Chapter 20

  1. 1. Then all the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    went out,
    H3318
    and the congregation
    H5712
    was gathered together
    H6950
    as one
    H259
    man,
    H376
    from Dan
    H1835
    even to Beersheba,
    H884
    with the land
    H776
    of Gilead,
    H1568
    unto the LORD
    H3068
    in Mizpeh.
    H4709
  2. 2. And the chief
    H6438
    of all the people,
    H5971
    even of all the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel,
    H3478
    presented
    H3320
    themselves in the assembly
    H6951
    of the people
    H5971
    of God,
    H430
    four
    H702
    hundred
    H3967
    thousand
    H505
    footmen
    H7273
    that
    H376
    drew
    H8025
    sword.
    H2719
  3. 3. (Now the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    heard
    H8085
    that the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    were gone up
    H5927
    to Mizpeh.)
    H4709
    Then said
    H559
    the children
    H1121
    of Israel,
    H3478
    Tell
    H1696
    us, how was
    H1961
    this wickedness?
    H7451
  4. 4. And the Levite,
    H376
    H3881
    the husband
    H376
    of the woman
    H802
    that was slain,
    H7523
    answered
    H6030
    and said,
    H559
    I came
    H935
    into Gibeah
    H1390
    that belongeth to Benjamin,
    H1144
    I and my concubine,
    H6370
    to lodge.
    H3885
  5. 5. And the men
    H1167
    of Gibeah
    H1390
    rose
    H6965
    against me, and beset
    H5437
    the house
    H1004
    round about
    H5437
    upon me by night,
    H3915
    and thought
    H1819
    to have slain
    H2026
    me: and my concubine
    H6370
    have they forced,
    H6031
    that she is dead.
    H4191
  6. 6. And I took
    H270
    my concubine,
    H6370
    and cut her in pieces,
    H5408
    and sent
    H7971
    her throughout all the country
    H7704
    of the inheritance
    H5159
    of Israel:
    H3478
    for they have committed
    H6213
    lewdness
    H2154
    and folly
    H5039
    in Israel.
    H3478
  7. 7. Behold, ye are all children
    H1121
    of Israel;
    H3478
    give
    H3051
    here
    H1988
    your advice
    H1697
    and counsel.
    H6098
  8. 8. And all the people
    H5971
    arose
    H6965
    as one
    H259
    man,
    H376
    saying,
    H559
    We will not any
    H376
    of us go
    H3212
    to his tent,
    H168
    neither will we any
    H376
    of us turn
    H5493
    into his house.
    H1004
  9. 9. But now this shall be the thing
    H1697
    which we will do
    H6213
    to Gibeah;
    H1390
    we will go up by lot
    H1486
    against it;
  10. 10. And we will take
    H3947
    ten
    H6235
    men
    H582
    of an hundred
    H3967
    throughout all the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and an hundred
    H3967
    of a thousand,
    H505
    and a thousand
    H505
    out of ten thousand,
    H7233
    to fetch
    H3947
    victual
    H6720
    for the people,
    H5971
    that they may do,
    H6213
    when they come
    H935
    to Gibeah
    H1387
    of Benjamin,
    H1144
    according to all the folly
    H5039
    that they have wrought
    H6213
    in Israel.
    H3478
  11. 11. So all the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    were gathered
    H622
    against the city,
    H5892
    knit together
    H2270
    as one
    H259
    man.
    H376
  12. 12. And the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel
    H3478
    sent
    H7971
    men
    H582
    through all the tribe
    H7626
    of Benjamin,
    H1144
    saying,
    H559
    What wickedness
    H7451
    is this that is done
    H1961
    among you?
  13. 13. Now therefore deliver
    H5414
    us the men,
    H582
    the children
    H1121
    of Belial,
    H1100
    which are in Gibeah,
    H1390
    that we may put them to death,
    H4191
    and put away
    H1197
    evil
    H7451
    from Israel.
    H3478
    But the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    would
    H14
    not hearken
    H8085
    to the voice
    H6963
    of their brethren
    H251
    the children
    H1121
    of Israel:
    H3478
  14. 14. But the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    gathered themselves together
    H622
    out of the cities
    H5892
    unto Gibeah,
    H1390
    to go out
