Judges 5 New International Version (NIV)
The Song of Deborah
5 On that day Deborah and Barak son of Abinoam sang this song:
2 “When the princes in Israel take the lead,
3 “Hear this, you kings! Listen, you rulers!
4 “When you, Lord, went out from Seir,
6 “In the days of Shamgar son of Anath,
10 “You who ride on white donkeys,
“Then the people of the Lord
13 “The remnant of the nobles came down;
19 “Kings came, they fought,
24 “Most blessed of women be Jael,
28 “Through the window peered Sisera’s mother;
31 “So may all your enemies perish, Lord!
Then the land had peace forty years.
Judges 5 The Message (MSG)
5 That day Deborah and Barak son of Abinoam sang this song:
2 When they let down their hair in Israel,
3 Hear O kings! Listen O princes!
4-5 God, when you left Seir,
6-8 In the time of Shamgar son of Anath,
9 Lift your hearts high, O Israel,
10-11 You who ride on prize donkeys
Then the people of God
12 Wake up, wake up, Deborah!
13-18 Then the remnant went down to greet the brave ones.
19-23 The kings came, they fought,
24-27 Most blessed of all women is Jael,
28-30 Sisera’s mother waited at the window,
31 Thus may all God’s enemies perish,
The land was quiet for forty years.
