Judges 8:24-25

8:24 Gideon continued, 1  “I would like to make one request. Each of you give me an earring from the plunder you have taken.” 2  (The Midianites 3  had gold earrings because they were Ishmaelites.) 8:25 They said, “We are happy to give you earrings.” 4  So they 5  spread out a garment, and each one threw an earring from his plunder onto it.

1 tn Heb “said to them.”

2 tn Heb “Give to me, each one, an earring from his plunder.”

3 tn Heb “they”; the referent (the Midianites) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “We will indeed give.”

5 tc In the LXX the subject of this verb is singular, referring to Gideon rather than to the Israelites.
