Again we see that there is peace through the lifetime of a leader, but we also see something seriously wrong that Gideon did. He made a sacred ephod, which people worshiped - it became a snare to Gideon and his family.

Judges 8:27-28

New King James Version (NKJV)

27 Then Gideon made it into an ephod and set it up in his city, Ophrah. And all Israel played the harlot with it there. It became a snare to Gideon and to his house.

28 Thus Midian was subdued before the children of Israel, so that they lifted their heads no more. And the country was quiet for forty years in the days of Gideon.
