But Gideon said to God, “Do not let your anger be kindled against me and let me speak but one more time. Please let me make a test only one more time with the fleece. Let it now be dry only on the fleece, and on all the ground let there be dew.” Bible see other translations

“make a test only one more time with the fleece.” Gideon is looking for a sign that God is involved in the battle and will give victory to Gideon. A secondary motive for the second test might be that since Baal was the storm and rain god, to make absolutely sure that God was more powerful or more in control than Baal, Gideon asks twice.
