    Wesley's Notes on Judges 5:12

    5:12 Awake - Stir up thyself and all that is within thee, to admire and praise the Lord. This work needs and well deserves the utmost liveliness and vigour of soul. Lead captivity captive - How could this be done, when there was none of them left? chap.4:16. None were left to make head against them. None is often put for few, and those few might be taken after the battle, and carried captive, and led in triumph.
