SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:8 Y de allí subió a Peniel, y les habló las mismas palabras. Y los de Peniel le respondieron como habían respondido los de Sucot.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 8. And he went up thence to Penuel , etc.] A place not far from Succoth, and to which also Jacob gave name, from the Lord’s appearing to him there face to face, ( Genesis 32:30) but here was nothing of God in this place now: and spoke unto them likewise ; desired bread for his men, as he had of the inhabitants of Succoth: and the men of Penuel answered him as the men of Succoth had answered him ; denied him his request in the same jeering manner.
Ver. 9 And he spoke also unto the men of Penuel , etc.] In a threatening way, as he had spoken to the men of Succoth: saying, when I come again in peace: having conquered all his enemies, and delivered Israel from their bondage, and restored peace and prosperity to them, of which he had no doubt: I will break down this tower ; pointing to it and which stood in their city, and in which they placed their confidence; and when he threatened them, boasted of it as their security.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 4-12 - Gideon's men were faint, yet pursuing; fatigued with what they ha done, yet eager to do more against their enemies. It is many a time the true Christian's case, fainting, and yet pursuing. The world knows but little of the persevering and successful struggle the real believe maintains with his sinful heart. But he betakes himself to that Divin strength, in the faith of which he began his conflict, and by the supply of which alone he can finish it in triumph.
