1 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις καὶ βασιλεὺς οὐκ ἦν ἐν Ισραηλ καὶ ἐγένετο ἀνὴρ Λευίτης παροικῶν ἐν μηροῖς ὄρους Εφραιμ καὶ ἔλαβεν ὁ ἀνὴρ ἑαυτῷ γυναῖκα παλλακὴν ἐκ Βηθλεεμ Ιουδα 2 καὶ ὠργίσθη αὐτῷ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἀ{P'} αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς εἰς Βηθλεεμ Ιουδα καὶ ἐγένετο ἐκεῖ ἡμέρας τετράμηνον 3 καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπορεύθη κατόπισθεν αὐτῆς τοῦ λαλῆσαι ἐπὶ τὴν καρδίαν αὐτῆς τοῦ διαλλάξαι αὐτὴν ἑαυτῷ καὶ ἀπαγαγεῖν αὐτὴν πάλιν πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ με{T'} αὐτοῦ καὶ ζεῦγος ὑποζυγίων καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἕως οἴκου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς καὶ εἶδεν αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος καὶ παρῆν εἰς ἀπάντησιν αὐτοῦ 4 καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὸν ὁ γαμβρὸς αὐτοῦ ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος καὶ ἐκάθισεν με{T'} αὐτοῦ ἡμέρας τρεῖς καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον καὶ ὕπνωσαν ἐκεῖ 5 καὶ ἐγενήθη τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τετάρτῃ καὶ ὤρθρισαν τὸ πρωί καὶ ἀνέστη τοῦ ἀπελθεῖν καὶ εἶπεν ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος πρὸς τὸν γαμβρὸν αὐτοῦ στήρισον τὴν καρδίαν σου κλάσματι ἄρτου καὶ μετὰ τοῦτο πορεύεσθε 6 καὶ ἐκάθισαν καὶ ἔφαγον ἀμφότεροι ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ καὶ ἔπιον καὶ εἶπεν ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα ἀρξάμενος αὐλίσθητι καὶ ἀγαθυνθήτω ἡ καρδία σου 7 καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ ἀνὴρ ἀπελθεῖν καὶ ἐβιάσατο αὐτὸν ὁ γαμβρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ πάλιν ηὐλίσθη ἐκεῖ 8 καὶ ὤρθρισεν τὸ πρωὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ πέμπτῃ τοῦ ἀπελθεῖν καὶ εἶπεν ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος στήρισον τὴν καρδίαν σου ἄρτῳ καὶ στρατεύθητι ἕως κλίνῃ ἡ ἡμέρα καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον ἀμφότεροι 9 καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ ἀνὴρ τοῦ ἀπελθεῖν αὐτὸς καὶ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ γαμβρὸς αὐτοῦ ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος ἰδοὺ δὴ εἰς ἑσπέραν κέκλικεν ἡ ἡμέρα κατάλυσον ὧδε ἔτι σήμερον καὶ ἀγαθυνθήτω ἡ καρδία σου καὶ ὀρθριεῖτε αὔριον εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν ὑμῶν καὶ ἀπελεύσῃ εἰς τὸ σκήνωμά σου 10 καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐλισθῆναι καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ ἀπῆλθεν καὶ παρεγένοντο ἕως κατέναντι Ιεβους αὕτη ἐστὶν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ με{T'} αὐτοῦ ζεῦγος ὑποζυγίων ἐπισεσαγμένων καὶ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ με{T'} αὐτοῦ 11 ἔτι αὐτῶν ὄντων κατὰ Ιεβους καὶ ἡ ἡμέρα κεκλικυῖα σφόδρα καὶ εἶπεν τὸ παιδάριον πρὸς τὸν κύριον αὐτοῦ δεῦρο δὴ καὶ ἐκκλίνωμεν εἰς τὴν πόλιν τοῦ Ιεβουσαίου ταύτην καὶ αὐλισθῶμεν ἐν αὐτῇ 12 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ πρὸς αὐτόν οὐ μὴ ἐκκλίνω εἰς πόλιν ἀλλοτρίου ἣ οὐκ ἔστιν ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ καὶ παρελευσόμεθα ἕως Γαβαα 13 καὶ εἶπεν τῷ παιδαρίῳ αὐτοῦ δεῦρο καὶ εἰσέλθωμεν εἰς ἕνα τῶν τόπων καὶ αὐλισθῶμεν ἐν