You'll still have to let it charge for a bit even with jumper cables. Let it sit while on the booster cables for about 5-10 minutes and it should be ok. I would either buy a tender or a new battery at this point.

Starter takes amps and your battery needs to be charged. Charge the battery ten amps for an hour and then try. If the cabe
les are good quality then you may get away with a 10 min charge then try it. If you got a buddy you can put a small charge in it and push start it.
