    21:1 Now the men 376 of Israel 3478 had sworn 7650 8738 in Mizpeh 4709, saying 559 8800, There shall not any 376 of us give 5414 8799 his daughter 1323 unto Benjamin 1144 to wife 802.

    21:2 And the people 5971 came 935 8799 to the house 1004 of God 430 8677 1008, and abode 3427 8799 there till even 6153 before 6440 God 430, and lifted up 5375 8799 their voices 6963, and wept 1058 8799 1065 sore 1419;

    21:3 And said 559 8799, O LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478, why is this come to pass in Israel 3478, that there should be to day 3117 one 259 tribe 7626 lacking 6485 8736 in Israel 3478?

    21:4 And it came to pass on the morrow 4283, that the people 5971 rose early 7925 8686, and built 1129 8799 there an altar 4196, and offered 5927 8686 burnt offerings 5930 and peace offerings 8002.

    21:5 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799, Who [is there] among all the tribes 7626 of Israel 3478 that 834 came 5927 8804 not up with the congregation 6951 unto the LORD 3068? For they had made a great 1419 oath 7621 concerning him that came not up 5927 8804 to the LORD 3068 to Mizpeh 4709, saying 559 8800, He shall surely 4191 8800 be put to death 4191 8714.

    21:6 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 repented 5162 8735 them for Benjamin 1144 their brother 251, and said 559 8799, There is one 259 tribe 7626 cut off 1438 8738 from Israel 3478 this day 3117.

    21:7 How shall we do 6213 8799 for wives 802 for them that remain 3498 8737, seeing we have sworn 7650 8738 by the LORD 3068 that we will not give 5414 8800 them of our daughters 1323 to wives 802?

    21:8 And they said 559 8799, What one 259 [is there] of the tribes 7626 of Israel 3478 that came not up 5927 8804 to Mizpeh 4709 to the LORD 3068? And, behold, there came 935 8804 none 376 to the camp 4264 from Jabeshgilead 3003 1568 to the assembly 6951.

    21:9 For the people 5971 were numbered 6485 8691, and, behold, [there were] none 376 of the inhabitants 3427 8802 of Jabeshgilead 3003 1568 there.

    21:10 And the congregation 5712 sent 7971 8799 thither twelve 8147 6240 thousand 505 men 376 of the valiantest 1121 2428, and commanded 6680 8762 them, saying 559 8800, Go 3212 8798 and smite 5221 8689 the inhabitants 3427 8802 of Jabeshgilead 3003 1568 with the edge 6310 of the sword 2719, with the women 802 and the children 2945.

    21:11 And this [is] the thing 1697 that ye shall do 6213 8799, Ye shall utterly destroy 2763 8686 every male 2145, and every woman 802 that hath lain 4904 by man 3045 8802.(hath lain…: Heb. knoweth the lying with man)

    21:12 And they found 4672 8799 among the inhabitants 3427 8802 of Jabeshgilead 3003 1568 four 702 hundred 3967 young 5291 virgins 1330, that had known 3045 8804 no man 376 by lying 4904 with any male 2145: and they brought 935 8686 them unto the camp 4264 to Shiloh 7887, which [is] in the land 776 of Canaan 3667.(young…: Heb. young women virgins)

    21:13 And the whole congregation 5712 sent 7971 8799 [some] to speak 1696 8762 to the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 that [were] in the rock 5553 Rimmon 7417, and to call 7121 8799 peaceably 7965 unto them.(to speak…: Heb. and spake and called)(call…: or, proclaim peace)

    21:14 And Benjamin 1144 came again 7725 8799 at that time 6256; and they gave 5414 8799 them wives 802 which they had saved alive 2421 8765 of the women 802 of Jabeshgilead 3003 1568: and yet so they sufficed 4672 8804 them not.

    21:15 And the people 5971 repented 5162 8737 them for Benjamin 1144, because that the LORD 3068 had made 6213 8804 a breach 6556 in the tribes 7626 of Israel 3478.

    21:16 Then the elders 2205 of the congregation 5712 said 559 8799, How shall we do 6213 8799 for wives 802 for them that remain 3498 8737, seeing the women 802 are destroyed 8045 8738 out of Benjamin 1144?

    21:17 And they said 559 8799, [There must be] an inheritance 3425 for them that be escaped 6413 of Benjamin 1144, that a tribe 7626 be not destroyed 4229 8735 out of Israel 3478.

    21:18 Howbeit we may 3201 8799 not give 5414 8800 them wives 802 of our daughters 1323: for the children 1121 of Israel 3478 have sworn 7650 8738, saying 559 8800, Cursed 779 8803 [be] he that giveth 5414 8802 a wife 802 to Benjamin 1144.

    21:19 Then they said 559 8799, Behold, [there is] a feast 2282 of the LORD 3068 in Shiloh 7887 yearly 3117 3117 [in a place] which [is] on the north side 6828 of Bethel 1008, on the east side 4217 8121 of the highway 4546 that goeth up 5927 8802 from Bethel 1008 to Shechem 7927, and on the south 5045 of Lebonah 3829.(yearly: Heb. from year to year)(on the east…: or, toward the sunrising)(of the highway: or, on the highway)

    21:20 Therefore they commanded 6680 8762 the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144, saying 559 8800, Go 3212 8798 and lie in wait 693 8804 in the vineyards 3754;

    21:21 And see 7200 8804, and, behold, if the daughters 1323 of Shiloh 7887 come out 3318 8799 to dance 2342 8800 in dances 4246, then come ye out 3318 8804 of the vineyards 3754, and catch 2414 8804 you every man 376 his wife 802 of the daughters 1323 of Shiloh 7887, and go 1980 8804 to the land 776 of Benjamin 1144.

    21:22 And it shall be, when their fathers 1 or their brethren 251 come 935 8799 unto us to complain 7378 8800, that we will say 559 8804 unto them, Be favourable 2603 8798 unto them for our sakes: because we reserved 3947 8804 not to each man 376 his wife 802 in the war 4421: for ye did not give 5414 8804 unto them at this time 6256, [that] ye should be guilty 816 8799.(Be favourable…: or, Gratify us in them)

    21:23 And the children 1121 of Benjamin 1144 did so 6213 8799, and took 5375 8799 [them] wives 802, according to their number 4557, of them that danced 2342 8789, whom they caught 1497 8804: and they went 3212 8799 and returned 7725 8799 unto their inheritance 5159, and repaired 1129 8799 the cities 5892, and dwelt 3427 8799 in them.

    21:24 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 departed 1980 8691 thence at that time 6256, every man 376 to his tribe 7626 and to his family 4940, and they went out 3318 8799 from thence every man 376 to his inheritance 5159.

    21:25 In those days 3117 [there was] no king 4428 in Israel 3478: every man 376 did 6213 8799 [that which was] right 3477 in his own eyes 5869.
