Tola in Wikipedia
Tola (Hebrew: תּוֹלָע, Modern Tola Tiberian Tôlāʻ ; "Worm; grub")
was one of the Judges of Israel whose career is documented in
Judges 10:1-2. Tola, the son of Puah and the grandson of Dodo
from the tribe of Issachar, judged Israel for twenty-three
years after Abimelech died and lived at Shamir in Mount
Ephraim, where he was also buried.
Of all the Biblical judges, the least is written about Tola.
None of his deeds are recorded. The entire account from Judges
10:1-2 (KJV) follows:
1And after Abimelech there arose to defend Israel Tola the son
of Puah, the son of Dodo, a man of Issachar; and he dwelt in
Shamir in mount Ephraim.
2And he judged Israel twenty and three years, and died, and
was buried in Shamir.
