Bible: Judges 5:6-8

5:6 In the days of Shamgar son of Anath,

in the days of Jael caravans 1  disappeared; 2 

travelers 3  had to go on winding side roads.

5:7 Warriors 4  were scarce, 5 

they were scarce in Israel,

until you 6  arose, Deborah,

until you arose as a motherly protector 7  in Israel.

5:8 God chose new leaders, 8 

then fighters appeared in the city gates; 9 

but, I swear, not a shield or spear could be found, 10 

among forty military units 11  in Israel.
