The Israelites for their sin are oppressed by Midian. A prophet rebuketh them. An angel sendeth Gideon for their deliverance. Gideon's present is consumed with fire. Gideon destroyeth Baal's altar, and offereth a sacrifice upon the altar YAHWEH-shalom. Joash defendeth his son, and calleth him Jerubbaal. Gideon's army. Gideon's signs.
