“That the daughters of Israel went yeerely to lament the daughter of Iephthah the Gileadite foure dayes in a yeere.”
King James Version (KJV)
37. And she said vnto her father, Let this thing be done for me: Let me alone two moneths, that I may goe vp and downe vpon the mountaines, and bewaile my virginitie, I, and my fellowes. 38. And he said, Goe. And he sent her away for two moneths, and shee went with her companions, and bewailed her virginitie vpon the mountaines. 39. And it came to passe at the ende of two moneths that shee returned vnto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man: & it was a custome in Israel, 40. That the daughters of Israel went yeerely to lament the daughter of Iephthah the Gileadite foure dayes in a yeere.
