Sisera [N] [E] [H]

(battle array ).

  1. Captain of the army of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor. He himself resided in Harosheth of the Gentiles. The particulars of the rout of Megiddo and of Siseras flight and death are drawn out under the heads of BARAK, DEBORAH, JAEL, KISHON. (B.C. 1296.)
  2. After a long interval the name appears in the lists of Nethinim who returned from the captivity with Zerubbabel. ( Ezra 2:53 ; Nehemiah 7:55 ) It doubtless tells of Canaanite captives devoted to the lowest offices of the temple. (B.C. before 536.)
