Judges 12:7

Judges 12:7

And Jephthah judged Israel six years
After the affair of the Ephraimites, he was acknowledged by all Israel as their judge and supreme governor, but did not live long; being perhaps depressed and worn away with grief, on account of his daughter, and other troubles that attended him:

then died Jephthah the Gileadite, and was buried in one of the cities
of Gilead:
it is not said in what city he was buried, but very probably it was in his own city Mizpeh, where he dwelt. Josephus F23 says it was in his own country, Sebee, a city of Gilead.


F23 Antiqu. l. 5. c. 7. sect. 12.
