1 En ce jour-là, Débora chanta ce cantique, avec Barak, fils d'Abinoam:

2 Des chefs se sont mis à la tête du peuple en Israël, Et le peuple s'est montré prêt à combattre: Bénissez-en l'Eternel!

3 Rois, écoutez! Princes, prêtez l'oreille! Je chanterai, oui, je chanterai à l'Eternel, Je chanterai à l'Eternel, le Dieu d'Israël.

4 O Eternel! quand tu sortis de Séir, Quand tu t'avanças des champs d'Edom, La terre trembla, et les cieux se fondirent Et les nuées se fondirent en eaux;

5 Les montagnes s'ébranlèrent devant l'Eternel, Ce Sinaï devant l'Eternel, le Dieu d'Israël.

6 Au temps de Schamgar, fils d'Anath, Au temps de Jaël, les routes étaient abandonnées, Et ceux qui voyageaient prenaient des chemins détournés.

7 Les chefs étaient sans force en Israël, sans force, Quand je me suis levée, moi, Débora, Quand je me suis levée comme une mère en Israël.

8 Il avait choisi de nouveaux dieux: Alors la guerre était aux portes; On ne voyait ni bouclier ni lance Chez quarante milliers en Israël.

9 Mon coeur est aux chefs d'Israël, A ceux du peuple qui se sont montrés prêts à combattre. Bénissez l'Eternel!

10 Vous qui montez de blanches ânesses, Vous qui avez pour sièges des tapis, Et vous qui marchez sur la route, chantez!

11 Que de leur voix les archers, du milieu des abreuvoirs, Célèbrent les bienfaits de l'Eternel, Les bienfaits de son conducteur en Israël! Alors le peuple de l'Eternel descendit aux portes.

12 Réveille-toi, réveille-toi, Débora! Réveille-toi, réveille-toi, dis un cantique! Lève-toi, Barak, et emmène tes captifs, fils d'Abinoam!

13 Alors un reste du peuple triompha des puissants, L'Eternel me donna la victoire sur les héros.

14 D'Ephraïm arrivèrent les habitants d'Amalek. A ta suite marcha Benjamin parmi ta troupe. De Makir vinrent des chefs, Et de Zabulon des commandants.

15 Les princes d'Issacar furent avec Débora, Et Issacar suivit Barak, Il fut envoyé sur ses pas dans la vallée. Près des ruisseaux de Ruben, Grandes furent les résolutions du coeur!

16 Pourquoi es-tu resté au milieu des étables A écouter le bêlement des troupeaux? Aux ruisseaux de Ruben, Grandes furent les délibérations du coeur!

17 Galaad au delà du Jourdain n'a pas quitté sa demeure. Pourquoi Dan s'est-il tenu sur les navires? Aser s'est assis sur le rivage de la mer, Et s'est reposé dans ses ports.

18 Zabulon est un peuple qui affronta la mort, Et Nephthali de même, Sur les hauteurs des champs.

19 Les rois vinrent, ils combattirent, Alors combattirent les rois de Canaan, A Thaanac, aux eaux de Meguiddo; Ils ne remportèrent nul butin, nul argent.

20 Des cieux on combattit, De leurs sentiers les étoiles combattirent contre Sisera.

21 Le torrent de Kison les a entraînés, Le torrent des anciens temps, le torrent de Kison. Mon âme, foule aux pieds les héros!

22 Alors les talons des chevaux retentirent, A la fuite, à la fuite précipitée de leurs guerriers.

23 Maudissez Méroz, dit l'ange de l'Eternel, Maudissez, maudissez ses habitants, Car ils ne vinrent pas au secours de l'Eternel, Au secours de l'Eternel, parmi les hommes vaillants.

24 Bénie soit entre les femmes Jaël, Femme de Héber, le Kénien! Bénie soit-elle entre les femmes qui habitent sous les tentes!

25 Il demanda de l'eau, elle a donné du lait, Dans la coupe d'honneur elle a présenté de la crème.

26 D'une main elle a saisi le pieu, Et de sa droite le marteau des travailleurs; Elle a frappé Sisera, lui a fendu la tête, Fracassé et transpercé la tempe.

27 Aux pieds de Jaël il s'est affaissé, il est tombé, il s'est couché; A ses pieds il s'est affaissé, il est tombé; Là où il s'est affaissé, là il est tombé sans vie.

28 Par la fenêtre, à travers le treillis, La mère de Sisera regarde, et s'écrie: Pourquoi son char tarde-t-il à venir? Pourquoi ses chars vont-ils si lentement?

29 Les plus sages d'entre ses femmes lui répondent, Et elle se répond à elle-même:

30 Ne trouvent-ils pas du butin? ne le partagent-ils pas? Une jeune fille, deux jeunes filles par homme, Du butin en vêtements de couleur pour Sisera, Du butin en vêtements de couleur, brodés, Un vêtement de couleur, deux vêtements brodés, Pour le cou du vainqueur.

31 Périssent ainsi tous tes ennemis, ô Eternel! Ceux qui l'aiment sont comme le soleil, Quand il paraît dans sa force. Le pays fut en repos pendant quarante ans.

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.
