Aksah

Aksah was the only daughter of Caleb, who was prince of the Tribe of Judah. She was given in marriage to Othniel, who became one of the Judges of Israel.

When Caleb was leading the Israelites into the land of Israel and conquering it, he said he would give his daughter Aksah in marriage to whoever attacked and captured the city of Debir, also known as Kiriath Sepher.

A man named Othniel accepted the challenge and captured Debir. Caleb then gave his daughter in marriage to Othniel.

Caleb had alloted land to Aksah and Othniel in the Negev. But Aksah later requested springs of water, which Caleb agreed to.

The name Aksah means "adorned."
