11 And there came an angel of the Lord, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash lthe Abi-ezrite: and his son *Gideon mthreshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites. 12 And the nangel of the Lord appeared unto him, and said unto him, The Lord is owith thee, thou mighty man of valour. 13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the Lord be with us, why then is all this pbefallen us? and qwhere be all his miracles rwhich our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? but now the Lord hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the bMidianites. 14 And the Lord looked upon him, and said, sGo in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the bMidianites: thave not I sent thee? 15 And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, u||my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house. 16 And the Lord said unto him, wSurely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the bMidianites as one man. 17 And he said unto him, If now xI have found grace in thy sight, then yshew me a sign that thou talkest with me. 18 zDepart not hence, I pray thee, until I come unto thee, and bring forth my ||present, and set it before thee. And he said, I will tarry until thou come again.

19 aAnd Gideon went in, and made ready a kid, and unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought it out unto him under the oak, and presented it. 20 And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and blay them upon this rock, and cpour out the broth. And he did so. 21 Then the angel of the Lord put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and dthere rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the Lord departed out of his sight. 22 And when Gideon eperceived that he was an angel of the Lord, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord God! ffor because I have seen an angel of the Lord face to face.
