View In My Bible
12 The angel of the LORD appeared to him and said to him, "The LORD is with you, O valiant warrior." 13 Then Gideon said to him, "O my lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, 'Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt?' But 1now the LORD has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian." 14 The LORD alooked at him and said, "2Go in this your strength and deliver Israel from the hand of Midian. Have I not sent you?" 15 3He said to Him, "O Lord, bhow shall I deliver Israel? Behold, my family is the least in 4Manasseh, and I am the youngest in my father's house." 16 5But the LORD said to him, "Surely I will be with you, and you shall cdefeat Midian as one man." 17 So dGideon said to Him, "If now I have found favor in Your sight, then show me 6a sign that it is You who speak with me. 18 "Please do not depart from here, until I come back to You, and bring out my offering and lay it before You." And He said, "I will remain until you return." 19 Then Gideon went in and 7prepared a young goat and unleavened bread from an eephah of flour; he put the meat in a basket fand the broth in a pot, and brought them out to him under the goak and presented them. 20 The angel of God said to him, "Take the meat and the unleavened bread and lay them on this rock, and pour out the broth." And he did so. 21 Then the angel of the LORD put out the end of the staff that was in his hand and touched the meat and the unleavened bread; and 8fire sprang up from the rock and consumed the meat and the unleavened bread. Then the angel of the LORD hvanished from his sight. 22 9When Gideon saw that he was the angel of the LORD, ihe said, "Alas, O Lord jGOD! For now I have seen the angel of the LORD face to face."
