And he came to the men of Succoth and said, “Look! Zebah and Zalmunna, about whom you ridiculed me, saying, ‘Is the palm of Zebah and Zalmunna now in your hand, that we should give bread to your men who are exhausted?’” Bible

“He came to the men of Succoth.” That Gideon came to Succoth before Penuel indicates that after the battle with Zebah and Zalmunna, Gideon came back a different way than he had gone.
