Bible Commentary for Judges 5:20

Wesley's Notes for Judges 5:20


5:20 From heaven - Or, they from heaven, or the heavenly host fought, by thunder, and lightning, and hail - stones, possibly mingled with fire. The stars - Raising these storms by their influences, which they do naturally. Courses - Or, from their paths, or stations. As soldiers fight in their ranks and places assigned them, so did these.


Discussion for Judges 5:20

  • Wayne Wilson on Judges 5:20
    I believe the literal translation as in most the commentaries and the author's viewpoint. I Also think there is a latter time fulfillment of the stars/planets and their movement judging the wicked on earth to help deliver the saints. God is so sovereign I believe, that he foreordained this cataclysmic, intergalactic event to happen right on time. Those that are in the arc of Christ will not be affected :)
