    20:1 Then all the children 1121 of Israel 3478 went out 3318 8799, and the congregation 5712 was gathered together 6950 8735 as one 259 man 376, from Dan 1835 even to Beersheba 884, with the land 776 of Gilead 1568, unto the LORD 3068 in Mizpeh 4709.

    20:2 And the chief 6438 of all the people 5971, [even] of all the tribes 7626 of Israel 3478, presented 3320 8691 themselves in the assembly 6951 of the people 5971 of God 430, four 702 hundred 3967 thousand 505 footmen 376 7273 that drew 8025 8802 sword 2719.

    20:3 (Now the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 heard 8085 8799 that the children 1121 of Israel 3478 were gone up 5927 8804 to Mizpeh 4709.) Then said 559 8799 the children 1121 of Israel 3478, Tell 1696 8761 [us], how was 1961 8738 this wickedness 7451?

    20:4 And the Levite 3881 376, the husband 376 of the woman 802 that was slain 7523 8737, answered 6030 8799 and said 559 8799, I came 935 8804 into Gibeah 1390 that [belongeth] to Benjamin 1144, I and my concubine 6370, to lodge 3885 8800.(the Levite: Heb. the man the Levite)

    20:5 And the men 1167 of Gibeah 1390 rose 6965 8799 against me, and beset 5437 0 the house 1004 round about 5437 8799 upon me by night 3915, [and] thought 1819 8765 to have slain 2026 8800 me: and my concubine 6370 have they forced 6031 8765, that she is dead 4191 8799.(forced: Heb. humbled)

    20:6 And I took 270 8799 my concubine 6370, and cut her in pieces 5408 8762, and sent 7971 8762 her throughout all the country 7704 of the inheritance 5159 of Israel 3478: for they have committed 6213 8804 lewdness 2154 and folly 5039 in Israel 3478.

    20:7 Behold, ye [are] all children 1121 of Israel 3478; give 3051 8798 here 1988 your advice 1697 and counsel 6098.

    20:8 And all the people 5971 arose 6965 8799 as one 259 man 376, saying 559 8800, We will not any 376 [of us] go 3212 8799 to his tent 168, neither will we any 376 [of us] turn 5493 8799 into his house 1004.

    20:9 But now this [shall be] the thing 1697 which we will do 6213 8799 to Gibeah 1390; [we will go up] by lot 1486 against it;

    20:10 And we will take 3947 8804 ten 6235 men 582 of an hundred 3967 throughout all the tribes 7626 of Israel 3478, and an hundred 3967 of a thousand 505, and a thousand 505 out of ten thousand 7233, to fetch 3947 8800 victual 6720 for the people 5971, that they may do 6213 8800, when they come 935 8800 to Gibeah 1387 of Benjamin 1144, according to all the folly 5039 that they have wrought 6213 8804 in Israel 3478.

    20:11 So all the men 376 of Israel 3478 were gathered 622 8735 against the city 5892, knit together 2270 as one 259 man 376.(knit…: Heb. fellows)

    20:12 And the tribes 7626 of Israel 3478 sent 7971 8799 men 582 through all the tribe 7626 of Benjamin 1144, saying 559 8800, What wickedness 7451 [is] this that is done 1961 8738 among you?

    20:13 Now therefore deliver 5414 8798 [us] the men 582, the children 1121 of Belial 1100, which [are] in Gibeah 1390, that we may put them to death 4191 8686, and put away 1197 8762 evil 7451 from Israel 3478. But the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 would 14 8804 not hearken 8085 8800 to the voice 6963 of their brethren 251 the children 1121 of Israel 3478:

    20:14 But the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 gathered themselves together 622 8735 out of the cities 5892 unto Gibeah 1390, to go out 3318 8800 to battle 4421 against the children 1121 of Israel 3478.

    20:15 And the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 were numbered 6485 8691 at that time 3117 out of the cities 5892 twenty 6242 and six 8337 thousand 505 men 376 that drew 8025 8802 sword 2719, beside the inhabitants 3427 8802 of Gibeah 1390, which were numbered 6485 8694 seven 7651 hundred 3967 chosen 977 8803 men 376.

    20:16 Among all this people 5971 [there were] seven 7651 hundred 3967 chosen 977 8803 men 376 lefthanded 334 3027 3225; every one could sling 7049 8802 stones 68 at an hair 8185 [breadth], and not miss 2398 8686.

    20:17 And the men 376 of Israel 3478, beside Benjamin 1144, were numbered 6485 8694 four 702 hundred 3967 thousand 505 men 376 that drew 8025 8802 sword 2719: all these [were] men 376 of war 4421.

