Judges 19:12-16

19:12 But his master said to him, “We should not stop at a foreign city where non-Israelites live. We will travel on to Gibeah.” 19:13 He said to his servant, “Come on, we will go into one of the other towns and spend the night in Gibeah or Ramah.” 19:14 So they traveled on, and the sun went down when they were near Gibeah in the territory of Benjamin. 19:15 They stopped there and decided to spend the night in Gibeah. They came into the city and sat down in the town square, but no one invited them to spend the night.

19:16 But then an old man passed by, returning at the end of the day from his work in the field. The man was from the Ephraimite hill country; he was living temporarily in Gibeah. (The residents of the town were Benjaminites.)

tn Heb “who are not from the sons of Israel.”

tn Or “young man.”

tn Heb “we will enter one of the places.”

tn Heb “and they passed by and went.”

tn Heb “which belongs to Benjamin.”

tn Heb “they turned aside there to enter to spend the night.”

tn Heb “and he entered and sat down, and there was no one receiving them into the house to spend the night.”

tn Heb “And look, an old man was coming from his work, from the field in the evening.”

tn Heb “And the men of the place were Benjaminites.”
