1 Gileađanin Jiftah bijaše hrabar ratnik. Rodila ga bludnica, a otac mu bijaše Gilead.

2 Ali je Gileadu i njegova žena rodila sinove, pa kada su sinovi te žene odrasli, otjeraše Jiftaha govoreći mu: "Nećeš dobiti baštine od našeg oca jer si sin strane žene."

3 Jiftah zato pobježe od svoje braće i naseli se u zemlji Tobu. Ondje se oko njega okupila hrpa beskućnika koji su s njim pljačkali.

4 Poslije nekog vremena Amonci zavojštiše na Izraela.

5 Kada su Amonci napali Izraela, krenuše gileadske starješine da trže Jiftaha u zemlji Tobu.

6 "Hodi", rekoše mu, "budi nam vojvoda da ratujemo protiv Amonaca."

7 Ali Jiftah odgovori gileadskim starješinama: "Niste li me vi mrzili i otjerali iz kuće moga oca? Zašto sada dolazite k meni kada ste u nevolji?"

8 Gileadske starješine rekoše Jiftahu: "Zato smo sada došli tebi: pođi s nama, povedi rat protiv Amonaca i bit ćeš poglavar nama i svima u Gileadu."

9 Jiftah upita gileadske starješine: "Ako me odvedete natrag da ratujem protiv Amonaca te ako ih Jahve meni preda, hoću li biti vaš poglavar?"

10 "Jahve neka bude svjedokom među nama", odgovore Jiftahu gradske starješine. "Jao nama ako ne učinimo kako si rekao!"

11 I Jiftah ode sa starješinama Gileada. Narod ga postavi sebi za poglavara i vojvodu; a Jiftah je ponovio sve svoje uvjete pred Jahvom u Mispi.

12 Jiftah posla onda poslanike kralju Amonaca s porukom: "Što ima između tebe i mene da si došao ratovati protiv moje zemlje?"

13 Kralj Amonaca odgovori Jiftahovim poslanicima: "U vrijeme kada je izlazio iz Egipta, Izrael ja zaposjeo moju zemlju od Arnona do Jaboka i Jordana. Zato mi je sada dragovoljno vrati!"

14 Jiftah nanovo pošalje glasnike kralju Amonaca

15 i poruči mu: "Ovako govori Jiftah: Nije Izrael zaposjeo ni moapsku ni amonsku zemlju,

16 nego je, izišavši iz Egipta, Izrael prešao pustinjom do Crvenog mora i došao u Kadeš.

17 Tada je poslao Izrael poslanike edomskom kralju s molbom: 'Htio bih proći kroz tvoju zemlju!' Ali ga edomski kralj ne posluša. poslao ih je i moapskom kralju, ali ni on ne htjede, te Izrael ostade u Kadešu.

18 Onda je preko pustinje zaobišao edomsku i moapsku zemlju i došao na istok od moapske zemlje. Narod se utaborio s one strane Arnona ne prelazeći granice Moaba, jer Arnon bijaše moapska međa.

19 Izrael posla zatim poslanike Sihonu, amorejskom kralju, koji je vladao u Hešbonu, i poruči mu: 'Pusti nas da prođemo kroz tvoju zemlju do mjesta koje nam je određeno.'

20 Ali Sihon ne dopusti Izraelu da prođe preko njegova područja, nego skupi svu svoju vojsku koja bijaše utaborena u Jahasu i zametnu boj s Izraelom.

21 Jahve, Bog Izraelov, predade Sihona i svu njegovu vojsku u ruke Izraelu, koji ih porazi, te Izrael zaposjede svu zemlju Amorejaca koji nastavahu to područje.

22 Zaposjeo je tako svu zemlju Amorejaca od Arnona do Jaboka i od pustinje do Jordana.

23 I sada kad je Jahve, Bog Izraelov, protjerao Amorejce pred svojim narodom Izraelom, ti bi nas htio odagnati?

24 Zar ne posjeduješ sve što je tvoj bog Kemoš bio oteo starim posjednicima? Tako i sve ono što je Jahve, naš bog, oteo starim posjednicima, mi sada posjedujemo!

25 Po čemu si ti bolji od moapskog kralja Balaka, sina Siporova? Je li se i on sporio s Izraelom? Je li on ratovao protiv njega?

26 Kada se Izrael nastanio u Hešbonu i u njegovim selima, u Aroeru i u njegovim selima, a tako i po svim gradovima na obali Jordana - evo, već tri stotine godina - zašto ih tada niste oteli?

27 Nisam ja tebi skrivio nego ti meni činiš krivo ratujući protiv mene. Neka Jahve, Sudac, danas presudi između sinova Izraelovih i sinova Amonovih."

28 Ali kralj Amonaca ne posluša riječi što mu ih je poručio Jiftah.

29 Duh Jahvin siđe na Jiftaha te on pođe kroz Gileadovo i Manašeovo pleme, prođe kroz gileadsku Mispu, a od gileadske Mispe dođe iza Amonaca.

