Judges 7

Then Jerubbaal
<03378>_,
who [is] Gideon
<01439>_,
and all the people
<05971>
that [were] with him, rose up early
<07925> (8686)_,
and pitched
<02583> (8799)
beside the well of Harod
<05878>_:
so that the host
<04264>
of the Midianites
<04080>
were on the north side
<06828>
of them, by the hill
<01389>
of Moreh
<04176>_,
in the valley
<06010>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Gideon
<01439>_,
The people
<05971>
that [are] with thee [are] too many
<07227>
for me to give
<05414> (8800)
the Midianites
<04080>
into their hands
<03027>_,
lest Israel
<03478>
vaunt
<06286> (8691)
themselves against me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Mine own hand
<03027>
hath saved
<03467> (8689)
me.
Now therefore go to
<04994>_,
proclaim
<07121> (8798)
in the ears
<0241>
of the people
<05971>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Whosoever [is] fearful
<03373>
and afraid
<02730>_,
let him return
<07725> (8799)
and depart early
<06852> (8799)
from mount
<02022>
Gilead
<01568>_.
And there returned
<07725> (8799)
of the people
<05971>
twenty
<06242>
and two
<08147>
thousand
<0505>_;
and there remained
<07604> (8738)
ten
<06235>
thousand
<0505>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Gideon
<01439>_,
The people
<05971>
[are] yet [too] many
<07227>_;
bring them down
<03381> (8685)
unto the water
<04325>_,
and I will try
<06884> (8799)
them for thee there: and it shall be, [that] of whom I say
<0559> (8799)
unto thee, This shall go
<03212> (8799)
with thee, the same shall go
<03212> (8799)
with thee; and of whomsoever I say
<0559> (8799)
unto thee, This shall not go
<03212> (8799)
with thee, the same shall not go
<03212> (8799)_.
So he brought down
<03381> (8686)
the people
<05971>
unto the water
<04325>_:
and the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Gideon
<01439>_,
Every one that lappeth
<03952> (8799)
of the water
<04325>
with his tongue
<03956>_,
as a dog
<03611>
lappeth
<03952> (8799)_,
him shalt thou set
<03322> (8686)
by himself; likewise every one that boweth down
<03766> (8799)
upon his knees
<01290>
to drink
<08354> (8800)_.
And the number
<04557>
of them that lapped
<03952> (8764)_,
[putting] their hand
<03027>
to their mouth
<06310>_,
were three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>_:
but all the rest
<03499>
of the people
<05971>
bowed down
<03766> (8804)
upon their knees
<01290>
to drink
<08354> (8800)
water
<04325>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Gideon
<01439>_,
By the three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
that lapped
<03952> (8764)
will I save
<03467> (8686)
you, and deliver
<05414> (8804)
the Midianites
<04080>
into thine hand
<03027>_:
and let all the [other] people
<05971>
go
<03212> (8799)
every man
<0376>
unto his place
<04725>_.
So the people
<05971>
took
<03947> (8799)
victuals
<06720>
in their hand
<03027>_,
and their trumpets
<07782>_:
and he sent
<07971> (8765)
all
<0376>
[the rest of] Israel
<03478>
every man
<0376>
unto his tent
<0168>_,
and retained
<02388> (8689)
those three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>_:
and the host
<04264>
of Midian
<04080>
was beneath him in the valley
<06010>_.
And it came to pass the same night
<03915>_,
that the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
get thee down
<03381> (8798)
unto the host
<04264>_;
for I have delivered
<05414> (8804)
it into thine hand
<03027>_.
But if thou fear
<03373>
to go down
<03381> (8800)_,
go
<03381> (0)
thou with Phurah
<06513>
thy servant
<05288>
down
<03381> (8798)
to the host
<04264>_:
And thou shalt hear
<08085> (8804)
what they say
<01696> (8762)_;
and afterward
<0310>
shall thine hands
<03027>
be strengthened
<02388> (8799)
to go down
<03381> (8804)
unto the host
<04264>_.
Then went he down
<03381> (8799)
with Phurah
<06513>
his servant
<05288>
unto the outside
<07097>
of the armed men
<02571>
that [were] in the host
<04264>_.
{armed men: or, ranks by five}
And the Midianites
<04080>
and the Amalekites
<06002>
and all the children
<01121>
of the east
<06924>
lay
<05307> (8802)
along in the valley
<06010>
like grasshoppers
<0697>
for multitude
<07230>_;
and their camels
<01581>
[were] without number
<04557>_,
as the sand
<02344>
by the sea
<03220>
side
<08193>
for multitude
<07230>_.
And when Gideon
<01439>
was come
<0935> (8799)_,
behold, [there was] a man
<0376>
that told
<05608> (8764)
a dream
<02472>
unto his fellow
<07453>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, I dreamed
<02492> (8804)
a dream
<02472>_,
and, lo, a cake
<06742> (8675) <06742>
of barley
<08184>
bread
<03899>
tumbled
<02015> (8693)
into the host
<04264>
of Midian
<04080>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
unto a tent
<0168>_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
it that it fell
<05307> (8799)_,
and overturned
<02015> (8799) <04605>
it, that the tent
<0168>
lay along
<05307> (8804)_.
