Judges 20

HNV 1 Then all the children of Yisra'el went out, and the congregation was assembled as one man, from Dan even to Be'er-Sheva, with the land of Gil`ad, to the LORD at Mitzpah. NIV 1 Then all Israel from Dan to Beersheba and from the land of Gilead came together as one and assembled before the LORD in Mizpah. HNV 2 The chiefs of all the people, even of all the tribes of Yisra'el, presented themselves in the assembly of the people of God, four hundred thousand footmen who drew sword. NIV 2 The leaders of all the people of the tribes of Israel took their places in the assembly of God’s people, four hundred thousand men armed with swords. HNV 3 (Now the children of Binyamin heard that the children of Yisra'el had gone up to Mitzpah.) The children of Yisra'el said, Tell us, how was this wickedness brought to pass? NIV 3 (The Benjamites heard that the Israelites had gone up to Mizpah.) Then the Israelites said, “Tell us how this awful thing happened.” HNV 4 The Levite, the husband of the woman who was murdered, answered, I came into Gevah that belongs to Binyamin, I and my concubine, to lodge. NIV 4 So the Levite, the husband of the murdered woman, said, “I and my concubine came to Gibeah in Benjamin to spend the night. HNV 5 The men of Gevah rose against me, and beset the house round about me by night; me they thought to have slain, and my concubine they forced, and she is dead. NIV 5 During the night the men of Gibeah came after me and surrounded the house, intending to kill me. They raped my concubine, and she died. HNV 6 I took my concubine, and cut her in pieces, and sent her throughout all the country of the inheritance of Yisra'el; for they have committed lewdness and folly in Yisra'el. NIV 6 I took my concubine, cut her into pieces and sent one piece to each region of Israel’s inheritance, because they committed this lewd and outrageous act in Israel. HNV 7 Behold, you children of Yisra'el, all of you, give here your advice and counsel. NIV 7 Now, all you Israelites, speak up and tell me what you have decided to do.” HNV 8 All the people arose as one man, saying, We will not any of us go to his tent, neither will we any of us turn to his house. NIV 8 All the men rose up together as one, saying, “None of us will go home. No, not one of us will return to his house. HNV 9 But now this is the thing which we will do to Gevah: [we will go up] against it by lot; NIV 9 But now this is what we’ll do to Gibeah: We’ll go up against it in the order decided by casting lots. HNV 10 and we will take ten men of one hundred throughout all the tribes of Yisra'el, and one hundred of one thousand, and a thousand out of ten thousand, to get victuals for the people, that they may do, when they come to Gevah of Binyamin, according to all the folly that they have worked in Yisra'el. NIV 10 We’ll take ten men out of every hundred from all the tribes of Israel, and a hundred from a thousand, and a thousand from ten thousand, to get provisions for the army. Then, when the army arrives at Gibeah in Benjamin, it can give them what they deserve for this outrageous act done in Israel.” HNV 11 So all the men of Yisra'el were gathered against the city, knit together as one man. NIV 11 So all the Israelites got together and united as one against the city. HNV 12 The tribes of Yisra'el sent men through all the tribe of Binyamin, saying, What wickedness is this that is happen among you? NIV 12 The tribes of Israel sent messengers throughout the tribe of Benjamin, saying, “What about this awful crime that was committed among you? HNV 13 Now therefore deliver up the men, the base fellows, who are in Gevah, that we may put them to death, and put away evil from Yisra'el. But Binyamin would not listen to the voice of their brothers the children of Yisra'el. NIV 13 Now turn those wicked men of Gibeah over to us so that we may put them to death and purge the evil from Israel.” But the Benjamites would not listen to their fellow Israelites. HNV 14 The children of Binyamin gathered themselves together out of the cities to Gevah, to go out to battle against the children of Yisra'el. NIV 14 From their towns they came together at Gibeah to fight against the Israelites. HNV 15 The children of Binyamin were numbered on that day out of the cities twenty-six thousand men who drew the sword, besides the inhabitants of Gevah, who were numbered seven hundred chosen men. NIV 15 At once the Benjamites mobilized twenty-six thousand swordsmen from their towns, in addition to seven hundred able young men from those living in Gibeah. HNV 16 Among all this people there were seven hundred chosen men left-handed; everyone could sling stones at a hair-breadth, and not miss. NIV 16 Among all these soldiers there were seven hundred select troops who were left-handed, each of whom could sling a stone at a hair and not miss. HNV 17 The men of Yisra'el, besides Binyamin, were numbered four hundred thousand men who drew sword: all