Judges 4 ©
1 Israel is oppressed by Jabin and Sisera. 4 Deborah stirreth up Barak to their deliverance. 10 Deborah and Barak go up with an army to mount Tabor. Sisera is defeated. 17 He fleeth to the tent of Jael, who killeth him. 23 Jabin is totally subdued.
AND the children of Israel aagain did evil in the sight of the LORD, when Ehud was dead.
And the children of Israel gcried unto the LORD: for he had nine hundred hchariots of iron; and twenty years ihe mightily oppressed the children of Israel.
And she dwelt under kthe palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Beth-el in lmount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.
And she sent and called mBarak the son of Abinoam out of nKedesh-naphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the oLORD God of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward pmount Tabor, and take with thee qten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?
And Barak said unto her, tIf thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go.
And Deborah said unto Barak, Up; for this is the day in which the LORD hath delivered Sisera into thine hand: eis not the LORD gone out before thee? So Barak went down from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men after him.
And fthe LORD *discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and all his host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; so that Sisera lighted down off his chariot, and fled away on his feet.
But Barak gpursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto Harosheth of the Gentiles: and all the host of Sisera fell upon the edge of the sword; and there was not 3a man left.
¶And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said unto him, Turn in, my lord, turn in to me; fear not. And when he had turned in unto her into the tent, she covered him with a 4mantle.
Again he said unto her, Stand in the door of the tent, and it shall be, when any man doth come and enquire of thee, and say, Is there any man here? that thou shalt say, No.
And, behold, as Barak pursued Sisera, Jael came out to meet him, and said unto him, Come, and I will shew thee the man whom thou seekest. And when he came into her tent, behold, Sisera lay dead, and the nail was in his temples.
And the hand of the children of Israel 6prospered, and prevailed against Jabin the king of Canaan, until they had destroyed Jabin king of Canaan.
