(Ἰεφθάε)

Jephthah, the Gileadite warrior who became the conqueror of the Ammonites, and whose vow compelled him to sacrifice his own daughter (Judges 11-12), is named among the men of the OT who achieved great things by faith (Hebrews 11:32). He is mentioned after Samson, though he was historically earlier, the author probably trusting his memory, or not being over-studious of minute accuracy.
