Jephthah is a character in the Hebrew Bible's Book of Judges, serving as a judge over Israel for a period of six years. The victorious Jephthah is met on his return by his daughter, his only child, Jephthah cried and said to his daughter, my daughter! You have brought me very low! but is bound by his vow: I have given my word to God, and I cannot go back on it and so Jephthah carried out his vow with her which he had vowed. The story ends by recounting how the daughters of Israel went four days each year to celebrate about the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite.
