Judges 5:1
Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day, saying,









(7) Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth.--Better, danceth for joy, as in the Prayer Book. Another possible translation is, "And when I have been helped my heart will dance for joy."

With my song.--Literally, from my song, but the reading is doubtful. The LXX. have "my flesh has flourished," which is probably correct.

Verse 7. - The Lord is my Strength and my Shield (see Psalm 18:1, 2; Psalm 119:114). My heart trusted in him, and I am helped. As far as feeling goes, David is already "helped." He feels himself delivered out of his peril. Therefore, he says, my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song - literally, out of my song, which is explained to mean "out of my store of song" - will I praise him. He is ready to offer thanksgiving for a mercy not yet received.
