Judges 8:8-9

8:8 He went up from there to Penuel and made the same request. 1  The men of Penuel responded the same way the men of Succoth had. 2  8:9 He also threatened 3  the men of Penuel, warning, 4  “When I return victoriously, 5  I will tear down this tower.”

1 tn Heb “and spoke to them in the same way.”

2 tn Heb “The men of Penuel answered him just as the men of Succoth answered.”
