[b-hebrew] Language of the Midians

Being descendants of Abraham, the Midianites likely spoke a language that 
closely resembled Hebrew. Gideon, for instance, apparently had no difficulty 
in understanding the Midianites. (Jg 7:13-15; 8:18, 19) There is also a 
possibility, however, that Gideon learned the tongue of the Midianites, 
Israel having been under their domination for seven years.---Jg 6:1.
