1 And the men of Ephraim said to Gedeon, What [is] this [that] thou hast done to us, in that thou didst not call us when thou wentest to fight with Madiam? and they chode with him sharply. 2 And he said to them, What have I now done in comparison of you? [is] not the gleaning of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer? 3 The Lord has delivered into your hand the princes of Madiam, Oreb and Zeb; and what could I do in comparison of you? Then was their spirit calmed toward him, when he spoke this word. 4 And Gedeon came to Jordan, and went over, himself and the three hundred with him, hungry, yet pursuing. 5 And he said to the men of Socchoth, Give, I pray you, bread to feed this people that follow me; because they are faint, and behold, I am following after Zebee and Salmana, kings of Madiam. 6 And the princes of Socchoth said, [Are] the hands of Zebee and Salmana now in thy hand, that we should give bread to thy host? 7 And Gedeon said, Therefore when the Lord gives Zebee and Salmana into my hand, then will I tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness, and the Barkenim. 8 And he went up thence to Phanuel, and spoke to them likewise: and the men of Phanuel answered him as the men of Socchoth [had] answered him. 9 And Gedeon said to the men of Phanuel, When I return in peace, I will break down this tower. 10 And Zebee and Salmana [were] in Carcar, and their host [was] with them, about fifteen thousand, all that were left of all the host of the aliens; and they that fell [were] a hundred and twenty thousand men that drew the sword. 11 And Gedeon went up by the way of them that dwelt in tents, eastward of Nabai and Jegebal; and he smote the host, and the host was secure. 12 And Zebee and Salmana fled; and he pursued after them, and took the two kings of Madiam, Zebee and Salmana, and discomfited all the army. 13 And Gedeon the son of Joas returned from the battle, down from the battle of Ares. 14 And he took prisoner a young lad of the men of Socchoth, and questioned him; and he wrote to him the names of the princes of Socchoth and of their elders, seventy-seven men. 15 And Gedeon came to the princes of Socchoth, and said, Behold Zebee and Salmana, about whom ye reproached me, saying, [Are] the hands of Zebee and Salmana now in thy hand, that we should give bread to thy men that are faint? 16 And he took the elders of the city with the thorns of the wilderness and the Barkenim, and with them he tore the men of the city. 17 And he overthrew the tower of Phanuel, and slew the men of the city. 18 And he said to Zebee and Salmana, Where [are] the men whom ye slew in Thabor? and they said, As thou, so [were] they, according to the likeness of the son of a king. 19 And Gedeon said, They were my brethren and the sons of my mother: [as] the Lord lives, if ye had preserved them alive, I would not have slain you. 20 And he said to Jether his first-born, Rise and slay them; but the lad drew not his sword, for he was afraid, for he was yet very young. 