Gideon went up by the Road of the Tent-Dwellers on the east of Nobah and Jogbehah and he struck the army; for the army was feeling secure. Bible

“the Road of the Tent-Dwellers.” Or, the Road of the Nomads. This was likely a main north-south road on a ridge, and the Midianites were headed south, back towards their homeland.

“for the army was feeling secure.” The Midianites had covered so much ground that they would have thought that no one would follow them that far without giving up the pursuit.
