Heroes of the Bible: Deborah
Friday, August 13, 2021

Name means: “queen bee”

AKA: Warrior woman

Startling fact: A prophetess became one of Israel’s judges.

Did you know? The general of Israel’s army was hesitant to go into battle against the enemy army led by their general Sisera, unless Deborah accompanied him into battle. The general said, “If you won’t go with me, I won’t go.”

To which Deborah replied, “I’ll go, but the battle won’t give you honor. The Lord will defeat Sisera through the hand of a woman [Jael].” (Read Judges 4:8–9.)

Coolest trait: Fearlessness in the face of battle.

You can too: Trust in God to deliver you when times are rough.
