Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

"Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection."

Jephthah against Rebel Ephraimites: Pronounce the Word

Judges 12:1-7 KJV

1. And the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and went northward, and said unto Jephthah, “Wherefore passed thou over to fight against the children of Ammon, and did not call us to go with thee? We will burn thine house upon thee with fire.”

2-3. And Jephthah said unto them, “I and my people were at great strife with the children of Ammon; and when I called you, ye delivered me not out of their hands. And when I saw that ye delivered me not, I put my life in my hands, and passed over against the children of Ammon, and the Lord delivered them into my hand: wherefore then are ye come up unto me this day, to fight against me?”

4. Then Jephthah gathered together all the men of Gilead, and fought with Ephraim: and the men of Gilead smote Ephraim, because they said, “Ye Gileadites are fugitives of Ephraim among the Ephraimites, and among the Manassites.”

5a. And the Gileadites took the passages of Jordan before the Ephraimites: and it was so, that when those Ephraimites which were escaped said, “Let me go over;” that the men of Gilead said unto him, “Art thou an Ephraimite?”

5b-6a. If he said, “Nay,” then said they unto him, “Say now ‘Shibboleth:'” and he said “Sibboleth:” for he could not frame to pronounce it right.

6b. 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.

7. And Jephthah judged Israel six years. Then died Jephthah the Gileadite, and was buried in one of the cities of Gilead.
