http://www.uscj.org.il/haftarah/hukkat5761.html "Shouldn?t Jephtah have gone to Pinchas the High Priest to annul his vow and save his daughter from the terrible fate that he had brought upon her? What happened? Jephtah said to himself: ?I am the chief and leader of the Israelites so why should I go to Pinchas.? Pinchas said to himself: ?I am the High Priest, the son of the High Priest, so why should I go to that boor.? Because of the arrogance of these two leaders, the poor girl perished. Both of them bear the responsibility for her loss... In time each of them was punished. (Adapted from Koheleth Rabbah 10,15)"
