Judges 7:1-8

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>_.
