1 Dengang sang Debora og Barak Abinoams sønn, denne sang:

2 Lov Herren, fordi fyrstene i Israel gikk først i striden fordi folket møtte villig frem!

3 Hør, I konger! Lytt til, I høvdinger! Jeg - jeg vil synge om Herren; jeg vil lovsynge Herren, Israels Gud.

4 Herre, da du gikk ut fra Se'ir, da du skred frem fra Edoms mark, da bevet jorden, himlene dryppet, skyene dryppet av vann.

5 Fjellene skalv for Herrens åsyn, Sinai der borte skalv for Herrens, Israels Guds åsyn.

6 I Samgars, Anats sønns dager, i Jaels dager var stiene øde, de veifarende gikk på krokete stier.

7 Det fantes ingen fører i Israel, nei, ingen før jeg, Debora, stod frem, før jeg stod frem, en mor i Israel.

8 De valgte nye guder, da var der kamp ved portene; ei såes skjold, ei heller spyd blandt firti tusen i Israel.

9 Mitt hjerte slår for Israels høvdinger og for dem som villig møtte frem blandt folket. Pris Herren!

10 Syng, I som rider på lyse aseninner, I som sitter på eders tepper, og I som vandrer på veien!

11 Bueskytternes røst lyder ved brønnene; der priser de Herrens rettferdige verk, hans styrelses rettferdige verk i Israel. Dengang steg de ned til portene, Herrens folk.

12 Våkn op, våkn op, Debora, våkn op, våkn op, stem i en sang! Stå op, Barak, og før dine fanger i fangenskap, du Abinoams sønn!

13 Dengang lød det: Stig ned, du lille flokk, stig ned til heltene, du folk! Herre, stig ned og strid for mig blandt kjempene!

14 Av Efra'im steg de ned, de som har sin rot på Amaleks fjell; efter dig kom Benjamin blandt dine folk; av Makir steg høvdinger ned, og av Sebulon de som drar frem med hærførerstav,

15 og fyrster i Issakar med Debora, og som Issakar, så Barak; i dalen styrter de avsted i hans følge. Ved ubens bekker holdtes store rådslagninger.

16 Hvorfor blev du sittende mellem fehegnene og hørte på hyrdefløitene? Ved ubens bekker holdtes store rådslagninger.

17 Gilead - hinsides Jordan blev han i ro, og Dan - hvorfor dvelte han ved skibene? Aser blev sittende ved havets bredd, og ved sine bukter blev han i ro.

18 Sebulon er et folk som ringeakter sitt liv inntil døden, likeså Naftali på sine fjell.

19 Konger kom, de stred, dengang stred Kana'ans Konger ved Ta'anak, ved Megiddos vann; hærfang av sølv fikk de ikke.

20 Fra himmelen stred de, stjernene fra sine baner, de stred mot Sisera.

21 Kisons bekk rev dem bort, den eldgamle bekk, Kisons bekk. Skrid frem, min sjel, med kraft!

22 Da trampet hestenes hover under kjempenes jagende, jagende fart.

23 Forbann Meros, sa Herrens engel, forbann, forbann dets folk, fordi de ikke kom Herren til hjelp, Herren til hjelp blandt kjempene.

24 Priset fremfor kvinner være Jael, kenitten Hebers hustru! Fremfor kvinner i telt være hun priset!

25 Vann bad han om, melk gav hun ham; i prektig skål bar hun frem fløte.

26 Sin hånd rekker hun ut efter teltpluggen og sin høire hånd efter arbeidshammeren; hun slår Sisera med hammeren, knuser hans hode, sønderslår og gjennemborer hans tinning.

27 For hennes føtter seg han ned, falt han, lå han; for hennes føtter seg han ned, falt han; der han seg ned, der lå han fellet.

28 Gjennem vinduet skuer hun og roper, Siseras mor, ut gjennem gitteret: Hvorfor venter hans vogn med å komme? Hvorfor dveler hans traveres skritt?

29 De klokeste av hennes fruer svarer henne, og selv gir hun sig svar på sine ord:

30 Til visse finner de hærfang og skifter: En kvinne, to kvinner til manns, hærfang av farvede klær for Sisera, hærfang av farvede klær, utsydde klær, én farvet klædning, to utsydde halsduker for hver av de hærtatte kvinner!

31 Måtte alle dine fiender omkomme således, Herre, og de som elsker ham, være som solen når den går frem i sin kraft! - Og landet hadde ro i firti år.

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.