Γαβαα ἢ ἐν Ραμα 14 καὶ παρῆλθον καὶ ἀπῆλθον ἔδυ γὰρ ὁ ἥλιος ἐχόμενα τῆς Γαβαα ἥ ἐστιν τοῦ Βενιαμιν 15 καὶ ἐξέκλιναν ἐκεῖ τοῦ εἰσελθεῖν καταλῦσαι ἐν Γαβαα καὶ εἰσῆλθον καὶ ἐκάθισαν ἐν τῇ πλατείᾳ τῆς πόλεως καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἀνὴρ ὁ συνάγων αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸν οἶκον καταλῦσαι 16 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ πρεσβύτης εἰσῆλθεν ἀπὸ τῶν ἔργων αὐτοῦ ἐκ τοῦ ἀγροῦ ἑσπέρας καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ ἐξ ὄρους Εφραιμ καὶ αὐτὸς παρῴκει ἐν Γαβαα καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ τόπου υἱοὶ Βενιαμιν 17 καὶ ἀναβλέψας τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς εἶδεν τὸν ἄνδρα τὸν ὁδοιπόρον ἐν τῇ πλατείᾳ τῆς πόλεως καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ πρεσβύτης ποῦ πορεύῃ καὶ πόθεν ἔρχῃ 18 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν διαβαίνομεν ἡμεῖς ἐκ Βηθλεεμ τῆς Ιουδα ἕως μηρῶν ὄρους τοῦ Εφραιμ ἐγὼ δὲ ἐκεῖθέν εἰμι καὶ ἐπορεύθην ἕως Βηθλεεμ Ιουδα καὶ εἰς τὸν οἶκόν μου ἐγὼ ἀποτρέχω καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἀνὴρ συνάγων με εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν 19 καί γε ἄχυρα καὶ χορτάσματα ὑπάρχει τοῖς ὄνοις ἡμῶν καί γε ἄρτος καὶ οἶνος ὑπάρχει μοι καὶ τῇ δούλῃ σου καὶ τῷ παιδαρίῳ τοῖς δούλοις σου οὐκ ἔστιν ὑστέρημα παντὸς πράγματος 20 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ πρεσβύτης εἰρήνη σοι πλὴν πᾶν τὸ ὑστέρημά σου ἐ{P'} ἐμέ πλὴν ἐν τῇ πλατείᾳ μὴ καταλύσῃς 21 καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ παρέβαλεν τοῖς ὑποζυγίοις αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνίψαντο τοὺς πόδας αὐτῶν καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον 1 There was another Levite, living in the hill-country of Ephraim, that took a woman from Bethlehem-Juda for his mate; 2 but she played him false, and went back to her father’s house at Bethlehem, and stayed there four months. 3 Then her lord went after her, with one of his servants and two asses, to end the quarrel with soft words and win her back again; and as for her, she made him welcome in her father’s house. Her father, too, was glad at the news, and rejoiced to see him; 4 he was entertained as a friend, and lodged for three days with his father-in-law, eating and drinking at ease in his company. 5 On the fourth day, he would have set out early; but his father-in-law would still detain him; A mouthful of bread, to stay thy appetite, and then take the road. 6 As they sat down together to eat and drink, the father would have him wait till the morrow, and spend the day in good cheer; 7 in vain he rose up to go, his father-in-law would take no denial; he must spend the night there. 8 Even when the fifth day dawned, and the Levite was for setting out, the other would have him take a little food while the day was young, to refresh him for his journey. So they sat at table together; 9 and now the young man must take the girl with him, and summon his servant, and begone. Why, said his father-in-law, there is little day-light left now; evening draws on. Better wait one more day, and spend it in good cheer, and take thy way home to-morrow. 10 But this time his son-in-law would not listen to him; there and then he set out on his journey.

