Abstract The brief and apparently simple tale of Achsah’s request for watered land, found in both Judges 1:12-15 and Joshua 15:15-19, is read differently according to the questions asked and the critical reading adopted. In this paper not only is a gendered and postcolonial approach taken, but an imaginary conversation is initiated between Achsah and the reader, allowing sharper contextual connections.
