Jephthah and His Successors
1 Then the men° of Ephraim° were summoned°, and they crossed° Ito Zaphon° and asaid° to Jephthah°, “Why° did you cross° over° to fight° against the sons° of Ammon° without° calling° us to go° with you? We will burn° your house° down on you.” 2 Jephthah° said° to them, “I and my people° were at great° strife° with the sons° of Ammon°; when I called° you, you did not deliver° me from their hand°. 3 When I saw° that you would not deliver° [me], I Iatook° my life° in my hands° and crossed° over° against° the sons° of Ammon°, and the LORD° gave° them into my hand°. Why° then have you come° up to me this° day° to fight° against me?” 4 Then Jephthah° gathered° all° the men° of Gilead° and fought° Ephraim°; and the men° of Gilead° Idefeated° Ephraim°, because° they said°, “You are fugitives° of Ephraim°, O Gileadites°, in the midst° of Ephraim° [and] in the midst° of Manasseh°.” 5 The Gileadites° acaptured° the fords° of the Jordan° opposite Ephraim°. And it happened° when° [any of] the fugitives° of Ephraim° said°, “Let me cross° over°,” the men° of Gilead° would say° to him, “Are you an Ephraimite°?” If he said°, “No°,” 6 then they would say° to him, “Say° now°, ‘Shibboleth°.’” But he said°, “Sibboleth°,” for he could° not Ipronounce° it correctly°. Then they seized° him and slew° him at the fords° of the Jordan°. Thus there fell° at that time° 42,000°°° of Ephraim°.

The Ephraimites, quarrelling with Jephthah, and discerned by Shibboleth, are slain by the Gileadites.
1 ¶ And the menº of Ephraimº gathered themselves together,ºª and wentºª northward,º and saidºª unto Jephthah,º Wherefore² passedst thou overºª to fightºª against the childrenº of Ammon,º and didst not² callºª us to go¹ª² with² thee? we will burnºª thine houseº upon² thee with fire.º 2 And Jephthahº saidºª unto² them, I² and my peopleº wereºª at great¹ strifeºº² with the childrenº of Ammon;º and when I calledºª you, ye deliveredºª me not² out of their hands.º² 3 And when I sawºª that² ye deliveredºª [me] not,² I putºª my lifeº in my hands,º and passed overºª against² the childrenº of Ammon,º and the LORDº deliveredºª them into my hand:º wherefore² then are ye come upºª unto² me this² day,º to fightºª against me? 4 Then Jephthahº gathered togetherºª² all² the men¹² of Gilead,º and foughtºª with² Ephraim:º and the men¹² of Gileadº smoteºª² Ephraim,º because² they said,ºª Ye² Gileaditesº [are] fugitivesº of Ephraimº amongº the Ephraimites,º [and] amongº the Manassites.º 5 And the Gileaditesº tookºª² the passagesº of Jordanº before the Ephraimites:º and it was² [so], that when² those Ephraimitesº which were escapedº said,ºª Let me go over;ºª that the men¹² of Gileadº saidºª unto him, [Art] thou² an Ephraimite?º If he said,ºª Nay;² 6 Then saidºª they unto him, Sayºª now² Shibboleth:º and he saidºª Sibboleth:º for he could not² frameºª to pronounceºª [it] right.¹ª² Then they tookºª him, and slewºª him at² the passagesº of Jordan:º and there fellºª at that² timeº of the Ephraimitesº² fortyº and twoº thousand.º
