Comments for the name Jael

Comments for JAEL:

The general that Jael killed was from the Assyrian army, not the Caananite.

I don't think so. Judges 4, 2 specifically says that Sesira (whom Jael killed eventually) was the commander of Canaanite king Jabin's army. No mention of Assyria as far as I can tell.

The name, depending on the Hebrew spelling, is derived from the Hebrew Yah/Jah "God" and El "Lord" meaning "God is Lord".
