11 Now the Angel of the Lord came and sat under the terebinth tree which was in Ophrah, which belonged to Joash lthe Abiezrite, while his son mGideon threshed wheat in the winepress, in order to hide it from the Midianites. 12 And the nAngel of the Lord appeared to him, and said to him, “The Lord is owith you, you mighty man of valor!”
13 Gideon said to Him, “O 3my lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And pwhere are all His miracles qwhich our fathers told us about, saying, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the Lord has rforsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.”
17 Then he said to Him, “If now I have found favor in Your sight, then wshow me a sign that it is You who talk with me. 18 xDo not depart from here, I pray, until I come to You and bring out my offering and set it before You.”
And He said, “I will wait until you come back.”
19 ySo Gideon went in and prepared a young goat, and unleavened bread from an ephah of flour. The meat he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot; and he brought them out to Him under the terebinth tree and presented them. 20 The Angel of God said to him, “Take the meat and the unleavened bread and zlay them on this rock, and apour 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 bfire rose out of the rock and consumed the meat and the unleavened bread. And the Angel of the Lord departed out of his sight.
23 Then the Lord said to him, e“Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die.” 24 So Gideon built an altar there to the Lord, and called it 6The-Lord-Is-Peace. To this day it is still fin Ophrah of the Abiezrites.
