Midian Oppresses Israel

1Καὶ ἐποίησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραήλ τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου, καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος ἐν χειρὶ Μαδιὰμ ἑπτὰ ἔτη. 2καὶ ἴσχυσεν χεὶρ Μαδιὰμ ἐπὶ Ἰσραήλ· καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραὴλ ἀπὸ προσώπου Μαδιὰμ τὰς τρυμαλιὰς τὰς ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν καὶ τὰ σπήλαια καὶ τὰ κρεμαστά. 3καὶ ἐγένετο ἐὰν ἔσπειραν οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραήλ, καὶ ἀνέβαιναν Μαδιὰμ καὶ Ἀμαλήκ, καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ἀνατολῶν συνανέβαινον αὐτοῖς· καὶ παρενέβαλον εἰς αὐτούς, 4καὶ κατέφθειραν τοὺς καρποὺς αὐτῶν ἕως ἐλθεῖν εἰς Γάζαν, καὶ οὐ κατέλιπον ὑπόστασιν ζωῆς ἐν τῇ γῇ Ἰσραὴλ οὐδὲ ἐν τοῖς ποιμνίοις ταῦρον καὶ ὄνον. 5ὅτι αὐτοὶ καὶ αἱ κτήσεις αὐτῶν ἀνέβαινον, καὶ αἱ σκηναὶ αὐτῶν παρεγίνοντο, καθὼς ἀκρὶς εἰς πλῆθος, καὶ αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῖς καμήλοις αὐτῶν οὐκ ἦν ἀριθμός· καὶ ἤρχοντο εἰς τὴν γῆν Ἰσραὴλ καὶ διέφθειρον αὐτήν, 6καὶ ἐπτώχευσεν Ἰσραὴλ σφόδρα ἀπὸ προσώπου Μαδιάμ.

7Καὶ ἐβόησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραὴλ πρὸς Κύριον ἀπὸ προσώπου Μαδιάμ. 8καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν Κύριος ἄνδρα προφήτην πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς Ἰσραήλ, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Τάδε λέγει Κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ἰσραήλ Ἐγώ εἰμι ὃς ἀνήγαγον ὑμᾶς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου, καὶ ἐξήγαγον ὑμᾶς ἐξ οἴκου δουλίας ὑμῶν, 9καὶ ἐρρυσάμην ὑμᾶς ἐκ χειρὸς Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐκ χειρὸς πάντων τῶν θλιβόντων ὑμᾶς, καὶ ἐξέβαλον αὐτοὺς ἐκ προσώπου ὑμῶν, καὶ ἔδωκα ὑμῖν τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν· 10καὶ εἶπα ὑμῖν Ἐγὼ Κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν, οὐ φοβηθήσεσθε τοὺς θεοὺς τοῦ Ἀμορραίου, ἐν οἷς ὑμεῖς καθήσεσθε ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν· καὶ οὐκ εἰσηκούσατε τῆς φωνῆς μου.

The Call of Gideon

11Καὶ ἦλθεν ἄγγελος Κυρίου καὶ ἐκάθισεν ὑπὸ τὴν τερέμινθον τὴν ἐν Ἐφραθὰ ἐν τῇ Ἰωὰς πατρὸς τοῦ Ἐσδρεί· καὶ Γεδεὼν υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ῥαβδίζων σῖτον ἐν ληνῷ εἰς ἐκφυγεῖν ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ Μαδιάμ. 12καὶ ὤφθη αὐτῷ ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Κύριος μετὰ σοῦ, ἰσχυρὸς τῶν δυνάμεων. 13καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Γεδεών Ἐν ἐμοί, κύριέ μου, καὶ εἰ ἔστιν Κύριος μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν, εἰς τί εὗρεν ἡμᾶς τὰ κακὰ ταῦτα; καὶ ποῦ ἐστιν πάντα τὰ θαυμάσια αὐτοῦ ἃ διηγήσαντο ἡμῖν οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν λέγοντες Μὴ οὐχὶ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἀνήγαγεν ἡμᾶς Κύριος; καὶ νῦν ἐξέρριψεν ἡμᾶς καὶ ἔδωκεν ἡμᾶς ἐν χειρὶ Μαδιάμ. 14καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν πρὸς αὐτὸν ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν Πορεύου ἐν ἰσχύι σου ταύτῃ, καὶ σώσεις τὸν Ἰσραὴλ ἐκ χειρὸς Μαδιάμ· ἰδοὺ ἐξαπέστειλά σε. 15καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Γεδεών Ἐν ἐμοί, κύριέ μου, ἐν τίνι σώσω τὸν Ἰσραήλ; ἰδοὺ ἡ χιλιάς μου ἠσθένησεν ἐν Μανασσή, καὶ ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ μικρότερος ἐν οἴκῳ πατρός μου. 16καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου Κύριος ἔσται μετὰ σοῦ, καὶ πατάξεις τὴν Μαδιὰμ ὡσεὶ ἄνδρα ἕνα.

