Fausset's Bible Dictionary
Oreb, Rock of
("raven's cliff".) The scene of Midian's slaughter by Ephraim (Judges 7:25; Judges 8:1; Isaiah 10:26). E. of Jordan. Orbo near Bethshean may represent it. Conder identifies it with a sharp conical peak, 'Ash el Ghorab, "raven's nest." Tuwayl el Diab, a wady and mound, answering to the Press of Zeeb, "the wolf," stands two miles N.W. of 'Ash el Ghorab. If for "ravens" we understand the men of Oreb to have fed Elijah, 'Ash el Ghorab is close to wady Kelt, the traditional Cherith.
