Judges 11

Now Jephthah
<03316>
the Gileadite
<01569>
was a mighty man
<01368>
of valour
<02428>_,
and he [was] the son
<01121>
of an harlot
<0802> <02181> (8802)_:
and Gilead
<01568>
begat
<03205> (8686)
Jephthah
<03316>_.
{Jephthah: Gr. Jephthae} {an harlot: Heb. a woman an harlot}
And Gilead's
<01568>
wife
<0802>
bare
<03205> (8799)
him sons
<01121>_;
and his wife's
<0802>
sons
<01121>
grew up
<01431> (8799)_,
and they thrust out
<01644> (8762)
Jephthah
<03316>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Thou shalt not inherit
<05157> (8799)
in our father's
<01>
house
<01004>_;
for thou [art] the son
<01121>
of a strange
<0312>
woman
<0802>_.
Then Jephthah
<03316>
fled
<01272> (8799)
from
<06440>
his brethren
<0251>_,
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in the land
<0776>
of Tob
<02897>_:
and there were gathered
<03950> (8691)
vain
<07386>
men
<0582>
to Jephthah
<03316>_,
and went out
<03318> (8799)
with him. {from: Heb. from the face [of]}
And it came to pass in process of time
<03117>_,
that the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
made war
<03898> (8735)
against Israel
<03478>_.
{in process...: Heb. after days}
And it was so, that when the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
made war
<03898> (8738)
against Israel
<03478>_,
the elders
<02205>
of Gilead
<01568>
went
<03212> (8799)
to fetch
<03947> (8800)
Jephthah
<03316>
out of the land
<0776>
of Tob
<02897>_:
And they said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jephthah
<03316>_,
Come
<03212> (8798)_,
and be our captain
<07101>_,
that we may fight
<03898> (8735)
with the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_.
And Jephthah
<03316>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the elders
<02205>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
Did not ye hate
<08130> (8804)
me, and expel
<01644> (8762)
me out of my father's
<01>
house
<01004>_?
and why are ye come
<0935> (8804)
unto me now when ye are in distress
<06887> (8804)_?
And the elders
<02205>
of Gilead
<01568>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jephthah
<03316>_,
Therefore we turn again
<07725> (8804)
to thee now, that thou mayest go
<01980> (8804)
with us, and fight
<03898> (8738)
against the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
and be our head
<07218>
over all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Gilead
<01568>_.
And Jephthah
<03316>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the elders
<02205>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
If ye bring me home again
<07725> (8688)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
against the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
and the LORD
<03068>
deliver
<05414> (8804)
them before
<06440>
me, shall I be your head
<07218>_?
And the elders
<02205>
of Gilead
<01568>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jephthah
<03316>_,
The LORD
<03068>
be witness
<08085> (8802)
between us, if we do
<06213> (8799)
not so according to thy words
<01697>_.
{witness...: Heb. the hearer between us}
Then Jephthah
<03316>
went
<03212> (8799)
with the elders
<02205>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
and the people
<05971>
made
<07760> (8799)
him head
<07218>
and captain
<07101>
over them: and Jephthah
<03316>
uttered
<01696> (8762)
all his words
<01697>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>
in Mizpeh
<04709>_.
And Jephthah
<03316>
sent
<07971> (8799)
messengers
<04397>
unto the king
<04428>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What hast thou to do with me, that thou art come
<0935> (8804)
against me to fight
<03898> (8736)
in my land
<0776>_?
And the king
<04428>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
answered
<0559> (8799)
unto the messengers
<04397>
of Jephthah
<03316>_,
Because Israel
<03478>
took away
<03947> (8804)
my land
<0776>_,
when they came up
<05927> (8800)
out of Egypt
<04714>_,
from Arnon
<0769>
even unto Jabbok
<02999>_,
and unto Jordan
<03383>_:
now therefore restore those [lands] again
<07725> (8685)
peaceably
<07965>_.