    20:18 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 arose 6965 8799, and went up 5927 8799 to the house 1004 of God 430 8677 1008, and asked 7592 8799 counsel of God 430, and said 559 8799, Which 4310 of us shall go up 5927 8799 first 8462 to the battle 4421 against the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144? And the LORD 3068 said 559 8799, Judah 3063 [shall go up] first 8462.

    20:19 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 rose up 6965 8799 in the morning 1242, and encamped 2583 8799 against Gibeah 1390.

    20:20 And the men 376 of Israel 3478 went out 3318 8799 to battle 4421 against Benjamin 1144; and the men 376 of Israel 3478 put themselves in array 6186 8799 to fight 4421 against them at Gibeah 1390.

    20:21 And the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 came forth 3318 8799 out of Gibeah 1390, and destroyed down 7843 8686 to the ground 776 of the Israelites 3478 that day 3117 twenty 6242 and two 8147 thousand 505 men 376.

    20:22 And the people 5971 the men 376 of Israel 3478 encouraged 2388 8691 themselves, and set their battle 4421 again 3254 8686 in array 6186 8800 in the place 4725 where they put themselves in array 6186 8804 the first 7223 day 3117.

    20:23 (And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 went up 5927 8799 and wept 1058 8799 before 6440 the LORD 3068 until even 6153, and asked 7592 8799 counsel of the LORD 3068, saying 559 8800, Shall I go up 5066 8800 again 3254 8686 to battle 4421 against the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 my brother 251? And the LORD 3068 said 559 8799, Go up 5927 8798 against him.)

    20:24 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 came near 7126 8799 against the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 the second 8145 day 3117.

    20:25 And Benjamin 1144 went forth 3318 8799 against 7125 8800 them out of Gibeah 1390 the second 8145 day 3117, and destroyed down 7843 8686 to the ground 776 of the children 1121 of Israel 3478 again eighteen 8083 6240 thousand 505 men 376; all these drew 8025 8802 the sword 2719.

    20:26 Then all the children 1121 of Israel 3478, and all the people 5971, went up 5927 8799, and came 935 8799 unto the house 1004 of God 430 8677 1008, and wept 1058 8799, and sat 3427 8799 there before 6440 the LORD 3068, and fasted 6684 8799 that day 3117 until even 6153, and offered 5927 8686 burnt offerings 5930 and peace offerings 8002 before 6440 the LORD 3068.

    20:27 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 enquired 7592 8799 of the LORD 3068, (for the ark 727 of the covenant 1285 of God 430 [was] there in those days 3117,

    20:28 And Phinehas 6372, the son 1121 of Eleazar 499, the son 1121 of Aaron 175, stood 5975 8802 before 6440 it in those days 3117,) saying 559 8800, Shall I yet again 3254 8686 go out 3318 8800 to battle 4421 against the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 my brother 251, or shall I cease 2308 8799? And the LORD 3068 said 559 8799, Go up 5927 8798; for to morrow 4279 I will deliver 5414 8799 them into thine hand 3027.

    20:29 And Israel 3478 set 7760 8799 liers in wait 693 8802 round about 5439 Gibeah 1390.

    20:30 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 went up 5927 8799 against the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 on the third 7992 day 3117, and put themselves in array 6186 8799 against Gibeah 1390, as at other times 6471.

    20:31 And the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 went out 3318 8799 against 7125 8800 the people 5971, [and] were drawn away 5423 8717 from the city 5892; and they began 2490 8686 to smite 5221 8687 of the people 5971, [and] kill 2491, as at other times 6471, in the highways 4546, of which one 259 goeth up 5927 8802 to the house 1004 of God 430 8677 1008, and the other 259 to Gibeah 1390 in the field 7704, about thirty 7970 men 376 of Israel 3478.(to smite…: Heb. to smite of the people wounded as at, etc)(the house…: or, Bethel)

    20:32 And the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 said 559 8799, They [are] smitten down 5062 8737 before 6440 us, as at the first 7223. But the children 1121 of Israel 3478 said 559 8804, Let us flee 5127 8799, and draw 5423 8804 them from the city 5892 unto the highways 4546.

    20:33 And all the men 376 of Israel 3478 rose up 6965 8804 out of their place 4725, and put themselves in array 6186 8799 at Baaltamar 1193: and the liers in wait 693 8802 of Israel 3478 came forth 1518 8688 out of their places 4725, [even] out of the meadows 4629 of Gibeah 1387.

