    8:1 And the men 376 of Ephraim 669 said 559 8799 unto him, Why hast thou 4100 served 6213 8804 us thus 1697, that thou calledst 7121 8800 us not, when thou wentest 1980 8804 to fight 3898 8736 with the Midianites 4080? And they did chide 7378 8799 with him sharply 2394.(Why…: Heb. What thing is this thou hast done unto us)(sharply: Heb. strongly)

    8:2 And he said 559 8799 unto them, What have I done 6213 8804 now in comparison of you? [Is] not the gleaning 5955 of the grapes of Ephraim 669 better 2896 than the vintage 1210 of Abiezer 44?

    8:3 God 430 hath delivered 5414 8804 into your hands 3027 the princes 8269 of Midian 4080, Oreb 6159 and Zeeb 2062: and what was I able 3201 8804 to do 6213 8800 in comparison of you? Then their anger 7307 was abated 7503 8804 toward him, when he had said 1697 that 1696 8763.(anger: Heb. spirit)

    8:4 And Gideon 1439 came 935 8799 to Jordan 3383, [and] passed over 5674 8802, he, and the three 7969 hundred 3967 men 376 that [were] with him, faint 5889, yet pursuing 7291 8802 [them].

    8:5 And he said 559 8799 unto the men 582 of Succoth 5523, Give 5414 8798, I pray you, loaves 3603 of bread 3899 unto the people 5971 that follow 7272 me; for they [be] faint 5889, and I am pursuing 7291 8802 after 310 Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759, kings 4428 of Midian 4080.

    8:6 And the princes 8269 of Succoth 5523 said 559 8799, [Are] the hands 3709 of Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759 now in thine hand 3027, that we should give 5414 8799 bread 3899 unto thine army 6635?

    8:7 And Gideon 1439 said 559 8799, Therefore when the LORD 3068 hath delivered 5414 8800 Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759 into mine hand 3027, then I will tear 1758 8804 your flesh 1320 with the thorns 6975 of the wilderness 4057 and with briers 1303.(tear: Heb. thresh)

    8:8 And he went up 5927 8799 thence to Penuel 6439, and spake 1696 8762 unto them likewise 2063: and the men 582 of Penuel 6439 answered 6030 8799 him as the men 582 of Succoth 5523 had answered 6030 8804 [him].

    8:9 And he spake 559 8799 also unto the men 582 of Penuel 6439, saying 559 8800, When I come again 7725 8800 in peace 7965, I will break down 5422 8799 this tower 4026.

    8:10 Now Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759 [were] in Karkor 7174, and their hosts 4264 with them, about fifteen 2568 6240 thousand 505 [men], all that were left 3498 8737 of all the hosts 4264 of the children 1121 of the east 6924: for there fell 5307 8802 an hundred 3967 and twenty 6242 thousand 505 men 376 that drew 8025 8802 sword 2719.(men that…: or, every one drawing a sword)

    8:11 And Gideon 1439 went up 5927 8799 by the way 1870 of them that dwelt 7931 8803 in tents 168 on the east 6924 of Nobah 5025 and Jogbehah 3011, and smote 5221 8686 the host 4264: for the host 4264 was secure 983.

    8:12 And when Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759 fled 5127 8799, he pursued 7291 8799 after 310 them, and took 3920 8799 the two 8147 kings 4428 of Midian 4080, Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759, and discomfited 2729 8689 all the host 4264.(discomfited: Heb. terrified)

    8:13 And Gideon 1439 the son 1121 of Joash 3101 returned 7725 8799 from battle 4421 before 4608 the sun 2775 [was up],

    8:14 And caught 3920 8799 a young man 5288 of the men 582 of Succoth 5523, and enquired 7592 8799 of him: and he described 3789 8799 unto him the princes 8269 of Succoth 5523, and the elders 2205 thereof, [even] threescore and seventeen 7657 7651 men 376.(described: Heb. writ)

    8:15 And he came 935 8799 unto the men 582 of Succoth 5523, and said 559 8799, Behold Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759, with whom ye did upbraid 2778 8765 me, saying 559 8800, [Are] the hands 3709 of Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759 now in thine hand 3027, that we should give 5414 8799 bread 3899 unto thy men 582 [that are] weary 3287?

    8:16 And he took 3947 8799 the elders 2205 of the city 5892, and thorns 6975 of the wilderness 4057 and briers 1303, and with them he taught 3045 8686 the men 582 of Succoth 5523.(taught: Heb. made to know)

    8:17 And he beat down 5422 8804 the tower 4026 of Penuel 6439, and slew 2026 8799 the men 582 of the city 5892.

