Now, Sisera, had fled on foot, unto the tent of Jael, wife of Heber the Kenite, for there was peace between Jabin, king of Hazer, and the house of Heber the Kenite.
In the days of Shamgar son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the roads were forsaken, - and, the frequenters of highways, betook them to roundabout paths:
Blessed above women, shall be Jael, wife of Heber the Kenite, - Above women in the tent, be blessed:
Who leadeth away priests as a spoil, and, men firmly seated, He overturneth:
The steppings of his strength are hemmed in, and his own counsel casteth him down;
Pour out thy transports of anger, and look on every one who is high, and lay him low;
I have seen a lawless man, a tyrant, and spreading himself out, like a cedar in Lebanon;
Let their table, before them, become a snare, And unto their friends, a lure;
The loftiness of a man, layeth him low, - but, one of a lowly spirit, shall attain unto honour.
No well-being, saith my God, to the lawless!
As if a man should flee from the face of a lion, and there should meet him - a bear! or he should have entered the house, and leaned his hand upon the wall, and there should bite him - a serpent!
