Wesley's Notes for Judges 5:3


5:3 The princes - You especially that live near, and have evil designs against Israel, know this for your caution, and terror too, if you presume to molest them. God of Israel - Who, as you see by this plain instance, is both able and resolved to defend them from all their enemies.

    Remember the only way to heaven is through the son Jesus Christ. REPENT of your sins and ask him to lead your life and he will. Make sure you REPENT of all sins you commit from this moment on. Once Saved Always Saved is a lie. God Loves you all. Please follow his words

    Norman, the Scripture means exactly what it says Zebulun and Naphtali were the only tribes of Israel to go up to war against GOD's enemies. The other tribes for one reason or the other didn't show up for the Lord to use them and were cursed in the end for their sin of omittion. What a pity? Glory be to God in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! Amen.
