shows Barak Sisera dead.
fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the wife of Heber
the Kenite: for there was peace between Jabin the king
of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite. And Jael
went out to meet Sisera, and said unto him, Turn in, my lord,
turn in to me; fear not. And when he had turned in unto
her into the tent, she covered him with a mantle. And
he said unto her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water to
drink; for I am thirsty. And she opened a bottle of
milk, and gave him drink, and covered him. Again in
the door of the tent, and it shall be, when any man doth come
and enquire of thee, and say, Is there any man here? that
thou shalt say, No. Then Jael Heber's wife took a nail
of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly
unto him, and smote the nail into his temples, and fastened
it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary.
So he died. And, behold, as Barak pursued Sisera, Jael
came out to meet him, and said unto him, Come, and I will
shew thee the man whom thou seekest. And when he came into
her tent, behold, Sisera lay dead, and the nail was
in his temples. (KJV)