So the asses were saddled, and man and woman made their way to Jebus (which is the same as Jerusalem); 11 but even as they approached Jebus, night-fall was not far off. Master, the servant said, let us turn aside and find a lodging in this city of the Jebusites. 12 What, said his master, betake ourselves to an alien town, that is no part of Israel? No, I am for pressing on to Gabaa, 13 to find a night’s lodging there, or perhaps to Rama. 14 So they passed by Jebus and held on their way; but the sun had set before they reached Gabaa, which is a town belonging to Benjamin. 15 To it they turned aside, hoping to lodge there, but, once within, they could only sit down to rest in the main street of the town; no one would give them shelter. 16 At last an old man came by, returning late from working on his farm; he lived in Gabaa, but he, too, came from the hills of Ephraim; he was not a Benjamite like his neighbours. 17 And when he looked round and saw a traveller sitting there in the open street, he asked, Whence comest thou? And whither bound? 18 So the other told him how they were returning to their home on the slopes of the Ephraim, after a visit to Bethlehem-Juda; the House of the Lord[1] was their next halting-place. But no one will give us shelter here, said he, 19 although we have straw with us and fodder for our beasts, food enough for myself and the woman thou seest, and the servant who is with me; it is only of lodging that we stand in need. 20 Have no fear, the old man said, I will provide all thy wants; thou canst not pass the night here in the open street. 21 So he took them home, and fed their beasts for them; and now the travellers must wash their feet, and sit at table with him.
1 Fuit quidam vir Levites habitans in latere montis Ephraim, qui accepit uxorem de Bethlehem Juda: 2 quæ reliquit eum, et reversa est in domum patris sui in Bethlehem, mansitque apud eum quatuor mensibus. 3 Secutusque est eam vir suus, volens reconciliari ei, atque blandiri, et secum reducere, habens in comitatu puerum et duos asinos: quæ suscepit eum, et introduxit in domum patris sui. Quod cum audisset socer ejus, eumque vidisset, occurrit ei lætus, 4 et amplexatus est hominem. Mansitque gener in domo soceri tribus diebus, comedens cum eo et bibens familiariter. 5 Die autem quarto de nocte consurgens, proficisci voluit: quem tenuit socer, et ait ad eum: Gusta prius pauxillum panis, et conforta stomachum, et sic proficisceris. 6 Sederuntque simul, ac comederunt et biberunt. Dixitque pater puellæ ad generum suum: Quæso te ut hodie hic maneas, pariterque lætemur. 7 At ille consurgens, cœpit velle proficisci. Et nihilominus obnixe eum socer tenuit, et apud se fecit manere. 8 Mane autem facto, parabat Levites iter. Cui socer rursum: Oro te, inquit, ut paululum cibi capias, et assumptis viribus donec increscat dies, postea proficiscaris. Comederunt ergo simul. 9 Surrexitque adolescens, ut pergeret cum uxore sua et puero. Cui rursum locutus est socer: Considera quod dies ad occasum declivior sit, et propinquat ad vesperum: mane apud me etiam hodie, et duc lætum diem, et cras proficisceris ut vadas in domum tuam. 10 Noluit gener acquiescere sermonibus ejus: sed statim perrexit, et venit contra Jebus, quæ altero nomine vocatur Jerusalem, ducens secum duos asinos onustos, et concubinam. 11 Jamque erant juxta Jebus, et dies mutabatur in noctem: dixitque puer ad dominum suum: Veni, obsecro: declinemus ad urbem Jebusæorum, et maneamus in ea. 12 Cui respondit dominus: Non ingrediar oppidum gentis alienæ, quæ non est de filiis Israël: sed transibo usque Gabaa, 13 et cum illuc pervenero, manebimus in ea, aut certe in urbe Rama. 14 Transierunt ergo Jebus, et cœptum carpebant iter, occubuitque eis sol juxta Gabaa, quæ est in tribu Benjamin: 15 diverteruntque ad eam, ut manerent ibi. Quo cum intrassent, sedebant in platea civitatis, et nullus eos recipere voluit hospitio. 16 Et ecce, apparuit homo senex, revertens de agro et de opere suo vesperi, qui et ipse de monte erat Ephraim, et peregrinus habitabat in Gabaa: homines autem regionis illius erant filii Jemini. 17 Elevatisque oculis, vidit senex sedentem hominem cum sarcinulis suis in platea civitatis, et dixit ad eum: Unde venis? et quo vadis? 18 Qui respondit ei: Profecti sumus de Bethlehem Juda, et pergimus ad locum nostrum, qui est in latere montis Ephraim, unde ieramus in Bethlehem: et nunc vadimus ad domum Dei, nullusque sub tectum suum nos vult recipere, 19 habentes paleas et fœnum in asinorum pabulum, et panem ac vinum in meos et ancillæ tuæ usus, et pueri qui mecum est: nulla re indigemus nisi hospitio. 20 Cui respondit senex: Pax tecum sit, ego præbebo omnia quæ necessaria sunt: tantum, quæso, ne in platea maneas. 21 Introduxitque eum in domum suam, et pabulum asinis præbuit: ac postquam laverunt pedes suos, recepit eos in convivium.
