In this chapter we have an account of the distressed condition Israel
was in through the Midianites, \\#Jud 6:1-6\\, of a prophet being sent
unto them to reprieve them for their sins, \\#Jud 6:7-10\\ of an angel
appearing to Gideon, with an order to him to go and save Israel out of
the hands of the Midianites, \\#Jud 6:11-16\\ and of a sign given him
by the angel, whereby he knew this order was of God, \\#Jud 6:17-24\\,
and of the reformation from idolatry in his father's family he made
upon this, throwing down the altar of Baal, and building one for the
Lord, \\#Jud 6:25-32\\, and of the preparation he made to fight the
Midianites and others, \\#Jud 6:33-35\\, but first desired a sign of
the Lord, that Israel would be saved by his hand, which was granted and
repeated, \\#Jud 6:36-40\\.
