Old Testament prophetess and judge. See the passage below from Judges that talks about her. At this time the prophetess Deborah, wife of Lappidoth, was judging Israel.
She sent and summoned Barak, son of Abinoam, from Kedesh of Naphtali. Barak summoned Zebulun and Naphtali to Kedesh, and ten thousand men followed him. Deborah also went up with him. So Sisera assembled from Harosheth-ha-goiim at the Wadi Kishon all nine hundred of his iron chariots and all his forces.
The LORD marches before you. Sisera himself dismounted from his chariot and fled on foot. Barak, however, pursued the chariots and the army as far as Harosheth-ha-goiim.
The entire army of Sisera fell beneath the sword, not even one man surviving. Give ear, O princes! O LORD, when you went out from Seir, when you marched from the land of Edom, The earth quaked and the heavens were shaken, while the clouds sent down showers. In the days of Shamgar, son of Anath, in the days of slavery caravans ceased: Those who traveled the roads went by roundabout paths. Gone was freedom beyond the walls, gone indeed from Israel.
When I, Deborah, rose, when I rose, a mother in Israel, New gods were their choice; then the war was at their gates. Not a shield could be seen, nor a lance, among forty thousand in Israel! My heart is with the leaders of Israel, nobles of the people who bless the LORD; They who ride on white asses, seated on saddlecloths as they go their way; Sing of St deborah patron saint to the strains of the harpers at the wells, where men recount the just deeds of the LORD, his just deeds that brought freedom to Israel.
