Judges 6:22-24

Context

6:22 When Gideon realized 1  that it was the Lord’s messenger, he 2  said, “Oh no! 3  Master, Lord! 4  I have seen the Lord’s messenger face to face!” 6:23 The Lord said to him, “You are safe! 5  Do not be afraid! You are not going to die!” 6:24 Gideon built an altar for the Lord there, and named it “The Lord is on friendly terms with me.” 6  To this day it is still there in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

1 tn Heb “saw.”

2 tn Heb “Gideon.” The proper name has been replaced by the pronoun (“he”) in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Or “Ah!”

4 tn The Hebrew text reads אֲדֹנַי יְהוִה (’adonay yÿhvih, “Lord [the same title used in v. 15], Lord”).

5 tn Heb “Peace to you.” For a similar use of this idiom to introduce a reassuring word, see Gen 43:23.

6 tn Heb “The Lord is peace.” Gideon’s name for the altar plays on the Lord’s reassuring words to him, “Peace to you.”
