Chapter 21

  1. 1. Now the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    had sworn
    H7650
    in Mizpeh,
    H4709
    saying,
    H559
    There shall not any
    H376
    of us give
    H5414
    his daughter
    H1323
    unto Benjamin
    H1144
    to wife.
    H802
  2. 2. And the people
    H5971
    came
    H935
    to the house
    H1004
    of God,
    H430
    H1008
    and abode
    H3427
    there till even
    H6153
    before
    H6440
    God,
    H430
    and lifted up
    H5375
    their voices,
    H6963
    and wept
    H1058
    H1065
    sore;
    H1419
  3. 3. And said,
    H559
    O LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    why is this come to pass in Israel,
    H3478
    that there should be to day
    H3117
    one
    H259
    tribe
    H7626
    lacking
    H6485
    in Israel?
    H3478
  4. 4. And it came to pass on the morrow,
    H4283
    that the people
    H5971
    rose early,
    H7925
    and built
    H1129
    there an altar,
    H4196
    and offered
    H5927
    burnt offerings
    H5930
    and peace offerings.
    H8002
  5. 5. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    said,
    H559
    Who is there among all the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel
    H3478
    that
    H834
    came
    H5927
    not up with the congregation
    H6951
    unto the LORD?
    H3068
    For they had made a great
    H1419
    oath
    H7621
    concerning him that came not up
    H5927
    to the LORD
    H3068
    to Mizpeh,
    H4709
    saying,
    H559
    He shall surely
    H4191
    be put to death.
    H4191
  6. 6. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    repented
    H5162
    them for Benjamin
    H1144
    their brother,
    H251
    and said,
    H559
    There is one
    H259
    tribe
    H7626
    cut off
    H1438
    from Israel
    H3478
    this day.
    H3117
  7. 7. How shall we do
    H6213
    for wives
    H802
    for them that remain,
    H3498
    seeing we have sworn
    H7650
    by the LORD
    H3068
    that we will not give
    H5414
    them of our daughters
    H1323
    to wives?
    H802
  8. 8. And they said,
    H559
    What one
    H259
    is there of the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel
    H3478
    that came not up
    H5927
    to Mizpeh
    H4709
    to the LORD?
    H3068
    And, behold, there came
    H935
    none
    H376
    to the camp
    H4264
    from Jabeshgilead
    H1568
    to
    H3003
    the assembly.
    H6951
  9. 9. For the people
    H5971
    were numbered,
    H6485
    and, behold, there were none
    H376
    of the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Jabeshgilead
    H1568
    there.
    H3003
  10. 10. And the congregation
    H5712
    sent
    H7971
    thither twelve
    H6240
    H8147
    thousand
    H505
    men
    H376
    of the valiantest,
    H2428
    H1121
    and commanded
    H6680
    them, saying,
    H559
    Go
    H3212
    and smite
    H5221
    the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Jabeshgilead
    H1568
    with
    H3003
    the edge
    H6310
    of the sword,
    H2719
    with the women
    H802
    and the children.
    H2945
  11. 11. And this is the thing
    H1697
    that ye shall do,
    H6213
    Ye shall utterly destroy
    H2763
    every male,
    H2145
    and every woman
    H802
    that hath lain
    H4904
    by man.
    H3045
  12. 12. And they found
    H4672
    among the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Jabeshgilead
    H1568
    H3003
    four
    H702
    hundred
    H3967
    young
    H5291
    virgins,
    H1330
    that had known
    H3045
    no man
    H376
    by lying
    H4904
    with any male:
    H2145
    and they brought
    H935
    them unto the camp
    H4264
    to Shiloh,
    H7887
    which is in the land
    H776
    of Canaan.
    H3667
  13. 13. And the whole congregation
    H5712
    sent
    H7971
    some to speak
    H1696
    to the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    that were in the rock
    H5553
    Rimmon,
    H7417
    and to call
    H7121
    peaceably
    H7965
    unto them.
  14. 14. And Benjamin
    H1144
    came again
    H7725
    at that time;
    H6256
    and they gave
    H5414
    them wives
    H802
    which they had saved alive
    H2421
    of the women
    H802
    of Jabeshgilead:
    H1568
    H3003
    and yet so they sufficed
    H4672
    them not.
  15. 15. And the people
    H5971
    repented
    H5162
    them for Benjamin,
    H1144
    because that the LORD
    H3068
    had made
    H6213
    a breach
    H6556
    in the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel.
    H3478
  16. 16. Then the elders
    H2205
    of the congregation
    H5712
    said,
    H559
    How shall we do
    H6213
    for wives
    H802
    for them that remain,
    H3498
    seeing the women
    H802
    are destroyed
    H8045
    out of Benjamin?
    H1144
  17. 17. And they said,
    H559
    There must be an inheritance
    H3425
    for them that be escaped
    H6413
    of Benjamin,
    H1144
    that a tribe
    H7626
    be not destroyed
    H4229
    out of Israel.
    H3478
  18. 18. Howbeit we may
    H3201
    not give
    H5414
    them wives
    H802
    of our daughters:
    H1323
    for the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    have sworn,
    H7650
    saying,
    H559
    Cursed
    H779
    be he that giveth
    H5414
    a wife
    H802
    to Benjamin.
    H1144
  19. 19. Then they said,
    H559
    Behold, there is a feast
    H2282
    of the LORD
    H3068
    in Shiloh
    H7887
    yearly
    H3117
    in
    H3117
    a place
    which is on the north side
    H6828
    of Bethel,
    H1008
    on the east side
    H8121
    of
    H4217
    the highway
    H4546
    that goeth up
    H5927
    from Bethel
    H1008
    to Shechem,
    H7927
    and on the south
    H5045
    of Lebonah.
    H3829
  20. 20. Therefore they commanded
    H6680
    the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin,
    H1144
    saying,
    H559
    Go
    H3212
    and lie in wait
    H693
    in the vineyards;
    H3754
  21. 21. And see,
    H7200
    and, behold, if the daughters
    H1323
    of Shiloh
    H7887
    come out
    H3318
    to dance
    H2342
    in dances,
    H4246
    then come ye out
    H3318
    of the vineyards,
    H3754
    and catch
    H2414
    you every man
    H376
    his wife
    H802
    of the daughters
    H1323
    of Shiloh,
    H7887
    and go
    H1980
    to the land
    H776
    of Benjamin.
    H1144
  22. 22. And it shall be, when their fathers
    H1
    or their brethren
    H251
    come
    H935
    unto us to complain,
    H7378
    that we will say
    H559
    unto them, Be favourable
    H2603
    unto them for our sakes: because we reserved
    H3947
    not to each man
    H376
    his wife
    H802
    in the war:
    H4421
    for ye did not give
    H5414
    unto them at this time,
    H6256
    that ye should be guilty.
    H816
  23. 23. And the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    did so,
    H6213
    and took
    H5375
    them wives,
    H802
    according to their number,
    H4557
    of them that danced,
    H2342
    whom they caught:
    H1497
    and they went
    H3212
    and returned
    H7725
    unto their inheritance,
    H5159
    and repaired
    H1129
    the cities,
    H5892
    and dwelt
    H3427
    in them.
  24. 24. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    departed
    H1980
    thence at that time,
    H6256
    every man
    H376
    to his tribe
    H7626
    and to his family,
    H4940
    and they went out
    H3318
    from thence every man
    H376
    to his inheritance.
    H5159
  25. 25. In those days
    H3117
    there was no king
    H4428
    in Israel:
    H3478
    every man
    H376
    did
    H6213
    that which was right
    H3477
    in his own eyes.
