Othniel (ŏth'ni-el), lion of God. The successor of Joshua. He was the son of Kenaz, the younger brother of Caleb, of the tribe of Judah; and for his valor in seizing the city of Debir, he was rewarded by the gift of Achsah, the daughter of Caleb, in marriage. He delivered the Hebrews from the bondage in which they had been held for eight years by the Mesopotamians, and during the 40 years of his administration the Hebrews remained faithful to Jehovah. Joshua 15:16-19; Judges 1:11-15; Judges 3:8-11; 1 Chronicles 4:13.
