Judges 6:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

31a So shall all Thine enemies perish, O Jehovah!

But let those who love Him be like the rising of the sun in its strength.

This forms the conclusion of the song. כּן, so, refers to the whole of the song: just in the same manner as Sisera and his warriors. The rising of the sun in its strength is a striking image of the exaltation of Israel to a more and more glorious unfolding of its destiny, which Deborah anticipated as the result of this victory. With the last clause, "And the land had rest forty years" (cf. Judges 3:11, Judges 3:30; Judges 8:28), the account of this event is brought to a close.
