So is his strength — Thou excellest him, as in age and stature, so in strength; and it is more honourable to die by the hands of a valiant man.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Judges 8:21

Then Zebah and Zalmunna said, Rise thou, and fall upon us: for (l) as the man [is, so is] his strength. And Gideon arose, and slew Zebah and Zalmunna, and took away the ornaments that [were] on their camels' necks.

(l) Meaning, that they would be freed from their pain at once, or else have a valiant man put them to death.
