Judg.5.24 - 27. Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent. He asked water, and she gave him milk; she brought forth butter in a lordly dish. She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples. At her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay down: at her feet he bowed, he fell: where he bowed, there he fell down dead.
Each for Equal You can't join the army Women don't go to war
Each for Equal Just remain at home She was told!
Each for Equal You can't carry gun Women can't shoot
Each for Equal You can't be the chief of army staff Women are weaklings
Each for Equal Lies upon lies She was told
Each for Equal Endowed with differs capacity The creativity in her yearns for expression
Each for Equal From her home She built her muscles
Each for Equal Trained her finger to war Learned to leap over the wall
Each for equal 10,000 plus one soldier In pursuit of the general
Each for Equal Destiny beckoned on her You can do all things
Each for Equal Yes I can, I can, I can She told herself
Each for Equal She took the peg She lifted the harmer
Each for Equal She put her hand to the nail, Her right hand to the workmen's hammer
Each for Equal She smote the chief of army staff She smote off his head
Each for Equal With tent peg she pierced.. She stricken through his temples.
Each for Equal At her feet he bowed, At her feet he fell, down dead
Each for Equal Jael the wife of Heber The tent warrior Killed the national warrior!
Happy International women's day.
