Women of the Hebrew Bible, Part 6: Deborah

Deborah (c) 2010 Sheila Orysiek

By Sheila Orysiek

SAN DIEGO –Deborah was a judge in Israel in the time before the kings.  Tradition has it that she sat under a palm tree at the gates of the city.  She was a military leader as well as a prophet.

One of a series of seven women of the Hebrew Bible illustrating the moment in their lives when they were at pivotal point, contributed significantly to subsequent events and/or set a precedent in the history of our people.

The original pen and ink measured 16 x 20.
