Women of the Bible No. 7 Jael

Jael was not a nice woman!
"Blessed above women shall Jael be the wife of Heber the Kenite, Blessed shall she be above women in the tent. He asked for milk, and she gave him milk; she brought him butter in a lordly dish. She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote through his head, Yea, she pierced and struck through his temples."

Judges Chapter V, vv. 24-26

This story is taken from The Song of Deborah, a song of victory, and one of the oldest examples of such a song in biblical literature.
