LAPPIDOTH (‘torches’ or ‘lightning flashes’). The husband of Deborah the prophetess ( Judges 4:4 ). Some commentators take the term to be descriptive of the character of Deborah, ‘a woman of lightning flashes.’ In favour of this they urge the feminine termination -oth , but the same termination is found elsewhere to men’s names, e.g. Meremoth .

T. A. Moxon.
