View In My Bible


1 After Ehud1 died, the Israelites once again did evil2 in the eyes of the LORD.3 2 So the LORD sold them4 into the hands of Jabin, a king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor.5 The commander of his army was Sisera,6 who lived in Harosheth Haggoyim. 3 Because he had nine hundred iron chariots7 and had cruelly oppressed8 the Israelites for twenty years, they cried to the LORD for help. 4 Deborah,9 a prophetess,10 the wife of Lappidoth, was leadinga Israel at that time. 5 She held court11 under the Palm of Deborah between Ramah12 and Bethel13 in the hill country of Ephraim, and the Israelites came to her to have their disputes decided. 6 She sent for Barak son of Abinoam14 from Kedesh15 in Naphtali and said to him, "The LORD, the God of Israel, commands you: 'Go, take with you ten thousand men of Naphtali16 and Zebulun17 and lead the way to Mount Tabor.18 7 I will lure Sisera, the commander of Jabin's19 army, with his chariots and his troops to the Kishon River20 and give him into your hands.21' " 8 Barak said to her, "If you go with me, I will go; but if you don't go with me, I won't go."
