Holman Bible Dictionary
(oh' rehb uhnd zee' ehb) Personal names meaning, “raven” and “wolf.” Two Midianite princes captured and executed by the Ephraimites following Gideon's rout of their forces (Judges 7:24-8:3
). The Midianite nobles gave their names to the sites of their deaths, the rock of Oreb near Beth Bareh on the Jordan and the winepress of Zeeb. Israel's deliverance from Midian became proverbial for God's deliverance of His people (Psalm 83:11
; Isaiah 9:4
; Isaiah 10:26
