34 When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah,
who should come out to meet him but his daughter,
dancing to the sound of tambourines! She was an only child.
Except for her, he had neither son nor daughter.
35 When he saw her, he tore his clothes and cried,
“Oh! My daughter! You have made me miserable
and wretched because I have made a vow
to the Lord that I cannot break.”
