    11:1 Now Jephthah 3316 the Gileadite 1569 was a mighty man 1368 of valour 2428, and he [was] the son 1121 of an harlot 802 2181 8802: and Gilead 1568 begat 3205 8686 Jephthah 3316.(Jephthah: called Jephte)(an harlot: Heb. a woman an harlot)

    11:2 And Gilead's 1568 wife 802 bare 3205 8799 him sons 1121; and his wife's 802 sons 1121 grew up 1431 8799, and they thrust out 1644 8762 Jephthah 3316, and said 559 8799 unto him, Thou shalt not inherit 5157 8799 in our father's 1 house 1004; for thou [art] the son 1121 of a strange 312 woman 802.

    11:3 Then Jephthah 3316 fled 1272 8799 from 6440 his brethren 251, and dwelt 3427 8799 in the land 776 of Tob 2897: and there were gathered 3950 8691 vain 7386 men 582 to Jephthah 3316, and went out 3318 8799 with him.(from: Heb. from the face)

    11:4 And it came to pass in process of time 3117, that the children 1121 of Ammon 5983 made war 3898 8735 against Israel 3478.(in process…: Heb. after days)

    11:5 And it was so, that when the children 1121 of Ammon 5983 made war 3898 8738 against Israel 3478, the elders 2205 of Gilead 1568 went 3212 8799 to fetch 3947 8800 Jephthah 3316 out of the land 776 of Tob 2897:

    11:6 And they said 559 8799 unto Jephthah 3316, Come 3212 8798, and be our captain 7101, that we may fight 3898 8735 with the children 1121 of Ammon 5983.

    11:7 And Jephthah 3316 said 559 8799 unto the elders 2205 of Gilead 1568, Did not ye hate 8130 8804 me, and expel 1644 8762 me out of my father's 1 house 1004? and why are ye come 935 8804 unto me now when ye are in distress 6887 8804?

    11:8 And the elders 2205 of Gilead 1568 said 559 8799 unto Jephthah 3316, Therefore we turn again 7725 8804 to thee now, that thou mayest go 1980 8804 with us, and fight 3898 8738 against the children 1121 of Ammon 5983, and be our head 7218 over all the inhabitants 3427 8802 of Gilead 1568.

    11:9 And Jephthah 3316 said 559 8799 unto the elders 2205 of Gilead 1568, If ye bring me home again 7725 8688 to fight 3898 8736 against the children 1121 of Ammon 5983, and the LORD 3068 deliver 5414 8804 them before 6440 me, shall I be your head 7218?

    11:10 And the elders 2205 of Gilead 1568 said 559 8799 unto Jephthah 3316, The LORD 3068 be witness 8085 8802 between us, if we do 6213 8799 not so according to thy words 1697.(witness…: Heb. the hearer between us)

    11:11 Then Jephthah 3316 went 3212 8799 with the elders 2205 of Gilead 1568, and the people 5971 made 7760 8799 him head 7218 and captain 7101 over them: and Jephthah 3316 uttered 1696 8762 all his words 1697 before 6440 the LORD 3068 in Mizpeh 4709.

    11:12 And Jephthah 3316 sent 7971 8799 messengers 4397 unto the king 4428 of the children 1121 of Ammon 5983, saying 559 8800, What hast thou to do with me, that thou art come 935 8804 against me to fight 3898 8736 in my land 776?

    11:13 And the king 4428 of the children 1121 of Ammon 5983 answered 559 8799 unto the messengers 4397 of Jephthah 3316, Because Israel 3478 took away 3947 8804 my land 776, when they came up 5927 8800 out of Egypt 4714, from Arnon 769 even unto Jabbok 2999, and unto Jordan 3383: now therefore restore those [lands] again 7725 8685 peaceably 7965.

