Lightning, the son of Abinoam (Judges 4:6 ). At the summons of Deborah he made war against Jabin. She accompanied him into the battle, and gave the signal for the little army to make the attack; in which the host of Jabin was completely routed. The battle was fought (Judges 4:16 ) in the plain of Jezreel (q.v.). This deliverance of Israel is commemorated in Judges 5 . Barak's faith is commended (Hebrews 11:32 ). "The character of Barak, though pious, does not seem to have been heroic. Like Gideon, and in a sense Samson, he is an illustration of the words in Hebrews 11:34 , 'Out of weakness were made strong.'" (See DEBORAH .)
