Another biblical creature that is also a biblical character’s first name is ‘d’vora,’ bee, and Deborah. Hebrew has only one name for both the prophet and the insect.
Deborah wasn’t only a prophet, she was one of the Judges who judged and ruled over Israel at the time of the Israelites’ fierce war against the Canaanites, who were ruled by their king ‘Yavin,’ (Javin) and the captain of his army, Sisra (Sisera).
“And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, judged Israel at that time. And she lived under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Beth-El in Mount Ephraim; and the people of Israel came up to her for judgment”
Here’s the ‘d’vorah’ in the Bible as an insect:
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall whistle to the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria”
