Bible: Judges 6:13-16

6:13 Gideon said to him, “Pardon me, 1  but if the Lord is with us, why has such disaster 2  overtaken us? Where are all his miraculous deeds our ancestors told us about? They said, 3 Did the Lord not bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and handed us over to Midian.” 6:14 Then the Lord himself 4  turned to him and said, “You have the strength. 5  Deliver Israel from the power of the Midianites! 6  Have I not sent you? 6:15 Gideon 7  said to him, “But Lord, 8  how 9  can I deliver Israel? Just look! My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the youngest in my family.” 10  6:16 The Lord said to him, “Ah, but 11  I will be with you! You will strike down the whole Midianite army.” 12
