Reference: Othniel


According to Jg 1:13 the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother. As a reward for taking Kiriath-sepher, he receives Achsah, the daughter of Caleb, for his wife. Othniel is the first mentioned among the 'Judges' of Israel; Cushanrishathaim, king of Mesopotamia, had oppressed the Israelites for eight years, when Jahweh 'raised up a saviour' in the person of Othniel, who fought against the oppressor and overcame him, thus bringing rest to the land.
