Judges 4:4-5

Context

4:4 Now Deborah, a prophetess, 1  wife of Lappidoth, was 2  leading 3  Israel at that time. 4:5 She would sit 4  under the Date Palm Tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel 5  in the Ephraimite hill country. The Israelites would come up to her to have their disputes settled. 6 

1 tn Heb “ a woman, a prophetess.” In Hebrew idiom the generic “woman” sometimes precedes the more specific designation. See GKC 437-38 §135.b.

2 tn Heb “she was.” The pronoun refers back to the nominative absolute “Deborah.” Hebrew style sometimes employs such resumptive pronouns when lengthy qualifiers separate the subject from the verb.

3 tn Or “judging.”

4 tn That is, “consider legal disputes.”

5 map For location see Map4 G4; Map5 C1; Map6 E3; Map7 D1; Map8 G3.

6 tn Heb “for judgment.”
