Judges 8

And the men
<0376>
of Ephraim
<0669>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Why hast thou
<04100>
served
<06213> (8804)
us thus
<01697>_,
that thou calledst
<07121> (8800)
us not, when thou wentest
<01980> (8804)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
with the Midianites
<04080>_?
And they did chide
<07378> (8799)
with him sharply
<02394>_.
{Why...: Heb. What thing is this thou hast done unto us} {sharply: Heb. strongly}
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, What have I done
<06213> (8804)
now in comparison of you? [Is] not the gleaning
<05955>
of the grapes of Ephraim
<0669>
better
<02896>
than the vintage
<01210>
of Abiezer
<044>_?
God
<0430>
hath delivered
<05414> (8804)
into your hands
<03027>
the princes
<08269>
of Midian
<04080>_,
Oreb
<06159>
and Zeeb
<02062>_:
and what was I able
<03201> (8804)
to do
<06213> (8800)
in comparison of you? Then their anger
<07307>
was abated
<07503> (8804)
toward him, when he had said
<01697>
that
<01696> (8763)_.
{anger: Heb. spirit}
And Gideon
<01439>
came
<0935> (8799)
to Jordan
<03383>_,
[and] passed over
<05674> (8802)_,
he, and the three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
that [were] with him, faint
<05889>_,
yet pursuing
<07291> (8802)
[them].
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto the men
<0582>
of Succoth
<05523>_,
Give
<05414> (8798)_,
I pray you, loaves
<03603>
of bread
<03899>
unto the people
<05971>
that follow
<07272>
me; for they [be] faint
<05889>_,
and I am pursuing
<07291> (8802)
after
<0310>
Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>_,
kings
<04428>
of Midian
<04080>_.
And the princes
<08269>
of Succoth
<05523>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Are] the hands
<03709>
of Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>
now in thine hand
<03027>_,
that we should give
<05414> (8799)
bread
<03899>
unto thine army
<06635>_?
And Gideon
<01439>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Therefore when the LORD
<03068>
hath delivered
<05414> (8800)
Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>
into mine hand
<03027>_,
then I will tear
<01758> (8804)
your flesh
<01320>
with the thorns
<06975>
of the wilderness
<04057>
and with briers
<01303>_.
{tear: Heb. thresh}
And he went up
<05927> (8799)
thence to Penuel
<06439>_,
and spake
<01696> (8762)
unto them likewise
<02063>_:
and the men
<0582>
of Penuel
<06439>
answered
<06030> (8799)
him as the men
<0582>
of Succoth
<05523>
had answered
<06030> (8804)
[him].
And he spake
<0559> (8799)
also unto the men
<0582>
of Penuel
<06439>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
When I come again
<07725> (8800)
in peace
<07965>_,
I will break down
<05422> (8799)
this tower
<04026>_.
Now Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>
[were] in Karkor
<07174>_,
and their hosts
<04264>
with them, about fifteen
<02568> <06240>
thousand
<0505>
[men], all that were left
<03498> (8737)
of all the hosts
<04264>
of the children
<01121>
of the east
<06924>_:
for there fell
<05307> (8802)
an hundred
<03967>
and twenty
<06242>
thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>
that drew
<08025> (8802)
sword
<02719>_.
{men that...: or, every one drawing a sword}
And Gideon
<01439>
went up
<05927> (8799)
by the way
<01870>
of them that dwelt
<07931> (8803)
in tents
<0168>
on the east
<06924>
of Nobah
<05025>
and Jogbehah
<03011>_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
the host
<04264>_:
for the host
<04264>
was secure
<0983>_.
And when Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>
fled
<05127> (8799)_,
he pursued
<07291> (8799)
after
<0310>
them, and took
<03920> (8799)
the two
<08147>
kings
<04428>
of Midian
<04080>_,
Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>_,
and discomfited
<02729> (8689)
all the host
<04264>_.
{discomfited: Heb. terrified}
And Gideon
<01439>
the son
<01121>
of Joash
<03101>
returned
<07725> (8799)
from battle
<04421>
before
<04608>
the sun
<02775>
[was up],
And caught
<03920> (8799)
a young man
<05288>
of the men
<0582>
of Succoth
<05523>_,
and enquired
<07592> (8799)
of him: and he described
<03789> (8799)
unto him the princes
<08269>
of Succoth
<05523>_,
and the elders
<02205>
thereof, [even] threescore and seventeen
<07657> <07651>
men
<0376>_.
{described: Heb. writ}
And he came
<0935> (8799)
unto the men
<0582>
of Succoth
<05523>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>_,
with whom ye did upbraid
<02778> (8765)
me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
[Are] the hands
<03709>
of Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>
now in thine hand
<03027>_,
that we should give
<05414> (8799)
bread
<03899>
unto thy men
<0582>
[that are] weary
<03287>_?
And he took
<03947> (8799)
the elders
<02205>
of the city
<05892>_,
and thorns
<06975>
of the wilderness
<04057>
and briers
<01303>_,
and with them he taught
<03045> (8686)
the men
<0582>
of Succoth
<05523>_.
{taught: Heb. made to know}
And he beat down
<05422> (8804)
the tower
<04026>
of Penuel
<06439>_,
and slew
<02026> (8799)
the men
<0582>
of the city
<05892>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
he unto Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>_,
What
<0375>
manner of men
<0582>
[were they] whom ye slew
<02026> (8804)
at Tabor
<08396>_?
