From Judges eleventh chapter
We read up to the twelfth chapter
Gileadites need the Ephramites
Ephramites should help Gileadites
Being not helpful create bad blood
Be good as unto Holy God
There lies correct nature of man
It’s highly worthy if you can
Your neighbor you must tolerate
What brought you there never berate
Who broke your family network?
And spoilt inherited good work
Alas! The sheep with dog have mixed
Into wrong mould they all got fixed
Grievance kept deep in Shiboleth
Death in thousands for Siboleth
Ephramites can you justify
Refusing yours to satisfy?
Gileadites why are you so brash?
Is it not your brother you trash?
Do you need someone you to curb?
Oh! My God, Remember Jacob
Mankind I hear you say God’s Love
Turn all problems to him to solve
Human angle’s event gory
Stop falling short of God’s glory
When shall mankind life to gather?
Never precious life to squander
When shall man learn to be his brother’s keeper? Brother Ephraim for brotherly love failed to offer help to Brother Gilead at the time when the Ammonites were oppressing him. Secondly, if Brother Ephraim did not throw any uncalled for challenge to Brother Gilead, there would never have been a reprisal that made brother to destroy his brother. Judges 12: 1-6
