(2) For the avenging of Israel.--The Hebrew word peraoth cannot have this meaning, though it is found in the Syriac and implied by the Chaldee. The word only occurs in Deuteronomy 32:42, and there, as here, implies the notion of leading; so that the LXX. are doubtless right in rendering it, "In the leading of the leaders of Israel." God is praised because both leaders and people (Judges 5:9; Judges 5:13) did their duty. Peraoth is derived from perang, "hair"; and whether the notion which it involves is that of comati, "nobles, who wear long hair" (comp. Homer's "long-haired Greeks," and Tennyson's "his beard a yard before him, and his hair a yard behind "), or "hairy champions," or the hair of warriors streaming behind them as they rode to battle ("His beard and hoary hair streamed like a meteor to the troubled air": Gray), leadership seems to be the notion involved.

When the people willingly offered themselves.--Comp. Psalm 110:3 : "Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power."

Verse 2. - Her first feeling was one of patriotic joy that her countrymen had been roused to the venture of war, and of gratitude to God that it was so. "For the bold leading of the leaders of Israel, for the willing following of the people, praise ye the Lord. 5:1-5. No time should be lost in returning thanks to the Lord for his mercies; for our praises are most acceptable, pleasant, and profitable, when they flow from a full heart. By this, love and gratitude would be more excited and more deeply fixed in the hearts of believers; the events would be more known and longer remembered. Whatever Deborah, Barak, or the army had done, the Lord must have all the praise. The will, the power, and the success were all from Him.
