12:8 After him Ibzan of Bethlehem judged Israel. 12:9 He had thirty sons; and thirty daughters he sent abroad, and thirty daughters he brought in from abroad for his sons. He judged Israel seven years. 12:10 Ibzan died, and was buried at Bethlehem. 12:11 After him Elon the Zebulunite judged Israel; and he judged Israel ten years. 12:12 Elon the Zebulunite died, and was buried in Aijalon in the land of Zebulun. 12:13 After him Abdon the son of Hillel the Pirathonite judged Israel. 12:14 He had forty sons and thirty sonsí sons, who rode on seventy donkey colts: and he judged Israel eight years.

How come everyone in Judges seems to have children in sets in ten?

It would be a type, the sets of 10 (which I know you would already know), but it brings to mind Moses who was to appoint righteous men to judge groups of ten families.

Someone else may have another thought as to why this was so, the sets of ten in Judges.
