Between her legs he kneeled


judge 4-5

28 Through the window she looked out;
yea, she cried out, the mother of Sisera, through the lattice:
Why is his chariot so slow to return?
Why are the hoofbeats of his chariots delayed?

29 The wisest of her princesses answered her;
yea, she returned her words to herself:
30 Are they not finding, dividing the spoil?
A womb, or two, to each man's head;
spoil of dyed pieces to Sisera,
spoil of a dyed embroidered piece, or two, for the neck as spoil?

Between her legs he kneeled, fell, lay
between her legs he kneeled and fell
where he kneeled, he fell, destroyed.

Jael says to him, "'Come, I will make you see the man whom you seek,' and he came to her, and look, Sisera, fallen dead, with the tent peg in his temple (4:22)."
