Deborah was a prophetess, the fourth Judge and the only female judge mentioned in the bible. She is even considered to be a saint in the Catholic Church. She was a brave woman commander and chief of the army of Israel who guided the Jewish nation to attack and conquer Jabin the king of Canaan and their military commander Sisera. The story is recounted in Judges Chapter 4.
