New Defender's Study Bible Notes

7:20 sword of the LORD. This passage is widely known as a key motto of the Christian laymen’s organization known as the Gideons, with their local chapters known as camps and with their strong emphasis on the Scriptures as the sword of the Spirit, able to conquer the enemy and win victories for the Lord. The victory was a great testimony both to the remarkably effective victory stratagem devised by Gideon and the providential working of God.
