ACHSAH

ak'-sa (`akhchah; in some copies `akhca' in 1 Chronicles 2:49), ("anklet"):

The daughter of Caleb whom he gave in marriage to his younger kinsman Othniel the son of Kenaz, as a reward for smiting Kiriath-sepher (Joshua 15:16; Judges 1:12). Caleb, the narrative says, established Achsah in the South-country, and in addition, at her asking, gave her certain important springs of water--the "upper basins" and the "nether basins." Professor G. F. Moore identifies these with the groups of springs in Seit ed-Dilbeh (notes on Judges in Polychrome Bible).
