Many of the Jews were in reality not keeping jewish law at all. There is a reason G-d had to keep telling them to quit worshiping Idols. Because many of them still were doing exactly that! G-d never had to tell people to stop doing what they were not doing ;-) Many of those of Jewish blood were in fact not really Jewish by religious practice. The people are sorry for the bad things that they have done. They show that they are sorry by worshiping Jehovah again. And so again Jehovah helps them. Jephʹthah is chosen by the people to fight against the bad Amʹmonites. Jephʹthah wants very much for Jehovah to help him in the fight.

  New King James Version: “If You will indeed deliver the people of Ammon into my hands, then it will be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the people of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD’s, and I will offer it up as a burnt offering” (verses ).

E pictured Jephthah as residing at Mizpah, from which he made war on some foreign people who had done him great injury, and as winning a victory at the cost of his daughter. J represented him as a free-booter on foreign soil, who was commissioned by the Gileadites to avenge their wrongs, which he did without the help of the west-Jordanic tribes.

Jephthah, a judge or regent (often a hero figure) of Israel who dominates a narrative in the Book of Judges, where he is presented as an exemplar of faith for Israel in its monotheistic commitment to the Israelite tribe in Gilead (present northwest Jordan), he was banished from his home and became the head of a powerful band of brigands.

Oppressed by the rapacity of the non. After Jephthah’s actions to defeat the Ammonites, the people of Ephraim were angry with him for attacking without their help. They threatened to burn his house over him with fire (Judges ). This led to a battle between the tribes of Ephraim and Gilead.

Gilead won. Jephthah was a hero in the book of Judges, a mighty warrior and natural leader. The Bible tells of Jephthah’s terrible mistake and what it cost.

Then, in sham service to God, Gilead’s new king lit the flame that gruesomely burned his daughter to ashes in a pagan-style ritual of human sacrifice (Judges ).

Jephthah Was an Ignorant Servant. Jephthah’s grief was real, to be sure but he also had to have known that his vow meant a member of his family would die. Judges the people ask Jephthah to lead them into battle against the people of Ammon.

Judges Jephthah agrees to their request and becomes the leader of Israel. Judges Jephthah vows to sacrifice the first thing that comes out of his house to greet him if God gives him the victory against Ammon.

It is, further, one of the most enigmatic stories in the Hebrew Bible. The Ephraimites spoke disparagingly of Jephthah’s people, who were of the tribe of Manasseh. The Ephraimites spoke of Jephthah’s people as renegades, people who fall short of the high standard set by the “blue bloods” of Ephraim and Manasseh (verse 4).

That did it; it was war between the Gileadites and the Ephraimites, and the. We are told in the book of Judges Chapter 11 that Jephthah went into exile in the land of Tob " worthless men banded together with Jephthah and went our raiding with him." This tells us that Jephthah was a good leader and that he had organized a small army that followed him and were quite successful in their endeavours.

The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Avenge the people of Israel on the Midianites. Afterward you shall be gathered to your people.” So Moses spoke to the people, saying, “Arm men from among you for the war, that they may go against Midian to execute the Lord 's vengeance on Midian.
