A dog laps water. Anyone can imagine how a dog does so (vs. 5) Some of Gideons people were drinking that way. And the number of them that lapped were three hundred men (6a) If you sit on your knees, you cannot drink that way. In stead, you need to bring the water to your mouth by hand. Probably by a copying error, the words "putting their hand to their mouth" were put just after "lapped". In stead, they should be at the end of the verse: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water, putting their hand to their mouth.
