THE ARMY OF TRUMPETS AND LAMPS

 

Judges 7:15:22

15 And it was [so], when Gideon heard the telling of the dream,

and the interpretation thereof, that he worshipped, and returned

into the host of Israel, and said, Arise; for the LORD hath

delivered into your hand the host of Midian. 16 And he divided

the three hundred men [into] three companies, and he put a trumpet

in every man's hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the

pitchers. 17 And he said unto them, Look on me, and do likewise:

and, behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be

[that], as I do, so shall ye do. 18 When I blow with a trumpet, I

and all that [are] with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on

every side of all the camp, and say, [The sword] of the LORD, and

of Gideon. 19 So Gideon, and the hundred men that [were] with

him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the

middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew

the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that [were] in their hands.

20 And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the

pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets

in their right hands to blow [withal]: and they cried, The sword

of the LORD, and of Gideon. 21 And they stood every man in his

place round about the camp: and all the host ran, and cried, and

fled. 22 And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD

set every man's sword against his fellow, even throughout all the

host: and the host fled to Bethshittah in Zererath, [and] to the

border of Abelmeholah, unto Tabbath._
