King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
6 Then said they unto him, Say now Shibboleth: and he said Sibboleth: for he could not frame to pronounce it right . Then they took him, and slew him at the passages of Jordan: and there fell at that time of the Ephraimites forty and two thousand. 6 they said, "All right, say 'Shibboleth.' " If he said, "Sibboleth," because he could not pronounce the word correctly, they seized him and killed him at the fords of the Jordan. Forty-two thousand Ephraimites were killed at that time.