    8:18 Then said 559 8799 he unto Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759, What 375 manner of men 582 [were they] whom ye slew 2026 8804 at Tabor 8396? And they answered 559 8799, As thou 3644 [art], so [were] they; each one 259 resembled 8389 the children 1121 of a king 4428.(resembled…: Heb. according to the form, etc)

    8:19 And he said 559 8799, They [were] my brethren 251, [even] the sons 1121 of my mother 517: [as] the LORD 3068 liveth 2416, if 3863 ye had saved them alive 2421 8689, I would not slay 2026 8804 you.

    8:20 And he said 559 8799 unto Jether 3500 his firstborn 1060, Up 6965 8798, [and] slay 2026 8798 them. But the youth 5288 drew 8025 8804 not his sword 2719: for he feared 3372 8804, because he [was] yet a youth 5288.

    8:21 Then Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759 said 559 8799, Rise 6965 8798 thou, and fall 6293 8798 upon us: for as the man 376 [is, so is] his strength 1369. And Gideon 1439 arose 6965 8799, and slew 2026 8799 Zebah 2078 and Zalmunna 6759, and took away 3947 8799 the ornaments 7720 that [were] on their camels' 1581 necks 6677.(ornaments: or, ornaments like the moon)

    8:22 Then the men 376 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799 unto Gideon 1439, Rule 4910 8798 thou over us, both thou, and thy son 1121, and thy son's 1121 son 1121 also: for thou hast delivered 3467 8689 us from the hand 3027 of Midian 4080.

    8:23 And Gideon 1439 said 559 8799 unto them, I will not rule 4910 8799 over you, neither shall my son 1121 rule 4910 8799 over you: the LORD 3068 shall rule 4910 8799 over you.

    8:24 And Gideon 1439 said 559 8799 unto them, I would desire 7592 8799 a request 7596 of you, that ye would give 5414 8798 me every man 376 the earrings 5141 of his prey 7998. (For they had golden 2091 earrings 5141, because they [were] Ishmaelites 3459.)

    8:25 And they answered 559 8799, We will willingly 5414 8800 give 5414 8799 [them]. And they spread 6566 8799 a garment 8071, and did cast 7993 8686 therein every man 376 the earrings 5141 of his prey 7998.

    8:26 And the weight 4948 of the golden 2091 earrings 5141 that he requested 7592 8804 was a thousand 505 and seven 7651 hundred 3967 [shekels] of gold 2091; beside ornaments 7720, and collars 5188, and purple 713 raiment 899 that [was] on the kings 4428 of Midian 4080, and beside the chains 6060 that [were] about their camels' 1581 necks 6677.(collars: or, sweet jewels)

    8:27 And Gideon 1439 made 6213 8799 an ephod 646 thereof, and put 3322 8686 it in his city 5892, [even] in Ophrah 6084: and all Israel 3478 went thither a whoring 2181 8799 after 310 it: which thing became a snare 4170 unto Gideon 1439, and to his house 1004.

    8:28 Thus was Midian 4080 subdued 3665 8735 before 6440 the children 1121 of Israel 3478, so that they lifted up 5375 8800 their heads 7218 no more 3254 8804. And the country 776 was in quietness 8252 8799 forty 705 years 8141 in the days 3117 of Gideon 1439.

    8:29 And Jerubbaal 3378 the son 1121 of Joash 3101 went 3212 8799 and dwelt 3427 8799 in his own house 1004.

    8:30 And Gideon 1439 had threescore and ten 7657 sons 1121 of his body 3409 begotten 3318 8802: for he had many 7227 wives 802.(of his…: Heb. going out of his thigh)

    8:31 And his concubine 6370 that [was] in Shechem 7927, she also bare 3205 8804 him a son 1121, whose name 8034 he called 7760 8799 Abimelech 40.(called: Heb. set)

    8:32 And Gideon 1439 the son 1121 of Joash 3101 died 4191 8799 in a good 2896 old age 7872, and was buried 6912 8735 in the sepulchre 6913 of Joash 3101 his father 1, in Ophrah 6084 of the Abiezrites 33.

    8:33 And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon 1439 was dead 4191 8804, that the children 1121 of Israel 3478 turned again 7725 8799, and went a whoring 2181 8799 after 310 Baalim 1168, and made 7760 8799 Baalberith 1170 their god 430.

    8:34 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 remembered 2142 8804 not the LORD 3068 their God 430, who had delivered 5337 8688 them out of the hands 3027 of all their enemies 341 8802 on every side 5439:

    8:35 Neither shewed 6213 8804 they kindness 2617 to the house 1004 of Jerubbaal 3378, [namely], Gideon 1439, according to all the goodness 2896 which he had shewed 6213 8804 unto Israel 3478.
