Deborah accompanied Barak toward Kedesh of Naphtali; and, having assembled ten thousand men, they advanced to mount Tabor. Sisera, being informed of this movement, marched with nine hundred chariots of war, and encamped near the river Kishon.

Barak and Deborah composed a hymn of thanksgiving; and the land had peace forty years from A.M. 2719 to 2759, B.C. 1245.
