Judges 11
King James Version (with Strongs Data)
11Now JephthahH3316 the GileaditeH1569 was a mighty manH1368 of valourH2428, and he was the sonH1121 of an harlotH802H2181: and GileadH1568 begatH3205 JephthahH3316. 2And Gilead'sH1568 wifeH802 bareH3205 him sonsH1121; and his wife'sH802 sonsH1121 grew upH1431, and they thrust outH1644 JephthahH3316, and saidH559 unto him, Thou shalt not inheritH5157 in our father'sH1 houseH1004; for thou art the sonH1121 of a strangeH312 womanH802. 3Then JephthahH3316 fledH1272 fromH6440 his brethrenH251, and dweltH3427 in the landH776 of TobH2897: and there were gatheredH3950 vainH7386 menH582 to JephthahH3316, and went outH3318 with him. 4And it came to pass in process of timeH3117, that the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983 made warH3898 against IsraelH3478. 5And it was so, that when the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983 made warH3898 against IsraelH3478, the eldersH2205 of GileadH1568 wentH3212 to fetchH3947 JephthahH3316 out of the landH776 of TobH2897: 6And they saidH559 unto JephthahH3316, ComeH3212, and be our captainH7101, that we may fightH3898 with the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983. 7And JephthahH3316 saidH559 unto the eldersH2205 of GileadH1568, Did not ye hateH8130 me, and expelH1644 me out of my father'sH1 houseH1004? and why are ye comeH935 unto me now when ye are in distressH6887? 8And the eldersH2205 of GileadH1568 saidH559 unto JephthahH3316, Therefore we turn againH7725 to thee now, that thou mayest goH1980 with us, and fightH3898 against the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983, and be our headH7218 over all the inhabitantsH3427 of GileadH1568. 9And JephthahH3316 saidH559 unto the eldersH2205 of GileadH1568, If ye bring me home againH7725 to fightH3898 against the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983, and the LORDH3068 deliverH5414 them beforeH6440 me, shall I be your headH7218? 10And the eldersH2205 of GileadH1568 saidH559 unto JephthahH3316, The LORDH3068 be witnessH8085 between us, if we doH6213 not so according to thy wordsH1697. 11Then JephthahH3316 wentH3212 with the eldersH2205 of GileadH1568, and the peopleH5971 madeH7760 him headH7218 and captainH7101 over them: and JephthahH3316 utteredH1696 all his wordsH1697 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068 in MizpehH4709. 12And JephthahH3316 sentH7971 messengersH4397 unto the kingH4428 of the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983, sayingH559, What hast thou to do with me, that thou art comeH935 against me to fightH3898 in my landH776? 13And the kingH4428 of the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983 answeredH559 unto the messengersH4397 of JephthahH3316, Because IsraelH3478 took awayH3947 my landH776, when they came upH5927 out of EgyptH4714, from ArnonH769 even unto JabbokH2999, and unto JordanH3383: now therefore restore those lands againH7725 peaceablyH7965. 14And JephthahH3316 sentH7971 messengersH4397 againH3254 unto the kingH4428 of the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983: 15And saidH559 unto him, Thus saithH559 JephthahH3316, IsraelH3478 took not awayH3947 the landH776 of MoabH4124, nor the landH776 of the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983: 16But when IsraelH3478 came upH5927 from EgyptH4714, and walkedH3212 through the wildernessH4057 unto the RedH5488 seaH3220, and cameH935 to KadeshH6946; 17Then IsraelH3478 sentH7971 messengersH4397 unto the kingH4428 of EdomH123, sayingH559, Let me, I pray thee, pass throughH5674 thy landH776: but the kingH4428 of EdomH123 would not hearkenH8085 thereto. And in like manner they sentH7971 unto the kingH4428 of MoabH4124: but he wouldH14 not consent: and IsraelH3478 abodeH3427 in KadeshH6946. 18Then they went alongH3212 through the wildernessH4057, and compassedH5437 the landH776 of EdomH123, and the landH776 of MoabH4124, and cameH935 by the east sideH4217H8121 of the landH776 of MoabH4124, and pitchedH2583 on the other sideH5676 of ArnonH769, but cameH935 not within the borderH1366 of MoabH4124: for ArnonH769 was the borderH1366 of MoabH4124. 19And IsraelH3478 sentH7971 messengersH4397 unto SihonH5511 kingH4428 of the AmoritesH567, the kingH4428 of HeshbonH2809; and IsraelH3478 saidH559 unto him, Let us passH5674, we pray thee, through thy landH776 intoH5704 my placeH4725. 20But SihonH5511 trustedH539 not IsraelH3478 to passH5674 through his coastH1366: but SihonH5511 gatheredH622 all his peopleH5971 togetherH622, and pitchedH2583 in JahazH3096, and foughtH3898 against IsraelH3478. 