these were men of war. NIV 17 Israel, apart from Benjamin, mustered four hundred thousand swordsmen, all of them fit for battle. HNV 18 The children of Yisra'el arose, and went up to Beit-El, and asked counsel of God; and they said, Who shall go up for us first to battle against the children of Binyamin? the LORD said, Yehudah [shall go up] first. NIV 18 The Israelites went up to Bethel and inquired of God. They said, “Who of us is to go up first to fight against the Benjamites?” The LORD replied, “Judah shall go first.” HNV 19 The children of Yisra'el rose up in the morning, and encamped against Gevah. NIV 19 The next morning the Israelites got up and pitched camp near Gibeah. HNV 20 The men of Yisra'el went out to battle against Binyamin; and the men of Yisra'el set the battle in array against them at Gevah. NIV 20 The Israelites went out to fight the Benjamites and took up battle positions against them at Gibeah. HNV 21 The children of Binyamin came forth out of Gevah, and destroyed down to the ground of the Yisra'elites on that day Twenty-two thousand men. NIV 21 The Benjamites came out of Gibeah and cut down twenty-two thousand Israelites on the battlefield that day. HNV 22 The people, the men of Yisra'el, encouraged themselves, and set the battle again in array in the place where they set themselves in array the first day. NIV 22 But the Israelites encouraged one another and again took up their positions where they had stationed themselves the first day. HNV 23 The children of Yisra'el went up and wept before the LORD until even; and they asked of the LORD, saying, Shall I again draw near to battle against the children of Binyamin my brother? the LORD said, Go up against him. NIV 23 The Israelites went up and wept before the LORD until evening, and they inquired of the LORD. They said, “Shall we go up again to fight against the Benjamites, our fellow Israelites?” The LORD answered, “Go up against them.” HNV 24 The children of Yisra'el came near against the children of Binyamin the second day. NIV 24 Then the Israelites drew near to Benjamin the second day. HNV 25 Binyamin went forth against them out of Gevah the second day, and destroyed down to the ground of the children of Yisra'el again eighteen thousand men; all these drew the sword. NIV 25 This time, when the Benjamites came out from Gibeah to oppose them, they cut down another eighteen thousand Israelites, all of them armed with swords. HNV 26 Then all the children of Yisra'el, and all the people, went up, and came to Beit-El, and wept, and sat there before the LORD, and fasted that day until even; and they offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before the LORD. NIV 26 Then all the Israelites, the whole army, went up to Bethel, and there they sat weeping before the LORD. They fasted that day until evening and presented burnt offerings and fellowship offerings to the LORD. HNV 27 The children of Yisra'el asked of the LORD (for the ark of the covenant of God was there in those days, NIV 27 And the Israelites inquired of the LORD. (In those days the ark of the covenant of God was there, HNV 28 and Pinechas, the son of El`azar, the son of Aharon, stood before it in those days), saying, Shall I yet again go out to battle against the children of Binyamin my brother, or shall I cease? the LORD said, Go up; for tomorrow I will deliver him into your hand. NIV 28 with Phinehas son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, ministering before it.) They asked, “Shall we go up again to fight against the Benjamites, our fellow Israelites, or not?” The LORD responded, “Go, for tomorrow I will give them into your hands.” HNV 29 Yisra'el set liers-in-wait against Gevah round about. NIV 29 Then Israel set an ambush around Gibeah. HNV 30 The children of Yisra'el went up against the children of Binyamin on the third day, and set themselves in array against Gevah, as at other times. NIV 30 They went up against the Benjamites on the third day and took up positions against Gibeah as they had done before. HNV 31 The children of Binyamin went out against the people, and were drawn away from the city; and they began to strike and kill of the people, as at other times, in the highways, of which one goes up to Beit-El, and the other to Gevah, in the field, about thirty men of Yisra'el. NIV 31 The Benjamites came out to meet them and were drawn away from the city. They began to inflict casualties on the Israelites as before, so that about thirty men fell in the open field and on the roads—the one leading to Bethel and the other to Gibeah. HNV 32 The children of Binyamin said, They are struck down before us, as at the first. But the children of Yisra'el said, Let us flee, and draw them away from the city to the highways. NIV 32 While the Benjamites were saying, “We are defeating them as before,” the Israelites were saying, “Let’s retreat and draw them away from the city to the roads.” HNV 33 All the men of Yisra'el rose