Judges 12

CEB 1 The Ephraimites were called up for battle and crossed over to Zaphon. They said to Jephthah, "Why did you cross over to fight the Ammonites and not call us to go with you? We're going to burn down your house 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.” CEB 2 Jephthah replied to them, "My people and I were in a great conflict with the Ammonites. But when I cried out to you, you didn't rescue me from their power. 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. CEB 3 When I saw that you weren't going to rescue me, I risked my own life and crossed over against the Ammonites, and the LORD handed them over to me. So why have you marched against me today to fight 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?” CEB 4 So Jephthah gathered all the men of Gilead and fought the Ephraimites. The Gileadites defeated the Ephraimites, because they had said, "You are fugitives from Ephraim! Gilead stands within Ephraim and Manasseh." 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.” CEB 5 The Gileadites took control of the Jordan's crossing points into Ephraim. Whenever one of the Ephraimite fugitives said, "Let me cross," the Gileadites would ask him, "Are you an Ephraimite?" 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,” CEB 6 they would tell him, "Then say shibboleth." But he would say, "sibboleth," because he couldn't pronounce it correctly. So they would seize him and kill him at the Jordan's crossing points. Forty-two thousand of the Ephraimites fell at that time. 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. CEB 7 Jephthah led Israel for six years. Then Jephthah the Gileadite died and was buried in one of the towns in Gilead. NIV 7 Jephthah led Israel six years. Then Jephthah the Gileadite died and was buried in a town in Gilead. CEB 8 After Jephthah, Ibzan from Bethlehem led Israel. NIV 8 After him, Ibzan of Bethlehem led Israel. CEB 9 He had thirty sons and thirty daughters. He married his thirty daughters to those outside his clan, and brought in thirty young women from outside for his sons. He led 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. CEB 10 Then Ibzan died and was buried in Bethlehem. NIV 10 Then Ibzan died and was buried in Bethlehem. CEB 11 After Ibzan, Elon from Zebulun led Israel; he did so for ten years. NIV 11 After him, Elon the Zebulunite led Israel ten years. CEB 12 Then Elon the Zebulunite died and was buried in Aijalon in the land of Zebulun. NIV 12 Then Elon died and was buried in Aijalon in the land of Zebulun. CEB 13 After Elon, Abdon, Hillel's son from Pirathon, led Israel. NIV 13 After him, Abdon son of Hillel, from Pirathon, led Israel. CEB 14 He had forty sons and thirty grandsons mounted on seventy donkeys. He led Israel for eight years. NIV 14 He had forty sons and thirty grandsons, who rode on seventy donkeys. He led Israel eight years. CEB 15 Then Abdon, Hillel's son from Pirathon, died and was buried in Pirathon in the land of Ephraim, in the Amalekite highlands. NIV 15 Then Abdon son of Hillel died and was buried at Pirathon in Ephraim, in the hill country of the Amalekites.
