Bible: Judges 4:1-5

Deborah Summons Barak

4:1 The Israelites again did evil in the Lord’s sight 1  after Ehud’s death. 4:2 The Lord turned them over to 2  King Jabin of Canaan, who ruled in Hazor. 3  The general of his army was Sisera, who lived in Harosheth Haggoyim. 4  4:3 The Israelites cried out for help to the Lord, because Sisera 5  had nine hundred chariots with iron-rimmed wheels, 6  and he cruelly 7  oppressed the Israelites for twenty years.

4:4 Now Deborah, a prophetess, 8  wife of Lappidoth, was 9  leading 10  Israel at that time. 4:5 She would sit 11  under the Date Palm Tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel 12  in the Ephraimite hill country. The Israelites would come up to her to have their disputes settled. 13
