Why did some men in the Old Testament sacrifice their daughter or concubine? And what did the cutting of the concubine into pieces mean in Judges 19?


Judges 19:1 - 30

SMITH-VANDYKE - 1 وفي تلك الايام حين لم يكن ملك في اسرائيل كان رجل لاوي متغربا في عقاب جبل افرايم. فاتخذ له امرأة سرية من بيت لحم يهوذا. 2 فزنت عليه سريته وذهبت من عنده الى بيت ابيها في بيت لحم يهوذا وكانت هناك اياما اربعة اشهر.
