Judges 5:26

Context

5:26 Her left 1  hand reached for the tent peg,

her right hand for the workmen’s hammer.

She “hammered” 2  Sisera,

she shattered his skull, 3 

she smashed his head, 4 

she drove the tent peg through his temple. 5 

Judges 5:31

Context

5:31 May all your enemies perish like this, O Lord!

But may those who love you shine

like the rising sun at its brightest!” 6 

And the land had rest for forty years.

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

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

3 tn Or “head.”

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

5 tn Heb “she pierced his temple.”

6 tn Heb “But may those who love him be like the going forth of the sun in its strength.”
