  • 1 Samuel 14 8-1 Samuel 14 16
    “ All right,” Jonathan replied,“ we’ll cross over to the men and then let them see us.If they say,‘ Wait until we reach you,’ then we will stay where we are and not go up to them.But if they say,‘ Come on up,’ then we’ll go up, because the LORD has handed them over to us— that will be our sign.”They let themselves be seen by the Philistine garrison, and the Philistines said,“ Look, the Hebrews are coming out of the holes where they’ve been hiding!”The men of the garrison called to Jonathan and his armor-bearer.“ Come on up, and we’ll teach you a lesson!” they said.“ Follow me,” Jonathan told his armor-bearer,“ for the LORD has handed them over to Israel.”Jonathan climbed up using his hands and feet, with his armor-bearer behind him. Jonathan cut them down, and his armor-bearer followed and finished them off.In that first assault Jonathan and his armor-bearer struck down about twenty men in a half-acre field.Terror spread through the Philistine camp and the open fields to all the troops. Even the garrison and the raiding parties were terrified. The earth shook, and terror spread from God.When Saul’s watchmen in Gibeah of Benjamin looked, they saw the panicking troops scattering in every direction.

  • Joshua 11:4-8
    They went out with all their armies— a multitude as numerous as the sand on the seashore— along with a vast number of horses and chariots.All these kings joined forces; they came and camped together at the Waters of Merom to attack Israel.The LORD said to Joshua,“ Do not be afraid of them, for at this time tomorrow I will cause all of them to be killed before Israel. You are to hamstring their horses and burn their chariots.”So Joshua and all his troops surprised them at the Waters of Merom and attacked them.The LORD handed them over to Israel, and they struck them down, pursuing them as far as greater Sidon and Misrephoth-maim, and to the east as far as the Valley of Mizpeh. They struck them down, leaving no survivors.
  • Judges 7:12-25
    Now the Midianites, Amalekites, and all the people of the east had settled down in the valley like a swarm of locusts, and their camels were as innumerable as the sand on the seashore.When Gideon arrived, there was a man telling his friend about a dream. He said,“ Listen, I had a dream: a loaf of barley bread came tumbling into the Midianite camp, struck a tent, and it fell. The loaf turned the tent upside down so that it collapsed.”His friend answered,“ This is nothing less than the sword of Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite. God has handed the entire Midianite camp over to him.”When Gideon heard the account of the dream and its interpretation, he bowed in worship. He returned to Israel’s camp and said,“ Get up, for the LORD has handed the Midianite camp over to you.”Then he divided the three hundred men into three companies and gave each of the men a ram’s horn in one hand and an empty pitcher with a torch inside it in the other hand.“ Watch me,” he said to them,“ and do what I do. When I come to the outpost of the camp, do as I do.When I and everyone with me blow our ram’s horns, you are also to blow your ram’s horns all around the camp. Then you will say,‘ For the LORD and for Gideon!’”Gideon and the hundred men who were with him went to the outpost of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch after the sentries had been stationed. They blew their ram’s horns and broke the pitchers that were in their hands.The three companies blew their ram’s horns and shattered their pitchers. They held their torches in their left hands and their ram’s horns to blow in their right hands, and they shouted,“ A sword for the LORD and for Gideon!”Each Israelite took his position around the camp, and the entire Midianite army began to run, and they cried out as they fled.When Gideon’s men blew their three hundred ram’s horns, the LORD caused the men in the whole army to turn on each other with their swords. They fled to Acacia House in the direction of Zererah as far as the border of Abel-meholah near Tabbath.Then the men of Israel were called from Naphtali, Asher, and Manasseh, and they pursued the Midianites.Gideon sent messengers throughout the hill country of Ephraim with this message:“ Come down to intercept the Midianites and take control of the watercourses ahead of them as far as Beth-barah and the Jordan.” So all the men of Ephraim were called out, and they took control of the watercourses as far as Beth-barah and the Jordan.They captured Oreb and Zeeb, the two princes of Midian; they killed Oreb at the rock of Oreb and Zeeb at the winepress of Zeeb, while they were pursuing the Midianites. They brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon across the Jordan.
  • 1 Kings 20 27-1 Kings 20 29
    The Israelites mobilized, gathered supplies, and went to fight them. The Israelites camped in front of them like two little flocks of goats, while the Arameans filled the landscape.Then the man of God approached and said to the king of Israel,“ This is what the LORD says:‘ Because the Arameans have said,“ The LORD is a god of the mountains and not a god of the valleys,” I will hand over all this whole huge army to you. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’”They camped opposite each other for seven days. On the seventh day, the battle took place, and the Israelites struck down the Arameans— one hundred thousand foot soldiers in one day.

    Then Ishbi-benob, one of the descendants of the giant, whose bronze spear weighed about eight pounds and who wore new armor, intended to kill David.But Abishai son of Zeruiah came to his aid, struck the Philistine, and killed him. Then David’s men swore to him,“ You must never again go out with us to battle. You must not extinguish the lamp of Israel.”After this, there was another battle with the Philistines at Gob. At that time Sibbecai the Hushathite killed Saph, who was one of the descendants of the giant.Once again there was a battle with the Philistines at Gob, and Elhanan son of Jaare-oregim the Bethlehemite killed Goliath of Gath. The shaft of his spear was like a weaver’s beam.At Gath there was still another battle. A huge man was there with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot— twenty-four in all. He, too, was descended from the giant.When he taunted Israel, Jonathan, son of David’s brother Shimei, killed him.These four were descended from the giant in Gath and were killed by David and his soldiers.

They came as far as Mareshah.So Asa marched out against him and lined up in battle formation in Zephathah Valley at Mareshah.Then Asa cried out to the LORD his God,“ LORD, there is no one besides you to help the mighty and those without strength. Help us, LORD our God, for we depend on you, and in your name we have come against this large army. LORD, you are our God. Do not let a mere mortal hinder you.”So the LORD routed the Cushites before Asa and before Judah, and the Cushites fled.Then Asa and the people who were with him pursued them as far as Gerar. The Cushites fell until they had no survivors, for they were crushed before the LORD and his army. So the people of Judah carried off a great supply of loot.

  • 1 Samuel 17 45-1 Samuel 17 49
    David said to the Philistine,“ You come against me with a sword, spear, and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD of Armies, the God of the ranks of Israel— you have defied him.Today, the LORD will hand you over to me. Today, I’ll strike you down, remove your head, and give the corpses of the Philistine camp to the birds of the sky and the wild creatures of the earth. Then all the world will know that Israel has a God,and this whole assembly will know that it is not by sword or by spear that the LORD saves, for the battle is the LORD’s. He will hand you over to us.”When the Philistine started forward to attack him, David ran quickly to the battle line to meet the Philistine.David put his hand in the bag, took out a stone, slung it, and hit the Philistine on his forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown to the ground.
