TEXT:
The Book of Judges, Chapter 11
Several verses are skipped to shorten the story without taking away. The following verses were omitted because I feel that the omission does not affect the story at all:

Verses 7-10 (more talk between Jepthah and the elders about Jepthah becoming their leader)
12-28 (Jephthah sending messages back and forth to plan for battle)

Please feel to disagree. As long as you read the original, I'm happy. Don't take my word for it.

For those who speak English as a second language, this version might be easier to read (see above verses to see which were left out)

MISC:
The intermission visuals are all taken from wonderful classical paintings depicting the story of Jepthtah and his Daughter. The battle visuals are taken from the brilliant 19th Century etchings by Paul Gustave Doré.


CORRECTIONS, ETC:
DefenderOfAllMankind rightfully pointed out that Saul was King at the time, not just a war general. Then falchion49 points out that Kings were basically war generals during that time. So everyone is right! Yay!
