And Yahweh threw Sisera and all his chariots and all his army into a panic with the mouth of the sword before Barak. And Sisera got down from his chariot and fled away on foot. Bible

“into a panic.” This is what Yahweh did to the Egyptians; the Hebrew uses the same word for panic (Exod. 14:24-25).

“army.” Same word as in Exod. 14:24 with the Egyptian army.

“the mouth of the sword.” Used to show great destruction, as if the sword was eating its victims (see commentary on Josh. 6:21).

“got down from.” The chariots were supposed to give the Canaanites an advantage, but with God’s intervention, they became a liability.


Commentary for: Judges 4:15
