Then the spirit of Yahweh came on Jephthah, and he passed through Gilead and Manasseh, then he passed on to Mizpeh of Gilead, and from Mizpeh of Gilead he passed on to the children of Ammon. Bible other translations

“and he passed through Gilead and Manasseh.” Jephthah is moving towards the south, and we know he was also recruiting men to fight with him. In fact, the people of Ephraim were upset he did not call them (Judg. 12:1).

“Mizpeh of Gilead.” Likely the Mizpeh that Jacob named, but the location is not exactly known now, but some likely places have been suggested.