21And the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478 deliveredH5414 SihonH5511 and all his peopleH5971 into the handH3027 of IsraelH3478, and they smoteH5221 them: so IsraelH3478 possessedH3423 all the landH776 of the AmoritesH567, the inhabitantsH3427 of that countryH776. 22And they possessedH3423 all the coastsH1366 of the AmoritesH567, from ArnonH769 even unto JabbokH2999, and from the wildernessH4057 even unto JordanH3383. 23So now the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478 hath dispossessedH3423 the AmoritesH567 from beforeH6440 his peopleH5971 IsraelH3478, and shouldest thou possessH3423 it? 24Wilt not thou possessH3423 that which ChemoshH3645 thy godH430 giveth thee to possessH3423? So whomsoever the LORDH3068 our GodH430 shall drive outH3423 from beforeH6440 us, them will we possessH3423. 25And now art thou any thing betterH2896 than BalakH1111 the sonH1121 of ZipporH6834, kingH4428 of MoabH4124? did he everH7378 striveH7378 against IsraelH3478, or did he everH3898 fightH3898 against them, 26While IsraelH3478 dweltH3427 in HeshbonH2809 and her townsH1323, and in AroerH6177 and her townsH1323, and in all the citiesH5892 that be along by the coastsH3027 of ArnonH769, threeH7969 hundredH3967 yearsH8141? why therefore did ye not recoverH5337 them within that timeH6256? 27Wherefore I have not sinnedH2398 against thee, but thou doestH6213H853 me wrongH7451 to warH3898 against me: the LORDH3068 the JudgeH8199 be judgeH8199 this dayH3117 between the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 and the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983. 28Howbeit the kingH4428 of the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983 hearkenedH8085 not unto the wordsH1697 of JephthahH3316 which he sentH7971 him. 29Then the SpiritH7307 of the LORDH3068 came upon JephthahH3316, and he passed overH5674 GileadH1568, and ManassehH4519, and passed overH5674 MizpehH4708 of GileadH1568, and from MizpehH4708 of GileadH1568 he passed overH5674 unto the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983. 30And JephthahH3316 vowedH5087 a vowH5088 unto the LORDH3068, and saidH559, If thou shalt without failH5414 deliverH5414 the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983 into mine handsH3027, 31Then it shall be, that whatsoeverH3318 cometh forthH3318 of the doorsH1817 of my houseH1004 to meetH7125 me, when I returnH7725 in peaceH7965 from the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983, shall surely be the LORD'SH3068, and I will offer it upH5927 for a burnt offeringH5930. 32So JephthahH3316 passed overH5674 unto the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983 to fightH3898 against them; and the LORDH3068 deliveredH5414 them into his handsH3027. 33And he smoteH5221 them from AroerH6177, even till thou comeH935 to MinnithH4511, even twentyH6242 citiesH5892, and unto the plainH58 of the vineyardsH3754H64, with a veryH3966 greatH1419 slaughterH4347. Thus the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983 were subduedH3665 beforeH6440 the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478. 34And JephthahH3316 cameH935 to MizpehH4709 unto his houseH1004, and, behold, his daughterH1323 came outH3318 to meetH7125 him with timbrelsH8596 and with dancesH4246: and she was his only childH3173; beside her he had neither sonH1121 norH176 daughterH1323. 35And it came to pass, when he sawH7200 her, that he rentH7167 his clothesH899, and saidH559, AlasH162, my daughterH1323! thou hast broughtH3766 me veryH3766 lowH3766, and thou art one of them that troubleH5916 me: for I have openedH6475 my mouthH6310 unto the LORDH3068, and I cannotH3201 go backH7725. 36And she saidH559 unto him, My fatherH1, if thou hast openedH6475 thy mouthH6310 unto the LORDH3068, doH6213 to me according to that whichH834 hath proceededH3318 out of thy mouthH6310; forasmuchH310 as the LORDH3068 hath takenH6213 vengeanceH5360 for thee of thine enemiesH341, even of the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983. 37And she saidH559 unto her fatherH1, Let this thingH1697 be doneH6213 for me: let me aloneH7503 twoH8147 monthsH2320, that I may go upH3212 and downH3381 upon the mountainsH2022, and bewailH1058 my virginityH1331, I and my fellowsH7464H7474. 38And he saidH559, GoH3212. And he sent her awayH7971 for twoH8147 monthsH2320: and she wentH3212 with her companionsH7464, and bewailedH1058 her virginityH1331 upon the mountainsH2022. 39And it came to pass at the endH7093 of twoH8147 monthsH2320, that she returnedH7725 unto her fatherH1, who didH6213 with her according to his vowH5088 which he had vowedH5087: and she knewH3045 no manH376. And it was a customH2706 in IsraelH3478, 40That the daughtersH1323 of IsraelH3478 wentH3212 yearlyH3117H3117 to lamentH8567 the daughterH1323 of JephthahH3316 the GileaditeH1569 fourH702 daysH3117 in a yearH8141.
