Out of the many names recorded in the book of Judges, only one of them was a female judge.
Deborah was the fourth judge in the Bible. In the short story of Judges 4-5, she sits at the Palm of Deborah (probably not named after her but the nurse of Rebekah after losing her life in the place). The Israelites came to meet her and get the judgement they deserve.
4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.Judges 4 (KJV)
5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.
She is not only a judge but a prophetess, a warrior, a song writer and an encourager.
Here is the list of the Judges that was listed in the Bible.
- Deborah and Barak
