Judges 6:14

Context
6:14 Then the Lord himself 1  turned to him and said, “You have the strength. 2  Deliver Israel from the power of the Midianites! 3  Have I not sent you?”

Judges 6:32

Context
6:32 That very day Gideon’s father named him Jerub-Baal, 4  because he had said, “Let Baal fight with him, for it was his altar that was pulled down.”

1 sn Some interpreters equate the Lord and the messenger in this story, but they are more likely distinct. In vv. 22-23 the Lord and Gideon continue to carry on a conversation after the messenger has vanished (v. 21).

2 tn Heb “Go in this strength of yours.”

3 tn Heb “the hand of Midian.”

4 tn Heb “He called him on that day Jerub-Baal.” The name means, at least by popular etymology, “Let Baal fight!”
