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.

    The kings - you mighty rulers planning to launch attack against the people of Israel of GOD. The LORD GOD OF Israel is mightier than you and will protect them through their praises and petitions to him.
