1 Ja Deboora ning Baarak, Abinoami poeg, laulsid tol korral nõnda:

2 'Et lakad lehvisid Iisraelis, et rahvas oli võitlusvalmis, selle eest kiitke Issandat!

3 Kuulge, kuningad, pange tähele, vürstid! Mina - ma laulan Issandale, mängin Issandale, Iisraeli Jumalale!

4 Issand, kui sa läksid välja Seirist, kui sa astusid esile Edomi väljadelt, siis värises maa, taevadki tilkusid, jah, pilved piserdasid vett.

5 Mäed kõikusid Issanda ees, see Siinai Issanda, Iisraeli Jumala ees.

6 Samgari, Anati poja päevil, Jaeli päevil, olid teed tühjad ja rändurid käisid kaudseid teid.

7 Iisraelis lakkasid olemast põldurid, lakkasid, kuni tõusin mina, Deboora, tõusin kui Iisraeli ema.

8 Kui uusi jumalaid valiti, siis oli sõda väravais. Kas nähti kilpi või piiki Iisraeli neljakümnel tuhandel?

9 Minu süda kuulub Iisraeli käsuandjaile, võitlusvalmitele rahva hulgas. Kiitke Issandat!

10 Võikudel emaeeslitel ratsutajad, vaipadel istujad ja teekäijad - laulge sellest!

11 Laulge hõiskehääli veeammutuspaikades, seal ülistatakse Issanda õiglust, tema põldurite õiget panust Iisraelis, siis kui Issanda rahvas läks alla väravaisse.

12 Virgu, virgu, Deboora! Virgu, virgu, laula laulu! Tõuse, Baarak, võta tagasi oma vangid, Abinoami poeg!

13 Tol korral läks jääk alla vägevate juurde, Issanda rahvas tuli kangelastena alla mu juurde.

14 Efraimist need, kes olid välja juurinud Amaleki, sinu järel Benjamin koos su hõimudega. Maakirist laskusid käsuandjad ja Sebulonist valitsuskepi kandjad.

15 Debooraga koos mu vürstid Issaskaris, ja nagu Issaskar, nõnda Baarak läkitati orgu tema kannul. Ruubeni rühmadel olid suured arupidamised.

16 Miks jäid istuma sadulakorvide vahele, kuulama karjaste vilesid? Ruubeni rühmadel olid suured arupidamised.

17 Gilead jäi paigale teisele poole Jordanit, ja Daan, miks ta teenis võõrastes laevades? Aaser istus mererannas ja jäi oma valgmate juurde.

18 Sebulon on rahvas, kes osutas surmapõlgust, nõndasamuti Naftali välja kõrgete paikade peal.

19 Kuningad tulid, sõdisid, tol korral sõdisid Kaanani Kuningad, Taanakis, Megiddo vee ääres, aga hõbedat nad saagiks ei saanud.

20 Taevast taplesid tähed, oma teedelt taplesid need Siisera vastu.

21 Kiisoni jõgi uhtus nad ära, muinasaja jõgi, Kiisoni jõgi. Astu, mu hing, väega!

22 Siis oli hobukapjade plaginat tema täkkude nelja ajades.

23 Needke Meeros, ütleb Issanda ingel, needke tõesti ta elanikud! Sest nad ei tulnud Issandale appi, Issandale appi kangelaste hulgas.

24 Õnnistatud olgu naiste hulgas Jael, keenlase Heberi naine, Õnnistatud naiste hulgas telkides!

25 Teine küsis vett, tema andis piima, ulatas kalli kausiga petipiima.

26 Ta sirutas käe vaia ja parema käe töömeeste vasara järele. Ta tagus Siiserat, lõhkus ta pea, purustas ja puuris läbi ta oimud.

27 Jaeli jalgade juures vajus Siisera kokku, langes, jäi lamama, Jaeli jalgade juures ta vajus, langes. Kus ta vajus, seal ta langes tapetuna.

28 Siisera ema vaatas aknast, kurtis läbi aknaava: Miks viibib ta vanker tulemast? Miks pole kuulda ta rakendite müra?

29 Tema targemad vürstinnad vastasid talle, ka ta ise andis enesele vastuse:

30 Eks nad leia, jaga saaki? Tüdruk, kaks tüdrukut mehe kohta, kirjusid kangaid saagiks Siiserale, saagiks kirjusid kangaid, kirjatud rätik, kaks rätti saagikssaadute kaeltel.

31 Nõnda hukkuvad kõik su vaenlased, Issand. Aga kes sind armastavad, need on otsekui päike, kui ta tõuseb oma võimuses.' Ja maal oli rahu nelikümmend aastat.

Exploring the Meaning of Judges 5      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Judges 5: The Song of Deborah.

This chapter is a song of victory, describing the events of Judges 4 in poetic and exuberant language. Throughout, there is a sense of exhorting the people to turn to the Lord and praise Him for the victory. Singing this kind of song was a customary way for Israel to rejoice after a major victory.

The spiritual meaning of singing has to do with our overall joy and affection for spiritual things: joy for what is true, for the Word, and for everything about the Lord. Affection is not merely knowing spiritual truths; it is our heart’s response to them, which goes far beyond words.

This is why the lyrics of sacred songs such as Judges Chapter 5 are very eloquent and passionate. They are not simply an account of what took place, but more an outburst of praise and gratitude in recounting the story. We experience the same inner ‘music’ when our heart feels a deep spiritual affection, and is stirred up with praise to the Lord. Just as Deborah and Barak sang after a battle, our songs of gratitude will generally be felt after the Lord delivers us from a period of temptation during regeneration (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 8265).

The song itself frequently acknowledges the Lord’s part in Israel’s victory:

In verse 4: “Lord, when you went out from Seir, when you marched from the field of Edom.”

In verse 11: “There they shall recount the righteous acts of the Lord for his villagers in Israel.”

And in verse 13: “Then the Lord came down for me against the mighty.”

These references serve to remind us that everything is the Lord’s doing. We must do what is good as though our actions make the difference, but we are to affirm that the Lord brings about all that is good. This acknowledgement allows us to act from free will, while still understanding the spiritual truth that all goodness comes from the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 9193).

This is emphasized through the song whenever Deborah praises her own actions, as well as those of Barak and Jael. For example:

In verse 7: “Village life ceased in Israel until I, Deborah, arose, a mother in Israel.”

In verse 12: “Awake, awake, Deborah! Awake, awake, sing a song! Arise, Barak, and lead your captives away, O son of Abinoam!”

And in verses 24-27, when Jael receives full praise for her actions.

Another theme in the song is a lament over those tribes which did not come to the aid of Israel, although only Issachar and Zebulun were called to battle. A town called Meroz is roundly cursed for failing to help. The name ‘Meroz’ comes from a verb meaning “to withdraw” or “to hide” (see Swedenborg’s work, Heaven and Hell 18). This lament reminds us that our intentions to serve the Lord and to fight our spiritual battles can be hindered by our own divided wills.
