Judges 4
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the children of Israel continued again to do evil before LORD JEHOVAH, and Ahor died 2And LORD JEHOVAH delivered them into the hand of Nabin, King of Canaan, who reigned in Khatsur, and the General of his army was Sisra, and he was dwelling in Kharsheth of the Gentiles 3And the children of Israel cried out to LORD JEHOVAH, because he had nine hundred chariots of iron, and he was subjecting the children of Israel by force for twenty years

4And the woman Debora, the Prophetess wife of Lapithor, also was judging Israel at that time 5And Debora was living under a palm tree between Ramtha and Bayth Eil on Mount Aphreim and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment 6And she sent and she called Baraq, son of Abinam, from Raqem of Naphtali, and she said to him: “Has not LORD JEHOVAH God of Israel commanded you: ‘You shall go and you shall dwell in the Mountain of Tabor and you shall take with you ten thousand men from the sons of Naphtali and from the sons of Zabulun 7And they shall come with you to the valley of Qishon against Sisra the General of the army of Nabin and against his chariots and against his army and I shall deliver him into your hands?’” 8Baraq said to her: “If you go with me, I go, and if you do not with me, I am not going” 9She said to him: “Certainly I am going with you, however, Baraq, you shall not boast on the road that you are traveling, because LORD JEHOVAH shall deliver Sisra into the hands of a woman.” And Debora arose and she went with Baraq to Raqem 10And Baraq gathered Zebulun and Naphtali to Raqem and ten thousand men came up with him, also Debora went up with him

11And Khuber Qainan went out from Qain of the sons of Khubab, father in law of Moshe, and he pitched his tent at the oak which is in Tsainin, that is on the side of Raqem

12And they showed Sisra that Baraq son of Abinam went up to the mountain of Tabor 13And Sisra gathered all his chariots, nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people that were with him from Kharshath of the Gentiles and unto the River of Qishon 14And Debora said to Baraq: “Arise, because this is the day that LORD JEHOVAH shall deliver Sisra into your hands. Behold LORD JEHOVAH has gone out before you.” And Baraq came down from Mountain of Tabor and ten thousand men with him 15And LORD JEHOVAH defeated Sisra and all these his chariots and all his host by the mouth of the sword before Baraq, and Sisra came down from his chariot and fled on his feet 16And Baraq chased after his chariot and after his host unto Kharshath of the Gentiles, and all the host of Sisra fell by the mouth of the sword, and not a man escaped alive

17And Sisra fled on foot and entered the tent of Anayl, the wife of Khubar the Qinite, because there was peace between Nabin King of Khatsur and Khubar the Qinite 18And Anayl came out to meet Sisra and she said to him: “Turn aside my Lord! Turn aside to me and do not be afraid!” And he turned aside to her in the tent and she covered him with a rug 19And he said to her, “Give me a little water to drink, for I am thirsty”, and she untied the skin of milk and she gave him a drink and she covered him up 20And he said to her: “Stand in the door of the tent, and if a man comes asking you and says, ‘Is there a man here?’, say to him, ‘There is not.’ 21And Anayl the wife of Khubar took a peg of the tent and she seized a mallet in her hand and she went into him when he slept and she knocked the peg into his temples and it sank into the ground as he slept and he was shattered and he died 22And behold Baraq was chasing after Sisra and Anayl came out to meet him and she said to him: “Come, I shall show you the man whom you seek”, and he went into him and he saw and behold, Sisra lay and was dead and a peg in his temples

23And LORD JEHOVAH in that day defeated Nabin, King of Canaan, before the sons of Israel 24And the hand of the children of Israel was going and strong against Nabin, King of Canaan, until they killed Nabin, King of Canaan
