"Deborah Followed God’s Plan"

Deborah Followed God’s Plan

The Israelite people did not obey God, so God let the Canaanites (KAY nuhn ights) rule over the Israelites for 20 years. The Canaanites’ king treated the Israelites badly. The Israelite people prayed to God for help.

A woman named Deborah was a judge in Israel. She sat under a palm tree and helped people solve their problems. God told Deborah that a man named Barak (BAY rak) should fight against the king’s army. God would help the Israelites win. Deborah sent for Barak and told him, “You are to take 10,000 men and defeat the king’s army. God has commanded you to do this.”

Barak did not want to go unless Deborah went with him. She agreed to go with Barak. Deborah went up a mountain with Barak and an army of 10,000 men. The king’s army came. Deborah told Barak to go, and Barak led his men down the mountain. God helped the Israelites to win the battle.
