13 Gideon ga helekai gi mee, “Meenei, maa nei bolo Dimaadua le e madalia gimaadou, gei nia mee huaidu huogodoo le e aha ala e hai mai gi gimaadou?

Tangada di langi ga helekai, “Au e noho gi hanimoi loo goe.”
19 Malaa, Gideon gaa hana gi lodo dono hale gaa dunu tamaa kuudi mo nia palaawaa digi unugi gi nia ‘yeast’ ne hai gi nia pauna palaawaa e motolu. Mee gaa dugu nia goneiga gi lodo di gada, mo di suub kuudi gi lodo di baalanga, gaa kae nia maa gi Tangada di langi o Dimaadua i lala di laagau ‘oak’ gaa wanga nia maa gi Mee. 20 Tangada di langi ga helekai gi mee, “Dugua nia goneiga mo nia palaawaa gi hongo di hadugalaa deenei, duu ia di suub kuudi gi hongo nia maa.” Gideon guu hai gii hai be nnelekai a Maa. 21 Tangada di langi o Dimaadua ga hagatale di bida dana laagau nogo daahi gi nia goneiga mo nia palaawaa, gei di ahi ga ulaula aga mai i di hadugalaa deelaa, gaa dudu nia goneiga mo nia palaawaa, ge tangada di langi gu de igolo.
22 Gideon ga iloo ia bolo ma Tangada di langi ni Dimaadua dela ne mmada gineia, gei mee gu madagu ga helekai, “Meenei Tagi go Yihowah, au guu mmada gi dau Dangada di langi gi ogu golomada!”
23 Gei Dimaadua ga helekai gi mee, “Di aumaalia gi madalia goe, hudee madagu. Goe hagalee made.” 24 Malaa, Gideon ga haga duu dana gowaa hai tigidaumaha ang gi Dimaadua i golo, ga haga ingoo di maa bolo “Yihowah Shalom”* “Yihowah Shalom” di ingoo deenei dono hadinga i nnelekai Hebrew boloo, “Dimaadua la go di Aumaalia.” (Di mee deenei le e duu hua igolo i Ophrah, tenua ni di madahaanau o Abiezer.)
25 Di boo hua deelaa, gei Dimaadua ga helekai gi Gideon, “Kae ina di kau daane o do damana mo tei kau daane dela e hidu ono ngadau, gei goe oho ina di gowaa dudu tigidaumaha do damana ang gi di balu god go Baal, hele ina gi daha di ada o di god ahina go Asherah, dela i baahi di maa. 26 Heia gi humalia dau gowaa dudu tigidaumaha ang gi Dimaadua go doo God, i hongo di gonduu deenei.

28 Di madagoaa nia daangada ne aala aga hagaluada dono daiaa, digaula ga gidee bolo di gowaa dudu tigidaumaha ang gi Baal mo di ada o Asherah la gu oho gi daha, ge togolua kau daane la guu dudu i hongo di gowaa dudu tigidaumaha dela ne hau i golo. 29 Digaula ga heheeu i nadau mehanga boloo, “Ma koai dela ne hai di mee deenei?”
Digaula ga halahala gaa gida bolo ma go Gideon go tama daane a Joash dela ne hai di maa. 30 Digaula ga helekai gi Joash, “Laha mai dau dama daane gi kinei e daaligi. Mee gu oho di gowaa dudu tigidaumaha ang gi Baal, guu hele di ada o di god ahina go Asherah dela nogo i baahi di maa.”
31 Joash ga helekai gi digaula huogodoo ala e heetugi hai baahi ang gi deia, “Goodou e abaaba di balu god Baal? Goodou e hagamaamaa a mee? Di ingoo hua tangada dela ma ga lagamaaloo mai i mee la ga daaligi gii made i mua di luada. Maa nei bolo Baal la di god, dugua anga gi mee gii bida abaabalia ia. Ma di gowaa dudu tigidaumaha ni mee dela ne oho.” 32 Tugi di madagoaa deelaa gaa hana gi muli, Gideon la gu haga ingoo bolo “Jerub Baal” Jerub Baal: di ingoo deenei dono hadinga i nnelekai Hebrew boloo, “Dugua anga gi Baal gii bida abaabalia ia” , idimaa Joash gu helekai boloo, “Dugua anga gi Baal gii bida abaabalia ia. Ma di gowaa dudu tigidaumaha ni mee dela ne oho.”
33 Digau huogodoo Midian, Amalek mo nia madawaawa o di anggowaa ga dagabuli mai, ga lloo adu gi di baahi i golo di monowai Jordan, gaa noho i hongo di gowaa mehanga gonduu o Jezreel. 34 Di Hagataalunga o Dimaadua ga ulu gi lodo o Gideon, gei mee ga ili dana buu ‘trumpet’ e gahi mai nia daane o di madahaanau o Abiezer belee hula dalia ia. 35 Mee ga hagau ana gau kae hegau laa lodo nia gowaa Manasseh e gahi mai digaula e hula dalia ia.
