23 The Benjaminites did so. They took to wife, from the dancers whom they carried off, as many as they themselves numbered. Then they went back to their own territory, and rebuilt their towns and settled in them.

21:23 The Binyaminites did so
The men of the tribe of Binyamin are now allowed to marry women from other tribes, overturning the oath those tribes made to prevent their daughters from marrying men from Binyamin (verse 1). This event brought about the reunification of the twelve tribes of Israel. The Talmud (Taanit 30b) records that this happened on the fifteenth day of the Hebrew month of Av, which helped turn that day into one of perpetual joy. The fact that the Children of Israel are once again united in the Land of Israel is indeed a cause for celebration.
