Gideon and the hundred men with him reached the edge of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just after they had changed the guard. They blew their trumpets and broke the jars1 that were in their hands.
The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches2 in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, "A sword3 for the LORD and for Gideon!"
When the three hundred trumpets sounded,5 the LORD caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other6 with their swords.7 The army fled to Beth Shittah toward Zererah as far as the border of Abel Meholah8 near Tabbath.
Gideon sent messengers throughout the hill country of Ephraim, saying, "Come down against the Midianites and seize the waters of the Jordan12 ahead of them as far as Beth Barah." So all the men of Ephraim were called out and they took the waters of the Jordan as far as Beth Barah.
They also captured two of the Midianite leaders, Oreb and Zeeb13. They killed Oreb at the rock of Oreb,14 and Zeeb at the winepress of Zeeb. They pursued the Midianites15 and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon, who was by the Jordan.16
