JDG 9:47 And it was told Abimelech, that all the men of the tower of
Shechem were gathered together.
JDG 9:48 And Abimelech gat him up to mount Zalmon, he and all the
people that were with him; and Abimelech took an axe in his hand, and
cut down a bough from the trees, and took it, and laid it on his
shoulder, and said unto the people that were with him, What ye have seen
me do, make haste, and do as I have done.
JDG 9:49 And all the people likewise cut down every man his bough, and
followed Abimelech, and put them to the hold, and set the hold on fire
upon them; so that all the men of the tower of Shechem died also, about
a thousand men and women.
