Lappeth. Judges 7:5. Orientals are accustomed to take up water in the hollow of the hand to drink with surprising agility. When Gideon's army came to the water side, some drank of it with the hand quickly, to be ready without delay to follow Gideon; while the thousands of fainthearted, that were sent away, stooped down to drink with so much tardiness and ceremony as to show that then- hearts were not with Gideon in his contemplated enterprise. The three hundred showed themselves men of alacrity and promptness, and therefore fit for the work.
