JAEL: (Hebrew= )

Etymology: mountain-goat

The wife of Heber the Kenite (Judg. 4:17-22) was named “Jael.” When the Canaanites were defeated by Barak, Sisera, the captain of Jabin's army, fled and sought refuge with the friendly tribe of Heber, beneath the oaks of Zaanaim. As he drew near, Jael invited him to enter her tent. He did so, and as he lay wearied on the floor he fell into a deep sleep. She then took in her left hand one of the great wooden pins (“nail”) which fastened down the cords of the tent, and in her right hand the mallet, or “hammer,” used for driving it into the ground, and stealthily approaching her sleeping guest, with one well-directed blow drove the nail through his temples into the earth (Judg. 5:27). She then led Barak, who was in pursuit, into her tent, and boastfully showed him what she had done.

1) JEZEBEL: (Hebrew= )

Etymology: chaste

 

the daughter of Ethbaal, the king of the Zidonians, and the wife of Ahab, the king of Israel (1 Kings 16:31)

 

This was the “first time that a king of Israel had allied himself by marriage with a heathen princess; and the alliance was in this case of a peculiarly disastrous kind. Jezebel has stamped her name on history as the representative of all that is designing, crafty, malicious, revengeful, and cruel. She is the first great instigator of persecution against the saints of God. Guided by no principle, restrained by no fear of either God or man, passionate in her attachment to her heathen worship, she spared no pains to maintain idolatry around her in all its splendour. Four hundred and fifty prophets ministered under her care to Baal, besides four hundred prophets of the groves [Revised Version, “prophets of the Asherah'], which ate at her table (1 Kings 18:19). The idolatry, too, was of the most debased and sensual kind.” Her conduct was in many respects very disastrous to the kingdom both of Israel and Judah (21:1-29). At length she came to an untimely end. As Jehu rode into the gates of Jezreel, she looked out at the window of the palace, and said, “Had Zimri peace, who slew his master?” He looked up and called to herchamberlains, who instantly threw her from the window, so that she was dashed in pieces on the street, and his horses trod her under their feet. She was immediately consumed by the dogs of the street (2 Kings 9:7-37), according to the word of Elijah the Tishbite (1 Kings 21:19).

2) JEZEBEL: (Greek= )

Etymology: chaste

A false prophetess in the Book of Revelation (Rev. 2: 20) but some think her name is used as a synonym for an evil woman. She was nevertheless a real person, and her only known "name" or name is Jezebel.

 

It may be noted that she is said to have been the grand-aunt of Dido, the founder of Carthage.

JUNIA: (Greek= ) (Junias)

Etymology: Belongs to Juno

the name of a Christian in Rome who was imprisoned with Paul and Andronicus. Some say he/she wasa Jewish Christian. On what is this based if the etymologyof the word is Greek?

Paul sends greetings to Junia and Andronicus and notes that they were of note among the apostles, and that they were followers of Christ before him (Rom. 16:7).

It is not absolutely clear whether this name is masculine or feminine. If feminine, there is a possibility that this was the wife or sister of Andronicus. However, in the context of the situation described, it seems more likely that Junia was simply another man. This seems to be the assumption of most scholars. Bible:
