5Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day, saying,H7891H1683H1301H1121H42H3117H5592Praise ye the LORD for the avenging of Israel, when the people willingly offered themselves.H1288H3068H6544H6546H3478H5971H50683Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.H8085H4428H238H7336H7891H3068H2167H3068H430H34784LORD, when thou wentest out of Seir, when thou marchedst out of the field of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens dropped, the clouds also dropped water.H3068H3318H8165H6805H7704H123H776H7493H8064H5197H5645H5197H43255The mountains melted from before the LORD, even that Sinai from before the LORD God of Israel.H2022H5140H6440H3068H5514H6440H3068H430H34786In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were unoccupied, and the travellers walked through byways.H3117H8044H1121H6067H3117H3278H734H2308H1980H3212H6128H54107The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a mother in Israel.H6520H2308H2308H3478H1683H6965H6965H517H34788They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?H977H2319H430H3901H8179H4043H7420H7200H705H505H34789My heart is toward the governors of Israel, that offered themselves willingly among the people. Bless ye the LORD.H3820H2710H3478H5068H5971H1288H306810Speak, ye that ride on white asses, ye that sit in judgment, and walk by the way.H7878H7392H6715H860H3427H4055H1980H187011They that are delivered from the noise of archers in the places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the LORD, even the righteous acts toward the inhabitants of his villages in Israel: then shall the people of the LORD go down to the gates.H6963H2686H4857H8567H6666H3068H6666H6520H3478H5971H3068H3381H817912Awake, awake, Deborah: awake, awake, utter a song: arise, Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam.H5782H5782H1683H5782H5782H1696H7892H6965H1301H7628H7617H1121H4213Then he made him that remaineth have dominion over the nobles among the people: the LORD made me have dominion over the mighty.H8300H7287H117H5971H3068H7287H136814Out of Ephraim was there a root of them against Amalek; after thee, Benjamin, among thy people; out of Machir came down governors, and out of Zebulun they that handle the pen of the writer.H669H8328H6002H310H1144H5971H4353H3381H2710H2074H4900H7626H560815And the princes of Issachar were with Deborah; even Issachar, and also Barak: he was sent on foot into the valley. For the divisions of Reuben there were great thoughts of heart.H8269H3485H1683H3485H1301H7971H7272H6010H6390H7205H1419H2711H382016Why abodest thou among the sheepfolds, to hear the bleatings of the flocks? For the divisions of Reuben there were great searchings of heart.H3427H996H4942H8085H8292H5739H6390H7205H1419H2714H382017Gilead abode beyond Jordan: and why did Dan remain in ships? Asher continued on the sea shore, and abode in his breaches.H1568H7931H5676H3383H1835H1481H591H836H3427H3220H2348H7931H466418Zebulun and Naphtali were a people that jeoparded their lives unto the death in the high places of the field.H2074H5321H5971H2778H5315H4191H4791H770419The kings came and fought, then fought the kings of Canaan in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo; they took no gain of money.H4428H935H3898H3898H4428H3667H8590H4325H4023H3947H1215H370120They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera.H3898H8064H3556H4546H3898H551621The river of Kishon swept them away, that ancient river, the river Kishon. O my soul, thou hast trodden down strength.H5158H7028H1640H6917H5158H5158H7028H5315H1869H579722Then were the horsehoofs broken by the means of the pransings, the pransings of their mighty ones.H6119H5483H1986H1726H1726H4723Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the LORD, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty.H779H4789H559H4397H3068H779H779H3427H935H5833H3068H5833H3068H136824Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent.H1288H802H3278H802H2268H7017H1288H802H16825He asked water, and she gave him milk; she brought forth butter in a lordly dish.H7592H4325H5414H2461H7126H2529H117H560226She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples.H7971H3027H3489H3225H6001H1989H1986H5516H4277H7218H4272H2498H754127At her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay down: at her feet he bowed, he fell: where he bowed, there he fell down dead.H7272H3766H5307H7901H7272H3766H5307H834H3766H5307H770328The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried through the lattice, Why is his chariot so long in coming? why tarry the wheels of his chariots?H517H5516H8259H2474H2980H822H7393H954H935H309H6471H481829Her wise ladies answered her, yea, she returned answer to herself,H2450H8282H6030H7725H56130Have they not sped? have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two; to Sisera a prey of divers colours, a prey of divers colours of needlework, of divers colours of needlework on both sides, meet for the necks of them that take the spoil?H4672H2505H7998H7218H1397H7356H7361H5516H7998H6648H7998H6648H7553H6648H7553H6677H799831So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years.H341H6H3068H157H8121H3318H1369H776H8252H705H8141
