6:1 And the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] did [H6213] evil [H7451] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] : and the LORD [H3068] delivered [H5414] them into the hand [H3027] of Midian [H4080] seven [H7651] years [H8141] .

6:2 And the hand [H3027] of Midian [H4080] prevailed [H5810] against Israel [H3478] : [and] because [H6440] of the Midianites [H4080] the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] made [H6213] them the dens [H4492] which [are] in the mountains [H2022] , and caves [H4631] , and strong holds [H4679] .(prevailed: Heb. was strong)

6:3 And [so] it was, when Israel [H3478] had sown [H2232] , that the Midianites [H4080] came up [H5927] , and the Amalekites [H6002] , and the children [H1121] of the east [H6924] , even they came up [H5927] against them;

6:4 And they encamped [H2583] against them, and destroyed [H7843] the increase [H2981] of the earth [H776] , till thou come [H935] unto Gaza [H5804] , and left [H7604] no sustenance [H4241] for Israel [H3478] , neither sheep [H7716] , nor ox [H7794] , nor ass [H2543] .(sheep: or goat)

6:5 For they came up [H5927] with their cattle [H4735] and their tents [H168] , and they came [H935] [H935] as [H1767] grasshoppers [H697] for multitude [H7230] ; [for] both they and their camels [H1581] were without number [H4557] : and they entered [H935] into the land [H776] to destroy [H7843] it.

6:6 And Israel [H3478] was greatly [H3966] impoverished [H1809] because [H6440] of the Midianites [H4080] ; and the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] cried [H2199] unto the LORD [H3068] .

6:7 And it came to pass, when the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] cried [H2199] unto the LORD [H3068] because [H182] of the Midianites [H4080] ,

6:8 That the LORD [H3068] sent [H7971] a prophet [H376] [H5030] unto the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] , which said [H559] unto them, Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , I brought you up [H5927] from Egypt [H4714] , and brought you forth [H3318] out of the house [H1004] of bondage [H5650] ;(a prophet: Heb. a man a prophet)

6:9 And I delivered [H5337] you out of the hand [H3027] of the Egyptians [H4714] , and out of the hand [H3027] of all that oppressed [H3905] you, and drave them out [H1644] from before [H6440] you, and gave [H5414] you their land [H776] ;

6:10 And I said [H559] unto you, I [am] the LORD [H3068] your God [H430] ; fear [H3372] not the gods [H430] of the Amorites [H567] , in whose land [H776] ye dwell [H3427] : but ye have not obeyed [H8085] my voice [H6963] .

6:11 And there came [H935] an angel [H4397] of the LORD [H3068] , and sat [H3427] under an oak [H424] which [was] in Ophrah [H6084] , that [pertained] unto Joash [H3101] the Abiezrite [H33] : and his son [H1121] Gideon [H1439] threshed [H2251] wheat [H2406] by the winepress [H1660] , to hide [H5127] [it] from [H6440] the Midianites [H4080] .(Gideon: Gr. Gedeon)(to hide: Heb. to cause it to flee)

6:12 And the angel [H4397] of the LORD [H3068] appeared [H7200] unto him, and said [H559] unto him, The LORD [H3068] [is] with thee, thou mighty [H1368] man of valour [H2428] .

6:13 And Gideon [H1439] said [H559] unto him, Oh [H994] my Lord [H113] , if [H3426] the LORD [H3068] be with us, why then is all this befallen [H4672] us? and where [be] all his miracles [H6381] which our fathers [H1] told [H5608] us of, saying [H559] , Did not the LORD [H3068] bring us up [H5927] from Egypt [H4714] ? but now the LORD [H3068] hath forsaken [H5203] us, and delivered [H5414] us into the hands [H3709] of the Midianites [H4080] .

6:14 And the LORD [H3068] looked [H6437] upon him, and said [H559] , Go [H3212] in this thy might [H3581] , and thou shalt save [H3467] Israel [H3478] from the hand [H3709] of the Midianites [H4080] : have not I sent [H7971] thee?

