Chapter 11

  1. 1. Now Jephthah
    H3316
    the Gileadite
    H1569
    was a mighty man
    H1368
    of valour,
    H2428
    and he was the son
    H1121
    of an harlot:
    H2181
    H802
    and Gilead
    H1568
    begat
    H3205
    Jephthah.
    H3316
  2. 2. And Gilead's
    H1568
    wife
    H802
    bare
    H3205
    him sons;
    H1121
    and his wife's
    H802
    sons
    H1121
    grew up,
    H1431
    and they thrust out
    H1644
    Jephthah,
    H3316
    and said
    H559
    unto him, Thou shalt not inherit
    H5157
    in our father's
    H1
    house;
    H1004
    for thou art the son
    H1121
    of a strange
    H312
    woman.
    H802
  3. 3. Then Jephthah
    H3316
    fled
    H1272
    from
    H6440
    his brethren,
    H251
    and dwelt
    H3427
    in the land
    H776
    of Tob:
    H2897
    and there were gathered
    H3950
    vain
    H7386
    men
    H582
    to Jephthah,
    H3316
    and went out
    H3318
    with him.
  4. 4. And it came to pass in process of time,
    H3117
    that the children
    H1121
    of Ammon
    H5983
    made war
    H3898
    against Israel.
    H3478
  5. 5. And it was so, that when the children
    H1121
    of Ammon
    H5983
    made war
    H3898
    against Israel,
    H3478
    the elders
    H2205
    of Gilead
    H1568
    went
    H3212
    to fetch
    H3947
    Jephthah
    H3316
    out of the land
    H776
    of Tob:
    H2897
  6. 6. And they said
    H559
    unto Jephthah,
    H3316
    Come,
    H3212
    and be our captain,
    H7101
    that we may fight
    H3898
    with the children
    H1121
    of Ammon.
    H5983
  7. 7. And Jephthah
    H3316
    said
    H559
    unto the elders
    H2205
    of Gilead,
    H1568
    Did not ye hate
    H8130
    me, and expel
    H1644
    me out of my father's
    H1
    house?
    H1004
    and why are ye come
    H935
    unto me now when ye are in distress?
    H6887
  8. 8. And the elders
    H2205
    of Gilead
    H1568
    said
    H559
    unto Jephthah,
    H3316
    Therefore we turn again
    H7725
    to thee now, that thou mayest go
    H1980
    with us, and fight
    H3898
    against the children
    H1121
    of Ammon,
    H5983
    and be our head
    H7218
    over all the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Gilead.
    H1568
  9. 9. And Jephthah
    H3316
    said
    H559
    unto the elders
    H2205
    of Gilead,
    H1568
    If ye bring me home again
    H7725
    to fight
    H3898
    against the children
    H1121
    of Ammon,
    H5983
    and the LORD
    H3068
    deliver
    H5414
    them before
    H6440
    me, shall I be your head?
    H7218
  10. 10. And the elders
    H2205
    of Gilead
    H1568
    said
    H559
    unto Jephthah,
    H3316
    The LORD
    H3068
    be witness
    H8085
    between us, if we do
    H6213
    not so according to thy words.
    H1697
  11. 11. Then Jephthah
    H3316
    went
    H3212
    with the elders
    H2205
    of Gilead,
    H1568
    and the people
    H5971
    made
    H7760
    him head
    H7218
    and captain
    H7101
    over them: and Jephthah
    H3316
    uttered
    H1696
    all his words
    H1697
    before
    H6440
    the LORD
    H3068
    in Mizpeh.
    H4709
  12. 12. And Jephthah
    H3316
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    unto the king
    H4428
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon,
    H5983
    saying,
    H559
    What hast thou to do with me, that thou art come
    H935
    against me to fight
    H3898
    in my land?
    H776
  13. 13. And the king
    H4428
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon
    H5983
    answered
    H559
    unto the messengers
    H4397
    of Jephthah,
    H3316
    Because Israel
    H3478
    took away
    H3947
    my land,
    H776
    when they came up
    H5927
    out of Egypt,
    H4714
    from Arnon
    H769
    even unto Jabbok,
    H2999
    and unto Jordan:
    H3383
    now therefore restore those lands again
    H7725
    peaceably.
