SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:13 Y Gedeón le respondió: Ah, Señor mío, si el SEÑOR es con nosotros, Â¿por qué nos ha sobrevenido todo esto? Â¿Y dónde están todas sus maravillas, que nuestros padres nos han contado, diciendo: Â¿No nos sacó el SEÑOR de Egipto? Y ahora el SEÑOR nos ha desamparado, y nos ha entregado en manos de los madianitas.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 6:13 Verse 13. And Gideon said unto him] This speech is remarkable for its energy and simplicity; it shows indeed a measure of despondency, but not more than the circumstances of the case justified.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. And Gideon said to him, oh my Lord , etc.] Taking him not to be an angel, but some illustrious and eminent person: if the Lord be with us, why then is all this befallen us ? all these troubles and calamities through the oppression of the Midianites; for he understood what was said to him in the salutation, respecting not himself personally and privately, but the people of Israel; and he could not tell how to reconcile the Lord’s being with them, and yet suffering such sad things to befall them they groaned under: where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt ? when God was with his people, and brought them out of Egypt, he wrought miracles for them, whereby they were delivered out of their bondage; of this their fathers had assured them, but nothing of this kind was wrought for them now, and therefore there was no appearance of the Lord being with them, but all the contrary, as follows: but now the Lord has forsaken us, and delivered us into the hand of the Midianites ; and there was good reason for it, because they had forsaken the Lord, and worshipped the gods of the Amorites.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 11-24 - Gideon was a man of a brave, active spirit, yet in obscurity throug the times: he is here stirred up to undertake something great. It wa very sure that the Lord was with him, when his Angel was with him Gideon was weak in faith, which made it hard to reconcile the assurances of the presence of God with the distress to which Israel wa brought. The Angel answered his objections. He told him to appear an act as Israel's deliverer, there needed no more. Bishop Hall says While God calls Gideon valiant, he makes him so. God delights to advance the humble. Gideon desires to have his faith confirmed. Now under the influences of the Spirit, we are not to expect signs befor our eyes such as Gideon here desired, but must earnestly pray to God that if we have found grace in his sight, he would show us a sign in our heart, by the powerful working of his Spirit there, The Ange turned the meat into an offering made by fire; showing that he was no a man who needed meat, but the Son of God, who was to be served an honoured by sacrifice, and who in the fulness of time was to make himself a sacrifice. Hereby a sign was given to Gideon, that he ha found grace in God's sight. Ever since man has by sin exposed himsel to God's wrath and curse, a message from heaven has been a terror to him, as he scarcely dares to expect good tidings thence. In this world it is very awful to have any converse with that world of spirits to which we are so much strangers. Gideon's courage failed him. But God spoke peace to him.
