A Levite’s concubine runs from him to her father’s house at Beth-lehem; he goeth to fetch her back; is kindly entertained by her father; he departs, and comes to Gibeah of Benjamin, and his concubine with him, 1-14. An old man of Mount Ephraim entertains them, 15-21. The men of the city encompass the house, to debauch the Levite, who through necessity delivers unto them his concubine, whom they abuse to death, 22-28. He carrieth her body home; divideth it into twelve parts; sendeth them into all the coasts of Israel, 29, 30.