Gideon's Offering Consumed with Fire

17καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Γεδεών Εἰ δὲ εὗρον ἔλεος ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου καὶ ποιήσεις μοι σήμερον πᾶν ὅ τι ἐλάλησας μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ, 18μὴ χωρισθῇς ἐντεῦθεν ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν με πρὸς σέ· καὶ ἐξοίσω τὴν θυσίαν καὶ θήσω ἐνώπιόν σου. καὶ εἶπεν Ἐγώ εἰμι καθίσομαι ἕως τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι σε.

19καὶ Γεδεὼν εἰσῆλθεν καὶ ἐποίησεν ἔριφον αἰγῶν καὶ οἰφὶ ἀλεύρου, ἄζυμα, καὶ τὰ κρέα ἔθηκεν ἐν τῷ κοφίνῳ, καὶ τὸν ζωμὸν ἔβαλεν ἐν τῇ χύτρᾳ, καὶ ἐξήνεγκεν αὐτὰ πρὸς αὐτὸν ὑπὸ τὴν τερέμινθον· καὶ προσήγγισεν. 20καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν ὁ ἄγγελος τοῦ θεοῦ Λάβε τὰ κρέα τὰ ἄζυμα καὶ θὲς πρὸς τὴν πέτραν ἐκείνην, καὶ τὸν ζωμὸν ἐχόμενα ἔκχεε. καὶ ἐποίησεν οὕτως. 21καὶ ἐξέτεινεν ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου τὸ ἄκρον τῆς ῥάβδου τῆς ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἥψατο τῶν κρεῶν καὶ τῶν ἀξύμων, καὶ ἀνέβη πῦρ ἐκ τῆς πέτρας καὶ κατέφαγεν τὰ κρέα καὶ τοὺς ἀζύμους· καὶ ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου ἐπορεύθη ἀπὸ ὀφθαλμῶν αὐτοῦ. 22καὶ εἶδεν Γεδεὼν ὅτι ἄγγελος Κυρίου οὗτός ἐστιν· καὶ εἶπεν Γεδεών Ἆ ἆ, κύριέ μου Κύριε, ὅτι εἶδον ἄγγελον Κυρίου πρόσωπον πρόσωπον. 23καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Κύριος Εἰρήνη σοι, μὴ φοβοῦ, οὐ μὴ ἀποθάνῃς.

24καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ Γεδεὼν θυσιαστήριον τῷ κυρίῳ, καὶ ἐπεκάλεσεν αὐτῷ Εἰρήνη Κυρίου, ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης ἔτι αὐτοῦ ὄντος ἐν Ἐφραθὰ πατρὸς τοῦ Ἐσδρεί.

25Καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῇ νυκτὶ ἐκείνῃ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Κύριος Λάβε τὸν μόσχον τὸν ταῦρον ὅς ἐστιν τῷ πατρί σου καὶ μόσχον δεύτερον ἑπταετῆ, καὶ καθελεῖς τὸ θυσιαστήριον τοῦ Βάαλ ὅ ἐστιν τῷ πατρί σου, καὶ τὸ ἄλσος τὸ ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸ ὀλεθρεύσεις· 26καὶ οἰκοδομήσεις θυσιαστήριον τῷ κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ σου ἐπὶ κορυφὴν τοῦ Μαουὲκ τούτου ἐν τῇ παρατάξει, καὶ λήμψῃ τὸν μόσχον τὸν δεύτερον καὶ ἀνοίσεις ὁλοκαύτωμα ἐν τοῖς ξύλοις τοῦ ἄλσους οὗ ἐξολεθρεύσεις. 27καὶ ἔλαβεν Γεδεὼν δέκα ἄνδρας ἀπὸ τῶν δούλων ἑαυτοῦ, καὶ ἐποίησεν ὃν τρόπον ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Κύριος· καὶ ἐγενήθη ὡς ἐφοβήθη τὸν οἶκον τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς ἄνδρας τῆς πόλεως τοῦ ποιῆσαι ἡμέρας, καὶ ἐποίησεν νυκτός.

