Tola son of Puah, son of Dodo
You probably know someone named David. Probably Mary. Also Philip, Steven, Deborah, Sarah.
Do you know anyone named after Dodo?
Do you know anyone named after Puah?
Do you know anyone named after Tola?
Why not? Tola was a hero. He rescued Israel. He ran the country for 23 years. That's longer than Bill Clinton, George Bush and Barak Obama COMBINED!
1 "After Abimelech died, Tola son of Puah, son of Dodo, was the next person to rescue Israel. He was from the tribe of Issachar but lived in the town of Shamir in the hill country of Ephraim. 2 He judged Israel for twenty-three years. When he died, he was buried in Shamir."
"Yup. I'm the leader in these here parts. And, yup, my grandpappy was Dodo!"
Tola son of Puah, son of Dodo.
Just can't get any respect around here!
(Pictured is the Dodo bird. Do YOU have a bird named after YOU?)
