Jair (Hebrew יָאִ֖יר, enlightener) (fl. 2830 AM–2852 AM) (fl. 1174-1152 BC)[1] was the ninth Judge of Israel. He was a Gadite and came from the land of Gilead. He had thirty sons, and each son controlled a city in Israel. (Judges 10:3-5 )

Sadly, the combined Philistine and Ammonite oppression of Israel began in the fifth year of his term. In the thirteenth year, Eli the Ithamarite became High Priest of Israel.[2]
