And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD when Ehud was dead.
And the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor, the captain of whose host was Sisera, who dwelt in Harosheth of the Gentiles.
And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD; for he had nine hundred chariots of iron, and twenty years he mightily oppressed the children of Israel.
And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, judged Israel at that time.
And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in Mount Ephraim, and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.
And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, "Hath not the LORD God of Israel commanded, saying, `Go and draw near Mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun;
and I will draw unto thee Sisera, the captain of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his multitude to the River Kishon; and I will deliver him into thine hand'?"
