Judges 4
NMV
4
1And the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] again did evil in the sight of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), when Ehud [I will Give Thanks: I will be Praised] was dead.
2And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) sold them into the hand of Yavin [Whom God Observes] king of Kena’an [Merchant], that reigned in Hatzor [Castle]; the captain of whose host [was] Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)], which dwelt in Haroshet-HaGoyim [Woodland of the Gentiles] of the Gentiles.
3And the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] cried unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): for he had nine hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
4And D’vorah [Bee], a prophetess, the wife of Lapidot [Torches], she judged Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] at that time.
5And she dwelt under the palm tree of D’vorah [Bee] between Ramah [Hill] and Beit-El [House of God] in mount Efrayim [Doubly Fruitful]: and the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] came up to her for judgment.
6And she sent and called Barak [Lightning] the son of Avino’am [My Father is Delight] out of Kedesh [Holy Place] [Holy Place] in Naftali [My Wrestling], and said unto him, Has not the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] commanded, [saying], Go and draw toward mount Tavor [Mound], and take with youi ten thousand men of the children of Naftali [My Wrestling] and of the children of Z’vulun [Glorious Dwelling Place]?
7And I will draw unto youi to the river Kishon [Winding] Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)], the captain of Yavin [Whom God Observes]’s army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into youi hand.
8And Barak [Lightning] said unto her, If youi will go with me, then I will go: but if youi will not go with me, [then] I will not go.
9And she said, I will surely go with youi: notwithstanding the journey that youi take shall not be for youri honour; for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shall sell Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)] into the hand of a woman. And D’vorah [Bee] arose, and went with Barak [Lightning] to Kedesh [Holy Place] [Holy Place].
10And Barak [Lightning] called Z’vulun [Glorious Dwelling Place] and Naftali [My Wrestling] to Kedesh [Holy Place]; and he went up with ten thousand men at his feet: and D’vorah [Bee] went up with him.
11Now Hever [Comrade] the Kayin [Possession], [which was] of the children of Hovav [Cherished] the father in law of Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], had severed himself from the Keini [traveling tinkers or blacksmiths], and pitched his tent unto the plain of Tza’ananim [Removings], which [is] by Kedesh [Holy Place] [Holy Place]..
12And they showed Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)] that Barak [Lightning] the son of Avino’am [My Father is Delight] was gone up to mount Tavor [Mound].
13And Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)] gathered together all his chariots, [even] nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people that [were] with him, from Haroshet-HaGoyim [Woodland of the Gentiles] unto the river of Kishon [Winding].
14And D’vorah [Bee] said unto Barak [Lightning], Up; for this [is] the day in which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has delivered Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)] into youi hand: is not the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) gone out before youi? So Barak [Lightning] went down from mount Tavor [Mound], and ten thousand men after him.
15And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) scattered (defeated in battle) Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)], and all [his] chariots, and all [his] host, with the edge of the sword before Barak [Lightning]; so that Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)] lighted down off [his] chariot, and fled away on his feet.
16But Barak [Lightning] pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto Haroshet-HaGoyim [Woodland of the Gentiles] of the Gentiles: and all the host of Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)] fell upon the edge of the sword; [and] there was not a man left.
17However Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)] fled away on his feet to the tent of Ya’el [Mountain Goat] the wife of Hever [Comrade] the Kayin [Possession]: for [there was] peace between Yavin [Whom God Observes] the king of Hatzor [Castle] and the house of Hever [Comrade] the Keini [Possession].
18And Ya’el [Mountain Goat] went out to meet Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)], and said unto him, Turn in, my lord, turn in to me; fear not. And when he had turned in unto her into the tent, she covered him with a Mantle (cloak; covering garment) (cloak).
19And he said unto her, Give me, I pray youi, a little water to drink; for I am thirsty. And she opened a bottle of milk, and gave him drink, and covered him.
20Again he said unto her, Stand in the door of the tent, and it shall be, when any man does come and enquire of youi, and say, Is there any man here? that youi shall say, No.
21Then Ya’el [Mountain Goat], Hever’s [Comrade]’s wife took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and struck the nail into his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died.
22And, behold, as Barak [Lightning] pursued Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)], Ya’el [Mountain Goat] came out to meet him, and said unto him, Come, and I will show youi the man whom youi seek. And when he came into her [tent], behold, Sisra [Battle Array (to put on; to clothe)] lay dead, and the nail [was] in his temples.
23So God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] subdued on that day Yavin [Whom God Observes] the king of Kena’an [Merchant] before the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
24And the hand of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] prospered, and prevailed against Yavin [Whom God Observes] the king of Kena’an [Merchant], until they had destroyed Yavin [Whom God Observes] king of Kena’an [Merchant].
