What I find odd about bible "scholars", particularly Christians, is that they never seem to ask the Jews about their own writings.
Jepthah's daughter, the question posed of the lady who had seven husbands ( I know where that came from), the saying 'Where the dead body is there the vultures will gather.' (Where there's smoke there's fire. Ie, it will be obvious)
Ya gotta ask stuff if you want to know the whole of what's going on/being said.