6:15 And he said [H559] unto him, Oh [H994] my Lord [H136] , wherewith [H4100] shall I save [H3467] Israel [H3478] ? behold, my family [H504] [H505] [is] poor [H1800] in Manasseh [H4519] , and I [am] the least [H6810] in my father's [H1] house [H1004] .(my family: Heb. my thousand is the meanest)

6:16 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite [H5221] the Midianites [H4080] as one [H259] man [H376] .

6:17 And he said [H559] unto him, If now I have found [H4672] grace [H2580] in thy sight [H5869] , then shew [H6213] me a sign [H226] that thou talkest [H1696] with me.

6:18 Depart [H4185] not hence, I pray thee, until I come [H935] unto thee, and bring forth [H3318] my present [H4503] , and set [H3240] [it] before [H6440] thee. And he said [H559] , I will tarry [H3427] until thou come again [H7725] .(present: or, meat offering)

6:19 And Gideon [H1439] went in [H935] , and made ready [H6213] a kid [H5795] [H1423] , and unleavened cakes [H4682] of an ephah [H374] of flour [H7058] : the flesh [H1320] he put [H7760] in a basket [H5536] , and he put [H7760] the broth [H4839] in a pot [H6517] , and brought [it] out [H3318] unto him under the oak [H424] , and presented [H5066] [it].(a kid: Heb. a kid of the goats)

6:20 And the angel [H4397] of God [H430] said [H559] unto him, Take [H3947] the flesh [H1320] and the unleavened cakes [H4682] , and lay [H3240] [them] upon this [H1975] rock [H5553] , and pour out [H8210] the broth [H4839] . And he did [H6213] so.

6:21 Then the angel [H4397] of the LORD [H3068] put forth [H7971] the end [H7097] of the staff [H4938] that [was] in his hand [H3027] , and touched [H5060] the flesh [H1320] and the unleavened cakes [H4682] ; and there rose up [H5927] fire [H784] out of the rock [H6697] , and consumed [H398] the flesh [H1320] and the unleavened cakes [H4682] . Then the angel [H4397] of the LORD [H3068] departed [H1980] out of his sight [H5869] .

6:22 And when Gideon [H1439] perceived [H7200] that he [was] an angel [H4397] of the LORD [H3068] , Gideon [H1439] said [H559] , Alas [H162] , O Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ! for because [H3651] I have seen [H7200] an angel [H4397] of the LORD [H3068] face [H6440] to face [H6440] .

6:23 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto him, Peace [H7965] [be] unto thee; fear [H3372] not: thou shalt not die [H4191] .

6:24 Then Gideon [H1439] built [H1129] an altar [H4196] there unto the LORD [H3068] , and called [H7121] it Jehovahshalom [H3073] : unto this day [H3117] it [is] yet in Ophrah [H6084] of the Abiezrites [H33] .(Jehovahshalom: that is, The LORD send peace)

6:25 And it came to pass the same night [H3915] , that the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto him, Take [H3947] thy father's [H1] young [H6499] bullock [H7794] , even the second [H8145] bullock [H6499] of seven [H7651] years old [H8141] , and throw down [H2040] the altar [H4196] of Baal [H1168] that thy father [H1] hath, and cut down [H3772] the grove [H842] that [is] by it:(even: or, and)

6:26 And build [H1129] an altar [H4196] unto the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] upon the top [H7218] of this rock [H4581] , in the ordered place [H4634] , and take [H3947] the second [H8145] bullock [H6499] , and offer [H5927] a burnt sacrifice [H5930] with the wood [H6086] of the grove [H842] which thou shalt cut down [H3772] .(rock: Heb. strong place)(in the ordered: or, in an orderly manner)

6:27 Then Gideon [H1439] took [H3947] ten [H6235] men [H582] of his servants [H5650] , and did [H6213] as the LORD [H3068] had said [H1696] unto him: and [so] it was, because he feared [H3372] his father's [H1] household [H1004] , and the men [H582] of the city [H5892] , that he could not do [H6213] [it] by day [H3119] , that he did [H6213] [it] by night [H3915] .

