Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:3 - Then her husband arose and went after her to speak [fn]tenderly to her in order to bring her back, [fn]taking with him his servant and a pair of donkeys. So she brought him into her father’s house, and when the girl’s father saw him, he was glad to meet him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:4 - His father-in-law, the girl’s father, detained him; and he remained with him three days. So they ate and drank and lodged there.

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:5 - Now on the fourth day they got up early in the morning, and he [fn]prepared to go; and the girl’s father said to his son-in-law, “Sustain [fn]yourself with a piece of bread, and afterward you may go.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:6 - So both of them sat down and ate and drank together; and the girl’s father said to the man, “Please be willing to spend the night, and let your heart be merry.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:7 - Then the man arose to go, but his father-in-law urged him so that he spent the night there again.

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:8 - On the fifth day he arose to go early in the morning, and the girl’s father said, “Please sustain [fn]yourself, and wait until [fn]afternoon”; so both of them ate.

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:9 - When the man arose to go along with his concubine and servant, his father-in-law, the girl’s father, said to him, “Behold now, the day has drawn [fn]to a close; please spend the night. Lo, the day is [fn]coming to an end; spend the night here that your heart may be merry. Then tomorrow you may arise early for your journey so that you may go [fn]home.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:10 - But the man was not willing to spend the night, so he arose and departed and came to a place opposite Jebus (that is, Jerusalem). And there were with him a pair of saddled donkeys; his concubine also was with him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:19 - “Yet there is both straw and fodder for our donkeys, and also bread and wine for me, [fn]your maidservant, and the young man who is with your servants; there is no lack of anything.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 19:20 - The old man said, “Peace to you. Only let me take care of all your needs; however, do not spend the night in the open square.”