    20:34 And there came 935 8799 against 5048 Gibeah 1390 ten 6235 thousand 505 chosen 977 8803 men 376 out of all Israel 3478, and the battle 4421 was sore 3513 8804: but they knew 3045 8804 not that evil 7451 [was] near 5060 8802 them.

    20:35 And the LORD 3068 smote 5062 8799 Benjamin 1144 before 6440 Israel 3478: and the children 1121 of Israel 3478 destroyed 7843 8686 of the Benjamites 1145 that day 3117 twenty 6242 and five 2568 thousand 505 and an hundred 3967 men 376: all these drew 8025 8802 the sword 2719.

    20:36 So the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 saw 7200 8799 that they were smitten 5062 8738: for the men 376 of Israel 3478 gave 5414 8799 place 4725 to the Benjamites 1145, because they trusted 982 8804 unto the liers in wait 693 8802 which they had set 7760 8804 beside Gibeah 1390.

    20:37 And the liers in wait 693 8802 hasted 2363 8689, and rushed 6584 8799 upon Gibeah 1390; and the liers in wait 693 8802 drew [themselves] along 4900 8799, and smote 5221 8686 all the city 5892 with the edge 6310 of the sword 2719.(drew…: or, made a long sound with the trumpet)

    20:38 Now there was an appointed sign 4150 between the men 376 of Israel 3478 and 5973 the liers in wait 693 8802, that they should make a great 7235 8685 flame 4864 with smoke 6227 rise up 5927 8687 out of the city 5892.(sign: or, time)(and: Heb. with)(flame: Heb. elevation)

    20:39 And when the men 376 of Israel 3478 retired 2015 8799 in the battle 4421, Benjamin 1144 began 2490 8689 to smite 5221 8687 [and] kill 2491 of the men 376 of Israel 3478 about thirty 7970 persons 376: for they said 559 8804, Surely 5062 8736 they are smitten down 5062 8737 before 6440 us, as [in] the first 7223 battle 4421.(to smite…: Heb. to smite the wounded)

    20:40 But when the flame 4864 began 2490 8689 to arise up 5927 8800 out of the city 5892 with a pillar 5982 of smoke 6227, the Benjamites 1145 looked 6437 8799 behind 310 them, and, behold, the flame 3632 of the city 5892 ascended up 5927 8804 to heaven 8064.(the flame of: Heb. the whole consumption of)

    20:41 And when the men 376 of Israel 3478 turned again 2015 8804, the men 376 of Benjamin 1144 were amazed 926 8735: for they saw 7200 8804 that evil 7451 was come 5060 8804 upon them.(was come…: Heb. touched them)

    20:42 Therefore they turned 6437 8799 [their backs] before 6440 the men 376 of Israel 3478 unto the way 1870 of the wilderness 4057; but the battle 4421 overtook 1692 8689 them; and them which [came] out of the cities 5892 they destroyed 7843 8688 in the midst 8432 of them.

    20:43 [Thus] they inclosed 3803 8765 the Benjamites 1145 round about 3803 8765, [and] chased 7291 8689 them, [and] trode them down 1869 8689 with ease 4496 over against 5227 Gibeah 1390 toward the sunrising 4217 8121.(with ease…: or, from Menuchah, etc)(over…: Heb. unto over against)

    20:44 And there fell 5307 8799 of Benjamin 1144 eighteen 8083 6240 thousand 505 men 376; all these [were] men 582 of valour 2428.

    20:45 And they turned 6437 8799 and fled 5127 8799 toward the wilderness 4057 unto the rock 5553 of Rimmon 7417: and they gleaned 5953 8779 of them in the highways 4546 five 2568 thousand 505 men 376; and pursued 1692 8686 hard after 310 them unto Gidom 1440, and slew 5221 8686 two thousand 505 men 376 of them.

    20:46 So that all which fell 5307 8802 that day 3117 of Benjamin 1144 were twenty 6242 and five 2568 thousand 505 men 376 that drew 8025 8802 the sword 2719; all these [were] men 582 of valour 2428.

    20:47 But six 8337 hundred 3967 men 376 turned 6437 8799 and fled 5127 8799 to the wilderness 4057 unto the rock 5553 Rimmon 7417, and abode 3427 8799 in the rock 5553 Rimmon 7417 four 702 months 2320.

    20:48 And the men 376 of Israel 3478 turned again 7725 8804 upon the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144, and smote 5221 8686 them with the edge 6310 of the sword 2719, as well the men 4974 of [every] city 5892, as 5704 the beast 929, and all that came to hand 4672 8737: also they set 7971 8765 on fire 784 all the cities 5892 that they came to 4672 8737.(came to hand: Heb. was found)(they came…: Heb. were found)
