5Then Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam sang on that day, saying:H7891H1683H1301H1121H42H3117H559 2"When leaders lead in Israel, When the people willingly offer themselves, Bless the LORD!H1288H3068H6544H6546H3478H5971H5068 3"Hear, O kings! Give ear, O princes! I, even I, will sing to the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.H8085H4428H238H7336H7891H3068H2167H3068H430H3478 4"LORD, when You went out from Seir, When You marched from the field of Edom, The earth trembled and the heavens poured, The clouds also poured water;H3068H3318H8165H6805H7704H123H776H7493H8064H5197H5645H5197H4325 5The mountains gushed before the LORD, This Sinai, before the LORD God of Israel.H2022H5140H6440H3068H5514H6440H3068H430H3478 6"In the days of Shamgar, son of Anath, In the days of Jael, The highways were deserted, And the travelers walked along the byways.H3117H8044H1121H6067H3117H3278H734H2308H1980H3212H6128H5410 7Village life ceased, it ceased in Israel, Until I, Deborah, arose, Arose a mother in Israel.H6520H2308H2308H3478H1683H6965H6965H517H3478 8They chose new gods; Then there was war in the gates; Not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel.H977H2319H430H3901H8179H4043H7420H7200H705H505H3478 9My heart is with the rulers of Israel Who offered themselves willingly with the people. Bless the LORD!H3820H2710H3478H5068H5971H1288H3068 10"Speak, you who ride on white donkeys, Who sit in judges' attire, And who walk along the road.H7878H7392H6715H860H3427H4055H1980H1870 11Far from the noise of the archers, among the watering places, There they shall recount the righteous acts of the LORD, The righteous acts for His villagers in Israel; Then the people of the LORD shall go down to the gates.H6963H2686H4857H8567H6666H3068H6666H6520H3478H5971H3068H3381H8179 12"Awake, awake, Deborah! Awake, awake, sing a song! Arise, Barak, and lead your captives away, O son of Abinoam!H5782H5782H1683H5782H5782H1696H7892H6965H1301H7628H7617H1121H42 13"Then the survivors came down, the people against the nobles; The LORD came down for me against the mighty.H8300H7287H117H5971H3068H7287H1368 14From Ephraim were those whose roots were in Amalek. After you, Benjamin, with your peoples, From Machir rulers came down, And from Zebulun those who bear the recruiter's staff.H669H8328H6002H310H1144H5971H4353H3381H2710H2074H4900H7626H5608 15And the princes of Issachar were with Deborah; As Issachar, so was Barak Sent into the valley under his command; Among the divisions of Reuben There were great resolves of heart.H8269H3485H1683H3485H1301H7971H7272H6010H6390H7205H1419H2711H3820 16Why did you sit among the sheepfolds, To hear the pipings for the flocks? The divisions of Reuben have great searchings of heart.H3427H996H4942H8085H8292H5739H6390H7205H1419H2714H3820 17Gilead stayed beyond the Jordan, And why did Dan remain on ships? Asher continued at the seashore, And stayed by his inlets.H1568H7931H5676H3383H1835H1481H591H836H3427H3220H2348H7931H4664 18Zebulun is a people who jeopardized their lives to the point of death, Naphtali also, on the heights of the battlefield.H2074H5321H5971H2778H5315H4191H4791H7704 19"The kings came and fought, Then the kings of Canaan fought In Taanach, by the waters of Megiddo; They took no spoils of silver.H4428H935H3898H3898H4428H3667H8590H4325H4023H3947H1215H3701 20They fought from the heavens; The stars from their courses fought against Sisera.H3898H8064H3556H4546H3898H5516 21The torrent of Kishon swept them away, That ancient torrent, the torrent of Kishon. O my soul, march on in strength!H5158H7028H1640H6917H5158H5158H7028H5315H1869H5797 22Then the horses' hooves pounded, The galloping, galloping of his steeds.H6119H5483H1986H1726H1726H47 23'Curse Meroz,' said the angel of the LORD, 'Curse its inhabitants bitterly, Because they did not come to the help of the LORD, To the help of the LORD against the mighty.'H779H4789H559H4397H3068H779H779H3427H935H5833H3068H5833H3068H1368 24"Most blessed among women is Jael, The wife of Heber the Kenite; Blessed is she among women in tents.H1288H802H3278H802H2268H7017H1288H802H168 25He asked for water, she gave milk; She brought out cream in a lordly bowl.H7592H4325H5414H2461H7126H2529H117H5602 26She stretched her hand to the tent peg, Her right hand to the workmen's hammer; She pounded Sisera, she pierced his head, She split and struck through his temple.H7971H3027H3489H3225H6001H1989H1986H5516H4277H7218H4272H2498H7541 27At her feet he sank, he fell, he lay still; At her feet he sank, he fell; Where he sank, there he fell dead.H7272H3766H5307H7901H7272H3766H5307H834H3766H5307H7703 28"The mother of Sisera looked through the window, And cried out through the lattice, 'Why is his chariot so long in coming? Why tarries the clatter of his chariots?'H517H5516H8259H2474H2980H822H7393H954H935H309H6471H4818 29Her wisest ladies answered her, Yes, she answered herself,H2450H8282H6030H7725H561 30'Are they not finding and dividing the spoil: To every man a girl or two; For Sisera, plunder of dyed garments, Plunder of garments embroidered and dyed, Two pieces of dyed embroidery for the neck of the looter?'H4672H2505H7998H7218H1397H7356H7361H5516H7998H6648H7998H6648H7553H6648H7553H6677H7998 31"Thus let all Your enemies perish, O LORD! But let those who love Him be like the sun When it comes out in full strength." So the land had rest for forty years.H341H6H3068H157H8121H3318H1369H776H8252H705H8141
