the mountains, and they robbed all that came along that way by them: and
it was told Abimelech.
JDG 9:26 And Gaal the son of Ebed came with his brethren, and went over
to Shechem: and the men of Shechem put their confidence in him.

vineyards, and trode the grapes, and made merry, and went into the house
of their god, and did eat and drink, and cursed Abimelech.
