WOMEN WHO SAVED A NATION


Later Sisera, who had nine hundred iron chariots, cruelly oppressed the Israelites for twenty
years. Then the prophetess Deborah, the wife of Lappidoth, delivered Israel. She used to sit
under the palm-tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the highlands of Ephraim;
and the Israelites went to her to have her decide their disputes.
She sent and called Barak, the of Abinoam, from Kadesh Naphtali and said to him,
"Does not Jehovah the God of Israel command you: 'Go, march to Mount Tabor and take
with you ten thousand of the Naphtalites and of the Zebulunites? Then I will draw out to you
at the brook Kishon Sisera with his chariots and his troops, and I will deliver him into your
hands.'" Barak said to her, "If you will go with me, I will go, but if you will not go with me, I
will not go." She replied, "I will certainly go with you, only you will not have the glory in this
expedition on which you are going, for Jehovah will deliver Sisera into the hands of a
woman."
So Deborah arose and went with Barak to Kadesh. Barak called the Zebulunites and the
Naphtalites together at Kadesh and ten thousand men followed him; and Deborah also went
up with him.
Now Heber the Kenite had left the Kenites, the of Jethro the father-in-law of Moses,
and had pitched his tent as far away as the oak which is near Kadesh.
When it was reported to Sisera that Barak the of Abinoam had gone up to Mount Tabor,
Sisera gathered together all his chariots, nine hundred iron chariots, and all his people from
the heathen city Harosheth to the brook Kishon. Then Deborah said to Barak, "To the
attack! for to-day Jehovah has delivered Sisera into your hands. Has not Jehovah gone out
before you?"

So Barak went down from Mount Tabor followed by ten thousand men; and at the attack of
Barak's swordsmen Jehovah put to flight Sisera and his chariots and all his forces, and
Sisera got down from his war-chariot and fled on foot. But Barak pursued the chariots and
the forces to Harosheth; and all the army of Sisera was destroyed by the sword; not a single
man was left
