Chapter 21

The ruins of the tribe of Benjamin we read of in the foregoing chapter; now here we have, I. The lamentation which Israel made over these ruins, Jdg. 21:1-4, 6, 15. II. The provision they made for the repair of them out of the 600 men that escaped, for whom they procured wives, 1. Of the virgins of Jabesh-Gilead, when they destroyed that city for not sending its forces to the general rendezvous, Jdg. 21:5-7. 2. Of the daughters of Shiloh, Jdg. 21:16-25. And so this melancholy story concludes.