21 And Zebee and Salmana said, Rise thou and fall upon us, for thy power [is] as that of a man; and Gedeon arose, and slew Zebee and Salmana: and he took the round ornaments that were on the necks of their camels. 22 And the men of Israel said to Gedeon, Rule, [my] lord, over us, both thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son; for thou hast saved us out of the hand of Madiam. 23 And Gedeon said to them, I will not rule, and my son shall not rule among you; the Lord shall rule over you. 24 And Gedeon said to them, I will make a request of you, and do ye give me every man an earring out of his spoils: for they had golden earrings, for they were Ismaelites. 25 And they said, We will certainly give them: and he opened his garment, and each man cast therein an earring of his spoils. 26 And the weight of the golden earrings which he asked, was a thousand and seven hundred pieces of gold, besides the crescents, and the chains, and the garments, and the purple cloths that were on the kings of Madiam, and besides the chains that were on the necks of their camels. 27 And Gedeon made an ephod of it, and set it in his city in Ephratha; and all Israel went thither a whoring after it, and it became a stumbling-block to Gedeon and his house. 28 And Madiam, was straitened before the children of Israel, and they did not lift up their head any more; and the land had rest forty years in the days of Gedeon. 29 And Jerobaal the son of Joas went and sat in his house. 30 And Gedeon had seventy sons begotten of his body, for he had many wives. 31 And his concubine was in Sychem, and she also bore him a son, and gave him the name Abimelech. 32 And Gedeon son of Joas died in his city, and he was buried in the sepulchre of Joas his father in Ephratha of Abi-Esdri. 33 And it came to pass when Gedeon was dead, that the children of Israel turned, and went a whoring after Baalim, and made for themselves a covenant with Baal that he should be their god. 34 And the children of Israel remembered not the Lord their God who had delivered them out of the hand of all that afflicted them round about. 35 And they did not deal mercifully with the house of Jerobaal, (the same is Gedeon) according to all the good which he did to Israel. ΚΑΙ εἶπαν πρὸς Γεδεὼν ἀνὴρ ᾿Εφραίμ· τί τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ἐποίησας ἡμῖν τοῦ μὴ καλέσαι ἡμᾶς, ὅτε ἐπορεύθης παρατάξασθαι ἐν Μαδιάμ; καὶ διελέξαντο πρὸς αὐτὸν ἰσχυρῶς. 2 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτούς· τί ἐποίησα νῦν καθὼς ὑμεῖς; ἢ οὐχὶ κρεῖσσον ἐπιφυλλὶς ᾿Εφραὶμ ἢ τρυγητὸς ᾿Αβιέζερ; 3 ἐν χειρὶ ὑμῶν παρέδωκε Κύριος τοὺς ἄρχοντας Μαδιάμ, τὸν ᾿Ωρὴβ καὶ τὸν Ζήβ· καὶ τί ἠδυνήθην ποιῆσαι ὡς ὑμεῖς; τότε ἀνέθη τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτῶν ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτὸν τὸν λόγον τοῦτον. 