Dear forum members,

Yahweh, when you set out from Seir,
as you trod the land of Edom,
earth shook, the heavens quaked,
the clouds dissolved into water.
The mountains melted before Yahweh,
before Yahweh, the god of Israel. (Judg 5:4-5)

I am interested in what opinions people hold as to the identity of the event described in this text from the Song of Deborah and also in whatever other information may be gleaned from this passage.

Thank you for your comments.
