11At that time, the Angel of the Lord came to a man named Gideon. The Angel of the Lord came and sat down under an oak tree at a place called Ophrah. This oak tree belonged to a man named Joash. Joash was from the Abiezer family. Joash was the father of Gideon. Gideon was beating some wheat in a winepress. The Angel of the Lord sat down near Gideon. Gideon was hiding so the Midianites could not see the wheat.
