mount Tabor

Judges 4:6
And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the LORD God of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?

Joshua 19:12,34
And turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrising unto the border of Chislothtabor, and then goeth out to Daberath, and goeth up to Japhia, …

Psalm 89:12
The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.









(12) They shewed Sisera.--The previous verse has been introduced by way of anticipation, that the reader--who has last heard of the Kenites in the south of Judah (Judges 1:16)--may not be surprised at Judges 4:17 to find them in Naphtali. It is not, therefore, necessary to suppose that the "they" means the Kenites. It may be an impersonal expression (as it is rendered in the LXX. and Vulg. "it was told").
