Judges 5:25-26

Context

5:25 He asked for water,

and she gave him milk;

in a bowl fit for a king, 1 

she served him curds.

5:26 Her left 2  hand reached for the tent peg,

her right hand for the workmen’s hammer.

She “hammered” 3  Sisera,

she shattered his skull, 4 

she smashed his head, 5 

she drove the tent peg through his temple. 6 

1 tn Or “for mighty ones.”

2 tn The adjective “left” is interpretive, based on the context. Note that the next line pictures Jael holding the hammer with her right hand.

3 tn The verb used here is from the same root as the noun “hammer” in the preceding line.

4 tn Or “head.”

5 tn The phrase “his head” (an implied direct object) is supplied in the translation for clarification.

6 tn Heb “she pierced his temple.”
