Judges 11:21-31

BBE 21 And the Lord, the God of Israel, gave Sihon and all his people into the hands of Israel, and they overcame them; so all the land of the Amorites, the people of that land, became Israel's. NIV 21 “Then the LORD, the God of Israel, gave Sihon and his whole army into Israel’s hands, and they defeated them. Israel took over all the land of the Amorites who lived in that country, BBE 22 All the limit of the Amorites was theirs, from the Arnon as far as the Jabbok and from the waste land even to Jordan. NIV 22 capturing all of it from the Arnon to the Jabbok and from the desert to the Jordan. BBE 23 So now the Lord, the God of Israel, has taken away their land from the Amorites and given it to his people Israel; are you then to have it? NIV 23 “Now since the LORD, the God of Israel, has driven the Amorites out before his people Israel, what right have you to take it over? BBE 24 Do you not keep the lands of those whom Chemosh your god sends out from before you? So we will keep all the lands of those whom the Lord our God sends out from before us. NIV 24 Will you not take what your god Chemosh gives you? Likewise, whatever the LORD our God has given us, we will possess. BBE 25 What! are you any better than Balak, the son of Zippor, king of Moab? Did he ever take up a cause against Israel or make war against them? NIV 25 Are you any better than Balak son of Zippor, king of Moab? Did he ever quarrel with Israel or fight with them? BBE 26 While Israel was living in Heshbon and its daughter-towns and in Aroer and its daughter-towns and in all the towns which are by the side of the Arnon, for three hundred years, why did you not get them back at that time? NIV 26 For three hundred years Israel occupied Heshbon, Aroer, the surrounding settlements and all the towns along the Arnon. Why didn’t you retake them during that time? BBE 27 So I have done no wrong against you, but you are doing wrong to me in fighting against me: may the Lord, who is Judge this day, be judge between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon. NIV 27 I have not wronged you, but you are doing me wrong by waging war against me. Let the LORD, the Judge, decide the dispute this day between the Israelites and the Ammonites.” BBE 28 The king of the children of Ammon, however, did not give ear to the words which Jephthah sent to him. NIV 28 The king of Ammon, however, paid no attention to the message Jephthah sent him. BBE 29 Then the spirit of the Lord came on Jephthah, and he went through Gilead and Manasseh, and came to Mizpeh of Gilead; and from Mizpeh of Gilead he went over to the children of Ammon. NIV 29 Then the Spirit of the LORD came on Jephthah. He crossed Gilead and Manasseh, passed through Mizpah of Gilead, and from there he advanced against the Ammonites. BBE 30 And Jephthah took an oath to the Lord, and said, If you will give the children of Ammon into my hands, NIV 30 And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD: “If you give the Ammonites into my hands, BBE 31 Then whoever comes out from the door of my house, meeting me when I come back in peace from the children of Ammon, will be the Lord's and I will give him as a burned offering. NIV 31 whatever comes out of the door of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites will be the LORD’s, and I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.”
