Now the daughter of Jared was exceedingly fair. And it came to pass that she did talk with her father, and said unto him:
“Whereby hath my father so much sorrow? Hath he not read the record which our fathers brought across the great deep? Behold, is there not an account concerning them of old, that they by their secret plans did obtain kingdoms and great glory?
And now, therefore, let my father send for Akish, the son of Kimnor; and behold, I am fair, and I will dance before him, and I will please him, that he will desire me to wife; wherefore if he shall desire of thee that ye shall give unto him me to wife, then shall ye say:
’I will give her if ye will bring unto me
the head of my father, the king.’”
