8:1 And the men [H376] of Ephraim [H669] said [H559] unto him, Why hast thou [H4100] served [H6213] us thus [H1697] , that thou calledst [H7121] us not, when thou wentest [H1980] to fight [H3898] with the Midianites [H4080] ? And they did chide [H7378] with him sharply [H2394] .(Why: Heb. What thing is this thou hast done unto us)(sharply: Heb. strongly)

8:2 And he said [H559] unto them, What have I done [H6213] now in comparison of you? [Is] not the gleaning [H5955] of the grapes of Ephraim [H669] better [H2896] than the vintage [H1210] of Abiezer [H44] ?

8:3 God [H430] hath delivered [H5414] into your hands [H3027] the princes [H8269] of Midian [H4080] , Oreb [H6159] and Zeeb [H2062] : and what was I able [H3201] to do [H6213] in comparison of you? Then their anger [H7307] was abated [H7503] toward him, when he had said [H1697] that [H1696] .(anger: Heb. spirit)

8:4 And Gideon [H1439] came [H935] to Jordan [H3383] , [and] passed over [H5674] , he, and the three [H7969] hundred [H3967] men [H376] that [were] with him, faint [H5889] , yet pursuing [H7291] [them].

8:5 And he said [H559] unto the men [H582] of Succoth [H5523] , Give [H5414] , I pray you, loaves [H3603] of bread [H3899] unto the people [H5971] that follow [H7272] me; for they [be] faint [H5889] , and I am pursuing [H7291] after [H310] Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] , kings [H4428] of Midian [H4080] .

8:6 And the princes [H8269] of Succoth [H5523] said [H559] , [Are] the hands [H3709] of Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] now in thine hand [H3027] , that we should give [H5414] bread [H3899] unto thine army [H6635] ?

8:7 And Gideon [H1439] said [H559] , Therefore when the LORD [H3068] hath delivered [H5414] Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] into mine hand [H3027] , then I will tear [H1758] your flesh [H1320] with the thorns [H6975] of the wilderness [H4057] and with briers [H1303] .(tear: Heb. thresh)

8:8 And he went up [H5927] thence to Penuel [H6439] , and spake [H1696] unto them likewise [H2063] : and the men [H582] of Penuel [H6439] answered [H6030] him as the men [H582] of Succoth [H5523] had answered [H6030] [him].

8:9 And he spake [H559] also unto the men [H582] of Penuel [H6439] , saying [H559] , When I come again [H7725] in peace [H7965] , I will break down [H5422] this tower [H4026] .

8:10 Now Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] [were] in Karkor [H7174] , and their hosts [H4264] with them, about fifteen [H2568] [H6240] thousand [H505] [men], all that were left [H3498] of all the hosts [H4264] of the children [H1121] of the east [H6924] : for there fell [H5307] an hundred [H3967] and twenty [H6242] thousand [H505] men [H376] that drew [H8025] sword [H2719] .(men that: or, every one drawing a sword)

8:11 And Gideon [H1439] went up [H5927] by the way [H1870] of them that dwelt [H7931] in tents [H168] on the east [H6924] of Nobah [H5025] and Jogbehah [H3011] , and smote [H5221] the host [H4264] : for the host [H4264] was secure [H983] .

8:12 And when Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] fled [H5127] , he pursued [H7291] after [H310] them, and took [H3920] the two [H8147] kings [H4428] of Midian [H4080] , Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] , and discomfited [H2729] all the host [H4264] .(discomfited: Heb. terrified)

8:13 And Gideon [H1439] the son [H1121] of Joash [H3101] returned [H7725] from battle [H4421] before [H4608] the sun [H2775] [was up],

8:14 And caught [H3920] a young man [H5288] of the men [H582] of Succoth [H5523] , and enquired [H7592] of him: and he described [H3789] unto him the princes [H8269] of Succoth [H5523] , and the elders [H2205] thereof, [even] threescore and seventeen [H7657] [H7651] men [H376] .(described: Heb. writ)

8:15 And he came [H935] unto the men [H582] of Succoth [H5523] , and said [H559] , Behold Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] , with whom ye did upbraid [H2778] me, saying [H559] , [Are] the hands [H3709] of Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] now in thine hand [H3027] , that we should give [H5414] bread [H3899] unto thy men [H582] [that are] weary [H3287] ?

8:16 And he took [H3947] the elders [H2205] of the city [H5892] , and thorns [H6975] of the wilderness [H4057] and briers [H1303] , and with them he taught [H3045] the men [H582] of Succoth [H5523] .(taught: Heb. made to know)

8:17 And he beat down [H5422] the tower [H4026] of Penuel [H6439] , and slew [H2026] the men [H582] of the city [H5892] .

