Judges 11:31  (King James Version)
Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD'S, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.
 


whatsoever, etc
Hebrew that which cometh forth, which shall
come forth
shall surely.

and I will
or, or I will, etc.
{Wehleetheehoo lah,} rather, as Dr. Randolph and others
contend, "and I will offer Him (or to Him, ie., Jehovah) a burnt offering;" for {hoo} may with much more propriety be referred to the person to whom the sacrifice was to be made, than to the thing to be sacrificed. Unless understood in this way, or as the marginal reading, it must have been the vow of a heathen or a madman. If a dog, or other uncleaned animal had met him, he could not have made it a burnt offering; or if his neighbour's wife, sons, etc., his vow gave him no right over them.
