    Jael

    Wife of Heber the Kenite (see Kenites), an Arab chief in alliance with the Israelites. Sisera, Jabin’s captain, after his defeat took refuge in Jael’s tent and was killed by her either while he was drinking, as seems implied by Judg. 5:24–27, or while he lay asleep, according to the prose account in Judg. 4.
