1 Once Ehud was dead, the Israelites again began doing what is evil in Yahweh's eyes,
Jer 5:3 Judg 2:11 Judg 2:19-20 Judg 3:7 Judg 3:12 Judg 6:1 Judg 10:6
2 and Yahweh handed them over to Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned at Hazor. The commander of his army was Sisera, who lived in Haroshet-ha-Goiim.
Josh 11:1 Judg 4:13 Judg 4:16 1Sam 12:9 Ps 83:9 Isa 50:1 Josh 11:10-11

5 She used to sit under Deborah's Palm between Ramah and Bethel in the highlands of Ephraim, and the Israelites would come to her for justice.
Gen 35:8 1Sam 1:1 1Sam 1:19 1Sam 6:16-17 Deut 17:8-12 Exod 18:13 Exod 18:16
6 She sent for Barak son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali, and said to him, 'Has not Yahweh, God of Israel, commanded, "Go! March to Mount Tabor and with you take ten thousand of the sons of Naphtali and the sons of Zebulun.
Heb 11:32 Acts 13:47 Josh 19:37 Judg 8:18 1Sam 10:3 Hos 5:1 Isa 13:2-5
7 I shall entice Sisera, the commander of Jabin's army, to encounter you at the Torrent of Kishon with his chariots and troops; and I shall put him into your power"? '
1Kgs 18:40 Judg 5:21 1Sam 24:10 1Sam 24:18 Exod 14:4 Exod 21:13 Ezek 38:10-16
8 Barak replied, 'If you come with me, I shall go; if you will not come, I shall not go, for I do not know how to choose the day when the angel of Yahweh will grant me success.'
Exod 4:10-14 Matt 14:30-31
9 'I shall go with you then,' she said, 'but, the way you are going about it, the glory will not be yours; for Yahweh will deliver Sisera into the hands of a woman.' Deborah then stood up and went with Barak to Kedesh.
Judg 2:14 1Sam 2:30 2Chr 26:18 2Sam 20:21-22 Judg 4:17-22 Judg 5:24-27 Judg 9:54
10 Barak summoned Zebulun and Naphtali. Ten thousand men marched behind him, and Deborah went with him.
Judg 5:18 Judg 5:15 1Kgs 20:11 1Sam 25:27 Exod 11:8 Judg 4:6 Judg 4:14
11 Heber the Kenite had parted company with the tribe of Kain and with the sons of Hobab, father-in-law of Moses; he had pitched his tent near the Oak of Zaanannim, not far from Kedesh.
Josh 19:33 Judg 1:16 Num 10:29 Josh 19:37 Exod 3:1 Exod 2:18 Exod 18:1
12 Sisera was informed that Barak son of Abinoam had encamped on Mount Tabor.
Jer 46:18 Josh 19:12 Josh 19:34 Judg 4:6 Ps 89:12
13 Sisera summoned all his chariots -- nine hundred iron chariots -- and all the troops he had, from Harosheth-ha-Goiim to the Torrent of Kishon.
Judg 4:2-3 Judg 4:7
14 Deborah said to Barak, 'Up! For today is the day when Yahweh has put Sisera into your power. Is not Yahweh marching at your head?' And Barak charged down from Mount Tabor with ten thousand men behind him.
2Sam 5:24 Deut 9:3 Isa 52:12 1Sam 9:26 Gen 19:14 Gen 44:4 Josh 7:13
15 At Barak's advance, Yahweh struck terror into Sisera, all his chariots and his entire army. Sisera leapt down from his chariot and fled on foot.
Josh 10:10 Ps 83:9-10 2Chr 13:15-17 2Kgs 7:6 Heb 11:32 Judg 5:20-21
16 Barak pursued the chariots and the army as far as Harosheth-ha-Goiim. Sisera's whole army fell by the edge of the sword; not one man was spared.
Isa 43:17 Jas 2:13 Josh 10:19-20 Josh 11:8 Lev 26:7-8 Ps 83:9 Ps 104:35
17 Sisera meanwhile fled on foot towards the tent of Jael, the wife of Heber the Kenite. For there was peace between Jabin king of Hazor and the family of Heber the Kenite.
Amos 5:19-20 Isa 57:21 Job 12:19-21 Job 18:7-12 Job 40:11-12 Judg 5:6 Judg 5:24
18 Jael came out to meet Sisera and said to him, 'Stay here, my lord, with me; do not be afraid!' He stayed with her in her tent, and she covered him with a rug.
19 He said to her, 'Please give me a little water to drink, for I am thirsty.' She opened the skin of milk, gave him some to drink and covered him up again.
Judg 5:25-26 1Kgs 17:10 Gen 24:43 Isa 41:17 John 4:7
20 Then he said to her, 'Stand at the tent door, and if anyone comes and questions you -- if he asks, "Is there a man here?" say, "No." '
2Sam 17:20 Josh 2:3-5
21 But Jael the wife of Heber took a tent-peg and picked up a mallet; she crept up softly to him and drove the peg into his temple right through to the ground. He was lying fast asleep, worn out; and so he died.
1Cor 1:19 1Cor 1:27 1Sam 17:43 1Sam 17:49-50 Judg 3:21 Judg 3:31 Judg 5:26-27
22 And now Barak came up in pursuit of Sisera. Jael went out to meet him and said, 'Come in, and I will show you the man you are looking for.' He went into her tent; and there was Sisera dead, with the tent-peg through his temple.
2Sam 17:3 2Sam 17:10-15
23 Thus God that day humbled Jabin king of Canaan before the Israelites.
Neh 9:24 Ps 18:47 1Chr 22:18 1Cor 15:28 Heb 11:33 Ps 18:39 Ps 47:3
24 And the Israelites bore down more and more heavily on that king of Canaan, Jabin, until he was utterly destroyed.