    H7965
  14. 14. And Jephthah
    H3316
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    again
    H3254
    unto the king
    H4428
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon:
    H5983
  15. 15. And said
    H559
    unto him, Thus saith
    H559
    Jephthah,
    H3316
    Israel
    H3478
    took not away
    H3947
    the land
    H776
    of Moab,
    H4124
    nor the land
    H776
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon:
    H5983
  16. 16. But when Israel
    H3478
    came up
    H5927
    from Egypt,
    H4714
    and walked
    H3212
    through the wilderness
    H4057
    unto the Red
    H5488
    sea,
    H3220
    and came
    H935
    to Kadesh;
    H6946
  17. 17. Then Israel
    H3478
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    unto the king
    H4428
    of Edom,
    H123
    saying,
    H559
    Let me, I pray thee, pass through
    H5674
    thy land:
    H776
    but the king
    H4428
    of Edom
    H123
    would not hearken
    H8085
    thereto. And in like manner they sent
    H7971
    unto the king
    H4428
    of Moab:
    H4124
    but he would
    H14
    not consent: and Israel
    H3478
    abode
    H3427
    in Kadesh.
    H6946
  18. 18. Then they went along
    H3212
    through the wilderness,
    H4057
    and compassed
    H5437
    the land
    H776
    of Edom,
    H123
    and the land
    H776
    of Moab,
    H4124
    and came
    H935
    by the east side
    H8121
    of
    H4217
    the land
    H776
    of Moab,
    H4124
    and pitched
    H2583
    on the other side
    H5676
    of Arnon,
    H769
    but came
    H935
    not within the border
    H1366
    of Moab:
    H4124
    for Arnon
    H769
    was the border
    H1366
    of Moab.
    H4124
  19. 19. And Israel
    H3478
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    unto Sihon
    H5511
    king
    H4428
    of the Amorites,
    H567
    the king
    H4428
    of Heshbon;
    H2809
    and Israel
    H3478
    said
    H559
    unto him, Let us pass,
    H5674
    we pray thee, through thy land
    H776
    into
    H5704
    my place.
    H4725
  20. 20. But Sihon
    H5511
    trusted
    H539
    not Israel
    H3478
    to pass
    H5674
    through his coast:
    H1366
    but Sihon
    H5511
    gathered
    H622
    all his people
    H5971
    together,
    H622
    and pitched
    H2583
    in Jahaz,
    H3096
    and fought
    H3898
    against Israel.
    H3478
  21. 21. And the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel
    H3478
    delivered
    H5414
    Sihon
    H5511
    and all his people
    H5971
    into the hand
    H3027
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and they smote
    H5221
    them: so Israel
    H3478
    possessed
    H3423
    all the land
    H776
    of the Amorites,
    H567
    the inhabitants
    H3427
    of that country.
    H776
  22. 22. And they possessed
    H3423
    all the coasts
    H1366
    of the Amorites,
    H567
    from Arnon
    H769
    even unto Jabbok,
    H2999
    and from the wilderness
    H4057
    even unto Jordan.
    H3383
  23. 23. So now the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel
    H3478
    hath dispossessed
    H3423
    the Amorites
    H567
    from before
    H6440
    his people
    H5971
    Israel,
    H3478
    and shouldest thou possess
    H3423
    it?
  24. 24. Wilt not thou possess
    H3423
    that which Chemosh
    H3645
    thy god
    H430
    giveth thee to possess?
    H3423
    So whomsoever the LORD
    H3068
    our God
    H430
    shall drive out
    H3423
    from before
    H6440
    us, them will we possess.
    H3423
  25. 25. And now art thou any thing better
    H2896
    than Balak
    H1111
    the son
    H1121
    of Zippor,
    H6834
    king
    H4428
    of Moab?
    H4124
    did he ever
    H7378
    strive
    H7378
    against Israel,
    H3478
    or did he ever
    H3898
    fight
    H3898
    against them,
  26. 26. While Israel
    H3478
    dwelt
    H3427
    in Heshbon
    H2809
    and her towns,
    H1323
    and in Aroer
    H6177
    and her towns,
    H1323
    and in all the cities
    H5892
    that be along by the coasts
    H3027
    of Arnon,
    H769
    three
    H7969
    hundred
    H3967
    years?
