Bible: Judg 7:24-8:1
Gideon Appeases the Ephraimites
7:24 Now Gideon sent messengers throughout the Ephraimite hill country who announced, “Go down and head off the Midianites. 1 Take control of the fords of the streams 2 all the way to Beth Barah and the Jordan River.” 3 When all the Ephraimites had assembled, 4 they took control of the fords 5 all the way to Beth Barah and the Jordan River. 7:25 They captured the two Midianite generals, Oreb and Zeeb. 6 They executed Oreb on the rock of Oreb and Zeeb 7 in the winepress of Zeeb. They chased the Midianites 8 and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon, who was now on the other side of the Jordan River. 9
8:1 The Ephraimites said to him, “Why have you done such a thing to us? You did not summon us 10 when you went to fight the Midianites!” They argued vehemently with him.
