6 And the children of Israel repented them for Benjamin their brother, and said, There is one tribe cut off from Israel this day.
17 The Benjamite survivors must have heirs,” they said, “so that a tribe of Israel will not be wiped out.(A)
17 And they said, There must be an inheritance for them that be escaped of Benjamin, that a tribe be not destroyed out of Israel.
