Judges 12:1-6

And the men
<0376>
of Ephraim
<0669>
gathered themselves together
<06817> (8735)_,
and went
<05674> (8799)
northward
<06828>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jephthah
<03316>_,
Wherefore passedst thou over
<05674> (8804)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
against the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
and didst not call
<07121> (8804)
us to go
<03212> (8800)
with thee? we will burn
<08313> (8799)
thine house
<01004>
upon thee with fire
<0784>_.
{gathered...: Heb. were called}
And Jephthah
<03316>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, I and my people
<05971>
were
<01961> (8804)
at great
<03966>
strife
<0376> <07379>
with the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_;
and when I called
<02199> (8799)
you, ye delivered
<03467> (8689)
me not out of their hands
<03027>_.
And when I saw
<07200> (8799)
that ye delivered
<03467> (8688)
[me] not, I put
<07760> (8799)
my life
<05315>
in my hands
<03709>_,
and passed over
<05674> (8799)
against the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
and the LORD
<03068>
delivered
<05414> (8799)
them into my hand
<03027>_:
wherefore then are ye come up
<05927> (8804)
unto me this day
<03117>_,
to fight
<03898> (8736)
against me?
Then Jephthah
<03316>
gathered together
<06908> (8799)
all the men
<0582>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
and fought
<03898> (8735)
with Ephraim
<0669>_:
and the men
<0582>
of Gilead
<01568>
smote
<05221> (8686)
Ephraim
<0669>_,
because they said
<0559> (8804)_,
Ye Gileadites
<01568>
[are] fugitives
<06412>
of Ephraim
<0669>
among
<08432>
the Ephraimites
<0669>_,
[and] among
<08432>
the Manassites
<04519>_.
And the Gileadites
<01568>
took
<03920> (8799)
the passages
<04569>
of Jordan
<03383>
before the Ephraimites
<0669>_:
and it was [so], that when those Ephraimites
<0669>
which were escaped
<06412>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let me go over
<05674> (8799)_;
that the men
<0582>
of Gilead
<01568>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, [Art] thou an Ephraimite
<0673>_?
If he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Nay;
Then said
<0559> (8799)
they unto him, Say
<0559> (8798)
now Shibboleth
<07641>_:
and he said
<0559> (8799)
Sibboleth
<05451>_:
for he could not frame
<03559> (0)
to pronounce
<01696> (8763)
[it] right
<03559> (8686)_.
Then they took
<0270> (8799)
him, and slew
<07819> (8799)
him at the passages
<04569>
of Jordan
<03383>_:
and there fell
<05307> (8799)
at that time
<06256>
of the Ephraimites
<0669>
forty
<0705>
and two
<08147>
thousand
<0505>_.
