(zih buhih' ihm) Place name possibly meaning, “hyenas.” One of the cities in the valley of Siddim (Genesis 14:2-3 ) at the southern end of the Dead Sea. The site probably is under water now. Zeboiim was ruled by King Shemeber but under the control of Chedorlaomer, king of Elam. When Shemeber rebelled, Chedorlaomer came to suppress the rebellion. Although the text is not clear, it appears the city was delivered when Abram defeated Chedorlaomer (Genesis 14:16-17 ). Zeboiim was destroyed when God sent fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah (Deuteronomy 29:23; compare Hosea 11:8 ). Recent attempts to identify Zeboiim in the Ebla tablets have been hotly debated.
