Jephthah dwells in the land of Tob, 1-3; is called by the elders of Gilead to command in chief against the Ammonites. He demands to be continued head after the war should cease; they swear it shall be so, 7-11. He sendeth twice messengers to the king of the Ammonites to treat of peace, but in vain, 11-28. Jephthah marcheth against him; maketh a vow; smiteth the Ammonites; performeth his vow on his daughter, 29-40.
