And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel, [a]and because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them dens in the mountains, and caves, and strongholds.

When Israel had sown, then came up the Midianites, the Amalekites, and they of the [b]East, and came upon them,

And camped by them, and destroyed the fruit of the earth, even till thou come unto [c]Gaza, and left no food for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass.
