Today, Deborah and Barak put the victory God gave to Israel over Jabin into song. God avenged Israel when the people willingly gave themselves. As mentioned in the song, the tribes of Zebulun & Naphtali were willing to jeopardize their lives unto death in war.
More details were given about how God gave victory to Israel by turning the elements of nature against Siserah and his army. Jael too was declared blessed because of the role she played in defeating Siserah. Finally, we heard of the tragic expectation of Siserah’s mother. She thought it was business as usual, but her son did not return from battle that day.
The enemies of God are detroyed, but those that love him shine as the sun in its brightest.
Some verses to remember
vs 2: Praise ye the LORD for the avenging of Israel, when the people willingly offered themselves.
vs 13: Then he made him that remaineth have dominion over the nobles among the people: the LORD made me have dominion over the mighty.
vs 31: So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might.