    11:14 And Jephthah 3316 sent 7971 8799 messengers 4397 again 3254 8686 unto the king 4428 of the children 1121 of Ammon 5983:

    11:15 And said 559 8799 unto him, Thus saith 559 8804 Jephthah 3316, Israel 3478 took not away 3947 8804 the land 776 of Moab 4124, nor the land 776 of the children 1121 of Ammon 5983:

    11:16 But when Israel 3478 came up 5927 8800 from Egypt 4714, and walked 3212 8799 through the wilderness 4057 unto the Red 5488 sea 3220, and came 935 8799 to Kadesh 6946;

    11:17 Then Israel 3478 sent 7971 8799 messengers 4397 unto the king 4428 of Edom 123, saying 559 8800, Let me, I pray thee, pass through 5674 8799 thy land 776: but the king 4428 of Edom 123 would not hearken 8085 8804 [thereto]. And in like manner they sent 7971 8804 unto the king 4428 of Moab 4124: but he would 14 8804 not [consent]: and Israel 3478 abode 3427 8799 in Kadesh 6946.

    11:18 Then they went along 3212 8799 through the wilderness 4057, and compassed 5437 8799 the land 776 of Edom 123, and the land 776 of Moab 4124, and came 935 8799 by the east side 4217 8121 of the land 776 of Moab 4124, and pitched 2583 8799 on the other side 5676 of Arnon 769, but came 935 8804 not within the border 1366 of Moab 4124: for Arnon 769 [was] the border 1366 of Moab 4124.

    11:19 And Israel 3478 sent 7971 8799 messengers 4397 unto Sihon 5511 king 4428 of the Amorites 567, the king 4428 of Heshbon 2809; and Israel 3478 said 559 8799 unto him, Let us pass 5674 8799, we pray thee, through thy land 776 into 5704 my place 4725.

    11:20 But Sihon 5511 trusted 539 8689 not Israel 3478 to pass 5674 8800 through his coast 1366: but Sihon 5511 gathered 622 0 all his people 5971 together 622 8799, and pitched 2583 8799 in Jahaz 3096, and fought 3898 8735 against Israel 3478.

    11:21 And the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478 delivered 5414 8799 Sihon 5511 and all his people 5971 into the hand 3027 of Israel 3478, and they smote 5221 8686 them: so Israel 3478 possessed 3423 8799 all the land 776 of the Amorites 567, the inhabitants 3427 8802 of that country 776.

    11:22 And they possessed 3423 8799 all the coasts 1366 of the Amorites 567, from Arnon 769 even unto Jabbok 2999, and from the wilderness 4057 even unto Jordan 3383.

    11:23 So now the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478 hath dispossessed 3423 8689 the Amorites 567 from before 6440 his people 5971 Israel 3478, and shouldest thou possess 3423 8799 it?

    11:24 Wilt not thou possess 3423 8799 that which Chemosh 3645 thy god 430 giveth thee to possess 3423 8686? So whomsoever the LORD 3068 our God 430 shall drive out 3423 8689 from before 6440 us, them will we possess 3423 8799.

    11:25 And now [art] thou any thing better 2896 than Balak 1111 the son 1121 of Zippor 6834, king 4428 of Moab 4124? did he ever 7378 8800 strive 7378 8804 against Israel 3478, or did he ever 3898 8736 fight 3898 8738 against them,

    11:26 While Israel 3478 dwelt 3427 8800 in Heshbon 2809 and her towns 1323, and in Aroer 6177 and her towns 1323, and in all the cities 5892 that [be] along by the coasts 3027 of Arnon 769, three 7969 hundred 3967 years 8141? why therefore did ye not recover 5337 8689 [them] within that time 6256?

    11:27 Wherefore I have not sinned 2398 8804 against thee, but thou doest 6213 8802 853 me wrong 7451 to war 3898 8736 against me: the LORD 3068 the Judge 8199 8802 be judge 8199 8799 this day 3117 between the children 1121 of Israel 3478 and the children 1121 of Ammon 5983.

    11:28 Howbeit the king 4428 of the children 1121 of Ammon 5983 hearkened 8085 8804 not unto the words 1697 of Jephthah 3316 which he sent 7971 8804 him.

