God had raised up Othniel, Ehud, and Shamgar to deliver the people from their enemies (Judg. 3:7-31).But after the death of Ehud, the people fall again into apostasy and in the midst of this time of trouble God will once again bring out His people’s deliverance (Judg. 5:6-12).

Judges 4:4–7 (Listen)
4 Now Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lappidoth, was judging Israel at that time. 5 She used to sit under the palm of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the hill country of Ephraim, and the people of Israel came up to her for judgment. 6 She sent and summoned Barak the son of Abinoam from Kedesh-naphtali and said to him, “Has not the LORD, the God of Israel, commanded you, ‘Go, gather your men at Mount Tabor, taking 10,000 from the people of Naphtali and the people of Zebulun. 7 And I will draw out Sisera, the general of Jabin's army, to meet you by the river Kishon with his chariots and his troops, and I will give him into your hand’?”
