Achsah: The Woman Who Wanted More
Scripture References—Joshua 15:16, 17; Judges 1:12, 13; 1 Chronicles 2:4, 9
Name Meaning—Adorned, or Bursting the Veil

Family Connections—Achsah was the daughter of Caleb, prince of the tribe of Judah. She was the only girl in the family, and had three brothers (1 Chronicles 4:15). She became the wife of Othniel, son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother. Othniel became one of Israel's judges and had, through the Spirit of God, the noble faith of his race (Judges 3:8-11).

The story of Achsah is told in charming and picturesque detail in the above Scripture. Her father promised her in marriage to the gallant man who was able to capture Debir, or Keriath-sepher which means, "The City of the Book." The feat was accomplished by Othniel, and Caleb gave to his daughter, as a dowry, a portion of the south land. Not satisfied, she wanted springs of water to irrigate her fields, so Caleb gave her the upper springs and the nether springs. Although, as a Jewess, Achsah looked for great things through faith in God's promise of the land, her request for an addition to the generous dowry already bestowed, reveals an element of covetousness in her disposition. W. Mackintosh Mackay in his character-study of Achsah speaks of her as "The Discontented Bride."
