Chapter 19

  1. 1. And it came to pass in those days,
    H3117
    when there was no king
    H4428
    in Israel,
    H3478
    that there was a certain
    H376
    Levite
    H3881
    sojourning
    H1481
    on the side
    H3411
    of mount
    H2022
    Ephraim,
    H669
    who took
    H3947
    to him a concubine
    H6370
    out
    H802
    of Bethlehemjudah.
    H3063
    H1035
  2. 2. And his concubine
    H6370
    played the whore
    H2181
    against him, and went away
    H3212
    from him unto her father's
    H1
    house
    H1004
    to Bethlehemjudah,
    H3063
    H1035
    and was there four
    H702
    whole months.
    H3117
    H2320
  3. 3. And her husband
    H376
    arose,
    H6965
    and went
    H3212
    after
    H310
    her, to speak
    H1696
    friendly
    H3820
    unto her, and to bring her again,
    H7725
    having his servant
    H5288
    with him, and a couple
    H6776
    of asses:
    H2543
    and she brought
    H935
    him into her father's
    H1
    house:
    H1004
    and when the father
    H1
    of the damsel
    H5291
    saw
    H7200
    him, he rejoiced
    H8055
    to meet
    H7125
    him.
  4. 4. And his father in law,
    H2859
    the damsel's
    H5291
    father,
    H1
    retained
    H2388
    him; and he abode
    H3427
    with him three
    H7969
    days:
    H3117
    so they did eat
    H398
    and drink,
    H8354
    and lodged
    H3885
    there.
  5. 5. And it came to pass on the fourth
    H7243
    day,
    H3117
    when they arose early
    H7925
    in the morning,
    H1242
    that he rose up
    H6965
    to depart:
    H3212
    and the damsel's
    H5291
    father
    H1
    said
    H559
    unto his son in law,
    H2860
    Comfort
    H5582
    thine heart
    H3820
    with a morsel
    H6595
    of bread,
    H3899
    and afterward
    H310
    go your way.
    H3212
  6. 6. And they sat down,
    H3427
    and did eat
    H398
    and drink
    H8354
    both
    H8147
    of them together:
    H3162
    for the damsel's
    H5291
    father
    H1
    had said
    H559
    unto the man,
    H376
    Be content,
    H2974
    I pray thee, and tarry all night,
    H3885
    and let thine heart
    H3820
    be merry.
    H3190
  7. 7. And when the man
    H376
    rose up
    H6965
    to depart,
    H3212
    his father in law
    H2859
    urged
    H6484
    him: therefore he lodged
    H3885
    there again.
    H7725
  8. 8. And he arose early
    H7925
    in the morning
    H1242
    on the fifth
    H2549
    day
    H3117
    to depart:
    H3212
    and the damsel's
    H5291
    father
    H1
    said,
    H559
    Comfort
    H5582
    thine heart,
    H3824
    I pray thee. And they tarried
    H4102
    until afternoon,
    H5186
    H3117
    and they did eat
    H398
    both
    H8147
    of them.
  9. 9. And when the man
    H376
    rose up
    H6965
    to depart,
    H3212
    he, and his concubine,
    H6370
    and his servant,
    H5288
    his father in law,
    H2859
    the damsel's
    H5291
    father,
    H1
    said
    H559
    unto him, Behold, now the day
    H3117
    draweth
    H7503
    toward evening,
    H6150
    I pray you tarry all night:
    H3885
    behold, the day
    H3117
    groweth to an end,
    H2583
    lodge
    H3885
    here, that thine heart
    H3824
    may be merry;
    H3190
    and to morrow
    H4279
    get you early
    H7925
    on your way,
    H1870
    that thou mayest go
    H1980
    home.
    H168
  10. 10. But the man
    H376
    would
    H14
    not tarry that night,
    H3885
    but he rose up
    H6965
    and departed,
    H3212
    and came
    H935
    over against
    H5227
    Jebus,
    H2982
    which is Jerusalem;
    H3389
    and there were with him two
    H6776
    asses
    H2543
    saddled,
    H2280
    his concubine
    H6370
    also was with him.
  11. 11. And when they were by Jebus,
    H2982
    the day
    H3117
    was far
    H3966
    spent;
    H7286
    and the servant
    H5288
    said
    H559
    unto his master,
    H113
    Come,
    H3212
    I pray thee, and let us turn in
    H5493
    into this city
    H5892
    of the Jebusites,
    H2983
    and lodge
    H3885
    in it.
  12. 12. And his master
    H113
    said
    H559
    unto him, We will not turn aside
    H5493
    hither into the city
    H5892
    of a stranger,
    H5237
    that is not of the children
    H1121
    of Israel;
    H3478
    we will pass over
    H5674
    to Gibeah.
    H1390
  13. 13. And he said
    H559
    unto his servant,
    H5288
    Come,
    H3212
    and let us draw near
    H7126
    to one
    H259
    of these places
    H4725
    to lodge all night,
    H3885
    in Gibeah,
    H1390
    or in Ramah.
    H7414
  14. 14. And they passed on
    H5674
    and went their way;
    H3212
    and the sun
    H8121
    went down
    H935
    upon them when they were by
    H681
    Gibeah,
    H1390
    which belongeth to Benjamin.
    H1144
  15. 15. And they turned aside
    H5493
    thither, to go in
    H935
    and to lodge
    H3885
    in Gibeah:
    H1390
    and when he went in,
    H935
    he sat him down
    H3427
    in a street
    H7339
    of the city:
    H5892
    for there was no man
    H376
    that took
    H622
    them into his house
    H1004
    to lodging.
