Five daughters who reshaped the law for women in ancient Israel
The outstanding judge Deborah and the feisty warrior Jael
A life-saving wise woman of a city under siege
The hospitable woman of Shunem
Lady Wisdom from the book of Proverbs who is the picture of wise living
Readers of the Bible today too often skip over these women’s narratives, overlooking them in favor of more well-known Old Testament characters like Moses or David. But these women’s stories—whether brief or lengthy—all point to aspects of God’s character and help us understand the larger story of God’s workings with humanity.
These women were exceptional for their time, with their decisive and brave actions that reshaped their communities and saved lives. But they were also ordinary women who were resourceful with whatever they had and used it to face the obstacles confronting them. The stories of these women long ago beckon us to also walk boldly in trust, courage, wisdom, and faithfulness.
