User comments for Jael (Meaning / History Only)

If you study Hebrew, or the bible - it's quite the compliment. I was always impressed with Jael, obviously being smart and strong and stood for her convictions. What I really like is how the ibex can move across cliffs - not that our paths will be smooth, but that our feet would be like an ibex.

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

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.
