Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary

Shibboleth

Additional Links

We meet with this word Judges 12:6; and the history connected with it concerning the men of Ephraim is not a little singular. Wherefore they could not pronounce it, is not easily explained. They used the Samech instead of the Shin. It is blessed for us that our gospel privileges are given to us upon very different terms—when we cannot speak of them, yet looking to Christ we are blessed in them.
