(zee' buh) Personal name meaning “slaughter” or “sacrifice.” He and Zalmunna were Midianite kings that Gideon captured and killed because they had killed Gideon's brothers (Judges 8:4-21; see Psalm 83:11; Isaiah 9:4; Isaiah 10:26 ). This account shows the act of blood revenge that often prevailed in that day and marks a turning point in Israel's struggles against Midian.
