    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 6:18

    And bring forth my present - My minchah; generally an offering of bread, wine, oil, flour, and such like. It seems from this that Gideon supposed the person to whom he spoke to be a Divine person. Nevertheless, what he prepared and brought out appears to be intended simply as an entertainment to refresh a respectable stranger.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 6:18

    My present - My Minchah: the word used regularly, though not exclusively, for the meat and drink offering (Leviticus 2:1 note). Its double sense of an offering to God, and of a gift to man, suits the doubt in Gideon's mind as to who his visitor might be.

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 6:18

    6:18 My present - A repast for the angel, whom he thought to be a man. Set it - That thou mayest eat and refresh thyself.