    H3318
    to battle
    H4421
    against the children
    H1121
    of Israel.
    H3478
  15. 15. And the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    were numbered
    H6485
    at that time
    H3117
    out of the cities
    H5892
    twenty
    H6242
    and six
    H8337
    thousand
    H505
    men
    H376
    that drew
    H8025
    sword,
    H2719
    beside the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Gibeah,
    H1390
    which were numbered
    H6485
    seven
    H7651
    hundred
    H3967
    chosen
    H977
    men.
    H376
  16. 16. Among all this people
    H5971
    there were seven
    H7651
    hundred
    H3967
    chosen
    H977
    men
    H376
    lefthanded;
    H3225
    H334
    H3027
    every one could sling
    H7049
    stones
    H68
    at an hair
    H8185
    breadth, and not miss.
    H2398
  17. 17. And the men
    H376
    of Israel,
    H3478
    beside Benjamin,
    H1144
    were numbered
    H6485
    four
    H702
    hundred
    H3967
    thousand
    H505
    men
    H376
    that drew
    H8025
    sword:
    H2719
    all these were men
    H376
    of war.
    H4421
  18. 18. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    arose,
    H6965
    and went up
    H5927
    to the house
    H1004
    of God,
    H430
    H1008
    and asked
    H7592
    counsel of God,
    H430
    and said,
    H559
    Which
    H4310
    of us shall go up
    H5927
    first
    H8462
    to the battle
    H4421
    against the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin?
    H1144
    And the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    Judah
    H3063
    shall go up first.
    H8462
  19. 19. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    rose up
    H6965
    in the morning,
    H1242
    and encamped
    H2583
    against Gibeah.
    H1390
  20. 20. And the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    went out
    H3318
    to battle
    H4421
    against Benjamin;
    H1144
    and the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    put themselves in array
    H6186
    to fight
    H4421
    against them at Gibeah.
    H1390
  21. 21. And the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    came forth
    H3318
    out of Gibeah,
    H1390
    and destroyed down
    H7843
    to the ground
    H776
    of the Israelites
    H3478
    that day
    H3117
    twenty
    H6242
    and two
    H8147
    thousand
    H505
    men.
    H376
  22. 22. And the people
    H5971
    the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    encouraged
    H2388
    themselves, and set their battle
    H4421
    again
    H3254
    in array
    H6186
    in the place
    H4725
    where they put themselves in array
    H6186
    the first
    H7223
    day.
    H3117
  23. 23. (And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    went up
    H5927
    and wept
    H1058
    before
    H6440
    the LORD
    H3068
    until even,
    H6153
    and asked
    H7592
    counsel of the LORD,
    H3068
    saying,
    H559
    Shall I go up
    H5066
    again
    H3254
    to battle
    H4421
    against the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    my brother?
    H251
    And the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    Go up
    H5927
    against him.)
  24. 24. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    came near
    H7126
    against the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    the second
    H8145
    day.
    H3117
  25. 25. And Benjamin
    H1144
    went forth
    H3318
    against
    H7125
    them out of Gibeah
    H1390
    the second
    H8145
    day,
    H3117
    and destroyed down
    H7843
    to the ground
    H776
    of the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    again eighteen
    H6240
    H8083
    thousand
    H505
    men;
    H376
    all these drew
    H8025
    the sword.
    H2719
  26. 26. Then all the children
    H1121
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and all the people,
    H5971
    went up,
    H5927
    and came
    H935
    unto the house
    H1004
    of God,
    H430
    H1008
    and wept,
    H1058
    and sat
    H3427
    there before
    H6440
    the LORD,
    H3068
    and fasted
    H6684
    that day
    H3117
    until even,
    H6153
    and offered
    H5927
    burnt offerings
    H5930
    and peace offerings
    H8002
