Bushes 35:16 - 21 (STRIV)

All quotations are from the Standard-Text Revised International Version (STRIV), unless otherwise noted.

16 His daughter, Jenna, the wife of Francisco, was pregnant and near the time of delivery. A messenger arrived to tell her, "Your father has been deposed as king, and there are even now bands of men roaming the countryside, seeking to eliminate his family from the earth," and she was afraid.

17 "Where can I go?" asked Jenna, "What place is safe for me?" And the messenger replied, 18 "I know of a place, not far from here, but you will have to travel on foot, and wear these rags as a disguise, lest your enemies recognize you."

19 So Jenna put on the rags, and they walked through the brush together, to a small house, where the messenger, whose name was Amminadab, made Jenna comfortable. 20 But when they arrived, she was overcome by fatigue, and went into labor and gave birth, but her labor pains were too great. As she was dying, the messenger's wife, who was attending her, told her, "Take heart; you have given birth to a son."

21 Jenna named her son Ichabod,a, saying, "The glory has left my family; now we will be subject to the law like anyone else," and then she died and was buried at Kidron-Habesh, in a pauper's cemetery, without a marker.

a21 Ichabod means no glory.
