SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:32 Y aquel día le llamó Jerobaal; porque dijo: Pleitee Baal contra el que derribó su altar.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 6:32 Verse 32. He called him Jerubbaal] That is, Let Baal contend; changed, 2 Sam. xi. 21, into Jerubbesheth, he shall contend against confusion or shame; thus changing baal, lord, into bosheth, confusion or ignominy. Some think that Jerubbaal was the same with Jerombalus, who, according to Sanchoniatho and Porphyry, was a priest of Jevo. But the history of Sanchoniatho is probably a forgery of Porphyry himself, and worthy of no credit.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 32. Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal , etc.] That is, Joash called his son Gideon by that name; who, some think, is the same with Jerombalus, the priest of the god Jevo, or Jehovah; from whom Sanchoniatho, an ancient Phoenician writer, as Philo Byblius says f140 , received the principal things in his history respecting the Jews: saying, let Baal plead against him, because he hath thrown down his altar ; giving this as the reason of the name of Jerubbaal he called him by, which signifies, “let Baal plead”; let Baal plead his own cause, and avenge himself on Gideon for what he has done to him, and put him to death if he can.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 25-32 - See the power of God's grace, that he could raise up a reformer; an the kindness of his grace, that he would raise up a deliverer, out of the family of a leader in idolatry. Gideon must not think it enough no to worship at that altar; he must throw it down, and offer sacrifice of another. It was needful he should make peace with God, before he mad war on Midian. Till sin be pardoned through the great Sacrifice, n good is to be expected. God, who has all hearts in his hands influenced Joash to appear for his son against the advocates for Baal though he had joined formerly in the worship of Baal. Let us do ou duty, and trust God with our safety. Here is a challenge to Baal, to d either good or evil; the result convinced his worshippers of their folly, in praying to one to help them that could not avenge himself.
