Jdg 11:1Now Jephthah3316 the Gileadite1569 was1961 a mighty man1368 of valor,2428 and he1931 was the son1121 of a harlot:802, 2181 and Gilead1568 begot3205 (853) Jephthah.3316
Jdg 11:2And Gilead's1568 wife802 bore3205 him sons;1121 and his wife's802 sons1121 grew up,1431 and they thrust out1644 (853) Jephthah,3316 and said559 unto him, Thou shalt not3808 inherit5157 in our father's1 house;1004 for3588 thou859 art the son1121 of a strange312 woman.802
A primitive root (highly fed and therefore wanton); to commit adultery (usually of the female, and less often of simple forniciation, rarely of involuntary ravishment); figuratively to commit idolatry (the Jewish people being regarded as the spouse of Jehovah): - (cause to) commit fornication, X continually, X great, (be an, play the) harlot, (cause to be, play the) whore, (commit, fall to) whoredom, (cause to) go a-whoring, whorish.
The first form is the feminine of H376 or H582; the second form is an irregular plural; a woman (used in the same wide sense as H582).: - [adulter]ess, each, every, female, X many, + none, one, + together, wife, woman. Often unexpressed in English.
From H309; properly hinder; generally next, other, etc.: - (an-) other (man), following, next, strange.
Probablyzonah should be rendered as in Jos_2:1, a hostess, or inn-keeper, so Targum of Jonathan, wehoo bar ittetha pundekeetha, "and he was the son of a woman, a tavern-keeper." She was very probably a Canaanite, as she is called, Jdg_11:2, a strange woman, ishah achereth, "a woman of another race;" and on this account his brethren drove him from the family, as not having a full right to the inheritance
