Judges 8:5 Parallel
CommentaryJudges 8:5 Parallel Commentaries
Jacob, on the other hand, traveled on to Succoth. There he built himself a house and made shelters for his livestock. That is why the place was named Succoth (which means "shelters").
By this time Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor with 15,000 warriors--all that remained of the allied armies of the east, for 120,000 had already been killed.
Zebah and Zalmunna, the two Midianite kings, fled, but Gideon chased them down and captured all their warriors.
Gideon then returned to Succoth and said to the leaders, "Here are Zebah and Zalmunna. When we were here before, you taunted me, saying, 'Catch Zebah and Zalmunna first, and then we will feed your exhausted army.'"
