1 H376 And the men H669 of Ephraim H6817 were gathered together, H5674 and passed H6828 northward; H559 and they said H3316 unto Jephthah, H5674 Wherefore passedst thou over H3898 to fight H1121 against the children H5983 of Ammon, H7121 and didst not call H3212 us to go H8313 with thee? we will burn H1004 thy house H784 upon thee with fire.
2 H3316 And Jephthah H559 said H5971 unto them, I and my people H1961 were H3966 at great H376 strife H1121 with the children H5983 of Ammon; H2199 and when I called H3467 you, ye saved H3027 me not out of their hand.
3 H7200 And when I saw H3467 that ye saved H7760 me not, I put H5315 my life H3709 in my hand, H5674 and passed over H1121 against the children H5983 of Ammon, H3068 and Jehovah H5414 delivered H3027 them into my hand: H5927 wherefore then are ye come up H3117 unto me this day, H3898 to fight against me?
4 H3316 Then Jephthah H6908 gathered together H582 all the men H1568 of Gilead, H3898 and fought H669 with Ephraim; H582 and the men H1568 of Gilead H5221 smote H669 Ephraim, H559 because they said, H6412 Ye are fugitives H669 of Ephraim, H1568 ye Gileadites, H8432 in the midst H669 of Ephraim, H8432 and in the midst H4519 of Manasseh.
5 H1568 And the Gileadites H3920 took H4569 the fords H3383 of the Jordan H669 against the Ephraimites. H6412 And it was so, that, when any of the fugitives H669 of Ephraim H559 said, H5674 Let me go over, H582 the men H1568 of Gilead H559 said H673 unto him, Art thou an Ephraimite? H559 If he said, Nay;
6 H559 then said H559 they unto him, Say H7641 now Shibboleth; H559 and he said H5451 Sibboleth; H3559 for he could not frame H1696 to pronounce H3559 it right: H270 then they laid H7819 hold on him, and slew H4569 him at the fords H3383 of the Jordan. H5307 And there fell H6256 at that time H669 of Ephraim H705 forty H8147 and two H505 thousand.
7 H3316 And Jephthah H8199 judged H3478 Israel H8337 six H8141 years. H4191 Then died H3316 Jephthah H1569 the Gileadite, H6912 and was buried H5892 in one of the cities H1568 of Gilead.
9 H7970 And he had thirty H1121 sons; H7970 and thirty H1323 daughters H7971 he sent H2351 abroad, H7970 and thirty H1323 daughters H935 he brought H2351 in from abroad H1121 for his sons. H8199 And he judged H3478 Israel H7651 seven H8141 years.
11 H310 And after H356 him Elon H2075 the Zebulunite H8199 judged H3478 Israel; H8199 and he judged H3478 Israel H6235 ten H8141 years.
12 H356 And Elon H2075 the Zebulunite H4191 died, H6912 and was buried H357 in Aijalon H776 in the land H2074 of Zebulun.
13 H310 And after H5658 him Abdon H1121 the son H1985 of Hillel H6553 the Pirathonite H8199 judged H3478 Israel.
14 H705 And he had forty H1121 sons H7970 and thirty H1121 sons' sons, H7392 that rode H7657 on threescore and ten H5895 ass colts: H8199 and he judged H3478 Israel H8083 eight H8141 years.
