- 18 Now the sons of Israel arose, went up to Bethel, and inquired R388 of God and said, "Who shall go up first for us to battle against the sons of Benjamin?" Then the LORD said, "Judah shall go up first." 19 So the sons of Israel arose in the morning and camped against Gibeah. 20 The men of Israel went out to battle against Benjamin, and the men of Israel arrayed for battle against them at Gibeah. 21 Then the sons of Benjamin came out of Gibeah and felled R389 F322 to the ground on that day 22,000 men of Israel. 22 But the people, the men of Israel, encouraged themselves and arrayed for battle again in the place where they had arrayed themselves the first day. 23 The R390 sons of Israel went up and wept before the LORD until evening, and inquired R391 of the LORD, saying, "Shall we again draw near for battle against the sons of my brother Benjamin?" And the LORD said, "Go up against him." 24 Then the sons of Israel came F323 against the sons of Benjamin the second day. 25 Benjamin went out against F324 them from Gibeah the second day and felled F325 to the ground again 18,000 men of the sons of Israel; all these drew the sword.
