Sisera


Sis´uh-ruh

The commander of nine hundred chariots opposing Israel for control of Esdraelon (Judg 4-5). Sisera headed forces of the “kings of Canaan” in (Judg 5:19). Battle was joined “at Taanach, by the waters of Megiddo.” Sisera’s forces were destroyed in retreat, while he fled on foot to the tent of the Kenite woman Jael. Feigning hospitality, she received him into her tent and then killed him (Judg 4:17-22).
