Judges 8:15

Context
NETBible

He approached the men of Succoth and said, “Look what I have! 1  Zebah and Zalmunna! You insulted me, saying, ‘You have not yet overpowered Zebah and Zalmunna. So why should we give bread to your exhausted men?’” 2 

XREF

Jud 8:6,7

NET © Notes

tn Heb “Look!” The words “what I have” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

tn Heb “Are the palms of Zebah and Zalmunna now in your hand, that we should give to your exhausted men bread?”

sn Gideon changes their actual statement (see v. 6) by saying exhausted men rather than “army.” In this way he emphasizes the crisis his men were facing and highlights the insensitivity of the men of Succoth.
