“¶ And they said, What one is there of the tribes of Israel, that came not vp to Mizpeh to the Lord ? And beholde, there came none to the campe from Iabesh Gilead to the assembly.”
King James Version (KJV)
5. And the children of Israel sayd, Who is there among all the tribes of Israel, that came not vp with the congregation vnto the Lord ? for they had made a great oath concerning him that came not vp to the Lord to Mizpeh, saying, He shall surely be put to death. 6. And the children of Israel repented them for Beniamin their brother, and said, There is one tribe cut off from Israel this day: 7. How shall wee doe for wiues for them that remaine, seeing wee haue sworne by the Lord, that wee will not giue them of our daughters to wiues? 8. ¶ And they said, What one is there of the tribes of Israel, that came not vp to Mizpeh to the Lord ? And beholde, there came none to the campe from Iabesh Gilead to the assembly. 9. For the people were numbred, and behold, there were none of the inhabitants of Iabesh Gilead there. 10. And the congregation sent thither twelue thousand men of the valiantest, and commaunded them, saying, Goe, and smite the inhabitants of Iabesh Gilead with the edge of the sword, with the women and the children. 11. And this is the thing that yee shall doe, Yee shall vtterly destroy euery male, and euery woman that hath lien by man.
