Now when Jephtha was dead, Ibzan took the government, being of the
tribe of Judah, and of the city of Bethlehem. He had sixty children, thirty
of them sons, and the rest daughters; all whom he left alive behind him,
giving the daughters in marriage to husbands, and taking wives for his
sons. He did nothing in the seven years of his administration that was
worth recording, or deserved a memorial. So he died an old man, and was
buried in his own country.