    11:29 Then the Spirit 7307 of the LORD 3068 came upon Jephthah 3316, and he passed over 5674 8799 Gilead 1568, and Manasseh 4519, and passed over 5674 8799 Mizpeh 4708 of Gilead 1568, and from Mizpeh 4708 of Gilead 1568 he passed over 5674 8804 [unto] the children 1121 of Ammon 5983.

    11:30 And Jephthah 3316 vowed 5087 8799 a vow 5088 unto the LORD 3068, and said 559 8799, If thou shalt without fail 5414 8800 deliver 5414 8799 the children 1121 of Ammon 5983 into mine hands 3027,

    11:31 Then it shall be, that whatsoever 3318 8802 cometh forth 3318 8799 of the doors 1817 of my house 1004 to meet 7125 8800 me, when I return 7725 8800 in peace 7965 from the children 1121 of Ammon 5983, shall surely be the LORD'S 3068, and I will offer it up 5927 8689 for a burnt offering 5930.(whatsoever…: Heb. that which cometh forth, which shall come forth)(and…: or, or I will offer it, etc)

    11:32 So Jephthah 3316 passed over 5674 8799 unto the children 1121 of Ammon 5983 to fight 3898 8736 against them; and the LORD 3068 delivered 5414 8799 them into his hands 3027.

    11:33 And he smote 5221 8686 them from Aroer 6177, even till thou come 935 8800 to Minnith 4511, [even] twenty 6242 cities 5892, and unto the plain 58 of the vineyards 3754 8677 64, with a very 3966 great 1419 slaughter 4347. Thus the children 1121 of Ammon 5983 were subdued 3665 8735 before 6440 the children 1121 of Israel 3478.(the plain: or, Abel)

    11:34 And Jephthah 3316 came 935 8799 to Mizpeh 4709 unto his house 1004, and, behold, his daughter 1323 came out 3318 8802 to meet 7125 8800 him with timbrels 8596 and with dances 4246: and she [was his] only child 3173; beside her he had neither son 1121 nor 176 daughter 1323.(beside…: or, he had not of his own either son or daughter: Heb. of himself)

    11:35 And it came to pass, when he saw 7200 8800 her, that he rent 7167 8799 his clothes 899, and said 559 8799, Alas 162, my daughter 1323! thou hast brought 3766 0 me very 3766 8689 low 3766 8687, and thou art one of them that trouble 5916 8802 me: for I have opened 6475 8804 my mouth 6310 unto the LORD 3068, and I cannot 3201 8799 go back 7725 8800.

    11:36 And she said 559 8799 unto him, My father 1, [if] thou hast opened 6475 8804 thy mouth 6310 unto the LORD 3068, do 6213 8798 to me according to that which 834 hath proceeded 3318 8804 out of thy mouth 6310; forasmuch 310 as the LORD 3068 hath taken 6213 8804 vengeance 5360 for thee of thine enemies 341 8802, [even] of the children 1121 of Ammon 5983.

    11:37 And she said 559 8799 unto her father 1, Let this thing 1697 be done 6213 8735 for me: let me alone 7503 8685 two 8147 months 2320, that I may go up 3212 8799 and down 3381 8804 upon the mountains 2022, and bewail 1058 8799 my virginity 1331, I and my fellows 7464 8675 7474.(go up…: Heb. go and go down)

    11:38 And he said 559 8799, Go 3212 8798. And he sent her away 7971 8799 [for] two 8147 months 2320: and she went 3212 8799 with her companions 7464, and bewailed 1058 8799 her virginity 1331 upon the mountains 2022.

    11:39 And it came to pass at the end 7093 of two 8147 months 2320, that she returned 7725 8799 unto her father 1, who did 6213 8799 with her [according] to his vow 5088 which he had vowed 5087 8804: and she knew 3045 8804 no man 376. And it was a custom 2706 in Israel 3478,(custom: or, ordinance)

    11:40 [That] the daughters 1323 of Israel 3478 went 3212 8799 yearly 3117 3117 to lament 8567 8763 the daughter 1323 of Jephthah 3316 the Gileadite 1569 four 702 days 3117 in a year 8141.(yearly: Heb. from year to year)(to lament: or, to talk with)