    H3885
  16. 16. And, behold, there came
    H935
    an old
    H2205
    man
    H376
    from his work
    H4639
    out of the field
    H7704
    at even,
    H6153
    which was also
    H376
    of mount
    H2022
    Ephraim;
    H669
    and he sojourned
    H1481
    in Gibeah:
    H1390
    but the men
    H582
    of the place
    H4725
    were Benjamites.
    H1145
  17. 17. And when he had lifted up
    H5375
    his eyes,
    H5869
    he saw
    H7200
    a wayfaring
    H732
    man
    H376
    in the street
    H7339
    of the city:
    H5892
    and the old
    H2205
    man
    H376
    said,
    H559
    Whither goest
    H3212
    thou? and whence
    H370
    comest
    H935
    thou?
  18. 18. And he said
    H559
    unto him, We are passing
    H5674
    from Bethlehemjudah
    H3063
    toward
    H1035
    the side
    H3411
    of mount
    H2022
    Ephraim;
    H669
    from thence am I: and I went
    H3212
    to Bethlehemjudah,
    H3063
    H1035
    but I am now going
    H1980
    to the house
    H1004
    of the LORD;
    H3068
    and there is no man
    H376
    that receiveth
    H622
    me to house.
    H1004
  19. 19. Yet there is
    H3426
    both straw
    H8401
    and provender
    H4554
    for our asses;
    H2543
    and there is bread
    H3899
    and wine
    H3196
    also for me, and for thy handmaid,
    H519
    and for the young man
    H5288
    which is with thy servants:
    H5650
    there is no want
    H4270
    of any thing.
    H1697
  20. 20. And the old
    H2205
    man
    H376
    said,
    H559
    Peace
    H7965
    be with thee; howsoever
    H7535
    let all thy wants
    H4270
    lie upon me; only lodge
    H3885
    not in the street.
    H7339
  21. 21. So he brought
    H935
    him into his house,
    H1004
    and gave provender
    H1101
    unto the asses:
    H2543
    and they washed
    H7364
    their feet,
    H7272
    and did eat
    H398
    and drink.
    H8354
  22. 22. Now as they were making their hearts
    H3820
    merry,
    H3190
    behold, the men
    H582
    of the city,
    H5892
    certain
    H582
    sons
    H1121
    of Belial,
    H1100
    beset
    H5437
    the house
    H1004
    round about,
    H5437
    and beat
    H1849
    at the door,
    H1817
    and spake
    H559
    to the master
    H1167
    of the house,
    H1004
    the old
    H2205
    man,
    H376
    saying,
    H559
    Bring forth
    H3318
    the man
    H376
    that came
    H935
    into thine house,
    H1004
    that we may know
    H3045
    him.
  23. 23. And the man,
    H376
    the master
    H1167
    of the house,
    H1004
    went out
    H3318
    unto them, and said
    H559
    unto them, Nay,
    H408
    my brethren,
    H251
    nay, I pray you, do not so wickedly;
    H7489
    seeing
    H310
    that this man
    H376
    is come
    H935
    into mine house,
    H1004
    do
    H6213
    not this folly.
    H5039
  24. 24. Behold, here is my daughter
    H1323
    a maiden,
    H1330
    and his concubine;
    H6370
    them I will bring out
    H3318
    now, and humble
    H6031
    ye them, and do
    H6213
    with them what seemeth
    H5869
    good
    H2896
    unto you: but unto this man
    H376
    do
    H6213
    not so
    H2063
    vile
    H5039
    a thing.
    H1697
  25. 25. But the men
    H582
    would
    H14
    not hearken
    H8085
    to him: so the man
    H376
    took
    H2388
    his concubine,
    H6370
    and brought
    H3318
    her forth
    H2351
    unto them; and they knew
    H3045
    her, and abused
    H5953
    her all the night
    H3915
    until the morning:
    H1242
    and when the day
    H7837
    began to spring,
    H5927
    they let her go.
    H7971
  26. 26. Then came
    H935
    the woman
    H802
    in the dawning
    H6437
    of the day,
    H1242
    and fell down
    H5307
    at the door
    H6607
    of the man's
    H376
    house
    H1004
    where her lord
    H113
    was, till it was light.
    H216
  27. 27. And her lord
    H113
    rose up
    H6965
    in the morning,
    H1242
    and opened
    H6605
    the doors
    H1817
    of the house,
    H1004
    and went out
    H3318
    to go
    H3212
    his way:
    H1870
    and, behold, the woman
    H802
    his concubine
    H6370
    was fallen down
    H5307
    at the door
    H6607
    of the house,
    H1004
    and her hands
    H3027
    were upon the threshold.
    H5592
  28. 28. And he said
    H559
    unto her, Up,
    H6965
    and let us be going.
    H3212
    But none answered.
    H6030
    Then the man
    H376
    took
    H3947
    her up upon an ass,
    H2543
    and the man
    H376
    rose up,
    H6965
    and gat
    H3212
    him unto his place.
    H4725
  29. 29. And when he was come
    H935
    into his house,
    H1004
    he took
    H3947
    a knife,
    H3979
    and laid hold
    H2388
    on his concubine,
    H6370
    and divided
    H5408
    her, together with her bones,
    H6106
    into twelve
    H6240
    H8147
    pieces,
    H5409
    and sent
    H7971
    her into all the coasts
    H1366
    of Israel.
    H3478
  30. 30. And it was so,
    H1961
    that all that saw
    H7200
    it said,
    H559
    There was no such deed
    H2063
    done nor seen
    H7200
    from the day
    H3117
    that the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    came up
    H5927
    out of the land
    H776
    of Egypt
    H4714
    unto this day:
    H3117
    consider
    H7760
    of it, take advice,
    H5779
    and speak
    H1696
    your minds.
