2 G2532 And G3854 [4came G3956 1all G3588 2the G2992 3people] G1519 unto G* Beth-el, G2532 and G2523 sat G1563 there G2193 until G2073 evening G1799 before G3588 G2316 God. G2532 And G1869 they lifted G3588 G5456 their voice G1473 G2532 and G2799 wept G2805 [2weeping G3173 1a great].
3 G2532 And G2036 they said, G2444 Why, G2962 O lord G2316 God G* of Israel, G1096 was this taken place G3778 G1722 in G3588 G* Israel, G3588 G1980 to overlook G4594 today G1722 in G3588 G* Israel G5443 [2tribe G1520 1one]?

G3754 For G3588 G3727 [3oath G3173 2a great G1510.7.3 1there was] G3588 concerning the one G3361 not G305 ascending G4314 to G2962 the lord G1519 in G* Mizpeh, G3004 saying, G2288 To death G599 he shall die.
6 G2532 And G3870 [4relented G3588 1the G5207 2sons G* 3of Israel] G4012 concerning G* [2Benjamin G3588 G80 1their brother], G1473 G2532 and G2036 said, G851 [5is removed G4594 6today G5443 2tribe G1520 1one G1437 3from G* 4Israel].
7 G5100 What G4160 should we do G1473 to them, G3588 to the ones G5275 left behind G1519 for G1135 wives, G2532 for G1473 we G3660 swore by an oath G3588 to the G2962 lord G3588 G3361 to not G1325 give G1473 to them G575 from G3588 G2364 our daughters G1473 G1519 for G1135 wives?
8 G2532 And G2036 they said, G5100 What G1520 one G3588 is there of the G5443 tribes G* of Israel G3748 which G3756 did not G305 ascend G4314 to G2962 the lord G1519 in G* Mizpeh? G2532 And G2400 behold, G3756 no G2064 [2came G435 1man] G1519 to G3588 the G3925 camp G575 from G* Jabish G* Gilead G1519 to G3588 the G1577 assembly.
9 G2532 And G1980 [3were numbered G3588 1the G2992 2people], G2532 And G2400 behold, G3756 there is not G1510.2.3 G1563 there G435 a man G575 from G3588 the ones G2730 dwelling in G* Jabish G* Gilead.
10 G2532 And G649 [3sent G1563 4there G3588 1the G4864 2congregation] G1427 twelve G5505 thousand G435 men G575 from G3588 the G5207 sons G3588 of the G1411 force. G2532 And G1781 they gave charge G1473 to them, G3004 saying, G4198 Go G2532 and G3960 strike G3956 all G3588 the G2730 ones dwelling in G* Jabish G* Gilead G1722 by G4750 the mouth G4501 of the broadsword, G2532 even G3588 the G1135 women G2532 and G3588 the G2992 people!
11 G2532 And G3778 this G3588 is the G3056 word G3739 which G4160 you shall do. G3956 Every G732.1 male G2532 and G3956 every G1135 woman G1097 knowing G2845 the marriage-bed G730 of a man G332 you shall devote to consumption.
12 G2532 And G2147 they found G575 of G2730 ones dwelling G* Jabish G* Gilead G5071 four hundred G3494.1 young women G3933 virgins, G3588 the ones G3756 that knew not G1097 G435 a man, G1519 in G2845 the marriage-bed G730 of a man. G2532 And G71 they led G1473 them G1519 into G3588 the G3925 camp G1519 in G* Shiloh G3739 which G1510.2.3 is G1722 in G1093 the land G* of Canaan.

15 G2532 And G3588 the G2992 people G3870 were comforted G1909 concerning G3588 G* Benjamin, G3754 for G4160 [3made G3588 1the G2962 2 lord] G1249.1 a breach G1722 among G3588 the G5443 tribes G* of Israel.
16 G2532 And G2036 [5said G3588 1the G4245 2elders G3588 3of the G4864 4congregation], G5100 What G4160 shall we do G3588 to the G1954 remaining G1519 for G3588 G1135 wives, G3754 now that G853 [2was removed G1537 3from G3588 G* 4Benjamin G1135 1 the woman]?

18 G2532 For G1473 we G3756 are not G1410 able G1325 to give G1473 to them G1135 wives G575 from G3588 G2364 our daughters, G1473 G3754 for G3660 [4swore by an oath G3588 1the G5207 2sons G* 3of Israel], G3004 saying, G1944 Accursed is G3588 the G1325 one giving G1135 a wife G3588 G* to Benjamin.
19 G2532 And G2036 they said, G2400 Behold, G1859 there is a holiday G3588 to the G2962 lord G1722 in G* Shiloh G575 from G2250 days G1519 to G2250 days, G3739 which G1510.2.3 is G575 from G1005 the north G3588 G* of Beth-el, G2596 according to G395 the rising G2246 of the sun, G1722 upon G3588 the G1353.1 corridor G3588 G305 ascending G1537 from G* Beth-el G1519 unto G* Shechem, G2532 and G575 from G3558 south G3588 of G* Lebonah.
20 G2532 And G1781 they gave charge G3588 to the G5207 sons G* of Benjamin, G3004 saying, G565 Go forth G2532 and G1748 lie in wait G1722 at G3588 the G290 vineyards!

G2532 then G565 you shall depart G1519 unto G3588 the G1093 land G* of Benjamin.
22 G2532 And G1510.8.3 it will be G3752 whenever G2064 [4should come G3588 G3962 1their fathers G2228 2or G3588 G80 3their brothers] G1473 G2919 to quarrel G4314 with G1473 us, G2532 that G2046 we shall say G4314 to G1473 them, G1653 Show mercy on G1473 them! G3754 for G3756 [2did not take G2983 G435 1a man] G1438 to himself G1135 a wife G1722 in G3588 the G4171 battle, G3754 for G3756 you did not G1473 G1325 give G1473 to them G2596 according to G3588 the G2540 time G3739 which G4131.2 you trespassed.
23 G2532 And G4160 [4did G3779 5thus G3588 1the G5207 2sons G* 3of Benjamin]; G2532 and G2983 they took G1135 wives G2596 according to G3588 G706 their number G1473 G575 from G3588 the ones G5523.2 dancing, G3739 whom G1283 they snatched. G2532 And G565 they went G2532 and G5290 returned G1909 unto G3588 G2817 their inheritance, G1473 G2532 and G3618 they built up G3588 the G4172 cities, G2532 and G2730 dwelt G1722 in G1473 them.
24 G2532 And G4043 [4walked G1564 5from there G3588 1the G5207 2sons G* 3of Israel] G1722 in G3588 G2540 that time, G1565 G435 each man G1519 to G3588 G5443 his tribe, G1473 G2532 and G1519 to G3588 G4772 his kin; G1473 G2532 and G1831 [2went forth G1564 3from there G435 1 each man] G1519 to G3588 G2817 his inheritance.
