Which Biblical women were known for their military victories?

(HINT: Think Old Testament in the times of the judges.)

Well… That’d be none other than Deborah, who accompanied Barak to battle, and Jael, who killed the chief bad guy (Sisera) by driving the point of a tent stake through his skull.  Barak, in fact, wouldn’t ride out to battle unless Deborah went with him. Some say that’s because he was a wimp. Others say that’s because he had respect for Deborah.

Check out Judges 4-5 for details.
