1 In that day Debbora and Barac son of Abinoem sung, and said: 2 O you of Israel, that have willingly offered your lives to danger, bless the Lord. 3 Hear, O ye kings, give ear, ye princes: It is I, it is I, that will sing to the Lord, I will sing to the Lord the God of Israel. 4 O Lord, when thou wentest out of Seir, and passedst by the regions of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens dropped water. 5 The mountains melted before the face of the Lord, and Sinai before the face of the Lord the God of Israel.
6 In the days of Samgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jahel the paths rested: and they that went by them, walked through by-ways. 7 The valiant men ceased, and rested in Israel: until Debbora arose, a mother arose in Israel. 8 The Lord chose new wars, and he himself overthrew the gates of the enemies: a shield and spear was not seen among forty thousand of Israel. 9 My heart loveth the princes of Israel: O you that of your own good will offered yourselves to danger, bless the Lord. 10 Speak, you that ride upon fair asses, and you that sit in judgment, and walk in the way.
6 "The paths rested"... The ways to the sanctuary of God were unfrequented: and men walked in the by-ways of error and sin.
