Judges 12

BBE 1 Now the men of Ephraim came together and took up arms and went over to Zaphon; and they said to Jephthah, Why did you go over to make war against the children of Ammon without sending for us to go with you? Now we will put your house on fire over you. NIV 1 The Ephraimite forces were called out, and they crossed over to Zaphon. They said to Jephthah, “Why did you go to fight the Ammonites without calling us to go with you? We’re going to burn down your house over your head.” BBE 2 And Jephthah said to them, I and my people were in danger, and the children of Ammon were very cruel to us, and when I sent for you, you gave me no help against them. NIV 2 Jephthah answered, “I and my people were engaged in a great struggle with the Ammonites, and although I called, you didn’t save me out of their hands. BBE 3 So when I saw that there was no help to be had from you, I put my life in my hand and went over against the children of Ammon, and the Lord gave them into my hands: why then have you come up to me this day to make war on me? NIV 3 When I saw that you wouldn’t help, I took my life in my hands and crossed over to fight the Ammonites, and the LORD gave me the victory over them. Now why have you come up today to fight me?” BBE 4 Then Jephthah got together all the men of Gilead and made war on Ephraim; and the men of Gilead overcame Ephraim. NIV 4 Jephthah then called together the men of Gilead and fought against Ephraim. The Gileadites struck them down because the Ephraimites had said, “You Gileadites are renegades from Ephraim and Manasseh.” BBE 5 And the Gileadites took the crossing-places of Jordan against the Ephraimites; and when any of the men of Ephraim who had gone in flight said, let me go over; the men of Gilead said to him, Are you an Ephraimite? And if he said, No; NIV 5 The Gileadites captured the fords of the Jordan leading to Ephraim, and whenever a survivor of Ephraim said, “Let me cross over,” the men of Gilead asked him, “Are you an Ephraimite?” If he replied, “No,” BBE 6 Then they said to him, Now say Shibboleth; and he said Sibboleth, and was not able to say it in the right way; then they took him and put him to death at the crossing-places of Jordan; and at that time forty-two thousand Ephraimites were put to death. NIV 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. BBE 7 Now Jephthah was judge of Israel for six years. And Jephthah the Gileadite came to his death, and his body was put to rest in his town, Mizpeh of Gilead. NIV 7 Jephthah led Israel six years. Then Jephthah the Gileadite died and was buried in a town in Gilead. BBE 8 And after him, Ibzan of Beth-lehem was judge of Israel. NIV 8 After him, Ibzan of Bethlehem led Israel. BBE 9 He had thirty sons, and thirty daughters whom he sent to other places, and he got thirty wives from other places for his sons. And he was judge of Israel for seven years. NIV 9 He had thirty sons and thirty daughters. He gave his daughters away in marriage to those outside his clan, and for his sons he brought in thirty young women as wives from outside his clan. Ibzan led Israel seven years. BBE 10 And Ibzan came to his death and his body was put to rest at Beth-lehem. NIV 10 Then Ibzan died and was buried in Bethlehem. BBE 11 And after him, Elon the Zebulonite was judge of Israel; and he was judge of Israel for ten years. NIV 11 After him, Elon the Zebulunite led Israel ten years. BBE 12 And Elon the Zebulonite came to his death, and his body was put to rest in Aijalon in the land of Zebulun. NIV 12 Then Elon died and was buried in Aijalon in the land of Zebulun. BBE 13 And after him, Abdon, the son of Hillel, the Pirathonite, was judge of Israel. NIV 13 After him, Abdon son of Hillel, from Pirathon, led Israel. BBE 14 He had forty sons and thirty sons' sons who went on seventy young asses; and he was judge of Israel for eight years. NIV 14 He had forty sons and thirty grandsons, who rode on seventy donkeys. He led Israel eight years. BBE 15 And Abdon, the son of Hillel, came to his death, and his body was put to rest in Pirathon in the land of Ephraim, in the hill-country of the Amalekites.
