Lappidoth

lap´i - doth , - dōth ( לפּידות , lappı̄dhōth , "flames," "torches"; the King James Version, Lapidoth ): Deborah's husband ( Judges 4:4 ). The Hebrew name is a feminine plural like Jeremoth (1 Chronicles 7:8 ), Naboth (1 Kings 21:1 ). The plural is probably intensive. Jewish interpreters have identified Lappidoth ("flames") with Barak ("lightning"). Some have taken the words rendered "wife of Lappidoth" ('ēsheth lappı̄dhōth ) as a description of Deborah, and have translated them, "woman of lights," i.e. maker of wicks for the sanctuary; or "woman of flames," referring to her prophetic zeal. These explanations are more interesting than probable.
