||ecce autem in Ephraim orta seditio est nam transeuntes contra aquilonem dixerunt ad Iepthae quare vadens ad pugnam contra filios Ammon vocare nos noluisti ut pergeremus tecum igitur incendimus domum tuam
But behold there arose a sedition in Ephraim. And passing towards the north, they said to Jephte: When thou wentest to fight against the children of Ammon, why wouldst thou not call us, that we might go with thee? Therefore we will burn thy house.
||quibus ille respondit disceptatio erat mihi et populo meo contra filios Ammon vehemens vocavique vos ut mihi praeberetis auxilium et facere noluistis
And he answered them: I and my people were at great strife with the children of Ammon: and I called you to assist me, and you would not do it.
||quod cernens posui in manibus meis animam meam transivique ad filios Ammon et tradidit eos Dominus in manus meas quid commerui ut adversum me consurgatis in proelium
And when I saw this, I put my life in my own hands, and passed over against the children of Ammon and the Lord delivered them into my hands. What have I deserved, that you should rise up to fight against me?
||vocatis itaque ad se cunctis viris Galaad pugnabat contra Ephraim percusseruntque viri Galaad Ephraim quia dixerat fugitivus est Galaad de Ephraim et habitat in medio Ephraim et Manasse
Then calling to him all the men of Galaad, he fought against Ephraim: and the men of Galaad defeated Ephraim, because he had said: Galaad is a fugitive of Ephraim, and dwelleth in the midst of Ephraim and Manasses.
||occupaveruntque Galaaditae vada Iordanis per quae Ephraim reversurus erat cumque venisset ad ea de Ephraim numero fugiens atque dixisset obsecro ut me transire permittas dicebant ei Galaaditae numquid Ephrateus es quo dicente non sum
And the Galaadites secured the fords of the Jordan, by which Ephraim was to return. And when any one of the number of Ephraim came thither in the flight, and said: I beseech you let me pass: the Galaadites said to him: Art thou not an Ephraimite? If he said: I am not:
||interrogabant eum dic ergo sebboleth quod interpretatur spica qui respondebat tebboleth eadem littera spicam exprimere non valens statimque adprehensum iugulabant in ipso Iordanis transitu et ceciderunt in illo tempore de Ephraim quadraginta duo milia
They asked him: Say then, Scibboleth, which is interpreted, An ear of corn. But he answered, Sibboleth, not being able to express an ear of corn by the same letter. Then presently they took him and killed him in the very passage of the Jordan. And there fell at that time of Ephraim, two and forty thousand.
||iudicavitque Iepthae Galaadites Israhel sex annis et mortuus est ac sepultus in civitate sua Galaad
And Jephte, the Galaadite, judged Israel six years: and he died, and was buried in his city of Galaad.
||post hunc iudicavit Israhel Abessan de Bethleem
After him Abesan of Bethlehem judged Israel:
||qui habuit triginta filios et totidem filias quas emittens foras maritis dedit et eiusdem numeri filiis suis accepit uxores introducens in domum suam qui septem annis iudicavit Israhel
He had thirty sons, and as many daughters, whom he sent abroad, and gave to husbands, and took wives for his sons, of the same number, bringing them into his house. And he judged Israel seven years:
||mortuusque est ac sepultus in Bethleem
And he died, and was buried in Bethlehem.
||cui successit Ahialon Zabulonites et iudicavit Israhelem decem annis
To him succeeded Ahialon, a Zabulonite: and he judged Israel ten years:
||mortuusque est ac sepultus in Zabulon
And he died, and was buried in Zabulon.
||post hunc iudicavit in Israhel Abdon filius Hellel Farathonites
After him, Abdon, the son of Illel, a Pharathonite, judged Israel:
||qui habuit quadraginta filios et triginta ex eis nepotes ascendentes super septuaginta pullos asinarum et iudicavit in Israhel octo annis
And he had forty sons, and of them thirty grandsons, mounted upon seventy ass colts, and he judged Israel eight years:
