The Noise Of The Archers

"They that are delivered from the noise of archers in the places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the LORD, even the righteous acts toward the inhabitants of his villages in Israel: then shall the people of the LORD go down to the gates." - Judges 5:11 KJV

This passage is from Debra's song... She was a judge in Israel... A person raised up during the time when an oppressor had Israel under it's thumb... this is her victory song.

... the noise of the archers... it could also be translated the voice of the divider... the sound of an arrow as it passed you was a terrifying sound... a common tactic of bandits was to fire arrows just past a group of people so that they would drop what they were carrying and run for shelter then the bandits would take what ever they could with little or no loss of life.

In an age without telephones the places of drawing water were places were you met your neighbors and shared information as you got your provision for the day.

Have we been delivered from the 'noise of the archers' or have we been forced away from our places of drawing water?

Those who have been delivered from fear have something to say about God's righteous acts. The have liberty and access.
