And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.
And the Lord said unto him, surely I will be with thee,.... The Targum is,

and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man; all together, and as easily as if thou hadst but one man to deal with, and the destruction be so entire and general that none shall be left.
