And Jephthah judged Israel six years. Then Jephthah the Gileadite died and was buried in one of the cities in Gilead. Bible

“was buried in one of the cities in Gilead.” The LXX has “in his city in Gilead,” but that may not be as likely. Four different readings have been recorded for this difficult line, for how can Jephthah be buried in “cities” (cp. Word Biblical Commentary). However, it has been suggested that “buried” may refer to burial ceremonies held in different cities in his honor.
