The Song of Deborah

5Then Deborah and Barak son of Abinoam sang on that day, saying:H7891H1683H1301H1121H42H3117H559 2"When locks are long in Israel, when the people offer themselves willingly—bless the LORD!H1288H3068H6544H6546H3478H5971H5068 3"Hear, O kings; give ear, O princes; to the LORD I will sing, I will make melody to the LORD, the God of Israel.H8085H4428H238H7336H7891H3068H2167H3068H430H3478 4"LORD, when you went out from Seir, when you marched from the region of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens poured, the clouds indeed poured water.H3068H3318H8165H6805H7704H123H776H7493H8064H5197H5645H5197H4325 5The mountains quaked before the LORD, the One of Sinai, before the LORD, the God of Israel.H2022H5140H6440H3068H5514H6440H3068H430H3478 6"In the days of Shamgar son of Anath, in the days of Jael, caravans ceased and travelers kept to the byways.H3117H8044H1121H6067H3117H3278H734H2308H1980H3212H6128H5410 7The peasantry prospered in Israel, they grew fat on plunder, because you arose, Deborah, arose as a mother in Israel.H6520H2308H2308H3478H1683H6965H6965H517H3478 8When new gods were chosen, then war was in the gates. Was shield or spear to be seen among forty thousand in Israel?H977H2319H430H3901H8179H4043H7420H7200H705H505H3478 9My heart goes out to the commanders of Israel who offered themselves willingly among the people. Bless the LORD.H3820H2710H3478H5068H5971H1288H3068 10"Tell of it, you who ride on white donkeys, you who sit on rich carpets and you who walk by the way.H7878H7392H6715H860H3427H4055H1980H1870 11To the sound of musicians at the watering places, there they repeat the triumphs of the LORD, the triumphs of his peasantry in Israel. "Then down to the gates marched the people of the LORD.H6963H2686H4857H8567H6666H3068H6666H6520H3478H5971H3068H3381H8179 12"Awake, awake, Deborah! Awake, awake, utter a song! Arise, Barak, lead away your captives, O son of Abinoam.H5782H5782H1683H5782H5782H1696H7892H6965H1301H7628H7617H1121H42 13Then down marched the remnant of the noble; the people of the LORD marched down for him against the mighty.H8300H7287H117H5971H3068H7287H1368 14From Ephraim they set out into the valley, following you, Benjamin, with your kin; from Machir marched down the commanders, and from Zebulun those who bear the marshal's staff;H669H8328H6002H310H1144H5971H4353H3381H2710H2074H4900H7626H5608 15the chiefs of Issachar came with Deborah, and Issachar faithful to Barak; into the valley they rushed out at his heels. Among the clans of Reuben there were great searchings of heart.H8269H3485H1683H3485H1301H7971H7272H6010H6390H7205H1419H2711H3820 16Why did you tarry among the sheepfolds, to hear the piping for the flocks? Among the clans of Reuben there were great searchings of heart.H3427H996H4942H8085H8292H5739H6390H7205H1419H2714H3820 17Gilead stayed beyond the Jordan; and Dan, why did he abide with the ships? Asher sat still at the coast of the sea, settling down by his landings.H1568H7931H5676H3383H1835H1481H591H836H3427H3220H2348H7931H4664 18Zebulun is a people that scorned death; Naphtali too, on the heights of the field.H2074H5321H5971H2778H5315H4191H4791H7704 19"The kings came, they fought; then fought the kings of Canaan, at Taanach, by the waters of Megiddo; they got no spoils of silver.H4428H935H3898H3898H4428H3667H8590H4325H4023H3947H1215H3701 20The stars fought from heaven, from their courses they fought against Sisera.H3898H8064H3556H4546H3898H5516 21The torrent Kishon swept them away, the onrushing torrent, the torrent Kishon. March on, my soul, with might!H5158H7028H1640H6917H5158H5158H7028H5315H1869H5797 22"Then loud beat the horses' hoofs with the galloping, galloping of his steeds.H6119H5483H1986H1726H1726H47 23"Curse Meroz, says the angel of the LORD, curse bitterly its inhabitants, because they did not come to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty.H779H4789H559H4397H3068H779H779H3427H935H5833H3068H5833H3068H1368 24"Most blessed of women be Jael, the wife of Heber the Kenite, of tent-dwelling women most blessed.H1288H802H3278H802H2268H7017H1288H802H168 25He asked water and she gave him milk, she brought him curds in a lordly bowl.H7592H4325H5414H2461H7126H2529H117H5602 26She put her hand to the tent peg and her right hand to the workmen's mallet; she struck Sisera a blow, she crushed his head, she shattered and pierced his temple.H7971H3027H3489H3225H6001H1989H1986H5516H4277H7218H4272H2498H7541 27He sank, he fell, he lay still at her feet; at her feet he sank, he fell; where he sank, there he fell dead.H7272H3766H5307H7901H7272H3766H5307H834H3766H5307H7703 28"Out of the window she peered, the mother of Sisera gazed through the lattice: 'Why is his chariot so long in coming? Why tarry the hoofbeats of his chariots?'H517H5516H8259H2474H2980H822H7393H954H935H309H6471H4818 29Her wisest ladies make answer, indeed, she answers the question herself:H2450H8282H6030H7725H561 30'Are they not finding and dividing the spoil?—A girl or two for every man; spoil of dyed stuffs for Sisera, spoil of dyed stuffs embroidered, two pieces of dyed work embroidered for my neck as spoil?'H4672H2505H7998H7218H1397H7356H7361H5516H7998H6648H7998H6648H7553H6648H7553H6677H7998 31"So perish all your enemies, O LORD! But may your friends be like the sun as it rises in its might." And the land had rest forty years.H341H6H3068H157H8121H3318H1369H776H8252H705H8141
