The answer was Gideon.  Quickly moving along, our next judge to mention fought against the wicked Sisera.  God raised up a female judge in Israel, and it was this woman who told the man named Barak that God wanted him to go after Sisera.

Barak went, but he was cowardly about it, so God let the victory over the bad guy go to another woman by the name of Jael who took advantage of nailing Sisera while he was sleeping.  What was the name of the female judge who had instructed Barak?

-Hannah-

-Deborah-

-Ruth-
