Isralites are faulted for worshipping Baal instead of Jehovah. Jehovah is said to have abandoned the Israelites for worshiping false gods instead of Jehovah himself. Gideon chooses an army of 300 (Judges 7:8) to wage war against the Midianites. Gideon delivers Israelites from the hands of Midian raiders. Gideon captures the kings of Midian Zebah and Zalmunna (Judges 8:10). After Gideon's son Jeter shies away from decapitating the two Midianite kings, Gideon slays the kings personally (Judges 8:21).
