Judges 5:11-24


11 To the sound of musicians* at the watering-places,
   there they repeat the triumphs of the Lord,
   the triumphs of his peasantry in Israel.


‘Then down to the gates marched the people of the Lord.


12 ‘Awake, awake, Deborah!
   Awake, awake, utter a song!
Arise, Barak, lead away your captives,
   O son of Abinoam.
13 Then down marched the remnant of the noble;
   the people of the Lord marched down for him* against the mighty.
14 From Ephraim they set out* into the valley,*
   following you, Benjamin, with your kin;
from Machir marched down the commanders,
   and from Zebulun those who bear the marshal’s staff;
15 the chiefs of Issachar came with Deborah,
   and Issachar faithful to Barak;
   into the valley they rushed out at his heels.
Among the clans of Reuben
   there were great searchings of heart.
16 Why did you tarry among the sheepfolds,
   to hear the piping for the flocks?
Among the clans of Reuben
   there were great searchings of heart.
17 Gilead stayed beyond the Jordan;
   and Dan, why did he abide with the ships?
Asher sat still at the coast of the sea,
   settling down by his landings.
18 Zebulun is a people that scorned death;
   Naphtali too, on the heights of the field.


19 ‘The kings came, they fought;
   then fought the kings of Canaan,
at Taanach, by the waters of Megiddo;
   they got no spoils of silver.
20 The stars fought from heaven,
   from their courses they fought against Sisera.
21 The torrent Kishon swept them away,
   the onrushing torrent, the torrent Kishon.
   March on, my soul, with might!


22 ‘Then loud beat the horses’ hoofs
   with the galloping, galloping of his steeds.


23 ‘Curse Meroz, says the angel of the Lord,
   curse bitterly its inhabitants,
because they did not come to the help of the Lord,
   to the help of the Lord against the mighty.


24 ‘Most blessed of women be Jael,
   the wife of Heber the Kenite,
   of tent-dwelling women most blessed.
