been rasied to the posion of Judge by God. He did what was asked of him by God to rule in God's wisdom and peace for the people of Israel so there was no need to record any thing about the events of Tola's life.
Tola in Hebrew means: crimson/worm color.
He lived in Shamir, in the hill country of Ephraim even though he was from the tribe of Issachar whose land allotment by Moses was in a different part of Israel. See Joshua 13:1-21:45
1 After the time of Abimelech a man of Issachar, Tola son of Puah, the son of Dodo, rose to save Israel. He lived in Shamir, in the hill country of Ephraim. 2 He led Israel twenty-three years; then he died, and was buried in Shamir.