up out of their place, and set themselves in array at Ba`al-Tamar: and the liers-in-wait of Yisra'el broke forth out of their place, even out of Ma`areh-Geva. NIV 33 All the men of Israel moved from their places and took up positions at Baal Tamar, and the Israelite ambush charged out of its place on the west of Gibeah. HNV 34 There came over against Gevah ten thousand chosen men out of all Yisra'el, and the battle was sore; but they didn't know that evil was close on them. NIV 34 Then ten thousand of Israel’s able young men made a frontal attack on Gibeah. The fighting was so heavy that the Benjamites did not realize how near disaster was. HNV 35 The LORD struck Binyamin before Yisra'el; and the children of Yisra'el destroyed of Binyamin that day twenty-five thousand one hundred men: all these drew the sword. NIV 35 The LORD defeated Benjamin before Israel, and on that day the Israelites struck down 25,100 Benjamites, all armed with swords. HNV 36 So the children of Binyamin saw that they were struck; for the men of Yisra'el gave place to Binyamin, because they trusted to the liers-in-wait whom they had set against Gevah. NIV 36 Then the Benjamites saw that they were beaten. Now the men of Israel had given way before Benjamin, because they relied on the ambush they had set near Gibeah. HNV 37 The liers-in-wait hurried, and rushed on Gevah; and the liers-in-wait drew themselves along, and struck all the city with the edge of the sword. NIV 37 Those who had been in ambush made a sudden dash into Gibeah, spread out and put the whole city to the sword. HNV 38 Now the appointed sign between the men of Yisra'el and the liers-in-wait was that they should make a great cloud of smoke rise up out of the city. NIV 38 The Israelites had arranged with the ambush that they should send up a great cloud of smoke from the city, HNV 39 The men of Yisra'el turned in the battle, and Binyamin began to strike and kill of the men of Yisra'el about thirty persons; for they said, Surely they are struck down before us, as in the first battle. NIV 39 and then the Israelites would counterattack. The Benjamites had begun to inflict casualties on the Israelites (about thirty), and they said, “We are defeating them as in the first battle.” HNV 40 But when the cloud began to arise up out of the city in a pillar of smoke, the Binyamini looked behind them; and, behold, the whole of the city went up in smoke to the sky. NIV 40 But when the column of smoke began to rise from the city, the Benjamites turned and saw the whole city going up in smoke. HNV 41 The men of Yisra'el turned, and the men of Binyamin were dismayed; for they saw that evil had come on them. NIV 41 Then the Israelites counterattacked, and the Benjamites were terrified, because they realized that disaster had come on them. HNV 42 Therefore they turned their backs before the men of Yisra'el to the way of the wilderness; but the battle followed hard after them; and those who came out of the cities destroyed them in the midst of it. NIV 42 So they fled before the Israelites in the direction of the wilderness, but they could not escape the battle. And the Israelites who came out of the towns cut them down there. HNV 43 They enclosed the Binyamini round about, [and] chased them, [and] trod them down at [their] resting-place, as far as over against Gevah toward the sunrise. NIV 43 They surrounded the Benjamites, chased them and easily overran them in the vicinity of Gibeah on the east. HNV 44 There fell of Binyamin eighteen thousand men; all these [were] men of valor. NIV 44 Eighteen thousand Benjamites fell, all of them valiant fighters. HNV 45 They turned and fled toward the wilderness to the rock of Rimmon: and they gleaned of them in the highways five thousand men, and followed hard after them to Gid`om, and struck of them two thousand men. NIV 45 As they turned and fled toward the wilderness to the rock of Rimmon, the Israelites cut down five thousand men along the roads. They kept pressing after the Benjamites as far as Gidom and struck down two thousand more. HNV 46 So that all who fell that day of Binyamin were twenty-five thousand men who drew the sword; all these [were] men of valor. NIV 46 On that day twenty-five thousand Benjamite swordsmen fell, all of them valiant fighters. HNV 47 But six hundred men turned and fled toward the wilderness to the rock of Rimmon, and abode in the rock of Rimmon four months. NIV 47 But six hundred of them turned and fled into the wilderness to the rock of Rimmon, where they stayed four months. HNV 48 The men of Yisra'el turned again on the children of Binyamin, and struck them with the edge of the sword, both the entire city, and the cattle, and all that they found: moreover all the cities which they found they set on fire. NIV 48 The men of Israel went back to Benjamin and put all the towns to the sword, including the animals and everything else they found. All the towns they came across they set on fire.
