But if you are afraid to go down and attack, you go down with Purah your servant to the camp Bible

“go down with Purah your servant to the camp.” It is unfortunate that Judges 7:10 breaks here, because the whole sentence is: “But if you are afraid to go down and attack, you go down with Purah your servant to the camp and hear what they say; and afterward your hands will be strengthened to go down against the camp.” The text is playing “go down” against itself. Gideon could “go down” and attack, but if he is too afraid to do that, then he can “go down” and hear what the people are saying. The verse breaks were added centuries after even the text of the New Testament was written.