4 καὶ ἦλθε Γεδεὼν ἐπὶ τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην, καὶ διέβη αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ τριακόσιοι ἄνδρες οἱ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ πεινῶντες καὶ διώκοντες. 5 καὶ εἶπε τοῖς ἀνδράσι Σοκχώθ· δότε δὴ ἄρτους εἰς τροφὴν τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ τῷ ἐν ποσί μου, ὅτι ἐκλείπουσι, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγώ εἰμι διώκων ὀπίσω τοῦ Ζεβεὲ καὶ Σελμανὰ βασιλέων Μαδιάμ. 6 καὶ εἶπον οἱ ἄρχοντες Σοκχώθ· μὴ χεὶρ Ζεβεὲ καὶ Σελμανὰ νῦν ἐν χειρί σου; οὐ δώσομεν τῇ δυνάμει σου ἄρτους; 7 καὶ εἶπε Γεδεών· διὰ τοῦτο ἐν τῷ δοῦναι Κύριον τὸν Ζεβεὲ καὶ τὸν Σελμανὰ ἐν χειρί μου, καὶ ἐγὼ ἀλοήσω τὰς σάρκας ὑμῶν ἐν ταῖς ἀκάνθαις τῆς ἐρήμου καὶ ἐν ταῖς Βαρκηνίμ. 8 καὶ ἀνέβη ἐκεῖθεν εἰς Φανουὴλ καὶ ἐλάλησε πρὸς αὐτοὺς ὡσαύτως, καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν αὐτῷ οἱ ἄνδρες Φανουὴλ ὃν τρόπον ἀπεκρίθησαν ἄνδρες Σοκχώθ. 9 καὶ εἶπε Γεδεὼν πρὸς ἄνδρας Φανουήλ· ἐν ἐπιστροφῇ μου μετ᾿ εἰρήνης κατασκάψω τὸν πύργον τοῦτον. 10 καὶ Ζεβεὲ καὶ Σελμανὰ ἐν Καρκάρ, καὶ ἡ παρεμβολὴ αὐτῶν μετ᾿ αὐτῶν ὡσεὶ δεκαπέντε χιλιάδες, πάντες οἱ καταλελειμμένοι ἀπὸ πάσης παρεμβολῆς ἀλλοφύλων, καὶ οἱ πεπτωκότες ἑκατὸν εἴκοσι χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν σπωμένων ρομφαίαν. 11 καὶ ἀνέβη Γεδεὼν ὁδὸν τῶν σκηνούντων ἐν σκηναῖς ἀπὸ ἀνατολῶν τῆς Ναβαὶ καὶ ᾿Ιεγεβάλ· καὶ ἐπάταξε τὴν παρεμβολήν, καὶ ἡ παρεμβολὴ ἦν πεποιθυῖα. 12 καὶ ἔφυγον Ζεβεὲ καὶ Σελμανά, καὶ ἐδίωξαν ὀπίσω αὐτῶν καὶ ἐκράτησε τοὺς δύο βασιλεῖς Μαδιάμ, τὸν Ζεβεὲ καὶ τὸν Σελμανά, καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν παρεμβολὴν ἐξέστησε. 13 καὶ ἐπέστρεψε Γεδεὼν υἱὸς ᾿Ιωὰς ἀπὸ τῆς παρατάξεως ἀπὸ ἐπάνωθεν τῆς παρατάξεως ᾿Αρές. 14 καὶ συνέλαβε παιδάριον ἀπὸ τῶν ἀνδρῶν Σοκχὼθ καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν αὐτόν, καὶ ἔγραψε πρὸς αὐτὸν ὀνόματα τῶν ἀρχόντων Σοκχὼθ καὶ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων αὐτῶν, ἑβδομήκοντα καὶ ἑπτὰ ἄνδρας. 15 καὶ παρεγένετο Γεδεὼν πρὸς τοὺς ἄρχοντας Σοκχὼθ καὶ εἶπεν· ἰδοὺ Ζεβεὲ καὶ Σελμανά, ἐν οἷς ὠνειδίσατέ με λέγοντες· μὴ χεὶρ Ζεβεὲ καὶ Σελμανὰ νῦν ἐν χειρί σου, ὅτι δώσομεν τοῖς ἀνδράσι σου τοῖς ἐκλείπουσιν ἄρτους; 16 καὶ ἔλαβε τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους τῆς πόλεως ἐν ταῖς ἀκάνθαις τῆς ἐρήμου καὶ ταῖς Βαρκηνὶμ καὶ ἠλόησεν ἐν αὐτοῖς τοὺς ἄνδρας τῆς πόλεως. 17 καὶ τὸν πύργον Φανουὴλ κατέσκαψε καὶ ἀπέκτεινε τοὺς ἄνδρας τῆς πόλεως. 18 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς Ζεβεὲ καὶ Σελμανά· ποῦ οἱ ἄνδρες, οὓς ἀπεκτείνατε ἐν Θαβώρ; καὶ εἶπαν· ὡς σύ, ὡς αὐτοὶ εἰς ὁμοίωμα υἱοῦ βασιλέως. 