8:18 Then said [H559] he unto Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] , What [H375] manner of men [H582] [were they] whom ye slew [H2026] at Tabor [H8396] ? And they answered [H559] , As thou [H3644] [art], so [were] they; each one [H259] resembled [H8389] the children [H1121] of a king [H4428] .(resembled: Heb. according to the form, etc)

8:19 And he said [H559] , They [were] my brethren [H251] , [even] the sons [H1121] of my mother [H517] : [as] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] , if [H3863] ye had saved them alive [H2421] , I would not slay [H2026] you.

8:20 And he said [H559] unto Jether [H3500] his firstborn [H1060] , Up [H6965] , [and] slay [H2026] them. But the youth [H5288] drew [H8025] not his sword [H2719] : for he feared [H3372] , because he [was] yet a youth [H5288] .

8:21 Then Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] said [H559] , Rise [H6965] thou, and fall [H6293] upon us: for as the man [H376] [is, so is] his strength [H1369] . And Gideon [H1439] arose [H6965] , and slew [H2026] Zebah [H2078] and Zalmunna [H6759] , and took away [H3947] the ornaments [H7720] that [were] on their camels' [H1581] necks [H6677] .(ornaments: or, ornaments like the moon)

8:22 Then the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] unto Gideon [H1439] , Rule [H4910] thou over us, both thou, and thy son [H1121] , and thy son's [H1121] son [H1121] also: for thou hast delivered [H3467] us from the hand [H3027] of Midian [H4080] .

8:23 And Gideon [H1439] said [H559] unto them, I will not rule [H4910] over you, neither shall my son [H1121] rule [H4910] over you: the LORD [H3068] shall rule [H4910] over you.

8:24 And Gideon [H1439] said [H559] unto them, I would desire [H7592] a request [H7596] of you, that ye would give [H5414] me every man [H376] the earrings [H5141] of his prey [H7998] . (For they had golden [H2091] earrings [H5141] , because they [were] Ishmaelites [H3459] .)

8:25 And they answered [H559] , We will willingly [H5414] give [H5414] [them]. And they spread [H6566] a garment [H8071] , and did cast [H7993] therein every man [H376] the earrings [H5141] of his prey [H7998] .

8:26 And the weight [H4948] of the golden [H2091] earrings [H5141] that he requested [H7592] was a thousand [H505] and seven [H7651] hundred [H3967] [shekels] of gold [H2091] ; beside ornaments [H7720] , and collars [H5188] , and purple [H713] raiment [H899] that [was] on the kings [H4428] of Midian [H4080] , and beside the chains [H6060] that [were] about their camels' [H1581] necks [H6677] .(collars: or, sweet jewels)

8:27 And Gideon [H1439] made [H6213] an ephod [H646] thereof, and put [H3322] it in his city [H5892] , [even] in Ophrah [H6084] : and all Israel [H3478] went thither a whoring [H2181] after [H310] it: which thing became a snare [H4170] unto Gideon [H1439] , and to his house [H1004] .

8:28 Thus was Midian [H4080] subdued [H3665] before [H6440] the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] , so that they lifted up [H5375] their heads [H7218] no more [H3254] . And the country [H776] was in quietness [H8252] forty [H705] years [H8141] in the days [H3117] of Gideon [H1439] .

8:29 And Jerubbaal [H3378] the son [H1121] of Joash [H3101] went [H3212] and dwelt [H3427] in his own house [H1004] .

8:30 And Gideon [H1439] had threescore and ten [H7657] sons [H1121] of his body [H3409] begotten [H3318] : for he had many [H7227] wives [H802] .(of his: Heb. going out of his thigh)

8:31 And his concubine [H6370] that [was] in Shechem [H7927] , she also bare [H3205] him a son [H1121] , whose name [H8034] he called [H7760] Abimelech [H40] .(called: Heb. set)

8:32 And Gideon [H1439] the son [H1121] of Joash [H3101] died [H4191] in a good [H2896] old age [H7872] , and was buried [H6912] in the sepulchre [H6913] of Joash [H3101] his father [H1] , in Ophrah [H6084] of the Abiezrites [H33] .

8:33 And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon [H1439] was dead [H4191] , that the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] turned again [H7725] , and went a whoring [H2181] after [H310] Baalim [H1168] , and made [H7760] Baalberith [H1170] their god [H430] .

8:34 And the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] remembered [H2142] not the LORD [H3068] their God [H430] , who had delivered [H5337] them out of the hands [H3027] of all their enemies [H341] on every side [H5439] :

8:35 Neither shewed [H6213] they kindness [H2617] to the house [H1004] of Jerubbaal [H3378] , [namely], Gideon [H1439] , according to all the goodness [H2896] which he had shewed [H6213] unto Israel [H3478] .
