Judges 4:21 is a passage from the Bible which Stephen Colbert calls one of his favorites. He often reads it to his children as a bedtime story. It is especially fun to tell on camping trips near the old abandoned summer camp on the lake.
The Story of Jael and SiseraEdit
Once upon a time, there was a general named Sisera, who was being pursued by the Israelites. He knocked upon a friendly-looking tent and a beautiful woman named Jael answered. "Please, may I have some water?" he said. "Of course," she answered. "You can have more than water, you can have milk." And the milk was so delicious that Sisera fell asleep, and while he was sleeping, Jael drove a tent spike through his skull so forcibly that it pinned him to the ground and he died.
