Achsa, Achsah

Resource Toolbox

Daughter of Caleb, whom he promised as wife to him who should take Kirjath-sepher. Othniel, nephew of Caleb, took it, and Achsa became his wife. At her request for springs of water Caleb gave her the upper springs and the nether springs for the quickening of dry ground. Joshua 15:16-19 ; Judges 1:12-15 ; 1 Chronicles 2:49 . The springs are symbolical of Christ in glory, and the Holy Spirit here, object and power of life with God.
