Judges 4 ©
Israel is oppressed by Jabin and Sisera. Deborah stirreth up Barak to their deliverance. Deborah and Barak go up with an army to mount Tabor. Sisera is defeated. He fleeth to the tent of Jael, who killeth him. Jabin is totally subdued.
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 Sisera 2gathered together all his chariots, even nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people that were with him, from cHarosheth of the Gentiles unto the river of dKishon.
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 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.
