The people of Israel once again have been heading down the wrong path and disobeying their God
The Israelites have been punished by God and enslaved to an Israel king named Jabin for 20 years
God?! Why have you forbidden us and forgot about us Israelites?
I will only go if you come with me.
Deborahwould sit under a tree and Israelites would come to her for judgment after rebellion
Deborah went with Barak because he was too afraid to fight alone. Deborah insisted that God would lead them to victory.
This is a story about a judge named Deborah who would receive clear direction from God and always followed them. She had faith in God and always acted on it.
"Go this is the day the Lord has given Sisera into your hands. Has not the Lord gone ahead of you?"
Yay! We are free and have been guided by our Lord God.
A women named Deborah had gotten clear direction from God to find man named Barak and tell him that God wanted him to take a group of 10,000 men to Mount Tabor. At this place, God will help these people defeat Sisera. (commander of the Canaanite army)
Deborah meets with Barak and the armies assemble and even before the war begins, Israels vicotry has been declared.
Barak and his forces are victorious in deafeating Sisera, even though Sisera, the man himslef, has escaped.
Sisera was killed by Jael because he put a tent peg next to Sisera's head and hit it with a hammer. It went through his head and killed Sisera. The Israelites then live in peace for 40 years.