6:28 And when the men [H582] of the city [H5892] arose early [H7925] in the morning [H1242] , behold, the altar [H4196] of Baal [H1168] was cast down [H5422] , and the grove [H842] was cut down [H3772] that [was] by it, and the second [H8145] bullock [H6499] was offered [H5927] upon the altar [H4196] [that was] built [H1129] .

6:29 And they said [H559] one [H376] to another [H7453] , Who hath done [H6213] this thing [H1697] ? And when they enquired [H1875] and asked [H1245] , they said [H559] , Gideon [H1439] the son [H1121] of Joash [H3101] hath done [H6213] this thing [H1697] .

6:30 Then the men [H582] of the city [H5892] said [H559] unto Joash [H3101] , Bring out [H3318] thy son [H1121] , that he may die [H4191] : because he hath cast down [H5422] the altar [H4196] of Baal [H1168] , and because he hath cut down [H3772] the grove [H842] that [was] by it.

6:31 And Joash [H3101] said [H559] unto all that stood [H5975] against him, Will ye plead [H7378] for Baal [H1168] ? will ye save [H3467] him? he that will plead [H7378] for him, let him be put to death [H4191] whilst [it is yet] morning [H1242] : if he [be] a god [H430] , let him plead [H7378] for himself, because [one] hath cast down [H5422] his altar [H4196] .

6:32 Therefore on that day [H3117] he called [H7121] him Jerubbaal [H3378] , saying [H559] , Let Baal [H1168] plead [H7378] against him, because he hath thrown down [H5422] his altar [H4196] .(Jerubbaal: that is, Let Baal plead)(Jerubbesheth: that is, Let the shameful thing plead)

6:33 Then all the Midianites [H4080] and the Amalekites [H6002] and the children [H1121] of the east [H6924] were gathered [H622] together [H3162] , and went over [H5674] , and pitched [H2583] in the valley [H6010] of Jezreel [H3157] .

6:34 But the Spirit [H7307] of the LORD [H3068] came [H3847] upon Gideon [H1439] , and he blew [H8628] a trumpet [H7782] ; and Abiezer [H44] was gathered [H2199] after [H310] him.(came: Heb. clothed)(gathered: Heb. called)

6:35 And he sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] throughout all Manasseh [H4519] ; who also was gathered [H2199] after [H310] him: and he sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] unto Asher [H836] , and unto Zebulun [H2074] , and unto Naphtali [H5321] ; and they came up [H5927] to meet [H7125] them.(gathered: Heb. called)

6:36 And Gideon [H1439] said [H559] unto God [H430] , If thou wilt [H3426] save [H3467] Israel [H3478] by mine hand [H3027] , as thou hast said [H1696] ,

6:37 Behold, I will put [H3322] a fleece [H1492] of wool [H6785] in the floor [H1637] ; [and] if the dew [H2919] be on the fleece [H1492] only, and [it be] dry [H2721] upon all the earth [H776] [beside], then shall I know [H3045] that thou wilt save [H3467] Israel [H3478] by mine hand [H3027] , as thou hast said [H1696] .

6:38 And it was so: for he rose up early [H7925] on the morrow [H4283] , and thrust [H2115] the fleece [H1492] together [H2115] , and wringed [H4680] the dew [H2919] out of the fleece [H1492] , a bowl [H5602] full [H4393] of water [H4325] .

6:39 And Gideon [H1439] said [H559] unto God [H430] , Let not thine anger [H639] be hot [H2734] against me, and I will speak [H1696] but this once [H6471] : let me prove [H5254] , I pray thee, but this once [H6471] with the fleece [H1492] ; let it now be dry [H2721] only upon the fleece [H1492] , and upon all the ground [H776] let there be dew [H2919] .

6:40 And God [H430] did [H6213] so that night [H3915] : for it was dry [H2721] upon the fleece [H1492] only, and there was dew [H2919] on all the ground [H776] .
