Wormwood - Curious Stories from the Bible. House of Blues. Webcast 1999.
Sung by the daughter of Jephthah, the Gileadite.
Jephthah is a general who depends upon the favor of YHWH to win. He vows to the Hebrew God that if He will let him win this war, he will sacrifice the first creature that comes out of his house to greet his return. Since Jephthah lives just with his only child, a dughter, it isn't much of a surprise that it is she who greets him that day. He blames her for being the first creature he saw. She takes the news rather well and heads for the country with her friends for two months before coming home to be slaughtered by her daddy. Look it up. Judges 11:31:40 From The Residents' Wormwood CD Booklet.