28καὶ ὤρθρισαν οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς πόλεως τὸ πρωί, καὶ ἰδοὺ καθῄρητο τὸ θυσιαστήριον τοῦ Βάαλ, καὶ τὸ ἄλσος τὸ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ ὠλέθρευτο· καὶ εἶδαν τὸν μόσχον τὸν δεύτερον, ὃν ἀνήνεγκεν ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ ᾠκοδομημένον. 29καὶ εἶπεν ἀνὴρ πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ Τίς ἐποίησεν τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο; καὶ ἐπεζήτησαν καὶ ἠρεύνησαν, καὶ ἔγνωσαν ὅτι Γεδεὼν υἱὸς Ἰωὰς ἐποίησεν τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο. 30καὶ εἶπον οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς πόλεως πρὸς Ἰωάς Ἐξένεγκε τὸν υἱόν σου καὶ ἀποθανέτω, ὅτι καθεῖλεν τὸ θυσιαστήριον τοῦ Βάαλ, καὶ ὅτι ὠλέθρευσεν τὸ ἄλσος τὸ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ. 31καὶ εἶπεν Γεδεὼν υἱὸς Ἰωὰς τοῖς ἀνδράσιν πᾶσιν οἳ ἐπανέστησαν αὐτῷ Μὴ ὑμεῖς νῦν δικάζεσθε ὑπὲρ τοῦ Βάαλ; ἢ ὑμεῖς σώσετε αὐτόν; ὃς ἐὰν δικάσηται αὐτῷ, θανατωθήτω ἕως πρωί· εἰ θεός ἐστιν, δικαζέσθω αὐτῷ, ὅτι καθεῖλεν τὸ θυσιαστήριον αὐτοῦ. 32καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὸ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ Ἀρβάαλ, λέγων Δικασάσθω ἐν αὐτῷ ὁ Βάαλ, ὅτι καθῃρέθη τὸ θυσιαστήριον αὐτοῦ.

Gideon's Army

33Καὶ πᾶσα Μαδιὰμ καὶ Ἀμαλὴκ καὶ υἱοὶ ἀνατολῶν συνήχθησαν ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό, καὶ παρενέβαλον ἐν κοιλάδι Ἐζερεέλ. 34καὶ πνεῦμα Κυρίου ἐνεδυνάμωσεν τὸν Γεδεών, καὶ ἐσάλπισεν ἐν κερατίνῃ, καὶ ἐφοβήθη Ἀβιέζερ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ. 35καὶ ἀγγέλους ἀπέστειλεν εἰς πάντα Μανασσὴ καὶ ἐν Ἀσὴρ καὶ ἐν Ζαβουλὼν καὶ Νεφθαλεί, καὶ ἀνέβη εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῶν.

The Signs of the Fleece

36καὶ εἶπεν Γεδεὼν πρὸς τὸν θεόν Εἰ σὺ σώζεις ἐν χειρί μου τὸν Ἰσραὴλ καθὼς ἐλάλησας, 37ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ τίθημι τὸν πόκον τοῦ ἐρίου ἐν τῇ ἅλωνι· ἐὰν δρόσος γένηται ἐπὶ τὸν πόκον μόνον καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ξηρασία, γνώσομαι ὅτι σώσεις ἐν χειρί μου τὸν Ἰσραὴλ καθὼς ἐλάλησας. 38καὶ ἐγένετο οὕτως· καὶ ὤρθρισεν τῇ ἐπαύριον καὶ ἐξεπίασεν τὸν πόκον, καὶ ἔσταξεν δρόσος ἀπὸ τοῦ πόκου, πλήρης λεκάνη ὕδατος. 39καὶ εἶπεν Γεδεὼν πρὸς τὸν θεόν Μὴ δὴ ὀργισθήτω ὁ θυμός σου ἐν ἐμοί, καὶ λαλήσω ἔτι ἅπαξ· πειράσω δὲ καί γε ἔτι ἅπαξ ἐν τῷ πόκῳ, καὶ γενέσθω ἡ ξηρασία ἐπὶ τὸν πόκον μόνον, καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν γενηθήτω δρόσος. 40καὶ ἐποίησεν οὕτως ὁ θεὸς ἐν τῇ νυκτὶ ἐκείνῃ· καὶ ἐγένετο ξηρασία ἐπὶ τὸν πόκον μόνον, καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ἐγενήθη δρόσος.