22 αὐτῶν δὲ ἀγαθυνθέντων τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτῶν καὶ ἰδοὺ οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς πόλεως υἱοὶ παρανόμων περιεκύκλωσαν τὴν οἰκίαν καὶ ἔκρουσαν τὴν θύραν καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα τὸν κύριον τῆς οἰκίας τὸν πρεσβύτην λέγοντες ἐξάγαγε τὸν ἄνδρα τὸν εἰσελθόντα εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν σου ἵνα γνῶμεν αὐτόν 23 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ κύριος τῆς οἰκίας καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς μηδαμῶς ἀδελφοί μὴ πονηρεύσησθε δή μετὰ τὸ εἰσεληλυθέναι τὸν ἄνδρα τοῦτον εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν μου μὴ ποιήσητε τὴν ἀφροσύνην ταύτην 24 ἰδοὺ ἡ θυγάτηρ μου ἡ παρθένος καὶ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ ἐξάξω δὴ αὐτάς καὶ ταπεινώσατε αὐτὰς καὶ ποιήσατε αὐταῖς τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς ὑμῶν καὶ τῷ ἀνδρὶ τούτῳ μὴ ποιήσητε τὸ ῥῆμα τῆς ἀφροσύνης ταύτης 25 καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησαν οἱ ἄνδρες ἀκοῦσαι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπελάβετο ὁ ἀνὴρ τῆς παλλακῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξήγαγεν αὐτὴν πρὸς αὐτοὺς ἔξω καὶ ἔγνωσαν αὐτὴν καὶ ἐνέπαιξαν αὐτῇ ὅλην τὴν νύκτα ἕως τὸ πρωί καὶ ἐξαπέστειλαν αὐτὴν ἅμα τῷ ἀναβαίνειν τὸν ὄρθρον 26 καὶ ἦλθεν ἡ γυνὴ τὸ πρὸς πρωὶ καὶ ἔπεσεν παρὰ τὴν θύραν τοῦ πυλῶνος τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ ἀνδρός οὗ ἦν ὁ κύριος αὐτῆς ἐκεῖ ἕως οὗ διέφαυσεν 27 καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ κύριος αὐτῆς τὸ πρωὶ καὶ ἤνοιξεν τὰς θύρας τοῦ οἴκου καὶ ἐξῆλθεν τοῦ ἀπελθεῖν τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἰδοὺ ἡ γυνὴ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ πεπτωκυῖα παρὰ τὴν θύραν καὶ αἱ χεῖρες αὐτῆς ἐπὶ τὸ πρόθυρον 28 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτήν ἀνάστηθι καὶ ἀπέλθωμεν καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκρίθη αὐτῷ ἀλλὰ τεθνήκει καὶ ἀνέλαβεν αὐτὴν ἐπὶ τὸ ὑποζύγιον καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ ἀνὴρ καὶ ἀπῆλθεν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ 22 There, then, they sat, refreshing themselves after their journey, when suddenly wanton townsfolk beset the old man’s house and fell to beating on the door, crying aloud to the owner of the house that he must bring out his guest, to satisfy their evil pleasure. 23 So the old man went out and reasoned with them: Nay, brethren, why would you do such wrong to one who is my guest? Put away these reckless thoughts of yours. 24 I have a daughter that is a maid, and this man too has a woman with him; let me bring these out, for your lust to feed on their shame, and let us hear no more of this unnatural purpose. 25 But still they would not be satisfied; so at last the Levite brought out his own concubine, and gave her up to their pleasure. All night long they treated her with outrage, and in the morning let her go. 26 And now, as the shadows lifted, she came back to the door of the house where her lord was lodging, and there fell down; 27 so that when he opened the door next day, ready to go forward on his journey, he found his concubine there in the gate-way, with her hands spread out wide on the threshold. 