The daughters of Jepthah, Illustration from the Dore Bible 1866. In 1866, the French artist and illustrator Gustave Dore (1832–1883), published a series of 241 wood engravings for a new deluxe edition of the 1843 French translation of the Vulgate Bible, popularly known as the Bible de Tours. This new edition was known as La Grande Bible de Tours and its illustrations were immensely successful. Jepthah led the Israelites in battle against Ammon and, in exchange for defeating the Ammonites, made a vow to sacrifice whatever would come out of the door of his house first. As his daughter exited the house, he immediately regretted the vow, which would mean sacrificing his daughter to God..
