'Who did with her according to his vow', early-mid 19th century? Creator: Samuel Freeman
'Who did with her according to his vow', early-mid 19th century? Biblical scene, from Judges 11:39: 'And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man [was a virgin]. And it was a custom in Israel, that each year the young women of Israel go out for four days to lament the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite.' The story of the Sacrifice of Jephthah's Daughter, or Jephthah's Tragic Vow. The judge Jephthah prepares to sacrifice his daughter in obedience to the oath he swore to sacrifice the first thing that came to greet him should he gain victory against the Ammonites. He raises the knife, a boy kneels holding a bowl for the blood, and a man holds the blindfolded girl's hands behind her. Engraving after a work of 1791 by John Opie.
