Judges 11:9

Context
NETBible

Jephthah said to the leaders of Gilead, “All right! 1  If you take me back to fight with the Ammonites and the Lord gives them to me, 2  I will be your leader.” 3 

XREF

Nu 32:20-29

NET © Notes

tn “All right” is supplied in the translation for clarification.

tn Heb “places them before me.”

tn Some translate the final statement as a question, “will I really be your leader?” An affirmative sentence is preferable. Jephthah is repeating the terms of the agreement in an official manner. In v. 10 the leaders legally agree to these terms.