And Jephthah
<03316>
sent
<07971> (8799)
messengers
<04397>
again
<03254> (8686)
unto the king
<04428>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_:
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
Jephthah
<03316>_,
Israel
<03478>
took not away
<03947> (8804)
the land
<0776>
of Moab
<04124>_,
nor the land
<0776>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_:
But when Israel
<03478>
came up
<05927> (8800)
from Egypt
<04714>_,
and walked
<03212> (8799)
through the wilderness
<04057>
unto the Red
<05488>
sea
<03220>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Kadesh
<06946>_;
Then Israel
<03478>
sent
<07971> (8799)
messengers
<04397>
unto the king
<04428>
of Edom
<0123>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Let me, I pray thee, pass through
<05674> (8799)
thy land
<0776>_:
but the king
<04428>
of Edom
<0123>
would not hearken
<08085> (8804)
[thereto]. And in like manner they sent
<07971> (8804)
unto the king
<04428>
of Moab
<04124>_:
but he would
<014> (8804)
not [consent]: and Israel
<03478>
abode
<03427> (8799)
in Kadesh
<06946>_.
Then they went along
<03212> (8799)
through the wilderness
<04057>_,
and compassed
<05437> (8799)
the land
<0776>
of Edom
<0123>_,
and the land
<0776>
of Moab
<04124>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
by the east side
<04217> <08121>
of the land
<0776>
of Moab
<04124>_,
and pitched
<02583> (8799)
on the other side
<05676>
of Arnon
<0769>_,
but came
<0935> (8804)
not within the border
<01366>
of Moab
<04124>_:
for Arnon
<0769>
[was] the border
<01366>
of Moab
<04124>_.
And Israel
<03478>
sent
<07971> (8799)
messengers
<04397>
unto Sihon
<05511>
king
<04428>
of the Amorites
<0567>_,
the king
<04428>
of Heshbon
<02809>_;
and Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Let us pass
<05674> (8799)_,
we pray thee, through thy land
<0776>
into
<05704>
my place
<04725>_.
But Sihon
<05511>
trusted
<0539> (8689)
not Israel
<03478>
to pass
<05674> (8800)
through his coast
<01366>_:
but Sihon
<05511>
gathered
<0622> (0)
all his people
<05971>
together
<0622> (8799)_,
and pitched
<02583> (8799)
in Jahaz
<03096>_,
and fought
<03898> (8735)
against Israel
<03478>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
delivered
<05414> (8799)
Sihon
<05511>
and all his people
<05971>
into the hand
<03027>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and they smote
<05221> (8686)
them: so Israel
<03478>
possessed
<03423> (8799)
all the land
<0776>
of the Amorites
<0567>_,
the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of that country
<0776>_.
And they possessed
<03423> (8799)
all the coasts
<01366>
of the Amorites
<0567>_,
from Arnon
<0769>
even unto Jabbok
<02999>_,
and from the wilderness
<04057>
even unto Jordan
<03383>_.
So now the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
hath dispossessed
<03423> (8689)
the Amorites
<0567>
from before
<06440>
his people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
and shouldest thou possess
<03423> (8799)
it?
Wilt not thou possess
<03423> (8799)
that which Chemosh
<03645>
thy god
<0430>
giveth thee to possess
<03423> (8686)_?
So whomsoever the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>
shall drive out
<03423> (8689)
from before
<06440>
us, them will we possess
<03423> (8799)_.
And now [art] thou any thing better
<02896>
than Balak
<01111>
the son
<01121>
of Zippor
<06834>_,
king
<04428>
of Moab
<04124>_?
did he ever
<07378> (8800)
strive
<07378> (8804)
against Israel
<03478>_,
or did he ever
<03898> (8736)
fight
<03898> (8738)
against them,
While Israel
<03478>
dwelt
<03427> (8800)
in Heshbon
<02809>
and her towns
<01323>_,
and in Aroer
<06177>
and her towns
<01323>_,
and in all the cities
<05892>
that [be] along by the coasts
<03027>
of Arnon
<0769>_,
three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
years
<08141>_?
why therefore did ye not recover
<05337> (8689)
[them] within that time
<06256>_?
Wherefore I have not sinned
<02398> (8804)
against thee, but thou doest
<06213> (8802) <0853>
me wrong
<07451>
to war
<03898> (8736)
against me: the LORD
<03068>
the Judge
<08199> (8802)
be judge
<08199> (8799)
this day
<03117>
between the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
and the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_.
Howbeit the king
<04428>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
hearkened
<08085> (8804)
not unto the words
<01697>
of Jephthah
<03316>
which he sent
<07971> (8804)
him.
Then the Spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>
came upon Jephthah
<03316>_,
and he passed over
<05674> (8799)
Gilead
<01568>_,
and Manasseh
<04519>_,
and passed over
<05674> (8799)
Mizpeh
<04708>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
and from Mizpeh
<04708>
of Gilead
<01568>
he passed over
<05674> (8804)
[unto] the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_.
