Gilead, Mount

Judges 7:3
A mount occupied by Gideon before he attacked the Midianites and Amalekites (Judg. 7:33Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead. And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand. (Judges 7:3)). Some suppose that “Gilboa” should be read, but there is no MSS authority for the change. It may be that the tribe of Manasseh on the west had named one of their mountains “Gilead,” which is not mentioned elsewhere.
