Judges



The book of Judges, chapter 7, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 7

Vulgate


   1 Igitur Ierobbaal, qui et Gedeon, de nocte consurgens et omnis populus cum eo castrame tati sunt ad fontem, qui vocatur Harad. Erant autem castra Madian in valle ad septentrionalem plagam collis Moreh.
   2 Dixitque Dominus ad Gedeon: "Maior tecum est populus, quam ut tradatur Madian in manus eius, ne glorietur contra me Israel et dicat: "Meis viribus liberatus sum"
   3 Loquere ad populum et, cunctis audientibus, praedica: "Qui formidolosus et timidus est, revertatur et recedat de monte Gelboe"" Et reversa sunt ex populo viginti duo milia virorum; et tantum decem milia remanserunt.
   4 Dixitque Dominus ad Gedeon: "Adhuc populus multus est; duc eos ad aquas, et ibi probabo illos, et, de quo dixero tibi ut tecum vadat, ipse pergat; quem ire prohibuero, revertatur"
   5 Cumque deduxisset populum ad aquas, dixit Dominus ad Gedeon: "Qui lingua lambuerint aquas, sicut solent canes lambere, separabis eos seorsum; qui autem curvatis genibus biberint, in altera parte erunt"
   6 Fuit itaque numerus eorum, qui manu ad os proiciente aquas lambuerant, trecenti viri; omnis autem reliqua multitudo flexo poplite biberat.
   7 Et ait Dominus ad Gedeon: "In trecentis viris, qui lambuerunt aquas, liberabo vos et tradam Madian in manu tua; omnis autem reliqua multitudo revertatur in locum suum"
   8 Sumptis itaque pro numero cibariis et tubis, omnem reliquam multitudinem abire praecepit ad tabernacula sua et ipse trecentos viros tenuit. Castra autem Madian erant subter eum in valle.
   9 Eadem nocte dixit Dominus ad eum: "Surge et descende in castra, quia tradidi ea in manu tua.
   10 Sin autem ire formidas, descendat tecum Phara puer tuus.
   11 Et, cum audieris quid loquantur, tunc confortabuntur manus tuae, et securior ad hostium castra descendes" Descendit ergo ipse et Phara puer eius in partem castrorum, ubi erant armatorum vigiliae.
   12 Madian autem et Amalec et omnes orientales populi fusi iacebant in valle ut locustarum multitudo; cameli quoque innumerabiles erant sicut arena, quae iacet in litoribus maris.
   13 Cumque venisset Gedeon, narrabat aliquis somnium proximo suo et dicebat: "Ecce vidi somnium, et videbatur mihi quasi subcinericius panis ex hordeo volvi et in Madian castra descendere; cumque pervenisset ad tabernaculum, percussit illud atque subvertit et terrae funditus coaequavit"
   14 Respondit is, cui loquebatur: "Non est hoc aliud nisi gladius Gedeonis filii Ioas viri Israelitae; tradidit Deus in manu eius Madian et omnia castra eius"
   15 Cumque audisset Gedeon somnium et interpretationem eius, adoravit et reversus ad castra Israel ait: "Surgite, tradidit enim Dominus in manus vestras castra Madian"
   16 Divisitque trecentos viros in tres partes et dedit tubas in manibus eorum lagoenasque vacuas ac lampades in medio lagoenarum
   17 et dixit ad eos: "Quod me facere videritis, hoc facite; ingrediar extremam partem castrorum, et, quod fecero, sectamini.
   18 Quando personaverit tuba in manu mea et omnium eorum, qui mecum sunt, vos quoque per castrorum circuitum clangite et conclamate: "Domino et Gedeoni!""
   19 Ingressusque est Gedeon et trecenti viri, qui erant cum eo, extremam partem castrorum, incipientibus vigiliis noctis mediae, cum eo ipso tempore custodes mutati essent, et coeperunt bucinis clangere et conterere lagoenas.
   20 Cumque in tribus personarent turmis et hydrias confregissent, tenuerunt sinistris manibus lampades et dextris sonantes tubas clamaveruntque: "Gladius Domino et Gedeoni!"
   21 stantes singuli in loco suo per circuitum castrorum hostilium. Omnia itaque castra turbata sunt, et vociferantes ululantesque fugerunt.
   22 Et insistebant trecenti viri bucinis personantes. Immisitque Dominus gladium in omnibus castris, et mutua se caede truncabant fugientes usque Bethsetta, Sareda et crepidinem Abelmehula in Tebbath.
   23 Convocati autem viri Israel de Nephthali et Aser et omni Manasse persequebantur Madian.
   24 Misitque Gedeon nuntios in omnem montem Ephraim dicens: "Descendite in occursum Madian et occupate aquas usque Bethbera atque Iordanem" Omnis Ephraim praeoccupavit aquas usque Bethbera atque Iordanem.
   25 Apprehensosque duos principes Madian Oreb et Zeb interfecit Oreb in Petra Oreb, Zeb vero in Torculari Zeb; et persecuti sunt Madian capita Oreb et Zeb portantes ad Gedeon trans fluenta Iordanis.

King James Version


   1 Then Jerubbaal, who is Gideon, and all the people that were with him, rose up early, and pitched beside the well of Harod: so that the host of the Midianites were on the north side of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley.
   2 And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.
   3 Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead. And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand.
   4 And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go.
   5 So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink.
   6 And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water.
   7 And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place.
   8 So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley.
   9 ¶ And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Arise, get thee down unto the host; for I have delivered it into thine hand.
   10 But if thou fear to go down, go thou with Phurah thy servant down to the host:
   11 And thou shalt hear what they say; and afterward shall thine hands be strengthened to go down unto the host. Then went he down with Phurah his servant unto the outside of the armed men that were in the host.
   12 And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like grasshoppers for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude.
   13 And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along.
   14 And his fellow answered and said, This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel: for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host.
   15 ¶ And it was so, when Gideon heard the telling of the dream, and the interpretation thereof, that he worshipped, and returned into the host of Israel, and said, Arise; for the LORD hath delivered into your hand the host of Midian.
   16 And he divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man's hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers.
   17 And he said unto them, Look on me, and do likewise: and, behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be that, as I do, so shall ye do.
   18 When I blow with a trumpet, I and all that are with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on every side of all the camp, and say, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon.
   19 ¶ So Gideon, and the hundred men that were with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that were in their hands.
   20 And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon.
   21 And they stood every man in his place round about the camp: and all the host ran, and cried, and fled.
   22 And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD set every man's sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled to Beth-shittah in Zererath, and to the border of Abel-meholah, unto Tabbath.
   23 And the men of Israel gathered themselves together out of Naphtali, and out of Asher, and out of all Manasseh, and pursued after the Midianites.
   24 ¶ And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, Come down against the Midianites, and take before them the waters unto Beth-barah and Jordan. Then all the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and took the waters unto Beth-barah and Jordan.
   25 And they took two princes of the Midianites, Oreb and Zeeb; and they slew Oreb upon the rock Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and pursued Midian, and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon on the other side Jordan.
