Tricky! Well known chapters are often the hardest, because I'm very conscious of what I'm leaving out.

This chapter needs to set up the action in the next chapter, so that's how I decided what to emphasise.

Which means we have no explicit mention of Baal's altar or the fleece. And it's too many words to repeat 'the Israelites did evil' at the beginning.

As always - make sure you read the full chapter!

V 6 Midian so impoverished the Israelites that they cried out to the Lord for help.
When will they ever learn He is our Peace!
