Judges 4:1–7


4 Again the Israelites did evilr in the eyes of the Lord,s now that Ehudt was dead. So the Lord sold themu into the hands of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor.v Sisera,w the commander of his army, was based in Harosheth Haggoyim. Because he had nine hundred chariots fitted with ironx and had cruelly oppressedy the Israelites for twenty years, they cried to the Lord for help.

Now Deborah,z a prophet,a the wife of Lappidoth, was leadinga Israel at that time. She held courtb under the Palm of Deborah between Ramahc and Betheld in the hill country of Ephraim, and the Israelites went up to her to have their disputes decided. She sent for Barak son of Abinoame from Kedeshf in Naphtali and said to him, “The Lord, the God of Israel, commands you: ‘Go, take with you ten thousand men of Naphtalig and Zebulunh and lead them up to Mount Tabor.i I will lead Sisera, the commander of Jabin’sj army, with his chariots and his troops to the Kishon Riverk and give him into your hands.l’ ”
