 saying,
5:2 Praise ye the LORD for the avenging of Israel, when the
 people willingly offered themselves.

 sing to the LORD; I will sing [praise] to the LORD God of
 Israel.
5:4 LORD, when thou wentest out of Seir, when thou marchedst out
 of the field of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens

 from before the LORD God of Israel.

 Israel.
5:8 They chose new gods; then [was] war in the gates: was there
 a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?
5:9 My heart [is] towards the governors of Israel that offered
 themselves willingly among the people: Bless ye the LORD.
5:10 Speak, ye that ride on white asses, ye that sit in
 judgment, and walk by the way.
5:11 [They that are delivered] from the noise of archers in the
 places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the
 righteous acts of the LORD, [even] the righteous acts [towards
 the inhabitants] of his villages in Israel: then shall the
 people of the LORD go down to the gates.
5:12 Awake, awake, Deborah; awake, awake, utter a song: arise,
 Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam.
5:13 Then he made him that remaineth have dominion over the
 nobles among the people: the LORD made me have dominion over
 the mighty.
5:14 Out of Ephraim [was there] a root of them against Amalek;
 after thee, Benjamin, among thy people; out of Machir came down
 governors, and out of Zebulun they that handle the pen of the
 writer.
5:15 And the princes of Issachar [were] with Deborah: even
 Issachar, and also Barak: he was sent on foot into the valley.
 For the divisions of Reuben [there were] great thoughts of
 heart.
5:16 Why abodest thou among the sheep-folds, to hear the
 bleatings of the flocks? For the divisions of Reuben [there
 were] great searchings of heart.
5:17 Gilead abode beyond Jordan: and why did Dan remain in
 ships? Asher continued on the sea-shore, and abode in his
 breaches.

 lives to death in the high places of the field.
5:19 The kings came [and] fought, then fought the kings of
 Canaan in Tanach by the waters of Megiddo; they took no gain of
 money.

 against Sisera.
5:21 The river of Kishon swept them away, that ancient river,
 the river Kishon. O my soul, thou hast trodden down strength.
5:22 Then were the horse's hoofs broken by the means of the
 prancings, the prancings of their mighty ones.
5:23 Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the LORD, curse ye
 bitterly its inhabitants; because they came not to the help of
 the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty.

 be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent.
5:25 He asked water, [and] she gave [him] milk; she brought
 forth butter in a lordly dish.
5:26 She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the
 workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she
 smote off his head, when she had pierced and struck through his
 temples.

 bowed, he fell: where he bowed, there he fell down dead.
5:28 The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried
 through the lattice, Why is his chariot [so] long in coming?
 why tarry the wheels of his chariots?
5:29 Her wise ladies answered her, yes, she returned answer to
 herself.
5:30 Have they not found; have they [not] divided the prey; to
 every man a damsel [or] two; to Sisera a prey of divers colors,
 a prey of divers colors of needle-work, of divers colors of
 needle-work on both sides, [meet] for the necks of [them that
 take] the spoil?
5:31 So let all thy enemies perish, O LORD: but [let] them that
 love him [be] as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And
 the land had rest forty years.