28 He thought she slept; Rise up, he said, we must be on our way; then, when no answer came, he knew that she was dead. He put her body on one of the asses, and made his way home. 22 Illis epulantibus, et post laborem itineris cibo et potu reficientibus corpora, venerunt viri civitatis illius, filii Belial (id est, absque jugo), et circumdantes domum senis, fores pulsare cœperunt, clamantes ad dominum domus atque dicentes: Educ virum, qui ingressus est domum tuam, ut abutamur eo. 23 Egressusque est ad eos senex, et ait: Nolite, fratres, nolite facere malum hoc, quia ingressus est homo hospitium meum: et cessate ab hac stultitia. 24 Habeo filiam virginem, et hic homo habet concubinam: educam eas ad vos, ut humilietis eas, et vestram libidinem compleatis: tantum, obsecro, ne scelus hoc contra naturam operemini in virum. 25 Nolebant acquiescere sermonibus illius: quod cernens homo, eduxit ad eos concubinam suam, et eis tradidit illudendam: qua cum tota nocte abusi essent, dimiserunt eam mane. 26 At mulier, recedentibus tenebris, venit ad ostium domus, ubi manebat dominus suus, et ibi corruit. 27 Mane facto, surrexit homo, et aperuit ostium, ut cœptam expleret viam: et ecce concubina ejus jacebat ante ostium sparsis in limine manibus. 28 Cui ille, putans eam quiescere, loquebatur: Surge, et ambulemus. Qua nihil respondente, intelligens quod erat mortua, tulit eam, et imposuit asino, reversusque est in domum suam.
29 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔλαβεν τὴν μάχαιραν καὶ ἐπελάβετο τῆς παλλακῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐμέλισεν αὐτὴν κατὰ τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτῆς εἰς δώδεκα μερίδας καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν αὐτὰς εἰς πάσας τὰς φυλὰς Ισραηλ 30 καὶ ἐγένετο πᾶς ὁ ὁρῶν ἔλεγεν οὔτε ἐγενήθη οὔτε ὤφθη οὕτως ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἀναβάσεως υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ἐνετείλατο τοῖς ἀνδράσιν οἷς ἐξαπέστειλεν λέγων τάδε ἐρεῖτε πρὸς πάντα ἄνδρα Ισραηλ εἰ γέγονεν κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἀναβάσεως υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης θέσθε δὴ ἑαυτοῖς βουλὴν περὶ αὐτῆς καὶ λαλήσατε 29 His home once reached, he took a sword, and cut up her body, bones and all, into twelve pieces, which he sent round, this way and that, all through the land of Israel. 30 None that saw it but cried aloud, Such a deed was never done in Israel, from the day when our fathers left Egypt to this! Let every man speak his mind; resolve we in common what we mean to do. 29 Quam cum esset ingressus, arripuit gladium, et cadaver uxoris cum ossibus suis in duodecim partes ac frustra concidens, misit in omnes terminos Israël. 30 Quod cum vidissent singuli, conclamabant: Numquam res talis facta est in Israël, ex eo die quo ascenderunt patres nostri de Ægypto usque in præsens tempus: ferte sententiam, et in commune decernite quid facto opus sit.
