Quick Fire Facts about Deborah

I put together a little list of quick facts about Deborah, the prophetess featured in The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy. There wasn't too much that I could find about her.

• She was a prophetess and Judge of the Old Testament
• She accompanied commander of the army, Barak, into battle
• Her story is told in the chapters 4 & 5 of the Book of Judges
• Chapter 5 – The Song of Deborah – is a poem
• She was married to Lappidoth
• She offered judgment to settle disputes while sitting under a Palm tree

Here is a link to the Book of Judges chapter 5 if you would like to read the poetic Song of Deborah.

Look for my review of The Triumph of Deborah and a short interview with the author to come this weekend!

  1. You are so becoming the expert for historical women of those times! Thanks for this info:)

  2. The book sounds interesting. I've always been interested in the story of Deborah since she's one of the few women in the Old Testament that has good things written about her!

  3. I am looking forward to reading more biblical fiction, Girl Mary was my first. I have a couple waiting for me. I look forward to your review to see if I should add this to my shelves as well =)


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
