This says Gideon kept the men who drank with their mouths to the stream. It is a bit confusing because of the word lapped. God said to keep the men who lapped out of their hands.
Three hundred men lapped with their hands to their mouths. All the rest got down on their knees to drink. The LORD said to Gideon, "With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands. Let all the other men go, each to his own place."
