1. Exposition

What makes this song a source of continual fascination?

Judges 5:1 (ESV)

1 Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day:

It is a song of triumph that ranks among the masterpieces of world literature. It has been a source of perpetual fascination because of its pure simplicity, its extremely vivid imagery, its powerful yet subtle expression, and its high emotion and blazing enthusiasm. The whole of this poem is life and movement, and Deborah poured her entire soul into writing it.1