    before
    H6440
    the LORD.
    H3068
  27. 27. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    enquired
    H7592
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    (for the ark
    H727
    of the covenant
    H1285
    of God
    H430
    was there in those days,
    H3117
  28. 28. And Phinehas,
    H6372
    the son
    H1121
    of Eleazar,
    H499
    the son
    H1121
    of Aaron,
    H175
    stood
    H5975
    before
    H6440
    it in those days,)
    H3117
    saying,
    H559
    Shall I yet again
    H3254
    go out
    H3318
    to battle
    H4421
    against the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    my brother,
    H251
    or shall I cease?
    H2308
    And the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    Go up;
    H5927
    for to morrow
    H4279
    I will deliver
    H5414
    them into thine hand.
    H3027
  29. 29. And Israel
    H3478
    set
    H7760
    liers in wait
    H693
    round about
    H5439
    Gibeah.
    H1390
  30. 30. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    went up
    H5927
    against the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    on the third
    H7992
    day,
    H3117
    and put themselves in array
    H6186
    against Gibeah,
    H1390
    as at other times.
    H6471
  31. 31. And the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    went out
    H3318
    against
    H7125
    the people,
    H5971
    and were drawn away
    H5423
    from the city;
    H5892
    and they began
    H2490
    to smite
    H5221
    of the people,
    H5971
    and kill,
    H2491
    as at other times,
    H6471
    in the highways,
    H4546
    of which one
    H259
    goeth up
    H5927
    to the house
    H1004
    of God,
    H430
    H1008
    and the other
    H259
    to Gibeah
    H1390
    in the field,
    H7704
    about thirty
    H7970
    men
    H376
    of Israel.
    H3478
  32. 32. And the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    said,
    H559
    They are smitten down
    H5062
    before
    H6440
    us, as at the first.
    H7223
    But the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    said,
    H559
    Let us flee,
    H5127
    and draw
    H5423
    them from the city
    H5892
    unto the highways.
    H4546
  33. 33. And all the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    rose up
    H6965
    out of their place,
    H4725
    and put themselves in array
    H6186
    at Baaltamar:
    H1193
    and the liers in wait
    H693
    of Israel
    H3478
    came forth
    H1518
    out of their places,
    H4725
    even out of the meadows
    H4629
    of Gibeah.
    H1387
  34. 34. And there came
    H935
    against
    H5048
    Gibeah
    H1390
    ten
    H6235
    thousand
    H505
    chosen
    H977
    men
    H376
    out of all Israel,
    H3478
    and the battle
    H4421
    was sore:
    H3513
    but they knew
    H3045
    not that evil
    H7451
    was near
    H5060
    them.
  35. 35. And the LORD
    H3068
    smote
    H5062
    Benjamin
    H1144
    before
    H6440
    Israel:
    H3478
    and the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    destroyed
    H7843
    of the Benjamites
    H1145
    that day
    H3117
    twenty
    H6242
    and five
    H2568
    thousand
    H505
    and an hundred
    H3967
    men:
    H376
    all these drew
    H8025
    the sword.
    H2719
  36. 36. So the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    saw
    H7200
    that they were smitten:
    H5062
    for the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    gave
    H5414
    place
    H4725
    to the Benjamites,
    H1145

    H7760
    beside Gibeah.

    hasted,
    H2363
    and rushed
    H6584
    upon Gibeah;

    the liers in wait,
    H693

    H7235
    flame
    H4864
    with smoke
    H6227
    rise up
    H5927

    of the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    about thirty

    persons:

    H5062
    they are smitten down
    H5062
    before
    H6440
    us, as in the first

    battle.

    with a pillar
    H5982
    of smoke,
    H6227
    the Benjamites
    H1145
    looked
    H6437
    behind
    H310
    them, and, behold, the flame
    H3632

    H5892
    ascended up
    H5927
    to heaven.

    H376
    of Israel
    H3478

    H2015
    the men
    H376
    of Benjamin

    unto the way
    H1870
