Judges 4

CLV(i) 1 And the sons of Israel add to do the evil thing in the eyes of Yahweh when Ehud is dead, 2 and Yahweh sells them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who has reigned in Hazor, and the head of his host [is] Sisera, and he is dwelling in Harosheth of the Goyim;" 3 and the sons of Israel cry unto Yahweh, for he has nine hundred chariots of iron, and he has oppressed the sons of Israel mightily twenty years. 4 And Deborah, a woman inspired, wife of Lapidoth, she is judging Israel at that time, 5 and she is dwelling under the palm-tree of Deborah, between Ramah and Beth-El, in the hill-country of Ephraim, and the sons of Israel go up unto her for judgment. 6 And she sends and calls for Barak son of Abinoam, out of Kedesh-Naphtali, and said unto him, `Has not Yahweh, Elohim of Israel, commanded? go, and you have drawn towards mount Tabor, and have taken with you ten thousand men, out of the sons of Naphtali, and out of the sons of Zebulun, 7 and I have drawn unto you, unto the brook Kishon, Sisera, head of the host of Jabin, and his chariot, and his multitude, and have given him into your hand.. 8 And Barak said unto her, `If you do go with me, then I have gone; and if you do not go with me, I do not go;. 9 and she said, `I do certainly go with you; only, surely your glory is not on the way which you are going, for into the hand of a woman does Yahweh sell Sisera;' and Deborah rises and goes with Barak to Kedesh. 10 And Barak calls Zebulun and Naphtali to Kedesh, and he goes up--at his feet [are] ten thousand men--and Deborah goes up with him. 11 And Heber the Kenite has been separated from the Kenite, from the sons of Hobab father-in-law of Moses, and he stretches out his tent unto the oak in Zaanaim, which [is] by Kedesh. 12 And they declare to Sisera that Barak son of Abinoam has gone up to mount Tabor, 13 and Sisera calls all his chariots, nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people who [are] with him, from Harosheth of the Goyim, unto the brook Kishon. 14 And Deborah said unto Barak, `Rise, for this [is] the day in which Yahweh has given Sisera into your hand; has not Yahweh gone out before you?' And Barak goes down from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men after him. 15 And Yahweh destroys Sisera, and all the chariots, and all the camp, by the mouth of the sword, before Barak, and Sisera comes down from off the chariot, and flees on his feet. 16 And Barak has pursued after the chariots and after the camp, unto Harosheth of the Goyim, and all the camp of Sisera falls by the mouth of the sword--there has not been left even one. 17 And Sisera has fled on his feet unto the tent of Jael wife of Heber the Kenite, for peace [is] between Jabin king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite;" 18 and Jael goes out to meet Sisera, and said unto him, `Turn aside, my lord, turn aside unto me, fear not;' and he turns aside unto her, into the tent, and she covers him with a coverlet. 19 And he said unto her, `Give me to drink, I pray you, a little water, for I am thirsty;' and she opens the bottle of milk, and gives him to drink, and covers him. 20 And he said unto her, `Stand at the opening of the tent, and it has been, if any does come in, and has asked you, and said, Is there a man here? that you have said, There is not.. 21 And Jael wife of Heber takes the pin of the tent, and takes the hammer in her hand, and goes unto him gently, and strikes the pin into his temples, and it fastens in the earth--and he has been fast asleep, and is weary--and he dies. 22 And lo, Barak is pursuing Sisera, and Jael comes out to meet him, and said to him, `Come, and I show you the man whom you are seeking;' and he comes in unto her, and lo, Sisera is fallen--dead, and the pin in his temples. 23 And Elohim humbles on that day Jabin king of Canaan before the sons of Israel, 24 and the hand of the sons of Israel goes, going on and becoming hard on Jabin king of Canaan, till that they have cut off Jabin king of Canaan.
