The angel of the Lord thrust out (angelus Domini extendit) the summit of the staff which he held in his hand (summitatem virgae quam tenebat in manu), and he touched the meat and unleavened bread (et tetigit carnes et azymos panes). And a fire arose from the rock (ascenditque ignis de petra) and the meat and it burned up/consumed the meat and unleavened [bread] (et consumpsit carnes azymosque). The angel of the Lord, however/also (angelus Domini autem), vanished out of his sight (evanuit ex oculis eius).

When he was hitherto (cum esset adhuc) in Ephra, which is of the family of Ezri (in Ephra, quae est familiae Ezri),
nocte illa dixit Dominus ad eum tolle taurum patris tui et alterum taurum annorum septem destruesque aram Baal quae est patris tui et nemus quod circa aram est succide

adsumptis igitur Gedeon decem viris de servis suis fecit sicut praeceperat Dominus timens autem domum patris sui et homines illius civitatis per diem facere noluit sed omnia nocte conplevit
Gedeon, therefore, taking ten men from his own servants (Gedeon igitur, adsumptis decem viris de suis servis), did just as (fecit sicut) the Lord had instructed (Dominus praeceperat).

cumque surrexissent viri oppidi eius mane viderunt destructam aram Baal lucumque succisum et taurum alterum inpositum super altare quod tunc aedificatum erat

dixeruntque ad invicem quis hoc fecit cumque perquirerent auctorem facti dictum est Gedeon filius Ioas fecit haec Omnia
And they said to each other (dixeruntque ad invicem—literally “in turn, mutually”), who has done this (quis fecit hoc)? And when they searched everywhere for (perquirerent) the authority of the creation (auctorem facti?) it was said Gedeon, son of Joas, did all this (dictum est Gedeon, filius Ioas fecit haec Omnia).
et dixerunt ad Ioas produc filium tuum ut moriatur quia destruxit aram Baal et succidit nemus
And they said to Joas (et dixerunt ad Ioas), produce your son (produc—literally “lead forward/bring out”—filium tuum) so that he may die (ut moriatur), because he has destroyed (quia destruxit) the altar of Baal and he has cut down his forest (aram Baal et succidit nemus).
quibus ille respondit numquid ultores estis Baal et pugnatis pro eo qui adversarius eius est moriatur antequam lux crastina veniat si deus est vindicet se de eo qui suffodit aram eius
Who [Joas?] answered that (quibus respondit ille): Is it possible (numquid) you are the avengers (esTIS ultores) of Baal and you fight for him (Baal et pugnaTIS pro eo)? Any that is his adversary (qui est eius adversarius), let him die (moriaTUR) before the light of tomorrow comes (antequam lux crastina veniat). If he is a god (si est deus), let him avenge himself (vindicet se) on him (de eo—de doesn’t translate that way, but it’s all that makes sense) who undermined his altar (qui suffodit aram eius).
ex illo die vocatus est Gedeon Hierobbaal eo quod dixisset Ioas ulciscatur se de eo Baal qui suffodit altare eius
Out of that day (from that day? Ex illo die), Gedeon was called Jerobaal (Gedeon vocatus est Hierobbaal), because Joas had said (quod Ioas dixisset) let Baal avenge himself (Baal ulciscatur se) on him (de eo) who undermined his altar (qui suffodit eius altare).
Can’t quite figure out what the first eo is doing.
