27 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.
Sisera was lying down when Jael killed him, of course. It would be impossible for Sisera to be standing up while killed in this manner.
The song in Judges 5 is simply stating that Sisera “bowed down” and “fell” at Jael’s feet. It does not say that he died before this; in fact, it says the opposite: “where he bowed, there he fell down dead.” Furthermore, this passage is a song sung by Deborah and Barak, and as such, can use metaphoric language, unlike a historical account.
