Judges 12:6 DBY

4  Then Jephthah gathered all the men of Gilead and fought with E'phraim; and the men of Gilead smote E'phraim, because they said, 'You are fugitives of E'phraim, you Gileadites, in the midst of E'phraim and Manas'seh.'

5  And the Gileadites took the fords of the Jordan against the E'phraimites. And when any of the fugitives of E'phraim said, 'Let me go over,' the men of Gilead said to him, 'Are you an E'phraimite?' When he said, 'No,'

6  they said to him, 'Then say Shibboleth,' and he said, 'Sibboleth,' for he could not pronounce it right; then they seized him and slew him at the fords of the Jordan. And there fell at that time forty-two thousand of the E'phraimites.

7  Jephthah judged Israel six years. Then Jephthah the Gileadite died, and was buried in his city in Gilead.

8  After him Ibzan of Bethlehem judged Israel.
