Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 5:11-14

_ _ The wells which are at a little distance from towns in the East, are, in unsettled times, places of danger. But in peace they are scenes of pleasant and joyous resort. The poetess anticipates that this song may be sung, and the righteous acts of the Lord rehearsed at these now tranquil “places of drawing water.” Deborah now rouses herself to describe, in terms suitable to the occasion, the preparation and the contest, and calls in a flight of poetic enthusiasm on Barak to parade his prisoners in triumphal procession. Then follows a eulogistic enumeration of the tribes which raised the commanded levy, or volunteered their services — the soldiers of Ephraim who dwelt near the mount of the Amalekites, the small quota of Benjamin; “the governors,” valiant leaders “out of Machir,” the western Manasseh; out of Zebulun.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 5:6-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 5:11

From the noise — From the triumphant noise and shout of archers, rejoicing when they meet with their prey. Of drawing water — At those pits or springs of water, which were precious in those hot countries, to which the people's necessities forced them to resort, and nigh unto which the archers usually lurked, that they may shoot at them, and kill and spoil them. There — When they come to those places with freedom and safety, which before they could not, they shall with thankfulness rehearse this righteous and gracious work of God, in rescuing his people. Of the villages — Whom she mentions, because as their danger was greater, Judges 5:7, so was their deliverance. Gates — Of their cities, which were the chief places to which both city and country resorted for public business and matters of justice, from which they they had been debarred by their oppressors; but now they had free access and passage, either in or out of the gates, as their occasions required; and they who had been driven from their cities, now returned to them in peace and triumph; so the citizens deliverance is celebrated here, as the country — mens is in the foregoing words.
