The Levite and his Concubine

1Καὶ ἐγένετο ἀνὴρ Λευείτης παροικῶν ἐν μηροῖς ὄρους Ἐφράιμ, καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτῷ γυναῖκα παλλακὴν ἀπὸ Βηθλέεμ Ἰούδα. 2καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀπῆλθεν παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰς οἶκον πατρὸς αὐτῆς, εἰς Βηθλέεμ Ἰούδα· καὶ ἦν ἐκεῖ ἡμέρας δ᾽ μηνῶν. 3καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω αὐτῆς τοῦ λαλῆσαι ἐπὶ καρδίαν αὐτῆς, τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι αὐτὴν αὐτῷ· καὶ νεανίας αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ζεῦγος ὄνων. καὶ ἥδε εἰσήνεγκεν αὐτὸν εἰς οἶκον πατρὸς αὐτῆς· καὶ εἶδεν αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος, καὶ ηὐφράνθη εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτοῦ. 4καὶ κατέσχεν αὐτὸν ὁ γαμβρὸς αὐτοῦ ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος, καὶ ἐκάθισεν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τρεῖς ἡμέρας, καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον, καὶ ηὐλίσθησαν ἐκεῖ. 5καὶ ἐγένετο τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τετάρτῃ καὶ ὤρθρισαν τὸ πρωὶ καὶ ἀνέστη τοῦ πορευθῆναι· καὶ εἶπεν ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος πρὸς τὸν νυμφίον αὐτοῦ Στήρισόν σου τὴν καρδίαν ψωμῷ ἄρτου, καὶ μετὰ τοῦτο πορεύσεσθε. 6καὶ ἐκάθισεν καὶ ἔφαγον οἱ δύο ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ καὶ ἔπιον· καὶ εἶπεν ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα Ἄγε δὴ αὐλίσθητι, καὶ ἀγαθυνθήσεται ἡ καρδία σου. 7καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ ἀνὴρ τοῦ πορεύεσθαι· καὶ ἐβιάσατο αὐτὸν ὁ γαμβρὸς αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐκάθισεν καὶ ηὐλίσθη ἐκεῖ. 8καὶ ὤρθρισεν τὸ πρωὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ πέμπτῃ τοῦ πορευθῆναι, καὶ εἶπεν ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος Στήρισον δὴ τὴν καρδίαν σου, καὶ στράτευσον ἕως κλῖναι τὴν ἡμέραν· καὶ ἔφαγον οἱ δύο. 9καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ ἀνὴρ τοῦ πορευθῆναι, αὐτὸς καὶ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ νεανίας αὐτοῦ, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ γαμβρὸς αὐτοῦ ὁ πατὴρ τῆς νεάνιδος Ἰδοὺ δὴ ἠσθένησεν ἡ ἡμέρα εἰς τὴν ἑσπέραν· αὐλίσθητι ὧδε καὶ ἀγαθυνθήσεται ἡ καρδία σου, καὶ ὀρθριεῖτε αὔριον εἰς ὁδὸν ὑμῶν καὶ πορεύσῃ εἰς τὸ σκήνωμά σου.

10καὶ οὐκ εὐδόκησεν ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐλισθῆναι, καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ ἀπῆλθεν, καὶ ἦλθεν ἕως ἀπέναντι Ἰεβούς, αὕτη ἐστὶν Ἰερουσαλήμ· καὶ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ζεῦγος ὄνων ἐπισεσαγμένων, καὶ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ. 11καὶ ἤλθοσαν ἕως Ἰεβούς· καὶ ἡ ἡμέρα προβεβήκει σφόδρα, καὶ εἶπεν ὁ νεανίας πρὸς τὸν κύριον αὐτοῦ Δεῦρο δὴ καὶ ἐκκλίνωμεν εἰς πόλιν τοῦ Ἰεβουσεὶν ταύτην, καὶ αὐλισθῶμεν ἐν αὐτῇ. 12καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ Οὐκ ἐκκλινοῦμεν εἰς πόλιν ἀλλοτρίαν ἐν ᾗ οὐκ ἔστιν ἀπὸ υἱῶν Ἰσραὴλ ὧδε, καὶ παρελευσόμεθα ἕως Γαβαά. 13καὶ εἶπεν τῷ νεανίᾳ αὐτοῦ Δεῦρο καὶ ἐγγίσωμεν ἑνὶ τῶν τόπων, καὶ αὐλισθησόμεθα ἐν Γαβαὰ ἢ ἐν Ῥαμά. 14καὶ παρῆλθον καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν, καὶ ἔδυ ὁ ἥλιος αὐτοῖς ἐχόμενα τῆς Γαβαά, ἥ ἐστιν τῷ Βενιαμείν. 15καὶ ἐξέκλιναν ἐκεῖ τοῦ εἰσελθεῖν αὐλισθῆναι ἐν Γαβαά· καὶ εἰσῆλθον καὶ ἐκάθισαν ἐν τῇ πλατείᾳ τῆς πόλεως, καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἀνὴρ συνάγων αὐτοὺς εἰς οἰκίαν αὐλισθῆναι.

16καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ πρεσβύτης ἤρχετο ἐξ ἔργων αὐτοῦ ἐξ ἀγροῦ ἐν ἑσπέρᾳ, καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ ἦν ἐξ ὄρους Ἐφράιμ καὶ αὐτὸς παρῴκει ἐν Γαβαά, καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ τόπου υἱοὶ Βενιαμείν. 17καὶ ἦρεν τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶδεν τὸν ὁδοιπόρον ἄνδρα ἐν τῇ πλατείᾳ τῆς πόλεως· καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ πρεσβύτης Ποῦ πορεύῃ, καὶ πόθεν ἔρχῃ; 18καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν Παραπορευόμεθα ἡμεῖς ἀπὸ Βηφλέεμ Ἰούδα ἕως μηρῶν ὄρους Ἐφράιμ· ἐκεῖθεν ἐγώ εἰμι, καὶ ἐπορεύθην ἕως Βηθλέεμ Ἰούδα, καὶ εἰς τὸν οἶκόν μου ἐγὼ πορεύομαι· καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἀνὴρ συνάγων με εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν. 19καί γε ἄχυρα καὶ χορτάσματά ἐστιν τοῖς ὄνοις ἡμῶν, καὶ ἄρτοι καὶ οἶνός ἐστιν ἐμοὶ καὶ τῇ παιδίσκῃ καὶ τῷ νεανίσκῳ μετὰ τῶν παιδίων σου· οὐκ ἔστιν ὑστέρημα παντὸς πράγματος. 20καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ πρεσβύτης Εἰρήνη σοι· πλὴν πᾶν ὑστέρημά σου ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ, πλὴν ἐν τῇ πλατείᾳ οὐ μὴ αὐλισθήσῃ. 21καὶ εἰσήνεγκεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ, καὶ τόπον ἐποίησεν τοῖς ὄνοις· καὶ αὐτοὶ ἐνίψαντο τοὺς πόδας αὐτῶν, καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον.

Gibeah's Crime

22αὐτοὶ δ᾽ ἀγαθύνοντες καρδίαν αὐτῶν, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνδρες τῆς πόλεως υἱοὶ παρανόμων ἐκύκλωσαν τὴν οἰκίαν κρούοντες ἐπὶ τὴν θύραν, καὶ εἶπον πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα τὸν κύριον τοῦ οἴκου τὸν πρεσβύτην λέγοντες Ἐξένεγκε τὸν ἄνδρα ὃς εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν σου, ἵνα γνῶμεν αὐτόν. 23καὶ ἐξῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ κύριος τοῦ οἴκου καὶ εἶπεν Μή, ἀδελφοί, μὴ κακοποιήσητε δὴ μετὰ τὸ εἰσελθεῖν τὸν ἄνδρα τοῦτον εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν μου· μὴ ποιήσητε τὴν ἀφροσύνην ταύτην. 24ἴδε ἡ θυγάτηρ μου ἡ παρθένος καὶ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ. ἐξάξω αὐτάς, καὶ ταπεινώσατε αὐτὰς καὶ ποιήσατε αὐταῖς τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς ὑμῶν· καὶ τῷ ἀνδρὶ τούτῳ οὐ ποιήσετε τὸ ῥῆμα τῆς ἀφροσύνης ταύτης. 25καὶ οὐκ εὐδόκησαν οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ εἰσακοῦσαι αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐπελάβετο ὁ ἀνὴρ τῆς παλλακῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξήγαγεν αὐτὴν πρὸς αὐτοὺς ἔξω· καὶ ἔγνωσαν αὐτήν, καὶ ἐνέπαιζον ἐν αὐτῇ ὅλην τὴν νύκτα ἕως πρωί, καὶ ἐξαπέστειλαν αὐτὴν ὡς ἀνέβη τὸ πρωί. 26καὶ ἦλθεν ἡ γυνὴ πρὸς τὸν ὄρθρον, καὶ ἔπεσεν παρὰ τὴν θύραν τοῦ οἴκου οὗ ἦν αὐτῆς ἐκεῖ ὁ ἀνήρ, ἕως τοῦ διαφῶσαι.

27καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς τὸ πρωὶ καὶ ἤνοιξεν τὰς θύρας τοῦ οἴκου, καὶ ἐξῆλθεν τοῦ πορευθῆναι τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἰδοὺ ἡ γυνὴ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ πεπτωκυῖα παρὰ τὰς θύρας τοῦ οἴκου, καὶ αἱ χεῖρες αὐτῆς ἐπὶ τὸ πρόθυρον. 28καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτήν Ἀνάστα καὶ ἀπέλθωμεν· καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκρίθη, ὅτι ἦν νεκρά. καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτὴν ἐπὶ τὸν ὄνον, καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ. 29καὶ ἔλαβεν τὴν ῥομφαίαν καὶ ἐκράτησεν τὴν παλλακὴν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐμέλισεν αὐτὴν εἰς δώδεκα μέλη, καὶ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτὰ ἐν παντὶ ὁρίῳ Ἰσραήλ. 30καὶ ἐγένετο πᾶς ὁ βλέπων ἔλεγεν Οὐκ ἐγένετο καὶ οὐχ ἑόραται ὡς αὕτη ἀπὸ ἡμέρας ἀναβάσεως υἱῶν Ἰσραὴλ ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης· θέσθε ὑμῖν αὐτοὶ ἐπ᾽ αὐτὴν βουλὴν καὶ λαλήσατε.
