And they went out into the field and harvested their vineyards and trod the grapes and held a celebration, and went into the house of their god and ate and drank, and reviled Abimelech. Bible

“trod the grapes.” The grape harvest is typically in July (it may be a little later, but July is later).

“the house of their god.” That is, the temple of their god.

“and reviled Abimelech.” Although the Hebrew word is used for “cursed,” it can also have the idea of “reviled” (R. Altar) or “made light of” (E. Fox). Since we have a record of what they said in Judges 9:28, “reviled” is a good translation.
