Judges 6:2-4 New Life Version (NLV)
2 Midian was stronger than Israel. Because of Midian the people of Israel made big caves in the sides of the mountains where they could live which were safe places for themselves. 3 For when Israel had planted seeds, the Midianites and Amalekites and the people of the east would come and fight against them. 4 They would set up their tents beside them and destroy the food of the field as far as Gaza. They would leave no food for Israel, and no sheep, cattle or donkeys.
