(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:


Jephthah dwells in the land of Tob, Jud_11:1-3; is called by the elders of Gilead to command in chief against the Ammonites, Jud_11:4-6. He demands to be continued head after the war should cease; they swear it shall be so, Jud_11:7-11. He sendeth twice messengers to the king of the Ammonites to treat of peace, but in vain, Jud_11:12-28. Jephthah marcheth against him; maketh a vow; smiteth the Ammonites; performeth his vow on his daughter, Jud_11:29-40.
