AN ALTAR UNTO GOD 

 

Judges 6:25:32

25 And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto

him, Take thy father's young bullock, even the second bullock of

seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father

hath, and cut down the grove that [is] by it: 26 And build an

altar unto the LORD thy God upon the top of this rock, in the

ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt

sacrifice with the wood of the grove which thou shalt cut down. 27

Then Gideon took ten men of his servants, and did as the LORD had

said unto him: and [so] it was, because he feared his father's

household, and the men of the city, that he could not do [it] by

day, that he did [it] by night. 28 And when the men of the city

arose early in the morning, behold, the altar of Baal was cast

down, and the grove was cut down that [was] by it, and the second

bullock was offered upon the altar [that was] built. 29 And they

said one to another, Who hath done this thing? And when they

enquired and asked, they said, Gideon the son of Joash hath done

this thing. 30 Then the men of the city said unto Joash, Bring

out thy son, that he may die: because he hath cast down the altar

of Baal, and because he hath cut down the grove that [was] by it.

31 And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead

for Baal? will ye save him? he that will plead for him, let him be

put to death whilst [it is yet] morning: if he [be] a god, let him

plead for himself, because [one] hath cast down his altar. 32

Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal, saying, Let Baal

plead against him, because he hath thrown down his altar._
