John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 6:26

Of this rock — Heb. of this strong hold: for in that calamitous time the Israelites retreated to such rocks, and hid and fortified themselves in them. Ordered place — That is, in a plain and smooth part of the rock, where an altar may be conveniently built. And offer — Gideon was no priest, nor was this the appointed place of sacrifice; but God can dispense with his own institutions, though we may not; and his call gave Gideon sufficient authority.