And they answered
<0559> (8799)_,
As thou
<03644>
[art], so [were] they; each one
<0259>
resembled
<08389>
the children
<01121>
of a king
<04428>_.
{resembled...: Heb. according to the form, etc}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
They [were] my brethren
<0251>_,
[even] the sons
<01121>
of my mother
<0517>_:
[as] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
if
<03863>
ye had saved them alive
<02421> (8689)_,
I would not slay
<02026> (8804)
you.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jether
<03500>
his firstborn
<01060>_,
Up
<06965> (8798)_,
[and] slay
<02026> (8798)
them. But the youth
<05288>
drew
<08025> (8804)
not his sword
<02719>_:
for he feared
<03372> (8804)_,
because he [was] yet a youth
<05288>_.
Then Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Rise
<06965> (8798)
thou, and fall
<06293> (8798)
upon us: for as the man
<0376>
[is, so is] his strength
<01369>_.
And Gideon
<01439>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and slew
<02026> (8799)
Zebah
<02078>
and Zalmunna
<06759>_,
and took away
<03947> (8799)
the ornaments
<07720>
that [were] on their camels
<01581>_'
necks
<06677>_.
{ornaments: or, ornaments like the moon}
Then the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Gideon
<01439>_,
Rule
<04910> (8798)
thou over us, both thou, and thy son
<01121>_,
and thy son's
<01121>
son
<01121>
also: for thou hast delivered
<03467> (8689)
us from the hand
<03027>
of Midian
<04080>_.
And Gideon
<01439>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, I will not rule
<04910> (8799)
over you, neither shall my son
<01121>
rule
<04910> (8799)
over you: the LORD
<03068>
shall rule
<04910> (8799)
over you.
And Gideon
<01439>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, I would desire
<07592> (8799)
a request
<07596>
of you, that ye would give
<05414> (8798)
me every man
<0376>
the earrings
<05141>
of his prey
<07998>_.
(For they had golden
<02091>
earrings
<05141>_,
because they [were] Ishmaelites
<03459>.)
And they answered
<0559> (8799)_,
We will willingly
<05414> (8800)
give
<05414> (8799)
[them]. And they spread
<06566> (8799)
a garment
<08071>_,
and did cast
<07993> (8686)
therein every man
<0376>
the earrings
<05141>
of his prey
<07998>_.
And the weight
<04948>
of the golden
<02091>
earrings
<05141>
that he requested
<07592> (8804)
was a thousand
<0505>
and seven
<07651>
hundred
<03967>
[shekels] of gold
<02091>_;
beside ornaments
<07720>_,
and collars
<05188>_,
and purple
<0713>
raiment
<0899>
that [was] on the kings
<04428>
of Midian
<04080>_,
and beside the chains
<06060>
that [were] about their camels
<01581>_'
necks
<06677>_.
{collars: or, sweet jewels}
And Gideon
<01439>
made
<06213> (8799)
an ephod
<0646>
thereof, and put
<03322> (8686)
it in his city
<05892>_,
[even] in Ophrah
<06084>_:
and all Israel
<03478>
went thither a whoring
<02181> (8799)
after
<0310>
it: which thing became a snare
<04170>
unto Gideon
<01439>_,
and to his house
<01004>_.
Thus was Midian
<04080>
subdued
<03665> (8735)
before
<06440>
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
so that they lifted up
<05375> (8800)
their heads
<07218>
no more
<03254> (8804)_.
And the country
<0776>
was in quietness
<08252> (8799)
forty
<0705>
years
<08141>
in the days
<03117>
of Gideon
<01439>_.
And Jerubbaal
<03378>
the son
<01121>
of Joash
<03101>
went
<03212> (8799)
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in his own house
<01004>_.
And Gideon
<01439>
had threescore and ten
<07657>
sons
<01121>
of his body
<03409>
begotten
<03318> (8802)_:
for he had many
<07227>
wives
<0802>_.
{of his...: Heb. going out of his thigh}
And his concubine
<06370>
that [was] in Shechem
<07927>_,
she also bare
<03205> (8804)
him a son
<01121>_,
whose name
<08034>
he called
<07760> (8799)
Abimelech
<040>_.
{called: Heb. set}
And Gideon
<01439>
the son
<01121>
of Joash
<03101>
died
<04191> (8799)
in a good
<02896>
old age
<07872>_,
and was buried
<06912> (8735)
in the sepulchre
<06913>
of Joash
<03101>
his father
<01>_,
in Ophrah
<06084>
of the Abiezrites
<033>_.
And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon
<01439>
was dead
<04191> (8804)_,
that the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
turned again
<07725> (8799)_,
and went a whoring
<02181> (8799)
after
<0310>
Baalim
<01168>_,
and made
<07760> (8799)
Baalberith
<01170>
their god
<0430>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
remembered
<02142> (8804)
not the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_,
who had delivered
<05337> (8688)
them out of the hands
<03027>
of all their enemies
<0341> (8802)
on every side
<05439>_:
Neither shewed
<06213> (8804)
they kindness
<02617>
to the house
<01004>
of Jerubbaal
<03378>_,
[namely], Gideon
<01439>_,
according to all the goodness
<02896>
which he had shewed
<06213> (8804)
unto Israel
<03478>_.
