Neith and the Two Biblical Deborahs: One and the Same By Gary Greenberg. Presented at the annual meeting of the American Research Center in Egypt, Atlanta 1995. The bible makes reference to two separate women named Deborah. One was the nurse to Abraham's son Isaac and the other was, in the much later period of the Judges, a military leader referred to as "a mother in Israel". In this paper I will argue that both Deborahs were mythological figures based on Hebrew recollections of the goddess Neith, the goddess who ruled in the area of Egypt where Israel dwelled in earlier times
