„Gaal, son of Ebed, went out and stood at the entrance of the city gate. When Abimelech and his soldiers rose from their place of ambush, 36Gaal saw the soldiers and said to Zebul, There are soldiers coming down from the mountaintops! But Zebul answered him, It is the shadow of the hills that you see as men. 37But Gaal went on to say, Soldiers are coming down from the region of Tabbur-haarez, and one company is coming by way of Elon-meonenim. 38Zebul said to him, Where now is your boast, when you said, Who is Abimelech that we should serve him? Are these not the troops for whom you expressed contempt? Go out now and fight with them. 39So Gaal went out at the head of the lords of Shechem to fight against Abimelech; 40but when Abimelech went after him, he fled from him. Many fell slain right up to the entrance of the gate”.
