John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 5:31

So let — That is, so suddenly, so surely, so effectual and irrecoverably. Deborah was a prophetess and this prayer was a prediction, that in due time all God's enemies shall perish. In his might — When he first riseth, and so goeth on in his course, which he doth with great might, even as a strong man that runneth a race, and so as no creature can stop, or hinder him; even so irresistible let thy people be. Such shall be the honour and such the joy of all that love God in sincerity, and they shall shine for ever as the sun in the kingdom of their father.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Judges 5:31

So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but [let] them that love him [be] as the (x) sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years.

(x) Shall grow daily more and more in God's favour.
