1 And the men of Ephraim assembled [themselves], and passed on to the north, and said to Jephthae, Wherefore didst thou go over to fight with the children of Ammon, and didst not call us to go with thee? we will burn thy house over thee with fire. 2 And Jephthae said to them, I and my people and the children of Ammon were very much engaged in war; and I called for you, and ye did not save me out of their hand. 3 And I saw that thou wert no helper, and I put my life in my hand, and passed on to the sons of Ammon; and the Lord delivered them into my hand: and wherefore are ye come up against me this day to fight with me? 4 And Jephthae gathered all the men of Galaad, and fought with Ephraim; and the men of Galaad smote Ephraim, because they that were escaped of Ephraim said, Ye [are] of Galaad in the midst of Ephraim and in the midst of Manasse. 5 And Galaad took the fords of Jordan before Ephraim; and they that escaped of Ephraim said to them, Let us go over: and the men of Galaad said, Art thou an Ephrathite? and he said, No. 6 Then they said to him, Say now Stachys; and he did not rightly pronounce it so: and they took him, and slew him at the fords of Jordan; and there fell at that time of Ephraim two and forty thousand. 7 And Jephthae judged Israel six years; and Jephthae the Galaadite died, and was buried in his city Galaad. 8 And after him Abaissan of Bethleem judged Israel. 9 And he had thirty sons, and thirty daughters, whom he sent forth; and he brought in thirty daughters for his sons from without; and he judged Israel seven years. 10 And Abaissan died, and was buried in Bethleem. 11 And after him Aelom of Zabulon judged Israel ten years. 12 And Aelom of Zabulon died, and was buried in Aelom in the land of Zabulon. 13 And after him Abdon the son of Ellel, the Pharathonite, judged Israel. 14 And he had forty sons, and thirty grandsons, that rode upon seventy colts: and he judged Israel eight years. 15 And Abdon the son of Ellel, the Pharathonite, died, and was buried in Pharathon in the land of Ephraim in the mount of Amalec. ΚΑΙ ἐβόησεν ἀνὴρ ᾿Εφραίμ, καὶ παρῆλθαν εἰς βορρᾶν καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς ᾿Ιεφθάε· διατὶ παρῆλθες παρατάξασθαι ἐν υἱοῖς ᾿Αμμὼν καὶ ἡμᾶς οὐ κέκληκας πορευθῆναι μετὰ σοῦ; τὸν οἶκόν σου ἐμπρήσομεν ἐπὶ σὲ ἐν πυρί. 2 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτοὺς ᾿Ιεφθάε· ἀνὴρ μαχητὴς ἤμην ἐγὼ καὶ ὁ λαός μου, καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Αμμὼν σφόδρα· καὶ ἐβόησα ὑμᾶς, καὶ οὐκ ἐσώσατέ με ἐκ χειρὸς αὐτῶν. 3 καὶ εἶδον ὅτι οὐκ εἶ σωτήρ, καὶ ἔθηκα τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐν χειρί μου καὶ παρῆλθον πρὸς υἱοὺς ᾿Αμμών, καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος ἐν χειρί μου· καὶ εἰς τί ἀνέβητε ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ παρατάξασθαι ἐν ἐμοί; 4 καὶ συνέστρεψεν ᾿Ιεφθάε πάντας τοὺς ἄνδρας Γαλαὰδ καὶ παρετάξατο τῷ ᾿Εφραίμ, καὶ ἐπάταξαν ἄνδρες Γαλαὰδ τὸν ᾿Εφραίμ, ὅτι εἶπαν, οἱ διασωζόμενοι τοῦ ᾿Εφραὶμ ἡμεῖς, Γαλαὰδ ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ Μανασσῆ. 5 καὶ προκατελάβετο Γαλαὰδ τὰς διαβάσεις τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου τοῦ ᾿Εφραίμ, καὶ εἶπαν αὐτοῖς οἱ διασωζόμενοι ᾿Εφραίμ· διαβῶμεν, καὶ εἶπαν αὐτοῖς οἱ ἄνδρες Γαλαάδ· μὴ ᾿Εφραθίτης εἶ; καὶ εἶπεν· οὔ. 6 καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ· εἶπον δὴ Στάχυς· καὶ οὐ κατεύθυνε τοῦ λαλῆσαι οὕτως. καὶ ἐπελάβοντο αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔθυσαν αὐτὸν πρὸς τὰς διαβάσεις τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου, καὶ ἔπεσαν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἀπὸ ᾿Εφραὶμ δύο καὶ τεσσαράκοντα χιλιάδες. 7 καὶ ἔκρινεν ᾿Ιεφθάε τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἓξ ἔτη. καὶ ἀπέθανεν ᾿Ιεφθάε ὁ Γαλααδίτης, καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν πόλει αὐτοῦ Γαλαάδ. 8 Καὶ ἔκρινε μετ᾿ αὐτὸν τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ᾿Αβαισσὰν ἀπὸ Βαιθλεέμ. 9 καὶ ἦσαν αὐτῷ τριάκοντα υἱοὶ καὶ τριάκοντα θυγατέρες, ἃς ἐξαπέστειλεν ἔξω, καὶ τριάκοντα θυγατέρας εἰσήνεγκε τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ ἔξωθεν. καὶ ἔκρινε τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἑπτὰ ἔτη. 10 καὶ ἀπέθανεν ᾿Αβαισσὰν καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν Βαιθλεέμ. 11 καὶ ἔκρινε μετ᾿ αὐτὸν τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ Αἰλὼμ ὁ Ζαβουλωνίτης δέκα ἔτη. 12 καὶ ἀπέθανεν Αἰλὼμ ὁ Ζαβουλωνίτης καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν Αἰλὼμ ἐν γῇ Ζαβουλών. 13 καὶ ἔκρινε μετ᾿ αὐτὸν τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ᾿Αβδὼν υἱὸς ᾿Ελλὴλ ὁ Φαραθωνίτης. 14 καὶ ἦσαν αὐτῷ τεσσαράκοντα υἱοὶ καὶ τριάκοντα υἱῶν υἱοὶ ἐπιβαίνοντες ἐπὶ ἑβδομήκοντα πώλους. καὶ ἔκρινε τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ὀκτὼ ἔτη. 15 καὶ ἀπέθανεν ᾿Αβδὼν υἱὸς ᾿Ελλὴλ ὁ Φαραθωνίτης καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν Φαραθὼν ἐν γῇ ᾿Εφραὶμ ἐν ὄρει τοῦ ᾿Αμαλήκ.
