And when the people were come down to the waters, the Lord said to Gedeon: They that shall lap the water with their tongues, as dogs are wont to lap, thou shalt set apart by themselves: but they that shall drink bowing down their knees, shall be on the other side.
King James
So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink.
Louis Second
Gédéon fit descendre le peuple vers l'eau, et l'Éternel dit à Gédéon: Tous ceux qui laperont l'eau avec la langue comme lape le chien, tu les sépareras de tous ceux qui se mettront à genoux pour boire
Martin Luther
Und er führete das Volk hinab ans Wasser. Und der HErr sprach zu Gideon: Welcher mit seiner Zunge des Wassers lecket, wie ein Hund lecket, den stelle besonders; desselbengleichen, welcher auf seine Kniee fällt zu trinken.
cumque descendisset populus ad aquas dixit Dominus ad Gedeon qui lingua lambuerint aquas sicut solent canes lambere separabis eos seorsum qui autem curvatis genibus biberint in altera parte erunt
