DEBORAH UNDER A PALM TREE MAZE
Deborah & the Palm Tree | God as a Gardener
May 16, 2011The palm tree and/or its branches represented peace, plenty and fruitfulness, grace and elegance, and majesty and military triumph. Juxtaposition to these perspectives is how the palm tree fits into the story of Deborah. In Deborah’s situation, the palm tree signified justice. Deborah held court under the palm tree and distributed justice.
Judges 4:5 And she would sit under the Palm of Deborah
She lived under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the hill country of Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment. Young's Literal Translation and she is dwelling under the palm-tree of Deborah, between Ramah and Beth-El, in the hill-country of Ephraim, and the sons of Israel go up unto her for judgment.
