As Barak did not do on his own what Deborah, a prophetess and leader of Israel, wanted Barak to do which was lead an army of Israel. She said a woman would have the glory of killing Sisera.
Sisera was the army commander for Jabin king of Canaan who reigned from Hazor.
Jael or Yael was married to Heber the Kenite.
Jael or Yael in Hebrew means: Nubian Ibex.
But Ja'el the wife of Heber took a tent
peg, and took a hammer in her hand,
and went softly to him and drove the
peg into his temple, till it went down
into the ground, as he was lying fast
asleep from weariness. So he died.
