Daughter of Caleb, son of Jephunneh, the Kenezite; given by him in marriage to his younger brother, Othniel, for having taken Debir, or Kirjath Sepher (i.e. "the city of the book"), or Kirjath Sanna. Like her large hearted father, she looked for great things through faith in God's promise of the land; and lighting from her ass, and humbly asking for springs, as needed by the south land, she received "the upper and the nether springs" (Joshua 15:15-19; Joshua 15:49; Judges 1:11-15; 1 Chronicles 2:49). Her husband, Israel's judge and savior from Chushan Rishathaim, had through the Spirit of Jehovah the noble faith of the race: Judges 3:8-11. Typically hereby we are taught as children to ask humbly and expect confidently great blessings (Luke 11:13; 1 John 3:22), both the upper or heavenly and the nether or earthly, from our Father (Psalms 81:10; Psalms 84:11; Isaiah 33:16; John 4:13-14; John 7:37-39; John 15:7; Ephesians 3:20).