19 καὶ εἶπε Γεδεών· ἀδελφοί μου καὶ υἱοὶ τῆς μητρός μου ἦσαν· ζῇ Κύριος, εἰ ἐζωογονήκειτε αὐτούς, οὐκ ἂν ἀπέκτεινα ὑμᾶς. 20 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιεθὲρ τῷ πρωτοτόκῳ αὐτοῦ· ἀναστὰς ἀπόκτεινον αὐτούς· καὶ οὐκ ἔσπασε τὸ παιδάριον τὴν ρομφαίαν αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐφοβήθη, ὅτι ἔτι νεώτερος ἦν. 21 καὶ εἶπε Ζεβεὲ καὶ Σελμανά· ἀνάστα σὺ καὶ συνάντησον ἡμῖν, ὅτι ὡς ἀνδρὸς ἡ δύναμίς σου. καὶ ἀνέστη Γεδεὼν καὶ ἀπέκτεινε τὸν Ζεβεὲ καὶ τὸν Σελμανὰ καὶ ἔλαβε τοὺς μηνίσκους τοὺς ἐν τοῖς τραχήλοις τῶν καμήλων αὐτῶν. 22 Καὶ εἶπον ἀνὴρ ᾿Ισραὴλ πρὸς Γεδεών· κύριε, ἄρξον ἡμῶν καὶ σὺ καὶ ὁ υἱός σου καὶ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ υἱοῦ σου, ὅτι σὺ ἔσωσας ἡμᾶς ἐκ χειρὸς Μαδιάμ. 23 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτοὺς Γεδεών· οὐκ ἄρξω ἐγώ, καὶ οὐκ ἄρξει ὁ υἱός μου ἐν ὑμῖν· Κύριος ἄρξει ὑμῶν. 24 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτοὺς Γεδεών· αἰτήσομαι παρ᾿ ὑμῶν αἴτημα καὶ δότε μοι ἀνὴρ ἐνώτιον ἐκ σκύλων αὐτοῦ· ὅτι ἐνώτια χρυσᾶ αὐτοῖς, ὅτι ἦσαν ᾿Ισμαηλῖται. 25 καὶ εἶπαν· διδόντες δώσομεν· καὶ ἀνέπτυξε τὸ ἱμάτιον αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔβαλεν ἐκεῖ ἀνὴρ ἐνώτιον σκύλων αὐτοῦ. 26 καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ σταθμὸς τῶν ἐνωτίων τῶν χρυσῶν, ὧν ᾔτησε, χίλιοι καὶ ἑπτακόσιοι χρυσοῖ, πάρεξ τῶν μηνίσκων καὶ τῶν στραγγαλίδων καὶ τῶν ἱματίων καὶ πορφυρίδων τῶν ἐπὶ βασιλεῦσι Μαδιὰμ καὶ ἐκτὸς τῶν περιθεμάτων, ἃ ἦν ἐν τοῖς τραχήλοις τῶν καμήλων αὐτῶν. 27 καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτὸ Γεδεὼν εἰς ᾿Εφὼδ καὶ ἔστησεν αὐτὸ ἐν πόλει αὐτοῦ ᾿Εφραθά· καὶ ἐξεπόρνευσε πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἐγένετο τῷ Γεδεὼν καὶ τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ εἰς σκῶλον. 28 καὶ συνεστάλη Μαδιὰμ ἐνώπιον υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ οὐ προσέθηκαν ἆραι κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν. καὶ ἡσύχασεν ἡ γῆ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη ἐν ἡμέραις Γεδεών. 29 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ῾Ιεροβάαλ υἱὸς ᾿Ιωὰς καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐν οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ. 30 καὶ τῷ Γεδεὼν ἦσαν υἱοὶ ἑβδομήκοντα ἐκπορευόμενοι ἐκ μηρῶν αὐτοῦ, ὅτι γυναῖκες πολλαὶ ἦσαν αὐτῷ. 31 καὶ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ ἦν ἐν Συχέμ· καὶ ἔτεκεν αὐτῷ καί γε αὐτὴ υἱόν, καὶ ἔθηκε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ᾿Αβιμέλεχ. 32 καὶ ἀπέθανε Γεδεὼν υἱὸς ᾿Ιωὰς ἐν πόλει αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν τῷ τάφῳ ᾿Ιωὰς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν ᾿Εφραθὰ ᾿Αβιεσδρί. 33 Καὶ ἐγενήθη ὡς ἀπέθανε Γεδεών, καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἐξεπόρνευσαν ὀπίσω τῶν Βααλὶμ καὶ ἔθηκαν ἑαυτοῖς τῷ Βάαλ διαθήκην τοῦ εἶναι αὐτοῖς αὐτὸν εἰς θεόν. 34 καὶ οὐκ ἐμνήσθησαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ τοῦ ρυσαμένου αὐτοὺς ἐκ χειρὸς πάντων τῶν θλιβόντων αὐτοὺς κυκλόθεν. 35 καὶ οὐκ ἐποίησαν ἔλεος μετὰ τοῦ οἴκου ῾Ιεροβάαλ (αὐτός ἐστι Γεδεών) κατὰ πάντα τὰ ἀγαθά, ἃ ἐποίησε μετὰ ᾿Ισραήλ.
