2 When the leaders leadB in Israel,
when the people volunteer,

I will sing praise to the Lord God of Israel.
4 Lord, when you came from Seir,a
when you marched from the fields of Edom,
the earth trembled,b
the skies pouredc rain,
and the clouds poured water.
6 In the days of Shamgare son of Anath,
in the days of Jael,f
the main roads were deserted
because travelers kept to the side roads.
7 Villages were deserted,B
they were deserted in Israel,
until I,C Deborah, arose,
a mother in Israel.
then there was war in the city gates.
Not a shield or spear was seen
among forty thousand in Israel.
with the volunteers of the people.
Blessed be the Lord!
10 You who ride on whiteB donkeys,
who sit on saddle blankets,
and who travel on the road, give praise!
11 Let them tell the righteous actsg of the Lord,
the righteous deeds of his villagers in Israel,
with the voices of the singers at the watering places.B
Then the Lord’s people went down to the city gates.
Awake! Awake, sing a song!
and take your prisoners,
son of Abinoam!”
the Lord’s people came down to meD against the warriors.
14 Those with their roots in AmalekE came from Ephraim;
Benjamin came with your people after you.
The leaders came down from Machir,j
and those who carry a marshal’s staff came from Zebulun.
Issachar was with Barak;
There was great searchingG of heart
among the clans of Reuben.
16 Why did you sit among the sheep pensH
listening to the playing of pipes for the flocks?
There was great searching of heart
among the clans of Reuben.
17 Gileadl remained beyond the Jordan.
Dan, why did you linger at the ships?
Asher remained at the seashore
and stayed in his harbors.
Naphtali also, on the heights of the battlefield.
Then the kings of Canaan fought
at Taanach by the Waters of Megiddo,

She brought him creama in a majestic bowl.
her right hand, for a workman’s hammer.
Then she hammered Sisera—
she crushed his head;
she shattered and pierced his temple.
he collapsed, he fell between her feet;
where he collapsed, there he fell—dead.
she peered through the lattice, crying out:
“Why is his chariot so long in coming?
Why don’t I hear the hoofbeats of his horses?”A
she even answers herself:
a girl or twoC for each warrior,
the spoil of colored garments for Sisera,
the spoil of an embroidered garment or two for my neck?”D
31 Lord, may all your enemies perish as Sisera did.E
But may those who love him
be like the rising of the sun in its strength.
And the land had peace for forty years.
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