And Jephthah
<03316>
vowed
<05087> (8799)
a vow
<05088>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
If thou shalt without fail
<05414> (8800)
deliver
<05414> (8799)
the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
into mine hands
<03027>_,
Then it shall be, that whatsoever
<03318> (8802)
cometh forth
<03318> (8799)
of the doors
<01817>
of my house
<01004>
to meet
<07125> (8800)
me, when I return
<07725> (8800)
in peace
<07965>
from the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
shall surely be the LORD'S
<03068>_,
and I will offer it up
<05927> (8689)
for a burnt offering
<05930>_.
{whatsoever...: Heb. that which cometh forth, which shall come forth} {and...: or, or I will offer it, etc}
So Jephthah
<03316>
passed over
<05674> (8799)
unto the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
to fight
<03898> (8736)
against them; and the LORD
<03068>
delivered
<05414> (8799)
them into his hands
<03027>_.
And he smote
<05221> (8686)
them from Aroer
<06177>_,
even till thou come
<0935> (8800)
to Minnith
<04511>_,
[even] twenty
<06242>
cities
<05892>_,
and unto the plain
<058>
of the vineyards
<03754> (8677) <064>_,
with a very
<03966>
great
<01419>
slaughter
<04347>_.
Thus the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
were subdued
<03665> (8735)
before
<06440>
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_.
{the plain: or, Abel}
And Jephthah
<03316>
came
<0935> (8799)
to Mizpeh
<04709>
unto his house
<01004>_,
and, behold, his daughter
<01323>
came out
<03318> (8802)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
him with timbrels
<08596>
and with dances
<04246>_:
and she [was his] only child
<03173>_;
beside her he had neither son
<01121>
nor
<0176>
daughter
<01323>_.
{beside...: or, he had not of his own either son or daughter: Heb. of himself}
And it came to pass, when he saw
<07200> (8800)
her, that he rent
<07167> (8799)
his clothes
<0899>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Alas
<0162>_,
my daughter
<01323>_!
thou hast brought
<03766> (0)
me very
<03766> (8689)
low
<03766> (8687)_,
and thou art one of them that trouble
<05916> (8802)
me: for I have opened
<06475> (8804)
my mouth
<06310>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and I cannot
<03201> (8799)
go back
<07725> (8800)_.
And she said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, My father
<01>_,
[if] thou hast opened
<06475> (8804)
thy mouth
<06310>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
do
<06213> (8798)
to me according to that which
<0834>
hath proceeded
<03318> (8804)
out of thy mouth
<06310>_;
forasmuch
<0310>
as the LORD
<03068>
hath taken
<06213> (8804)
vengeance
<05360>
for thee of thine enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
[even] of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_.
And she said
<0559> (8799)
unto her father
<01>_,
Let this thing
<01697>
be done
<06213> (8735)
for me: let me alone
<07503> (8685)
two
<08147>
months
<02320>_,
that I may go up
<03212> (8799)
and down
<03381> (8804)
upon the mountains
<02022>_,
and bewail
<01058> (8799)
my virginity
<01331>_,
I and my fellows
<07464> (8675) <07474>_.
{go up...: Heb. go and go down}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Go
<03212> (8798)_.
And he sent her away
<07971> (8799)
[for] two
<08147>
months
<02320>_:
and she went
<03212> (8799)
with her companions
<07464>_,
and bewailed
<01058> (8799)
her virginity
<01331>
upon the mountains
<02022>_.
And it came to pass at the end
<07093>
of two
<08147>
months
<02320>_,
that she returned
<07725> (8799)
unto her father
<01>_,
who did
<06213> (8799)
with her [according] to his vow
<05088>
which he had vowed
<05087> (8804)_:
and she knew
<03045> (8804)
no man
<0376>_.
And it was a custom
<02706>
in Israel
<03478>_,
{custom: or, ordinance}
[That] the daughters
<01323>
of Israel
<03478>
went
<03212> (8799)
yearly
<03117> <03117>
to lament
<08567> (8763)
the daughter
<01323>
of Jephthah
<03316>
the Gileadite
<01569>
four
<0702>
days
<03117>
in a year
<08141>_.
{yearly: Heb. from year to year} {to lament: or, to talk with}
