Betaed by: devohoneybeeNotes: Written for in_the_beginning . The English translation of the Song of Deborah (Judges Chapter 5) is taken from the NRSV translation. The Song of Miriam (Exodus 15:2-21, and I am using the scholarly theory that the whole thing originally belonged to Miriam and not just the last verse) is taken from Everett Fox’s translation The Five Books of Moses. The word of God is always a direct quote. Verses quoted in order are: Judges 5:3, Exodus 15:2, Judges 5:11, Exodus 15:21, Exodus 15:7, Judges 4:6-7, Judges 5:12, and Exodus 15:13. The Hebrew text is taken from the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia; all errors are mine.
