Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

49:21 Naphtali is a hind let loose - Those of this tribe were, as the loosen'd hind, zealous for their liberty, and yet affable and courteous, their language refined, and they complaisant, giving goodly words.

Her passion causes her to burst out into the praise of some of the excellencies