    H8141
    why therefore did ye not recover
    H5337
    them within that time?
    H6256
  27. 27. Wherefore I have not sinned
    H2398
    against thee, but thou doest
    H6213
    H853
    me wrong
    H7451
    to war
    H3898
    against me: the LORD
    H3068
    the Judge
    H8199
    be judge
    H8199
    this day
    H3117
    between the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    and the children
    H1121
    of Ammon.
    H5983
  28. 28. Howbeit the king
    H4428
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon
    H5983
    hearkened
    H8085
    not unto the words
    H1697
    of Jephthah
    H3316
    which he sent
    H7971
    him.
  29. 29. Then the Spirit
    H7307
    of the LORD
    H3068
    came upon Jephthah,
    H3316
    and he passed over
    H5674
    Gilead,
    H1568
    and Manasseh,
    H4519
    and passed over
    H5674
    Mizpeh
    H4708
    of Gilead,
    H1568
    and from Mizpeh
    H4708
    of Gilead
    H1568
    he passed over
    H5674
    unto the children
    H1121
    of Ammon.
    H5983
  30. 30. And Jephthah
    H3316
    vowed
    H5087
    a vow
    H5088
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    and said,
    H559
    If thou shalt without fail
    H5414
    deliver
    H5414
    the children
    H1121
    of Ammon
    H5983
    into mine hands,
    H3027
  31. 31. Then it shall be, that whatsoever
    H3318
    cometh forth
    H3318
    of the doors
    H1817
    of my house
    H1004
    to meet
    H7125
    me, when I return
    H7725
    in peace
    H7965
    from the children
    H1121
    of Ammon,
    H5983
    shall surely be the LORD'S,
    H3068
    and I will offer it up
    H5927
    for a burnt offering.
    H5930
  32. 32. So Jephthah
    H3316
    passed over
    H5674
    unto the children
    H1121
    of Ammon
    H5983
    to fight
    H3898
    against them; and the LORD
    H3068
    delivered
    H5414
    them into his hands.
    H3027
  33. 33. And he smote
    H5221
    them from Aroer,
    H6177
    even till thou come
    H935
    to Minnith,
    H4511
    even twenty
    H6242
    cities,
    H5892
    and unto the plain
    H58
    of the vineyards,
    H3754
    H64
    with a very
    H3966
    great
    H1419
    slaughter.
    H4347
    Thus the children
    H1121
    of Ammon
    H5983
    were subdued
    H3665
    before
    H6440
    the children
    H1121
    of Israel.
    H3478
  34. 34. And Jephthah
    H3316
    came
    H935
    to Mizpeh
    H4709
    unto his house,
    H1004
    and, behold, his daughter
    H1323
    came out
    H3318
    to meet
    H7125
    him with timbrels
    H8596
    and with dances:
    H4246
    and she was his only child;
    H3173
    beside her he had neither son
    H1121
    nor
    H176
    daughter.
    H1323
  35. 35. And it came to pass, when he saw
    H7200
    her, that he rent
    H7167
    his clothes,
    H899
    and said,
    H559
    Alas,
    H162
    my daughter!
    H1323
    thou hast brought
    H3766
    me very
    H3766
    low,
    H3766
    and thou art one of them that trouble
    H5916
    me: for I have opened
    H6475
    my mouth
    H6310
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    and I cannot
    H3201
    go back.
    H7725
  36. 36. And she said
    H559
    unto him, My father,
    H1
    if thou hast opened
    H6475
    thy mouth
    H6310
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    do
    H6213
    to me according to that which
    H834
    hath proceeded
    H3318
    out of thy mouth;
    H6310
    forasmuch
    H310
    as the LORD
    H3068
    hath taken
    H6213
    vengeance
    H5360
    for thee of thine enemies,
    H341
    even of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon.
    H5983
  37. 37. And she said
    H559
    unto her father,
    H1
    Let this thing
    H1697
    be done
    H6213
    for me: let me alone
    H7503
    two
    H8147
    months,
    H2320
    that I may go up
    H3212
    and down
    H3381
    upon the mountains,
    H2022
    and bewail
    H1058
    my virginity,
    H1331
    I and my fellows.
