When the people of Israel again did what the Eternal One considered evil, He made them serve the Midianites for seven years. The power of Midian prevailed over Israel so that the Israelites built for themselves hiding places in the mountains, in caves, and in safe strongholds. Whenever the Israelites planted seed, the soldiers of Midian, Amalek, and others from the east would rise up against them and destroy their farms and fields as far as Gaza in the west, leaving them nothing to eat and no livestock.They would come up with their tents and their livestock, as thick as a cloud of locusts. They and their camels were so numerous they could not be counted, and they left the land desolate behind them.

So the people of Israel were impoverished because of the Midianites, and they cried out to the Eternal One for helpWhen the people of Israel cried to the Eternal for relief from the Midianites, He sent a prophet to them. Judges 6
