According to biblehub - we are discovering a weakness in Gideon - the want of prosperity:

Verse 24. - I would desire a request of you. Again human weakness breaks out in this great man, and we seem to see the effect of great prosperity in stirring up selfish desires in his heart.

It was perhaps not without significance that mention was made in ver. 21 of his taking the ornaments that were on the camels' necks in connection with the slaughter of the kings. Anyhow we have now a second instance of a love of spoil.

It seems to have been a national custom with the Ishmaelites, among whom the Midianites are reckoned (see Genesis 37:25-28), to wear golden rings; hence when they came to strip the slain there was a vast booty of gold rings. These Gideon asked for as his share...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77528726


The people readily agreed to his request:

Judges 8:25 And they answered, We will willingly give them to you
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75719921


The spoils were of a significant value:

Judges 8:26 And the weight of the golden earrings that he requested was a thousand and seven hundred shekels of gold; beside ornaments, and collars, and purple raiment that was on the kings of Midian, and beside the chains that were about their camels' necks.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77543094


Gideon depended on God for his decisions on the battlefield, but forgot to be prayerful in his duties as a judge:

Judges 8:27 And Gideon made an ephod thereof, and put it in his city, even in Ophrah: and all Israel went thither a whoring after it....
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77551956


That bad decision pretty much plagued him his entire life:

Judges 8:27...which thing became a snare unto Gideon, and to his house.

Question: "What was the significance of the ephod?"

Answer: In the Old Testament, the ephod has two meanings. In one group of passages, it signifies a garment...

It is certain that the word cannot here refer to a garment. This is evident in Judges 8:26–27, where it is recorded that Gideon took the golden earrings of the Midianites, weighing 1,700 shekels of gold, and made an “ephod thereof...

The most natural inference from all these passages is that “ephod” here signifies an image that was set up in the sanctuary, especially since the word is cited with teraphim, which undoubtedly refers to graven images (Hosea 3:4). The conclusion is that ephod, in these cases, refers to a portable idol....

Summary of how God made Gideon (the skeptic), into Gideon, the hero:

Judges 6: 1-5 the people of Israel worship other gods and God becomes angry. He decides to send the Midianites out against them.
Judges 6: 6-10 the people are frustrated and cry out to God. He sends a prophet who tells them why they’re being oppressed. He wants them to repent.
Judges 6: 11-13 an angel of the Lord appears to Gideon and tells him that he has been chosen by God to free his people.
Judges 6: 14-16 Gideon questions God’s decision for choosing him. He claims to be too weak to accomplish this feat.
Judges 6: 17-40 Gideon questions God again and makes special requests to validate his choice. Gideon finally believes the Lord.
Judges 7:2 Gideon had selected many warriors, but God wanted their numbers reduced so that they would not claim that the victory came from them.
Judges 7: 18-25 Gideon and his forces defeat the Midianites.
Judges 8: 28 Gideon ruled the Israelites for 40 years before he died.
Judges 8:33 after Gideon had died, the people of Israel started to worship foreign gods once again.

As the Israelis amply proved - it only takes one generation for a 'great falling away':

2 Thess 2

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition

Won't quote the New Testment - however, this passage is in many books there.

Here it is quoted from the OLD Testament:

Him Whom They (Israelis) Have Pierced - Jesus

Zechariah 12:10

10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn.

----

Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded (pierced) for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

The Israelis went into captivity & are still in captivity until Jesus returns:

Won't quote anymore - but you can read it for yourself in Zechariah 14:1-3

33 And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon was dead, that the children of Israel turned again, and went a whoring after Baalim, and made Baalberith their god.

God was so disgusted with them he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon....

----

Abimelech was a son of Gideon, the King of Israel, and his concubine from Shechem. He sought to rule over Shechem by killing all other sons of Gideon, who were all slain except for Gideon's youngest son, Jotham. Abimelech then became the King of Shechem, ruling for three years before a conspiracy arose against him. He commanded by force, murdered his opposition, and led in such a manner that even his subjects sought to overthrow him.

A civil war broke out, leading to a battle at a town called Thebez where Abimelech surrounded the leaders of the city in a tower and approached with the intention of burning it down.

However, a woman in the tower heroically dropped a large rock on Abimelech's head and cracked his skull. Nearing death, he called out to a comrade to stab him as being killed by a woman was considered disgraceful in that time. This was an appropriate end for Abimelech's malevolent regime and the evil he had committed against his own brothers and people. In contrast to the positive lead of his father, Abimelech focused on his own personal gain, hurting many in the process....

Abimelech was a son of Gideon, the King of Israel, and his concubine from Shechem. He sought to rule over Shechem by killing all other sons of Gideon, who were all slain except for Gideon's youngest son, Jotham. Abimelech then became the King of Shechem, ruling for three years before a conspiracy arose against him. He commanded by force, murdered his opposition, and led in such a manner that even his subjects sought to overthrow him.

A civil war broke out, leading to a battle at a town called Thebez where Abimelech surrounded the leaders of the city in a tower and approached with the intention of burning it down.

However, a woman in the tower heroically dropped a large rock on Abimelech's head and cracked his skull. Nearing death, he called out to a comrade to stab him as being killed by a woman was considered disgraceful in that time. This was an appropriate end for Abimelech's malevolent regime and the evil he had committed against his own brothers and people. In contrast to the positive lead of his father, Abimelech focused on his own personal gain, hurting many in the process....

Samson

Accomplishing God's Purpose the Hard Way

Small Excerpt:

Ask someone who was the strongest man in the Bible and you’ll likely hear “Samson.” After all, it’s not every day that one hears of a man who kills 1,000 men in hand-to-hand combat. Armed with only the jawbone of a donkey, Samson was one tough adversary (Judges 15:15). Set during the time of Israel’s judges some 3,000 years ago, Samson’s life was a highly unusual one—yet one that bears lessons for us today....

As we consider Samson’s life, it is important for us to understand from the outset that God is not calling men today to imitate Samson’s conduct. As a physical, carnal nation, ancient Israel waged war with other nations. New Testament Christians, however, look to future citizenship in God’s Kingdom, which is not of this world, and do not fight in physical warfare, being ministers of life, not death (see Matthew 5:38-39, 43-44; John 18:36; 2 Corinthians 3:6)...

By the time Abimelech (son of Gideon) et. al. died, the Israelis worshiped Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines...Completely forsaking God.

God was so disgusted with them he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon....
