🔼The name Jael in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Jael
The name Jael comes from the root group יעל (ya'al I & II):
The name Jael is pronounced the same as the word for mountain goat, but distinctions in pronunciation were added many centuries after this text was written. Still, for a meaning of the name Jael, both BDB Theological Dictionary and NOBSE Study Bible Name List read Mountain Goat. Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names translates this name with Ibex.
