Judges 12:4-6 New English Translation (NET Bible)
4 Jephthah assembled all the men of Gilead and they fought with Ephraim. The men of Gilead defeated Ephraim, because the Ephraimites insulted them, saying,[a] “You Gileadites are refugees in Ephraim, living within Ephraim’s and Manasseh’s territory.”[b] 5 The Gileadites captured the fords of the Jordan River[c] opposite Ephraim.[d] Whenever an Ephraimite fugitive[e] said, “Let me cross over,” the men of Gilead asked[f] him, “Are you an Ephraimite?” If he said, “No,” 6 then they said to him, “Say ‘Shibboleth!’”[g] If he said, “Sibboleth” (and could not pronounce the word[h] correctly), they grabbed him and executed him right there at the fords of the Jordan. On that day 42,000 Ephraimites fell dead.
