Judges 19:1-6 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 It was an era when there was no king in Israel. A Levite, living as a stranger in the backwoods hill country of Ephraim, got himself a concubine, a woman from Bethlehem in Judah. 2 But she quarreled with him and left, returning to her father's house in Bethlehem in Judah. She was there four months. 3 Then her husband decided to go after her and try to win her back. He had a servant and a pair of donkeys with him. When he arrived at her father's house, the girl's father saw him, welcomed him, and made him feel at home. 4 His father-in-law, the girl's father, pressed him to stay. He stayed with him three days; they feasted and drank and slept. 5 On the fourth day, they got up at the crack of dawn and got ready to go. But the girl's father said to his son-in-law, "Strengthen yourself with a hearty breakfast and then you can go." 6 So they sat down and ate breakfast together.
