Elon (Judg 12:11-12:12)

“After Ibzan, Elon the Zebulunite judged Israel. He judged Israel for ten years. Then Elon the Zebulunite died. He was buried at Aijalon in the land of Zebulun.”

Elon was from Zebulun also. He was judge for 10 years before he died. He is judge #10. He was buried in Aijalon, in Zebulun, which is different from the city that was given to Dan, a Levite city, where Benjamin and Ephraim also had some impact. What is interesting about these lesser known judges is how random they are. They do not seem to connect with each other. There is no mention of ‘the Spirit of Yahweh’ coming upon them. They also are judges for a short period of time.
