The Lord said to Gideon, "All those who lap the water with their tongues, as a dog laps, you shall put to one side; all those who kneel down to drink, putting their hands to their mouths, you shall put to the other side." The number of those that lapped was 300; but all the rest of the troops knelt down to drink water. He took the 300 unwise people to fight for all of Israel.
