Naphtali is praised in the Song of Deborah for placing itself in jeopardy on behalf of Israel (Judges 5:18 ). The tribe joined with Asher and Manasseh to help drive the Midianites out of the land (Judges 7:23 ). During Solomon's reign the territory was designated a separate economic district (1Kings 4:7,1 Kings 4:15 ) and produced Hiram, the king's chief brass worker (1 Kings 7:13-14 ). The Syrians invaded Naphtali during Baasha's reign and inflicted heavy losses (1 Kings 15:20 ). The territory finally succumbed to Tiglath-pileser III in 734 B.C. (2 Kings 15:29 ). See Tribes.