30 I Jiftah se zavjetova Jahvi: "Ako mi predaš u ruke Amonce,

31 tko prvi iziđe na vrata moje kuće u susret meni kada se budem vraćao kao pobjednik iz boja s Amoncima bit će Jahvin i njega ću prinijeti kao paljenicu."

32 Jiftah krenu protiv Amonaca da ih napadne i Jahve ih izruči u njegove ruke.

33 I porazi ih Jiftah od Aroera do blizu Minita - u dvadeset gradova - i sve do Abel Keramima. Bijaše to njihov veliki poraz; i Amonci bijahu poniženi pred Izraelom.

34 Kada se Jiftah vratio kući u Mispu, gle, iziđe mu u susret kći plešući uza zvuke bubnjeva. Bijaše mu ona jedinica, osim nje nije imao ni sina ni kćeri.

35 Ugledavši je, razdrije svoje haljine i zakuka: "Jao, kćeri moja, u veliku me tugu bacaš! Zar mi baš ti moraš donijeti nesreću! Zavjetovah se Jahvi i ne mogu zavjeta poreći."

36 Ona mu odgovori: "Oče moj, ako si učinio zavjet Jahvi, učini sa mnom kako si se zavjetovao, jer ti je Jahve dao da se osvetiš Amoncima, svojim neprijateljima."

37 Onda zamoli svog oca: "Ispuni mi ovu molbu: pusti me da budem slobodna dva mjeseca; lutat ću po gorama sa svojim drugama i oplakivati svoje djevičanstvo."

38 "Idi", reče joj on i pusti je na dva mjeseca. Ona ode sa svojim drugama i oplakivaše na gorama svoje djevičanstvo.

39 Kada su prošla dva mjeseca, ona se vrati ocu i on izvrši na njoj zavjet što ga bijaše učinio. I nikada nije upoznala čovjeka. Otada je potekao običaj u Izraelu

40 da svake godine odlaze Izraelove kćeri i oplakuju kćer Jiftaha Gileađanina četiri dana na godinu.

Exploring the Meaning of Judges 11      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Judges 11: Jephthah’s victory.

This chapter and most of the next are about the judge Jephthah. He was Gilead’s son by a prostitute, so Gilead’s other sons despised him, and drove him out from his homeland. He fled to the land of Tob, where he lived amongst reckless men. When the Ammonites made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead went to the land of Tob to ask if Jephthah would lead their army. At first, Jephthah challenged them, and asked why they would come to him for help after expelling him from their county. However, the elders swore by the Lord that they would accept him as their leader, so he agreed to go with them.

Then Jephthah sent messengers to the king of Ammon, to ask why his people were attacking Gilead. The king said that Israel had taken away their land, but Jephthah recounted to them the history of Israel’s time in the wilderness, specifically pointing out that they not made war with the nations of Canaan. The only exception was the Amorite king Sihon’s attack on Israel, in which the Israelites defended themselves and defeated the Amorites. So, Jephthah explained that Israel had not taken land from the Ammonites. But the people of Ammon did not listen, and prepared for war.

While preparing his army against the people of Ammon, Jephthah made a vow to the Lord: if He would grant Gilead victory, Jephthah would make a burnt offering of the first thing which came out from his house upon his return home. Battle ensued, and the army of Jephthah utterly defeated Ammon.

When Jephthah returned home, his daughter – his only child – came out of the house to greet him with music and dancing. He tore his clothes in despair, and told her about his vow to the Lord. His daughter told him to keep his word, and asked to be left alone for two months to lament her virginity. Then, when the time came, Jephthah carried out his vow to the Lord.

*****

Jephthah’s dealings with both the Ammonites and his own family show that serving the Lord leads us to seek peace, not conflict or war. His account of the Israelites’ struggles showed that his people had only defended themselves against other nations, but had not fanned the flames of war. We are to do the work of making peace in our lives, while upholding and defending what is true (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 1683).

The people of Ammon stand for knowing what is true, but then corrupting that truth to live a life based in falsities. For example, if we know the Lord regenerates us, and then tell ourselves that we no longer hold any responsibility for our eternal state, we have falsified the truth. This view completely distorts the truth: the Lord regenerates us as we work to live righteously (see Swedenborg’s work, Sacred Scripture 18[3]).

The spiritual meaning of a ‘daughter’ is an affection for spiritual truths and the life they offer. Affection is the offspring of feeling delight in truths; as we develop these affections, we learn to recognize that they come from the Lord, for he is the source of all good things (Arcana Caelestia 3336[2]).

Jephthah’s daughter was his deepest love, his greatest affection. She was a virgin, representing the spiritual qualities of purity and innocence. Her request for two months of solitude can be understood as our need to reflect during any giving to the Lord, to be sure that our intentions are pure, without any selfish expectations (see Swedenborg’s work, Divine Providence 121).
