Midianites Oppress Israel

6And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years.H1121H3478H6213H7451H5869H3068H3068H5414H3027H4080H7651H8141 2And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel: and because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them the dens which are in the mountains, and caves, and strong holds.H3027H4080H5810H3478H6440H4080H1121H3478H6213H4492H2022H4631H4679 3And so it was, when Israel had sown, that the Midianites came up, and the Amalekites, and the children of the east, even they came up against them;H3478H2232H4080H5927H6002H1121H6924H5927 4And they encamped against them, and destroyed the increase of the earth, till thou come unto Gaza, and left no sustenance for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass.H2583H7843H2981H776H935H5804H7604H4241H3478H7716H7794H2543 5For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came as grasshoppers for multitude; for both they and their camels were without number: and they entered into the land to destroy it.H5927H4735H168H935H935H1767H697H7230H1581H4557H935H776H7843 6And Israel was greatly impoverished because of the Midianites; and the children of Israel cried unto the LORD.H3478H3966H1809H6440H4080H1121H3478H2199H3068 7And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD because of the Midianites,H1121H3478H2199H3068H182H4080 8That the LORD sent a prophet unto the children of Israel, which said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I brought you up from Egypt, and brought you forth out of the house of bondage;H3068H7971H376H5030H1121H3478H559H559H3068H430H3478H5927H4714H3318H1004H5650 9And I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all that oppressed you, and drave them out from before you, and gave you their land;H5337H3027H4714H3027H3905H1644H6440H5414H776 10And I said unto you, I am the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice.H559H3068H430H3372H430H567H776H3427H8085H6963

Gideon

11And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites.H935H4397H3068H3427H424H6084H3101H33H1121H1439H2251H2406H1660H5127H6440H4080 12And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.H4397H3068H7200H559H3068H1368H2428 13And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.H1439H559H994H113H3426H3068H4672H6381H1H5608H559H3068H5927H4714H3068H5203H5414H3709H4080 14And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee?H3068H6437H559H3212H3581H3467H3478H3709H4080H7971 15And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house.H559H994H136H4100H3467H3478H504H505H1800H4519H6810H1H1004 16And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.H3068H559H5221H4080H259H376 17And he said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, then shew me a sign that thou talkest with me.H559H4672H2580H5869H6213H226H1696 18Depart not hence, I pray thee, until I come unto thee, and bring forth my present, and set it before thee. And he said, I will tarry until thou come again.H4185H935H3318H4503H3240H6440H559H3427H7725 19And Gideon went in, and made ready a kid, and unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought it out unto him under the oak, and presented it.H1439H935H6213H5795H1423H4682H374H7058H1320H7760H5536H7760H4839H6517H3318H424H5066 20And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so.H4397H430H559H3947H1320H4682H3240H1975H5553H8210H4839H6213 21Then the angel of the LORD put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the LORD departed out of his sight.H4397H3068H7971H7097H4938H3027H5060H1320H4682H5927H784H6697H398H1320H4682H4397H3068H1980H5869 22And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, O LORD God! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face.H1439H7200H4397H3068H1439H559H162H136H3069H3651H7200H4397H3068H6440H6440 23And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die.H3068H559H7965H3372H4191 24Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.H1439H1129H4196H3068H7121H3073H3117H6084H33 25And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Take thy father's young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath, and cut down the grove that is by it:H3915H3068H559H3947H1H6499H7794H8145H6499H7651H8141H2040H4196H1168H1H3772H842 26And build an altar unto the LORD thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the grove which thou shalt cut down.H1129H4196H3068H430H7218H4581H4634H3947H8145H6499H5927H5930H6086H842H3772 27Then Gideon took ten men of his servants, and did as the LORD had said unto him: and so it was, because he feared his father's household, and the men of the city, that he could not do it by day, that he did it by night.H1439H3947H6235H582H5650H6213H3068H1696H3372H1H1004H582H5892H6213H3119H6213H3915

Gideon Destroys the Altar of Baal

28And when the men of the city arose early in the morning, behold, the altar of Baal was cast down, and the grove was cut down that was by it, and the second bullock was offered upon the altar that was built.H582H5892H7925H1242H4196H1168H5422H842H3772H8145H6499H5927H4196H1129 29And they said one to another, Who hath done this thing? And when they enquired and asked, they said, Gideon the son of Joash hath done this thing.H559H376H7453H6213H1697H1875H1245H559H1439H1121H3101H6213H1697 30Then the men of the city said unto Joash, Bring out thy son, that he may die: because he hath cast down the altar of Baal, and because he hath cut down the grove that was by it.H582H5892H559H3101H3318H1121H4191H5422H4196H1168H3772H842 31And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead for Baal? will ye save him? he that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst it is yet morning: if he be a god, let him plead for himself, because one hath cast down his altar.H3101H559H5975H7378H1168H3467H7378H4191H1242H430H7378H5422H4196 32Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal, saying, Let Baal plead against him, because he hath thrown down his altar.H3117H7121H3378H559H1168H7378H5422H4196 33Then all the Midianites and the Amalekites and the children of the east were gathered together, and went over, and pitched in the valley of Jezreel.H4080H6002H1121H6924H622H3162H5674H2583H6010H3157 34But the Spirit of the LORD came upon Gideon, and he blew a trumpet; and Abiezer was gathered after him.H7307H3068H3847H1439H8628H7782H44H2199H310 35And he sent messengers throughout all Manasseh; who also was gathered after him: and he sent messengers unto Asher, and unto Zebulun, and unto Naphtali; and they came up to meet them.H7971H4397H4519H2199H310H7971H4397H836H2074H5321H5927H7125

The Sign of the Fleece

36And Gideon said unto God, If thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said,H1439H559H430H3426H3467H3478H3027H1696 37Behold, I will put a fleece of wool in the floor; and if the dew be on the fleece only, and it be dry upon all the earth beside, then shall I know that thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said.H3322H1492H6785H1637H2919H1492H2721H776H3045H3467H3478H3027H1696 38And it was so: for he rose up early on the morrow, and thrust the fleece together, and wringed the dew out of the fleece, a bowl full of water.H7925H4283H2115H1492H2115H4680H2919H1492H5602H4393H4325 39And Gideon said unto God, Let not thine anger be hot against me, and I will speak but this once: let me prove, I pray thee, but this once with the fleece; let it now be dry only upon the fleece, and upon all the ground let there be dew.H1439H559H430H639H2734H1696H6471H5254H6471H1492H2721H1492H776H2919 40And God did so that night: for it was dry upon the fleece only, and there was dew on all the ground.H430H6213H3915H2721H1492H2919H776
