16 G2532 And G3568 now, G1487 if G1722 in G225 truth G2532 and G1722 in G5047 soundness G4160 you made G2532 even G936 Abimelech reign, G3588 G* G2532 and G1487 if G2573 [2well G4160 1you did] G3326 with G* Jerubbaal, G2532 and G3326 with G3588 G3624 his house, G1473 G2532 and G1487 if G2596 according to G3588 the G468 recompense G3588 of G5495 his hand G1473 G4160 you did G1473 to him,
17 G5613 as G4170 [2waged war G3588 G3962 1my father] G1473 G5228 for G1473 you, G2532 and G4495 tossed G5590 his life G1473 G1828.2 right opposite, G2532 and G4506 rescued G1473 you G1537 from out of G5495 the hand G* of Midian;
18 G2532 and G1473 you G1881 rose up G1909 against G3588 the G3624 house G3588 G3962 of my father G1473 G4594 today, G2532 and G615 you killed G3588 G5207 his sons, G1473 G1440 seventy G435 men G1909 upon G3037 [2stone G1520 1one]; G2532 and G936 you gave reign to G3588 G* Abimelech G5207 the son G3588 G3814 of his maidservant G1473 G1909 over G3588 the G435 men G* of Shechem, G3754 because G80 [2your brother G1473 G1510.2.3 1he is];

27 G2532 And G1831 they went forth G1519 into G68 the field, G2532 and G5166 gathered the vintage G3588 G290 of their vineyards, G1473 G2532 and G3961 they treaded, G2532 and G4160 they made G5525 a dance, G2532 and G1525 they entered G1519 into G3624 the house G2316 of their god, G1473 G2532 and G2068 they ate G2532 and G4095 drank, G2532 and G2672 they cursed G3588 G* Abimelech.
28 G2532 And G2036 [4said G* 1Gaal G5207 2son G* 3of Ebed], G5100 Who G1510.2.3 is G* Abimelech, G2532 and G5100 who G1510.2.3 is G5207 the son G* of Shechem, G3754 that G1398 we shall serve G1473 to him?

G2532 And G5100 why G3754 is it that G1398 we shall serve G1473 to him G1473 ourselves?
29 G2532 And G5100 if any should G1325 give G3588 G2992 this people G3778 G1722 into G5495 my hand, G1473 G2532 then G3179 I shall remove G3588 G* Abimelech. G2532 And G2046 I shall say G4314 to G* Abimelech, G4129 Multiply G3588 G1411 your force, G1473 G2532 and G1831 come forth!

G1473
34 G2532 And G450 Abimelech rose up, G* G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people G3588 G3326 with G1473 him G3571 at night, G2532 and G1748 they laid in wait G1909 at G* Shechem -- G5064 four G746 companies.

36 G2532 And G1492 [4saw G* 1Gaal G5207 2son G* 3of Ebed] G3588 the G2992 people. G2532 And G2036 he said G4314 to G* Zebul, G2400 Behold, G2992 a people G2597 coming G575 from G3588 the G2884.2 tops G3588 of the G3735 mountains. G2532 And G2036 [2said G4314 3to G1473 4him G* 1Zebul], G3588 The G4639 shadow G3588 of the G3735 mountains G1473 you G3708 see G5613 as G435 men.
37 G2532 And G4369 [2proceeded G2089 3still G* 1Gaal] G3588 G2980 to speak, G2532 and G2036 said, G2400 Behold, G2992 a people G2597 coming down G2596 as G2281 a sea G575 from G3588 the part G2192 next to G3588 the G3675.2 navel G3588 of the G1093 earth, G2532 and G746 [2company G1520 1one] G3854 arrives G575 from G3598 the way G1409.2 of the Oak G991 of the Seers.
