    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 7:13

    Told a dream - Both the dream and the interpretation were inspired by God for the purpose of increasing the confidence of Gideon, and appalling his enemies.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 7:13

    A cake of barley bread - i. e. such a cake as could hardly be eaten by men, it was so vile: a term expressive of the contempt of the Midianites for the people of Israel.

    A tent - The tent, meaning, probably, the tent of the king of Midian, or of the captain of the host.

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 7:13

    7:13 A cake - A weak and contemptible thing; and in itself as unable to overthrow a tent, as to remove a mountain; but being thrown by a divine hand, it bore down all before it.
