1 But after the death of Ehud, the sons of Israel resumed doing evil in the sight of the Lord.
2 And the Lord delivered them into the hands of Jabin, the king of Canaan, who reigned at Hazor. And he had a commander of his army named Sisera, but this man lived at Harosheth of the Gentiles.
3 And the sons of Israel cried out to the Lord. For he had nine hundred chariots with scythes, and he vehemently oppressed them for twenty years.
4 Now there was a prophetess, Deborah, the wife of Lappidoth, who judged the people in that time.