And his fellow
<07453>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
This [is] nothing else save the sword
<02719>
of Gideon
<01439>
the son
<01121>
of Joash
<03101>_,
a man
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>_:
[for] into his hand
<03027>
hath God
<0430>
delivered
<05414> (8804)
Midian
<04080>_,
and all the host
<04264>_.
And it was [so], when Gideon
<01439>
heard
<08085> (8800)
the telling
<04557>
of the dream
<02472>_,
and the interpretation
<07667>
thereof, that he worshipped
<07812> (8691)_,
and returned
<07725> (8799)
into the host
<04264>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Arise
<06965> (8798)_;
for the LORD
<03068>
hath delivered
<05414> (8804)
into your hand
<03027>
the host
<04264>
of Midian
<04080>_.
{interpretation: Heb. breaking}
And he divided
<02673> (8799)
the three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
[into] three
<07969>
companies
<07218>_,
and he put
<05414> (8799)
a trumpet
<07782>
in every man's hand
<03027>_,
with empty
<07386>
pitchers
<03537>_,
and lamps
<03940>
within
<08432>
the pitchers
<03537>_.
{a trumpet...: Heb. trumpets in the hand of all of them} {lamps: or, firebrands, or, torches}
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Look
<07200> (8799)
on me, and do
<06213> (8799)
likewise: and, behold, when I come
<0935> (8802)
to the outside
<07097>
of the camp
<04264>_,
it shall be [that], as I do
<06213> (8799)_,
so shall ye do
<06213> (8799)_.
When I blow
<08628> (8804)
with a trumpet
<07782>_,
I and all that [are] with me, then blow
<08628> (8804)
ye the trumpets
<07782>
also on every side
<05439>
of all the camp
<04264>_,
and say
<0559> (8804)_,
[The sword] of the LORD
<03068>_,
and of Gideon
<01439>_.
So Gideon
<01439>_,
and the hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
that [were] with him, came
<0935> (8799)
unto the outside
<07097>
of the camp
<04264>
in the beginning
<07218>
of the middle
<08484>
watch
<0821>_;
and they had but
<0389>
newly
<06965> (8687)
set
<06965> (8689)
the watch
<08104> (8802)_:
and they blew
<08628> (8799)
the trumpets
<07782>_,
and brake
<05310> (8800)
the pitchers
<03537>
that [were] in their hands
<03027>_.
And the three
<07969>
companies
<07218>
blew
<08628> (8799)
the trumpets
<07782>_,
and brake
<07665> (8799)
the pitchers
<03537>_,
and held
<02388> (8686)
the lamps
<03940>
in their left
<08040>
hands
<03027>_,
and the trumpets
<07782>
in their right
<03225>
hands
<03027>
to blow
<08628> (8800)
[withal]: and they cried
<07121> (8799)_,
The sword
<02719>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and of Gideon
<01439>_.
And they stood
<05975> (8799)
every man
<0376>
in his place round about
<05439>
the camp
<04264>_:
and all the host
<04264>
ran
<07323> (8799)_,
and cried
<07321> (8686)_,
and fled
<05127> (8799) (8675) <05127> (8686)_.
And the three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
blew
<08628> (8799)
the trumpets
<07782>_,
and the LORD
<03068>
set
<07760> (8799)
every man's
<0376>
sword
<02719>
against his fellow
<07453>_,
even throughout all the host
<04264>_:
and the host
<04264>
fled
<05127> (8799)
to Bethshittah
<01029>
in Zererath
<06888>_,
[and] to the border
<08193>
of Abelmeholah
<065>_,
unto Tabbath
<02888>_.
{in: or, toward} {border: Heb. lip}
And the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
gathered themselves together
<06817> (8735)
out of Naphtali
<05321>_,
and out of Asher
<0836>_,
and out of all Manasseh
<04519>_,
and pursued
<07291> (8799)
after
<0310>
the Midianites
<04080>_.
And Gideon
<01439>
sent
<07971> (8804)
messengers
<04397>
throughout all mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Come down
<03381> (8798)
against
<07125> (8800)
the Midianites
<04080>_,
and take
<03920> (8798)
before them the waters
<04325>
unto Bethbarah
<01012>
and Jordan
<03383>_.
Then all the men
<0376>
of Ephraim
<0669>
gathered themselves together
<06817> (8735)_,
and took
<03920> (8799)
the waters
<04325>
unto Bethbarah
<01012>
and Jordan
<03383>_.
And they took
<03920> (8799)
two
<08147>
princes
<08269>
of the Midianites
<04080>_,
Oreb
<06159>
and Zeeb
<02062>_;
and they slew
<02026> (8799)
Oreb
<06159>
upon the rock
<06697>
Oreb
<06159>_,
and Zeeb
<02062>
they slew
<02026> (8804)
at the winepress
<03342>
of Zeeb
<02062>_,
and pursued
<07291> (8799)
Midian
<04080>_,
and brought
<0935> (8689)
the heads
<07218>
of Oreb
<06159>
and Zeeb
<02062>
to Gideon
<01439>
on the other side
<05676>
Jordan
<03383>_.
