11 At the sound of those dividing[a] the sheep
        among the watering places,
    there they will recount the righteous deeds of Yahweh,
    the righteous deeds for his warriors[b] in Israel.
Then the people of Yahweh went down to the gates.
12 “Wake up, wake up, Deborah!
    Wake up, wake up, sing a song!
Get up, Barak!
    Take captive your captives, O son of Abinoam.
13 Then the remnant went down to the nobles;
    the people of Yahweh went down for him[c] against the mighty.
