Gideon with two and thirty thousand men encamps against the Midianites; they, by God’s command and token, are lessened to three hundred, 1-8. He is encouraged by a dream, and its interpretation, 9-15; divideth his army companies; who all with one accord blow the trumpets, and break the pitchers, wherein the lamps were, in pieces, 16-20. The Midianites are terrified, flee and destroy one another, 21, 22. The next adjoining Israelites pursue them to stop their passage over Jordan: two princes of the Midianites are taken by the Ephraimites, 23-25.
