28 So Midian was subdued before the children of Israel, and they lifted up their heads no more. And the land had rest forty years in the days of Gideon.
28 And Gedeon made an ephod of it, an set it in his city in Ephratha; and all Israel went thither a whoring after it, and it became a stumbling-block to Gedeon and his house.
28 Thus the Midianites were defeated before the children of Israel, so that they lifted up their heads no more. And the land was tranquil forty years in the days of Gideon.
29 And Jerubbaal the son of Joash went and dwelt in his own house.
29 And Madiam, was straitened before the children of Israel, and they did not lift up their head any more; and the land had rest forty years in the days of Gedeon.
29 But Midian was humbled before the sons of Israel. Neither were they able any longer to lift up their necks. But the land rested for forty years, while Gideon presided.
30 And Gideon had threescore and ten sons of his body begotten; for he had many wives.
30 And Jerobaal the son of Joas went and sat in his house.
30 And so Jerubbaal, the son of Joash, went and lived in his own house.
31 And his concubine that was in Shechem, she also bore him a son, and he called his name Abimelech.
31 And Gedeon had seventy sons begotten of his body, for he had many wives.
31 And he had seventy sons, who went forth from his own thigh. For he had many wives.

32 And his concubine was in Sychem, and she also bore him a son, and gave him the name Abimelech.
32 But his concubine, whom he had in Shechem, bore him a son named Abimelech.
33 And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon was dead, that the children of Israel again went astray after the Baalim, and made Baal- berith their god.
33 And Gedeon son of Joas died in his city, and he was buried in the sepulchre of Joas his father in Ephratha of Abi-Esdri.
33 And Gideon, the son of Joash, died in a good old age, and he was buried in the sepulcher of his father, at Ophrah, of the family of Ezri.
34 And the children of Israel remembered not YHWH their God, who had delivered them out of the hand of all their enemies on every side;
34 And it came to pass when Gedeon was dead, that the children of Israel turned, and went a whoring after Baalim, and made for themselves a covenant with Baal that he should be their god.
34 But after Gideon died, the sons of Israel turned away, and they committed fornication with the Baals. And they struck a covenant with Baal, so that he would be their god.
35 neither showed they kindness to the house of Jerubbaal, namely Gideon, according to all the goodness which he had shown unto Israel.
35 And the children of Israel remembered not the Lord their God who had delivered them out of the hand of all that afflicted them round about.
35 And they did not remember the Lord their God, who rescued them from the hands of all their enemies on all sides.
