Judges 6:25

Context
Gideon Destroys the Altar

6:25 That night the Lord said to him, “Take the bull from your father’s herd, as well as a second bull, one that is seven years old. 1  Pull down your father’s Baal altar and cut down the nearby Asherah pole.

Judges 6:28

Context

6:28 When the men of the city got up the next morning, they saw 2  the Baal altar pulled down, the nearby Asherah pole cut down, and the second bull sacrificed on the newly built altar.

Judges 6:30

Context
6:30 The men of the city said to Joash, “Bring out your son, so we can execute him! 3  He pulled down the Baal altar and cut down the nearby Asherah pole.”

1 tn Or “Take a bull from your father’s herd, the second one, the one seven years old.” Apparently Gideon would need the bulls to pull down the altar.

2 tn Heb “look!” The narrator uses this word to invite his audience/readers to view the scene through the eyes of the men.

3 tn Heb “and let him die.” The jussive form with vav after the imperative is best translated as a purpose clause.
