Judges 11:40

Context
11:40 Every year 1  Israelite women commemorate 2  the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite for four days. 3 

1 tn Heb “From days to days,” a Hebrew idiom for “annually.”

2 tn Heb “go to commemorate.” The rare Hebrew verb תָּנָה (tanah, “to tell; to repeat; to recount”) occurs only here and in 5:11.

3 tn The Hebrew text adds, “in the year.” This is redundant (note “every year” at the beginning of the verse) and has not been included in the translation for stylistic reasons.
