And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel, and because of Midian the children of Israel made for themselves the dens that are in the mountains, and the caves and the strongholds. Bible see other translations

“the dens.” This is the only time this word occurs in the Old Testament. It may refer to longer dens, such as tunnels. Or it may refer to secret hiding places for things as well as people.
