(Hebrew: hewer)

One of the greater judges of Israel. His father, Joas, lived at Ephra, and was of the family of Abiezer and tribe of Manasses. Gedeon was sent by God to deliver Israel, which had forsaken Yahweh, and after destroying the altar of Baal, routed the Israelite enemies, the Madianites, with 300 men. His peaceful judgeship lasted 40 years.
