So on that day he named him Jerubbaal, saying, “Let Baal contend against him because he has broken down his altar.” Bible see other translations

“he named him.” That is, Joash named Gideon.

“Jerubbaal.” The name is ambiguous and Baal could be the subject or object of the verb, and thus “Jerubbaal” could mean “Baal contends against,” but also perhaps “Contender against Baal” since Gideon broke down the altar of Baal.
