Judges 6:1-3

Context
Oppression and Confrontation

6:1 The Israelites did evil in the Lord’s sight, 1  so the Lord turned them over to 2  Midian for seven years. 6:2 The Midianites 3  overwhelmed Israel. 4  Because of Midian the Israelites made shelters 5  for themselves in the hills, as well as caves and strongholds. 6:3 Whenever the Israelites planted their crops, 6  the Midianites, Amalekites, and the people from the east would attack them. 7 

1 tn Heb “in the eyes of.”

2 tn Heb “gave them into the hand of.”

3 tn Heb “the hand of Midian.”

4 tn Heb “The hand of Midian was strong against Israel.”

6 tn Heb “Whenever Israel sowed seed.”

7 tn Heb “Midian, Amalek, and the sons of the east would go up, they would go up against him.” The translation assumes that וְעָלוּ (vÿalu) is dittographic (note the following עָלָיו, ’alayv).
