Gideon Subdues the Midianites

8And the men of Ephraim said unto him, Why hast thou served us thus, that thou calledst us not, when thou wentest to fight with the Midianites? And they did chide with him sharply.H376H669H559H4100H6213H1697H7121H1980H3898H4080H7378H2394 2And he said unto them, What have I done now in comparison of you? Is not the gleaning of the grapes of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer?H559H6213H5955H669H2896H1210H44 3God hath delivered into your hands the princes of Midian, Oreb and Zeeb: and what was I able to do in comparison of you? Then their anger was abated toward him, when he had said that.H430H5414H3027H8269H4080H6159H2062H3201H6213H7307H7503H1697H1696 4And Gideon came to Jordan, and passed over, he, and the three hundred men that were with him, faint, yet pursuing them.H1439H935H3383H5674H7969H3967H376H5889H7291 5And he said unto the men of Succoth, Give, I pray you, loaves of bread unto the people that follow me; for they be faint, and I am pursuing after Zebah and Zalmunna, kings of Midian.H559H582H5523H5414H3603H3899H5971H7272H5889H7291H310H2078H6759H4428H4080 6And the princes of Succoth said, Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in thine hand, that we should give bread unto thine army?H8269H5523H559H3709H2078H6759H3027H5414H3899H6635 7And Gideon said, Therefore when the LORD hath delivered Zebah and Zalmunna into mine hand, then I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers.H1439H559H3068H5414H2078H6759H3027H1758H1320H6975H4057H1303 8And he went up thence to Penuel, and spake unto them likewise: and the men of Penuel answered him as the men of Succoth had answered him.H5927H6439H1696H2063H582H6439H6030H582H5523H6030 9And he spake also unto the men of Penuel, saying, When I come again in peace, I will break down this tower.H559H582H6439H559H7725H7965H5422H4026 10Now Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor, and their hosts with them, about fifteen thousand men, all that were left of all the hosts of the children of the east: for there fell an hundred and twenty thousand men that drew sword.H2078H6759H7174H4264H2568H6240H505H3498H4264H1121H6924H5307H3967H6242H505H376H8025H2719 11And Gideon went up by the way of them that dwelt in tents on the east of Nobah and Jogbehah, and smote the host; for the host was secure.H1439H5927H1870H7931H168H6924H5025H3011H5221H4264H4264H983 12And when Zebah and Zalmunna fled, he pursued after them, and took the two kings of Midian, Zebah and Zalmunna, and discomfited all the host.H2078H6759H5127H7291H310H3920H8147H4428H4080H2078H6759H2729H4264 13And Gideon the son of Joash returned from battle before the sun was up,H1439H1121H3101H7725H4421H4608H2775 14And caught a young man of the men of Succoth, and enquired of him: and he described unto him the princes of Succoth, and the elders thereof, even threescore and seventeen men.H3920H5288H582H5523H7592H3789H8269H5523H2205H7657H7651H376 15And he came unto the men of Succoth, and said, Behold Zebah and Zalmunna, with whom ye did upbraid me, saying, Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in thine hand, that we should give bread unto thy men that are weary?H935H582H5523H559H2078H6759H2778H559H3709H2078H6759H3027H5414H3899H582H3287 16And he took the elders of the city, and thorns of the wilderness and briers, and with them he taught the men of Succoth.H3947H2205H5892H6975H4057H1303H3045H582H5523 17And he beat down the tower of Penuel, and slew the men of the city.H5422H4026H6439H2026H582H5892 18Then said he unto Zebah and Zalmunna, What manner of men were they whom ye slew at Tabor? And they answered, As thou art, so were they; each one resembled the children of a king.H559H2078H6759H375H582H2026H8396H559H3644H259H8389H1121H4428 19And he said, They were my brethren, even the sons of my mother: as the LORD liveth, if ye had saved them alive, I would not slay you.H559H251H1121H517H3068H2416H3863H2421H2026 20And he said unto Jether his firstborn, Up, and slay them. But the youth drew not his sword: for he feared, because he was yet a youth.H559H3500H1060H6965H2026H5288H8025H2719H3372H5288 21Then Zebah and Zalmunna said, Rise thou, and fall upon us: for as the man is, so is his strength. And Gideon arose, and slew Zebah and Zalmunna, and took away the ornaments that were on their camels' necks.H2078H6759H559H6965H6293H376H1369H1439H6965H2026H2078H6759H3947H7720H1581H6677

Gideon’s Ephod

22Then the men of Israel said unto Gideon, Rule thou over us, both thou, and thy son, and thy son's son also: for thou hast delivered us from the hand of Midian.H376H3478H559H1439H4910H1121H1121H1121H3467H3027H4080 23And Gideon said unto them, I will not rule over you, neither shall my son rule over you: the LORD shall rule over you.H1439H559H4910H1121H4910H3068H4910 24And Gideon said unto them, I would desire a request of you, that ye would give me every man the earrings of his prey. (For they had golden earrings, because they were Ishmaelites.)H1439H559H7592H7596H5414H376H5141H7998H2091H5141H3459 25And they answered, We will willingly give them. And they spread a garment, and did cast therein every man the earrings of his prey.H559H5414H5414H6566H8071H7993H376H5141H7998 26And the weight of the golden earrings that he requested was a thousand and seven hundred shekels of gold; beside ornaments, and collars, and purple raiment that was on the kings of Midian, and beside the chains that were about their camels' necks.H4948H2091H5141H7592H505H7651H3967H2091H7720H5188H713H899H4428H4080H6060H1581H6677 27And Gideon made an ephod thereof, and put it in his city, even in Ophrah: and all Israel went thither a whoring after it: which thing became a snare unto Gideon, and to his house.H1439H6213H646H3322H5892H6084H3478H2181H310H4170H1439H1004 28Thus was Midian subdued before the children of Israel, so that they lifted up their heads no more. And the country was in quietness forty years in the days of Gideon.H4080H3665H6440H1121H3478H5375H7218H3254H776H8252H705H8141H3117H1439

Death of Gideon

29And Jerubbaal the son of Joash went and dwelt in his own house.H3378H1121H3101H3212H3427H1004 30And Gideon had threescore and ten sons of his body begotten: for he had many wives.H1439H7657H1121H3409H3318H7227H802 31And his concubine that was in Shechem, she also bare him a son, whose name he called Abimelech.H6370H7927H3205H1121H8034H7760H40 32And Gideon the son of Joash died in a good old age, and was buried in the sepulchre of Joash his father, in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.H1439H1121H3101H4191H2896H7872H6912H6913H3101H1H6084H33 33And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon was dead, that the children of Israel turned again, and went a whoring after Baalim, and made Baalberith their god.H1439H4191H1121H3478H7725H2181H310H1168H7760H1170H430 34And the children of Israel remembered not the LORD their God, who had delivered them out of the hands of all their enemies on every side:H1121H3478H2142H3068H430H5337H3027H341H5439 35Neither shewed they kindness to the house of Jerubbaal, namely, Gideon, according to all the goodness which he had shewed unto Israel.H6213H2617H1004H3378H1439H2896H6213H3478
