Judges 8:32

Judges 8:32

And Gideon the son of Joash died in a good old age
Having lived it seems forty years after his war with Midian, blessed with a large family, much wealth and riches, great credit and esteem among his people, and in favour with God and men:

and was buried in the sepulchre of Joash his father, in Ophrah of the
Abiezrites;
a city which belonged to the family of the Abiezrites, who were of the tribe of Manasseh, in which Gideon lived, and his father before him; and where there was a family vault, in which he was interred. In the days of this judge it is supposed F13 was the famous expedition of the Argonauts to Colchis, to fetch from thence the golden fleece.
